Re: Mathematician Joke

... Dude, that was lame.


Boy let me tell you what:
I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.
And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.

Wasn't this Newton?  In a letter to Robert Hooke, I believe.  Hooke was reportedly a short man, so the remark may have been partly a joke at Hooke's expense!

There's also the crank scientist's version of this quotation: "If others have seen further than me, it is because giants have stood on my shoulders."

Re: Mathematician Joke

Oh NO! I think you may be right!

I have just done a little research, and Einstein is sometimes credited with saying it, but Newton said it first - so "Isaac Newton" would be the correct attribution.

Thanks NIH.

Physicist joke

There was a serious case of a bird flu and three scientists were called to investigate.

The biologist dissected the chicken and checked for any virus in the chicken.

The chemist went to the neighbouring river and checked for any poisonous chemicals in the river.

The physicist just looked at the chicken and said, "Assuming that the chicken is a perfect sphere..."
