Talking Re: Mathematical humor

Newton, Pascal, and Einstein are playing hide-and-go-seek in heaven.

Einstein closes his eyes and starts counting.

Pascal goes and hides behind a cloud.

Newton stays where he is, and draws a 1mx1m square on the floor around him.

Einstein finishes counting and turns around.

"Ah ha, Newton! I found you!"

"No you haven't, you've found one Newton over 1m2 . . . You found Pascal."

Re: Mathematical humor

A real life joke. Happened when i was in college

In babylon, they found a tablet containing Pythogorean triples like

5, 12, 13
12, 35, 37
8, 15, 17,

etc. There were a whole lot of these triplets. Each one was a Pythogorean triplet. However, some OBVIOUS ones were missing.

3, 4,5 -> was missing. This was surprising.
7, 24, 25 was also missing. Some more too, I dont remember which. There was speculation that only triplets satisfying some particular property were there. But what was the property that was considered? No one knew.

I struggled and struggled for a month to find out the "property" that excluded 3, 4, 5 and others. I was unsuccessful. I gave up frustrated.

Later on the "solution" was found. The tablet was an ANSWER sheet given by the teacher to his students!!! They found the "question paper". Obviously 3-4-5 was not there probably bcos it was too easy.

Kya saalaa hasss main khud ke Oopar!!!!

U have heard of multiple ids, have u not? One guy uses different ids. Ever thought of fractional ids? More than one guy uses same id?

Durddum!!
