And let's not forget:

Now I are a both an engineer and a scientist!".
Shows how little you need to know to be a simulator jock:
1) take a guess, based on what has worked previously.
2) run the sim,
3) tweak a parameter or two,
4) re-run the sim.
5) continue trial and error until it works.
Hmm, where have I seen this mindless procedure work before?
