A reporter asked three specialists to give her the value of Pi:

Mathematician: Pi is exactly the ratio of the circumference of a circle and its diameter.

Programmer: Pi is exactly 3.1415926535 for purposes of precision on most operating systems.

Engineer: Pi is 3

A Meteorologist, an Engineer and a Computer Scientist were driving a Jeep through the desert, when all of a sudden the jeep stopped. All three of them open the hood and make suggestions on how to fix the jeep.

Meteorologist: The Sun is at its peak, the engine cant run because its too hot. We need to wait for the sun to go down and then start up the engine.

Engineer: I dont fully agree with you. Yes the engine is over-heated, but we just need to wait for it to cool down some and then we can start it back up and be on our way.

Computer Scientist: Hey everybody. I have an idea, lets all get back into the jeep, open and close the doors three times and see what happens.

Math Teacher: When taking the integral of this equation you have to remember to keep the negative sign, it makes all the difference in the world.

Why is god like a civil engineer? Because he built the human body and only a civil engineer would build a waste disposal system in the middle of a recreational facility.

What did they call the Midget fortune teller who escaped from Jail?

Great jokes, I loved the jeep one.

School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But - nobody's perfect, so why practice?

There are three kinds of people in the world, those who can count and those who can't.

There are 10 types of people in the world, those who can count in binary and those who can't.

There are two kinds of people; those who do the work and those who take the credit. Try to be in the first group; there is less competition there.

there are too kinds of people in this world! those who can spel and thos who cant

There are infinite types of people; those who...

I don't get this one... Can someone explain?

There are 10 types of people in the world, those who can count in binary and those who can't.

There are 10 types of people in the world. Those who know binary and those who have lives.

There are 2 types of people in the world. Those who separate people into two groups and those who don't.

Great jokes. I've never heard of any of them before. The second set of jokes were especially full of humour, enough to keep someone laughing for quite a bit of time.

Do engineers need to round everything down?

Actually I never watch Star Wars and not interested in it anyway, but I choose a Yoda card as my avatar in honor of our great friend bobbym who has passed away. May his adventurous soul rest in peace at heaven.
