Groaners - The new "Nerdy Jokes" thread

...Most of which hopefully pertain to science/math.

There's a sketch I drew in Math class many months ago which has the periodic table of elements (drawn the same as the real one - however many boxes, and in the right shape), but drawn so instead of having boxes, per se, it had flames, water droplets, leaves, and clouds: fire, water, earth, and wind. Inside each of the "boxes" was a different-sized filled circle, underneath which was a description of it. They were along the lines of "period", "dot", "full stop", "pause", etc, etc, etc. I had to consult many people to think of names for all of them - a lot just involved adding adjectives to the front. Anywho, I labeled it the elemental table of periods and handed it in to my teacher (who doubles as a science teacher and gave me a bonus mark for being clever).

I also drew an even stupider doodle about the table of elements:

Picture two people walking across a floor that has had the periodic table inscribed into it. As one of them crosses the line past argon out of the inscription, his friend looks at him and goes "Hey, are you passing gas?"

...*cough*


So any jokes like these that you'd like to share?

Also:

Two goldfish are sitting in their tank. One says to the other, "You man the guns, I'll drive!"

Not a joke, but you know Beethoven's fifth? The duh-na-na-NUhhh. duh-na-n a-NUHH. Well, that phrase occurs at the beginning, the end... and the exact Phi point of the song.

I think I deleted that one, because it had something like 8 or higher spam messages in a row at the end, and I couldn't be fucked deleting them all individually considering I'd just done so to about 100 other posts.

...I'm starting to worry I was responsible for accidentally deleting the Nerdy Jokes thread. I don't think I deleted it, but there's always that hint of uncertainty when you're trying to delete hundreds of spam posts as quickly as possible. But yeah, I suspect the only way they could have disappeared is if they were deleted.

Snake: Hey Adam, c'mon over here and calculate the length of the opposite side of this angle with the hypotenuse. It'll be great!

Hm. OK. That last post reminds me of a silly story:

I was on an airplane waiting to depart San José Airport. For some reason there wasn't any water for the plane's bathroom yet, and a woman needed to wash her hands. The flight attendants didn't have any bottled water, either. So they gave her one of those tiny bottles of airline vodka and she washed her hands in that.

Ah, good to see I'm not the only one whose threshold for spamminess (or accuracy in measuring it) is lower after deleting a hundred posts.

You've probably seen this before, but I liked it so much I pasted it into my LiveJournal — a rare honour for a joke!

An engineer, a biologist and a mathematician are observing a building. They see 2 people walk in and, after a while, 3 people walk out. Trying to explain how this could be possible, the engineer suggests that they must have made a mistake when taking the measurements of the building. The biologist concludes that the 2 people who went in must have reproduced. The mathematician continues to ponder for a moment, then says "if one more person went in to that building, it would be empty again".

An engineer and a mathematician are in a contest. They're both asked to bring a pot of water to boil its boiling point. The engineer takes his pot, pours some water in it, places it on the heater, and waits until it starts boiling. The mathematician takes his pot, pours some water in it, places it on the heater, and waits until it starts boiling. They are then both asked to bring another pot of water to its boiling point. The engineer takes his pot off the heater, lets it cool down, and places it back on the heater, and waits for it to start boiling. The mathematician takes his pot, dumps out the water, and says, "Now the problem has been reduced to problem A, which has already been solved."


Also:
(sorry to all the non-Americans out there, but I have to do it this way, otherwise it doesn't rhyme)

The integral zee squared dee zee
From one to the cube root of three
Times the cosine
Three pi over nine
Is the lon of the cube root of e.

((12+144+20)+3*sqrt(4))/7+5*11=9^2

a dozen, plus a gross, plus a score;
plus three times the square root of four;
divided by seven;
plus five times eleven;
equals nine squared plus zero, no more.

Hell for physicists: You are in a sealed box with one hammer, which, if falls, will release shards of glass and a poisonous gas, connected to an isotope-decay detector, and one cat.
Hell for forumgoers: Wow shit! :) :D

Yup, I think it disappears when someone else posts.

Nothing. You can't cross a vector with a scaler.
