Subj: Pregnant
Indian Math Problem (S309b)
From: LABLaughs.com on 12/30/2002
An Indian chief had three wives,
each of whom was pregnant.
The first gave birth to a boy.
The chief was so elated he
built her a teepee made of deer
hide. A few days later, the
second gave birth, also to a
boy. The chief was very happy.
He built her a teepee made of
antelope hide. The third wife
gave birth a few days later,
but the chief kept the details
a secret. He built this one
a two story teepee, made out of
a hippopotamus hide.
At this point, the chief then
challenged the tribe to guess
what had just occurred. Many
tried, unsuccessfully.
Finally, one young brave declared
that the third wife had
given birth to twin boys.
"Correct," said the chief. "How
did you figure it out?"
The warrior answered, "It's elementary.
The value of the
squaw of the hippopotamus is
equal to the sons of the
squaws of the other two hides."

Subj: The
Flagpole (S448)
From: Ossama's Laugh on 1/20/98
and
From: darrell94590 on 8/13/2005
A mathematician and a physicist
are trying to measure the
height of a flag pole using
a long tape measure. The
mathematician takes the tape
measure, walks up to the flag
pole, and begins to shinny up
the pole. A short way up, he
slips and falls down.
The physicist notices a ladder
lying nearby in the bushes.
He leans the ladder against
the pole, but it reaches only
half way up. He climbs
the ladder and tries to shinny up
from there, but he also slips
and falls.
While they sit near the pole
scratching their heads, an
engineer walks by, so the mathematician
and the physicist
tell him their problem.
The engineer notices a crank at
the base of the flag pole.
He turns the crank, and the
flag pole tilts over until it
lies on the ground. The
engineer stretches out the tape
measure, cranks the pole
back up, and tells the mathematician
and the physicist:
'It is 15 meters.'
As the engineer walks off into
the distance, the mathe
matician looks at the physicist
and says: 'Isn't that
just like an engineer? You ask
him for the height, and
he gives you the length.'

Subj: Math,
Engineer, And Applied Math Differences
From: Ossama's Laugh on 1/20/98
A businessman needed to employ
a quantitative type person.
He wasn't sure if he should
get a mathematician, an engineer,
or an applied mathematician.
As it happened, all the
applicants were male. The businessman
devised a test.
The mathematician came first.
Miss How, the administrative
assistant took him into the
hall. At the end of the hall,
lounging on a couch, was a beautiful
woman. Miss How said,
"You may only go half the distance
at a time. When you reach
the end, you may kiss our model."
The mathmatician explained how
he would never get there in a
finite number of iterations
and politely excused himself.
Then came the engineer.
He quickly bounded halfway down the
hall, then halfway again, and
so on. Soon he declared he was
well within accepted error tolerance
and grabbed the beautiful
woman and kissed her.
Finally it was the applied mathematician's
turn. Miss How
explained the rules. The
applied mathematician listened
politely, then grabbed Miss
How and gave her a big smooch.
"What was that about?" she cried.
"Well, you see I'm an
applied mathematician. If I
can't solve the problem, I change
it!"

Subj: Two
Math Professors In A Bar (S326)
From: banghar4
and
From: LABLaughs.com on 4/11/2003
Two math professors are in a
bar. "Isn't it disgusting",
the first one complains, "how
little the general public
knows about mathematics.
The average person does not
know any math beyond high school."
"Well", his colleague replies,
"you're perhaps a bit too
pessimistic."
"I don't think so", the first
one replies. "And anyhow, I
have to go to the washroom now."
He goes off, and the other professor
decides to use this
opportunity to play a prank
on his colleague. He makes a
sign to the pretty, blonde waitress
to come over and says,
"When you bring our drinks,
I'm going to ask you a mathe
matical question. I want
you to answer, 'One third x
cubed.' Can you do that?"
The waitress says, "I don't know
if I can remember that.
One thurr...um..."
"One third x cubed," says the
prof.
"One thir dex cue?," asks the
waitress.
"One"
"One"
"Third"
"Third"
"X"
"X"
"Cubed"
"Cubed"
"One third X cubed"
"One third X cubed"
The waitress leaves, and the
other professor comes back.
They resume their conversation
until a few minutes later
when the waitress brings their
drinks.
The professor says to the waitress,
"Say, do you mind if
I ask you something?"
"Not at all"
"Can you tell me what the integral
of x squared dx is?"
The waitress pauses, then says,
"One third x cubed."
The other professor's mouth drops
wide open, and his
colleage grins smugly.
As the waitress walks away,
she stops, turns, and adds,
"Plus a constant!"

