Talk:277: Long Light
when I'm at a long light like this, I don't blame the engineer of that light, I blame the city planner who decided to put that light at that intersection when a different system would have worked better (one that adjusts to time of day and/or uses sensors to notice that someone's waiting and there's no traffic). just sayin' 18.104.22.168 13:42, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
- Not that 22.214.171.124 will necessarily see this, but there are traffic engineers, who design intersections (not only the types, number, and arrangement of individual signal assemblies and sensors in a given intersection, but also any timing or sensor-based relationship with other intersections and several other things not signal-related). I think the engineer in the comic is one of these traffic engineers (maybe that's what ...16.171 is calling a city planner?). It's not the one that designed the actual assembly of bulbs, lenses, circuits and housing that makes up a given "signal" - which would also no doubt be an engineer (somewhere in the civil/electrical area I might venture to guess)Brettpeirce (talk) 18:28, 18 February 2014 (UTC

- Or there's another car behind him that we can't see because of reasons of artistic brevity. -Pennpenn 188.8.131.52 04:50, 6 February 2015 (UTC)
The punchline gets funnier based on how far away you are from the forthcoming Tuesday. Only share this comic on Wednesdays.
