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
A new look at quadratic equations? Read:- 'a^{2}' below as "a
squared," 'b^{2}' below as "b squared," etc. If a = b (so I say) [a
= b] And we multiply both sides by a Then we'll see that a^{2
} [a^{2} = ab] When with ab compared Are the same. Remove b^{2}. OK? [a2-b2
= ab-b2] Both sides we will factorize. See? Now each side contains a - b. [(a+b)(a-b) =
b(a-b)] We'll divide through by a Minus b and olĂ© a + b = b. Oh whoopee!
[a+b = b] But since I said a = b b + b = b you'll agree? [b+b = b] So if b
= 1 Then this sum I have done [1+1 = 1] Proves that 2 = 1. Q.E.D. ...from PeterW

From: Karen REMOVEbruceandkaren@erols.com I lost you exactly half way
When I saw that division by a If a=b Than only with c Can we demonstrate what you don't
say a less b times b plus a = ba less b, that's ok But divide & dump b
Is -b, see? So c has to be b+a From: klein_bottle@hotmail.com (Jonah Edwards)
If you integrate zee squared dee zee >From one to the cube root of three
Multiplied by cosine Of three pi over nine You get natural log of the cube root of e
Here's a limerick I picked up off the net a few years back - looks better on paper. 3_ \/3
/ | 2 3 X pi 3_ | z dz X cos(--------) = ln (\/e ) | 9 / 1 Which,
of course, translates to: Integral z-squared dz from 1 to the cube root of 3 times the
cosine of three pi over 9 equals log of the cube root of 'e'. And it's correct, too.
A mathematician named Klein Thought the Mobius Band was divine. Said he, "If you glue
The edges of two You get a weird bottle like mine." From: rjmnapa@aol.com (Renee )
Practical Application: He's teaching her arithmetic, He said it was his mission, He kissed
her once, he kissed her twice and said, "Now that's addition." As he added smack by smack
In silent satisfaction,
She sweetly gave the kisses back and said, "Now that's subtraction."
Then he kissed her, she kissed him, Without an explanation, And both together smiled and said,
"That's multiplication." Then Dad appeared upon the scene and Made a quick decision. He
kicked that kid three blocks away
And said, "That's long division!" Pi vs e Pi goes on and on and on ...
And e is just as cursed. I wonder: Which is larger When their digits are reversed?