Subj: Polynomials
(Polly Nomial has sex) (S34)
Once upon a time (1/t), pretty
little Polly Nomial was
strolling across a field of
vectors when she came to the
edge of a singularly large matrix.
Now Polly was convergent and
her mother had made it an
absolute condition that she
must never enter such an array
without her brackets on.
Polly, however, who had changed
her variables that morning and
was feeling particularly
badly behaved, ignored this
condition on the grounds that
it was insufficient, and made
her way in amongst the complex
elements.
Rows and columns enveloped her
on all sides. Tangents
approached her surface.
She became tensor and tensor.
Suddenly two branches of a hyperbola
touched her at a single
point. She oscillated
violently, lost all sense of direction,
and went completely divergent.
As she reached a turning point
she tripped over a square root
that was protruding from the
erf, and she plunged headlong
down a steep gradient. When she
was differentiated once more,
she found herself, apparently
alone, in a nonEuclidean space.
She was being watched, however.
That smooth operator, Curly
Pi, was lurking inner product.
As he numerically analyzed
her, his eyes devoured her curvilinear
coordinates, and a
singular expression crossed
his face. Was she still
convergent, he wondered.
He decided to integrate improperly
at once.
Hearing a common fraction behind
her, Polly rotated and saw
Curly approaching her with his
power series expanding. She
could see by his degenerate
conic that he was up to no good.
"What a symmetric little polynomial
you are," he said. "I
can see that your angles have
lots of secs."
"Oh sir," she protested, "keep
away from me. I haven't got
my brackets on."
"Calm yourself, my dear", said
our suave operator. "Your
fears are purely imaginary."
"I, i," she thought. "Perhaps
he's homogeneous."
"What order are you?" the brute
demanded.
"Seventeen," replied Polly.
"I suppose you've never been
operated on?"
"Of course not," Polly cried
indignantly. "I'm absolutely
convergent."
"Come, come," said Curly.
"Let's go off to a decimal place,
and I'll take you to the limit!"
"Never," gasped Polly.
"Abscissa," he swore, using the
vilest oath he knew. His
patience was gone. Coshing
her over the coefficient with
a log until she was powerless,
Curly removed her discon
tinuities. He stared at
her significant places, and began
smoothing out her points of
inflection. Poor Polly. The
algorithmic method was now her
only hope. She felt his
hand tending to her asymptotic
limit. Her convergence
would soon be gone forever.
There was no mercy, for Curly
was a heavyside operator.
Curly's radius squared itself.
Polly's loci quivered. He
integrated by parts. He
integrated by partial fractions.
After he cofactored, he performed
RungeKutta on her. The
complex beast even went all
the way around and did a
contour integration. Curly
went on operating until he
satisfied her hypothesis, then
he exponentiated and became
completely orthogonal.
When Polly got home that night
her mother noticed that she
was no longer piecewise continuous,
but had been truncated
in several places. As
the months went by, Polly's
denominator increased monotonically.
Finally she went to
l'Hospital and generated a small
but pathological function
which left little surds all
over the place and drove Polly
to deviation.
The moral of the story is, "If
you want to keep your
expressions convergent, never
allow them a single degree
of freedom."

