These engineering and science tech-centric
jokes, song parodies, anecdotes and assorted humor have been collected from friends
and websites across the Internet. I check back occasionally for new fodder, but
it seems all the old content is reappearing all over (like this is). The humor is
light-hearted and clean and sometimes slightly assaultive to the easily-offended,
so you are forewarned. It is all workplace-safe.
Humor #1,
#2, #3
10) e is less challenging to spell than pi.
9) e ~=2.718281828459045, which can be easily memorized to its billionth place, whereas
pi needs "skills" to be memorized. 8) The character
for "e" is so cheap that it can be found on a keyboard, but pi is special (it's under
"special symbols" in word processor programs).
7) Pi is the bigger piece of pie.
6) e has an easy limit definition and infinite series;
the limit definition of pi and the infinite series are much harder.
5) With e you understand what it is even though you
start learning it late when you are in pre-calculus, but pi, even after five or six years
it's still hard to know what it really is.
4) People mistakenly confuse Euler's Number (e) with Euler's
Constant (gamma). There is no confusion with the one and only pi.
3) e is named after a person, but pi stands for itself.
2) Pi is much shorter and easier to say than "Euler's Number."
And the number one reason why e is inferior to pi is...
1) To read pi, you don't have to know that Euler's name is really pronounced
