Famous Scientists...

Rene Descartes (1596-1650) walked into a tavern and ordered a beer. When he set his empty mug down the bartender asked him if he would like another. "I think not," he replied, and instantly disappeared.


Werner Heisenberg (1901-1976) was pulled over for speeding. The officer asked him if he knew how fast he was going. Heisenberg replied, "No, but I know where I am."


Chess-playing Dog

A friend of mine told me he taught his dog to play chess.

"Wow! That must be one smart dog!" I replied.

"Not really," he said. I've beat him three out five times."

A physicist, a biologist, and a mathematician observe two people enter a house and three people leave. The physicist says the measurement must not have been accurate. The biologist says they must have reproduced. The mathematician says if one more person enters, the house will be empty.


Final Exam...

A nervous physics student sat down for his final exam. The professor put his chair on his desk and wrote the exam's only question on the chalk board: "Prove this chair does not exist." The student's hopes faded as he listened to his peers writing furiously. Suddenly he had an inspiration. His two word response received the only A: "What chair?"


Oh, Please!