Subj: Pythagorean's
Theorem
A tribe of Native Americans generally
referred to their
woman by the animal hide with
which they made their blanket.
Thus, one woman might be known
as Squaw of Buffalo Hide,
while another might be known
as Squaw of Deer Hide. This
tribe had a particularly large
and strong woman, with a
very unique (for North America
anyway) animal hide for her
blanket. This woman was
known as Squaw of Hippopotamus
hide, and she was as large and
powerful as the animal from
which her blanket was made.
Year after year, this woman entered
the tribal wrestling
tournament, and easily defeated
all challengers; male or
female. As the men of
the tribe admired her strength and
power, this made many of the
other woman of the tribe
extremely jealous. One
year, two of the squaws petitioned
the Chief to allow them to enter
their sons together as a
wrestling tandem in order to
wrestle Squaw of the Hippopot
amus hide as a team. In
this way, they hoped to see that
she would no longer be champion
wrestler of the tribe.
As the luck of the draw would
have it, the two sons who
were wrestling as a tandem met
the squaw in the final and
championship round of the wrestling
contest. As the match
began, it became clear that
the squaw had finally met an
opponent that was her equal.
The two sons wrestled and
struggled vigorously and were
clearly on an equal footing
with the powerful squaw.
Their match lasted for hours
without a clear victor.
Finally the chief intervened
and declared that, in the
interests of the health and
safety of the wrestlers, the
match was to be terminated and
that he would declare a winner.
The chief retired to his teepee
and contemplated the great
struggle he had witnessed, and
found it extremely difficult
to decide a winner. While
the two young men had clearly
outmatched the squaw, he found
it difficult to force the
squaw to relinquish her tribal
championship. After all, it
had taken two young men to finally
provide her with a
decent match. Finally,
after much deliberation, the chief
came out from his teepee, and
announced his decision. He
said...
"The Squaw of the Hippopotamus
hide is equal to the sons
of the squaws of the other two
hides"

Subj: Polish
Scientists Steal A Plane
A bunch of Polish scientists
decided to flee their repressive
government by hijacking an airliner
and forcing the pilot to
fly them to a western country.
They drove to the airport,
forced their way on board a
large passenger jet, and found
there was no pilot on board.
Terrified, they listened as the
sirens got louder. Finally,
one of the scientists suggested
that since he was an experimentalist,
he would try to fly the
aircraft.
He sat down at the controls and
tried to figure them out.
The sirens got louder and louder.
Armed men surrounded the
jet. The would be pilot's
friends cried out, "Please, please
take off now!!! Hurry!!!!!!"
The experimentalist calmly replied,
"Have patience. I'm just
a simple pole in a complex plane."

a hydrant.
What would you do?
P: I would keep walking, as there
is no problem to solve.
M: I would disconnect the hose

Subj: Noah
And Two Snakes (S73)
From: Anaise on 980623
After the Great Flood was over,
Noah gently eased the Ark
down on top of a Turkish mountain
range. Once everything
was secured, he got off and
personally supervised the
release of the animals on board.
As each pair was released
from the hold to go hopping,
crawling and fluttering away,
Noah said to them "Go forth
and multiply!"
At one point, a pair of snakes
came slithering down the
ramp together. Noah addressed
them as he had all the
others: "Go forth and multiply!"
The snakes looked at one
another in embarassment, and
then replied "We can't. We're
adders."
Well, this set Noah to thinking.
He bid the snakes to wait
there for a little while.
Then he went down to the hold,
gathered up his carpentry tools
(left over from the big
Arkbuilding endeavor 40 days
and nights ago, I suppose),
and then set off into the forest.
He returned later
dragging along a bunch of fallen
logs.
Then there was furious activity:
Noah was sawing, planing,
hammering away at the logs.
When he was finished, he
presented to the snakes a newly
built, roughhewn table.
Then he said to them again,
"Go forth and multiply!"
"But we're adders!" the snakes
moaned. Noah said, "Yes,
but even adder can multiply
using log tables!"
