Student: "It's 42!" Teacher: "Very good! - And who can tell me what 6 times 7 is?" Same student: "It's 24!" "That math prof's marriage is falling apart!" "No wonder! He's into scientific computing - and she's incalculable!" Trigonometry for farmers: swine and coswine... Life is complex: it has both real and imaginary components. There are 10 kinds of mathematicians. Those who can think binarily and those who can't... Q: How can you tell that Harvard was planned by a mathematician?

Some time passes, some noises are heard, and soon a doctor comes saying that three human beings had just left the car. The panel members' opinions: The biologist: They have had a baby. The physicist: There should have been a third person, hidden in the car from the beginning. Otherwise, conservation laws would have been violated. The mathematician: The car will become empty again when the next person enters it.
