The correct logical reasoning should be: What are the chances that on the same plane there will be two independent bombers, given that there is already a bomber? (And no, that was NOT implied! )
This is the same as the chances that there will be a bomber other than that man if that man hadnt done anything. Hence that stupid mans actions did not alter the chances of a plane bombing in any way whatsoever!
Yep. So the joke is on this man, and since u're right...its on me too
A man is caught going on an airplane with a bomb in his suitcase.
In his interrogation, he is asked for his motives and who sent him to do it.
The man says, that he did not intend to explode the bomb. It was just for self defence.
Detective: "Self Defence?"
Man: "Yep, Self Defence".
Man: "Have you heared of probability theory? what are the chances that on the same plane there will be two independent bombers?"
I once heared that Isaac newton, in formulation of his "second law of gravity", used to make experiments by dropping objects off buildings.
He measured the speed in "windows transpassed per heart beat" (windows - unit of length, heart beat - unit of time)
I tried to find a URL with something about it unsuccessfully.
Somebody heared this story as well?
