Wow! I tend to think that the engineers 'have it made', but maybe I have
a special example of my dad; not 'made' as in 'rich', but as a creative
individual who pulled himself up from nothing with only his 'noggin and
is doing well.

Now physics, on the other hand, I cannot in good conscience suggest as a
lucrative field for any young person to go into (unless I can have a
good talk with him), and especially not for a woman (unless I can have
*two* good talks with her :-)).
