I recorded a documentary on Singapore's efforts to upgrade their water system by building a dam and a giant sewage system with huge tunnels.  Son Number One discovered it and has watched it several times - it has lots of footage of giant drilling machines, and a huge floating crane carrying a 500 ton piece of concrete.  When he was watching it, he mentioned the engineers.

I asked him, "Would you like to be an engineer when you grow up?"

"Nah", he replied, "I want to work on check-out number six at the A&P grocery store."
