Go for it! Get useful work out of them!

Hey! Where are the engineers here? How are you going to get useful WORK out of someone when his job is to ensure that end of the table stays in one place?!

I think you need to redefine your concept of useful!

It's a good engineering solution. Basically, if it works, it's neat.

It's the definition of work, not useful. *sigh* I thought pedantic mechanical engineering humor would be more successful on this site. Perhaps my joke was TOO lame. Explanation at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Work_physics - in particular, apply first shown formula to force applied to table by co-op.

At least one of us got it. Took me a bit, but then, it's been a while since I've considered work in the kinematics of objects (cooling work, etc, is a little more recent.)

Oh I *got* it - I avoided any mention of work, other than in passing (and in the same context as it's used in the cartoon), as I knew I'd be in trouble over that one!

Heh. Emotional support is more manly than asking for help to move something.

Hmm. In my experience, Pride comes shortly before you drop it on your foot. Then you need the emotional support anyway...
