Bagsiden: Her er verdens vist nok bedste joke...
Fornylig dumpede en tekst, som prætenderer at være intet mindre end ‘The Most Brilliant Joke Ever Written’ op på min skærm. Den har allerede vakt almindelig opsigt ovre på fjæsbogen, og nu får I den også her. Alle ingeniører forstår den (ellers må I lige slå enheden pascal op):
”One day, Einstein, Newton, and Pascal meet up and decide to play a game of hide and seek. Einstein volunteered to go first. As he counted, Pascal ran away scrambling to find a great hiding place. Giddily, he squeezed into a crawl space sure that he would win this time as this was his best hiding spot to date and Newton surely wouldn’t find an equal.
Newton on the other hand, stood right in front of Einstein, pulled out a piece of chalk and drew a box on the ground of roughly 1x1 meters. Once this was completed, he sat down neatly inside the box and waited for Einstein to finish counting.
When Einstein opened his eyes, he of course saw Newton and with a bit of disappointment said: “I found you, Newton, you lose”... but Newton replied: “On the contrary, you are looking at one Newton over a square meter... Pascal loses!”

Hvorefter Karin Mandix straks fulgte op med endnu en vits i samme genre:
”An infinite number of mathematicians walk into a bar. The first one says: ”I’ll have a pint for me, half a pint for the guy behind, a quarter for the guy behind him, an eighth for the guy behind him ... ”
Bartender breaks in and says ”Stop right there!” and pours two pints. And then says: ”That’s the trouble with you mathematicians. You don’t know your limits.”

Den forstod alle ingeniører heldigvis også!
