Hey look buddy. I'm an Engineer. That means I solve problems. Not problems like "What is beauty?" Because that would fall under the purview of your conundrums of philosophy. I solve practical problems. For instance, how am I gonna stop some big mean muther hubbard from tearing me a structurally superfluous behind? The answer? Is a gun. And if that don't work, use more gun. Like this heavy caliber tripod lil' ole number, designed by me, and built by me. And you best hope, I don't point it at you.
And for the steampunk fans we have a strange looking helmet that was first bought at Disney World by "pogo*the*clown" and "steampunked out" for a measly $41.00 on ebay. While I personally find it goofy looking as hell, somebody probably likes it.
