The Cycle Mechanic
> A mechanic was removing a cylinder-head from the motor of a Harley
> motorcycle when he spotted a well-known cardiologist in his shop.
> The cardiologist was there waiting for the service manager to come
> take a look at his bike when the mechanic shouted across the garage,
> "Hey Doc, want to take a look at this?"
> The cardiologist, a bit surprised, walked over to where the mechanic
> was working on the motorcycle. The mechanic straightened up, wiped
> his hands on a rag and asked, "So Doc, look at this engine. I open
> its heart, take the valves out, repair any damage, and then put them
> back in, and when I finish, it works just like new.
> So how come I make $39,675 a year (a pretty small salary) and you get
> the really big bucks($1,695,759) when you and I are doing basically
> the same work?"
> The cardiologist paused, smiled and leaned over, then whispered to
> the mechanic...
> "Try doing it with the engine running."
