Looking from the outside, I think the field of engineering is a pretty cool one, and I think engineers as a group are possibly the most productive members of society in terms of the actual value of their work.
It's too bad that engineering is a field occupied mostly by geeks. A bodybuilding engineer would be a pretty impressive brawn-brains combo. There must be at least a few here. What field are you in and how do you relate to your geeky co-workers?
Also, how would you rank the various engineering fields?
