During the French Revolution, three men were led to the guillotine, a doctor, a lawyer, and an engineer.

The doctor was first.  The executioner released the blade, it fell swiftly, but stopped six inches above the victim's neck.  The crowd roared, "It's a miracle!"  So the doctor was let go.

Next, the lawyer.  Again the blade dropped, this time only three inches from him.  Once more the crowd shouted for his release.

Last, it was the engineer's turn.  As they took him up the steps, he looked up, considered carefully, and remarked "You know, I think I see the problem."
