The following was sent to me by a member who has requested that they remain synonymous (Shameless use of Mac-es.) ... it is reported to be a copy of the final exam to receive an engineering degree from the University of West Virginia:

1. Which of the following cars will rust out the quickest when placed on blocks in your front yard?

A - 1965 Ford Fairlane
B - 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle
C - 1964 Pontiac GTO.

2 . If your uncle builds a still that operates at a capacity of 20 gallons of shine per hour, how many car radiators are necessary to condense the product?

3 . A pulpwood cutter has a chain saw that operates at 2,700 rpm. The density of the pine trees in a plot to be harvested is 470 per acre. The plot is 2.3 acres in size. The average tree diameter is 14 inches. How many Budweiser Tallboys will it take to cut the trees?

4 . If every old refrigerator in the Raleigh County vented a charge of R-12 simultaneously, what would be the decrease in the ozone layer?

5 . A front porch is constructed of 2 x 8 pine on 24-inch centers with a field rock foundation. The span is 8 feet and the porch length is 16 feet. The porch floor is 1 inch rough sawn pine. When the porch collapses, how many hound dogs will be killed?

6 . A man owns a house and 3.7 acres of land in a hollow with an average slope of 15%. The man has 5 children. Can each of the children place a mobile home on the man's land?

7 . A 2-ton pulpwood truck is overloaded and proceeding 900 yards down a steep grade on a secondary road at 45 mph. The brakes fail. Given the average traffic loading of secondary roads, what are the chances that the truck will strike a vehicle that has a muffler?

8 . An oil field operates a NFPA Class 1, Division 2 Hazardous Area. The well employs 120 miners per shift. A gas warning is issued at the beginning of 3rd shift. How many cartons of unfiltered cigarettes will be smoked during the shift?

9 . At a reduction in gene pool variability rate of 7.5% per generation, how long will it take a town that has been bypassed by the interstate to breed a country-western singer?
