Nerd Post Alert!

Terrible Nerd Jokes!
A physicist, a biologist, and a mathematician were observing an empty house. As they watched, two people entered the house. Shortly after, three people left the house.

The physicist said, "Aha! Our initial assumption was invalid."

The biologist said, "No, I believe they simple multiplied."

The mathematician said, "You know, if one more person enters that house it will be empty again."

Wait, they get worse:

Why do mathematicians tend to confuse Christmas and Halloween?
Click here and then scroll down for the answer (blogger won't do extended entry). Think carefully about it first.

If you got the second one and didn't groan, proceed directly to your nearest Mathematics department for an examination.

Ouch. I can't believe I followed a link all the way to another site just to read a bad joke about base 8 v. 10. You've *seriously* got to upgrade to WordPress, MT, Powerblogs or PMachine - anything but Blogger/Blog*Spot.

I'm guessing that. Took me 3 minutes, I'm sad to say. My first guess was something Hex, but obviously not that.

I got it. And that frightens me, as I'm an avowed arithmephobe. I now have to reevaluate all my assumptions about myself. Excuse me, but I must go curl into a ball and whimper like a little girl.

Not everything is worse than Blogger. Try LiveJournal. I'd rather not even read that, but I have too many friends who think that it is the be all and end all of blogging. And it's a lot of whiny "my cat ran away and was run over by a truck" stories too.

MT supposedly isn't free, one reason not to try. I use WordPress, and enjoy it quite a bit, and while it's easy to set up, it's not as easy as Blogger is.

But I hadn't heard many complaints about Blogger before. What other ones are there that make people dislike it?

Egghead jokes???
I got one.

Four men were bragging about how smart their cats were.

The first man was an Engineer, the second man was an Accountant, the third man was a Chemist, the fourth man was a Government employee.

To show off the Engineer called to his cat, "T-square, do your stuff." T-square pranced over to a desk, took out some paper and a pen and promptly drew a circle, a square, and a triangle.

Everyone agreed that was pretty smart.

The Accountant said his cat could do better. He called his cat and said, "Spreadsheet, do your stuff." Spreadsheet went out into the kitchen and returned with a dozen cookies. He divided them into 4 equal piles.

Everyone agreed that was good.

The Chemist said his cat could do better. He called his cat and said, "Beaker, do your stuff." Beaker got up, walked over to the fridge, took out a quart of milk, got a 10 oz. glass from the cupboard and poured exactly 8 oz. of milk without spilling a drop.

Everyone agreed that was good.

Then the three men turned to the government employee and said, "What can your cat do?" The employee called to his cat and said, "Coffee break, do your stuff."

Coffee break jumped to his feet, ate the cookies, drank the milk, peed on the paper, sexually assaulted the other three cats, claimed he injured his back while doing so, filed a grievance claim for unsafe working conditions, put in for workers compensation and went home for the rest of the day on sick leave.

111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987,654,321

Neat tricks with numbers.
Do you want to know how 64 really equals 65?

OK, OK, since you insist here`s an interactive geometry page.

An engineer, chemist, and mathematician were at a hotel for a convention, after a days worth of 'conventioning' they were dog tired and went to bed. Midway through the night the engineer wakes up and sees that a fire has started in a wastebasket, thinking calmly the engineer simply puts the serving tray from dinner over the wastebasket and goes back to sleep as the fire is smoothered. Amazingly enough that night at about the same time the chemist wakes up and sees a fire in *his* wastebasket and thinking calmly, he uses the water in the glass next to his bed and puts out the fire without wasting a single drop. He then goes back to sleep. By the most incredible circumstances, the mathmematician wakes up to see his wastebasket is on fire...looking at the fire the mathematician solumnly proclaims, "There exists a solution." and goes back to sleep.

Q: How does a physicist prove that a cow gives milk?

A: First, assume a spherical cow...

And I got the second joke right away. Sick, isn't it?[PG]
