I think ganesh asked a variation of this question here, if you wanted to check.

Not so much a variation as exactly the same one, but yes, he did.


Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.

Another stupid question:
A man was born in 1969 and died in 1989. He was 25 years of age when he died. How?

Re: Clean Jokes

A mathematician, statistician and accountant were finalist for a position as VP in a large corporation. The hiring committee asked them all the same last question:

The mathematician was first."How much is 500 plus 500 ?" , they asked"1000" he replied without hesitation."Thank you", they dismissed him.

Next the statistician."How much is 500 plus 500?""On the average, 1000 with 95 % confidence" replied the statistician"Thank you", they dismissed him.

Next the accountant."How much is 500 plus 500?""What would you like it to be?" responded the accountant.They hired the accountant.

Question: What does an insomniac agnostic dyslectic do late at night?Answer: Lie awake wondering about the existence of dog.

___________________________________________________

A group of mathematicians and a group of engineers weretaking a train to attend a joint conference. 
Each of the mathematicians had a ticket, but only one of the engineers did. The mathematicians were
snickering about this when one of the engineers returned to the car and shouted, "Conductor's coming!"
All of the engineers hurried back and crammed into a restroom, and when the conductor came by, he knocked on the door

and said,"Ticket please."  The engineer with the ticket passed it under the door, and the conductor punched it

and returned it.  After the conductor left, all the engineers came piling out, and the mathematicians sat there in amazement.

On the return trip the mathematicians decided to do the same thing, so they only purchased one ticket amongst them.

This time,none of the engineers had a ticket.  The mathematicians were snickering again, when an engineer

ran in the car and said "Conductor's coming."   All of the mathematicians piled into one restroom and all

of the engineers into another.  The last engineer in knocked on the restroom of mathematicians and said,

"Ticket, please." He then took the ticket and joined the rest of the engineers.

You have a basket containing 5 apples and there are 5 people in a room. How do you give everyone in the room an apple and still leave one in the basket? There aren't any other apples in the room and you can't take apples back once you've given them to someone because that would be mean.

Or; you are the person handing out the apples, meaning you are one of the 5 people in the room. You hand everyone an apple, handing out 4 apples in total. There is 1 apple left in the basket.

He'd have to be quite a boring person, if he had the ability to travel in time and chose to travel just 5 years into the past. tongue
