What is YOUR Favorite Geek Joke? Einstein, Newton, and Pascal Play Hide and Seek

Here’s one of mine, what’s YOURS?

One day, Einstein, Newton, and Pascal meet up and decide to play a game of hide and seek. Einstein volunteered to be “It.” As Einstein counted, eyes closed, to 100, Pascal ran away and hid, but Newton stood right in front of Einstein and drew a one meter by one meter square on the floor around himself. When Einstein opened his eyes, he immediately saw Newton and said “I found you Newton,” but Newton replied, “No, you found one Newton per square meter. You found Pascal!”.

  1. A classic one… but my favorite however :

    There is 10 types of people : those who can count in binary, and the others.

  3. Two atoms walk into a bar. One says, “Damnit! I just lost an electron!” The other atom says, “Are you sure?” The first one says, “I’m positive.”

  4. Heisenberg gets pulled over by the police. The officer asks, "Do you know how fast you were going?" Heisenberg replies, "No, but I can tell you where I am."

  5. A police officer pulls over a car driven by an electron. He walks up to the car's window and says to the electron. "Do you know how fast you were going sir?"
    The electron replies,
    "No, but I know where I am."

  6. Two mathematicians, Joe and Richard , were having dinner in
    a restaurant. They were arguing about the average
    mathematical knowledge of the American public. Richard
    claimed that this average was woefully inadequate while Joe
    maintained that it was surpassingly high.

    "I'll tell you what, "said Richard, "when I get back from the
    bathroom we'll ask our waitress a simple calculus question. If
    she gets it right, I'll pick up dinner. If not, you do, okay?"
    they agreed, but once he'd left Joe called the waitress over.

    "When my friend comes back, " he told her, " he's going to
    ask you a question; you should respond "one third x cubed'
    no matter what the question is; got that? There's twenty
    bucks in it for you." She happily agreed to the gag.

    Richard returned from the men's room and called the
    waitress over. "The food was wonderful," he stated,
    "incidentally, do you know what the integral of x squared is?"

    The waitress looked startled, then pensive, almost pained.
    She looked around the room, at her feet , made gurgling
    noises, (Joe was starting to sweat) and finally said, "Umm,
    one third x cubed?"

    Joe beamed in relief as an astonished Richard paid the
    check and a clearly irritated waitress muttered under her
    breath, "… plus a constant."

  7. A psychiatrist decides to do an experiment with an engineer, a physicist and a mathematician. For 1 week, he locks each in a room with nothing but bottles of water and cans of beans. After a week, he checks on each. In the engineers room he finds the cans of beans are broken into jagged pieces and the engineer is well fed. The psychiatrist asks the engineer, "What did you do?" The engineer responds, "Well, I found the tensile strength of the can and overcame it."
    The psychiatrist nods, makes a couple note the checks on the next room. Inside is a well fed physicist surrounded by cans, each with a dent in exactly the same place and the lid popped open. The psychiatrist asks the physicist, "What did you do?" The physicist responds, "Well I calculated where on the can I could dent so all the force would be directed to the lid."
    The psychiatrist nods, makes a couple note the checks on the next room. Inside the cans of beans are left almost exactly as they started with only one missing. The psychiatrist looks around until he finally finds the mathematician in a corner, grasping a can of beans, rocking back and forth, saying
    "I define the can as open…I define the can as open…I define the can as open."

  14. One I came up with while I was in college, studying computer science. If you're not a software geek, you probably won't get it:

    I called the janitor the other day to see what he could do about my dingy linoleum floor. He said he would have been happy to loan me a polisher, but that he hadn't the slightest idea what he had done with it. I told him not to worry about it – that as a programmer it wasn't the first time I had experienced a buffer allocation failure due to a memory error.

  15. A biologist, a physicist and a mathematician are standing in front of a house, observing. During this time, two people enter the house and three come out. 'Ah! It's a nice example of reproduction', the biologist says. 'I think it's a faulty measurement', the physicist says. The mathematician responds: 'I think if one person enters the house now, the house will be empty again' …

  16. A physicist, an engineer, and a statistician were all going hunting together. While crouched behind a fallen log, a huge buck walked out in front of them. The physicist shot first, but missed three yards to the left. Taking wind resistance into account, the engineer fired next, but missed three yards to the right. The statistician then began jumping up and down excitedly, yelling "we got him! We got him!"

  18. A biologist, physicist and mathematician are hiking and see a white goat. The biologist says: "Clearly white goats live here!". Physicist replies: "No, the only think we can say is, that at least one white goat lives here.". And mathematician says: "gentleman, we can only say that here lives at least one goat which is from at least one side white"
