Practical Engineering – Cool channel !. Check this out ! ( description from the channel)

Grady Hillhouse is a professional civil engineer and hobbyist everything else in San Antonio, Texas.

Randall Munroe said, “You can look at practically any part of anything manmade around you and think, Some engineer was frustrated while designing this. It’s a little human connection.” My goal for Practical Engineering is to increase exposure and interest in the field of engineering. I’m trying to highlight that connection between the world around us and the energy, passion, and thought that goes into making it a nicer place to live.
