engineer dies and goes to hell. He's hot and miserable, so he decides
to take action. The A/C has been broken for a long time, so he fixes it
and things cool down. The moving walkway motor jammed, so he fixes that
too. The TV is problematic so he tweaks the Satellite dish connection
and now they get hundreds of high def channels.
day, God decides to look down on Hell to see how his grand design is
working out and notices that everyone is happy and enjoying umbrella
drinks. He asks the Devil "What's up?" The Devil says, "Things are great down here since you sent us an engineer." "What?" says God. "An engineer? I didn't send you one of those. Obviously a mistake.
