Re: I love engineers

Bah, yer telling it wrong. Mainly because I work with engineers, scientists and mathematicians I have a lot of the three types jokes.

Premise is that all odd are prime.

Mathematician goes:

3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, 9 is not prime. 9 is an exception, therefore premise is false.

Scientist goes:

3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, 9 is not prime, 11 is prime, 13 is prime. 9 is likely to be an observation error, premise appears to be correct, and I need a six figure grant to improve the accuracy of measurement equipment.

Engineer goes:

3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, 9 is prime, 11 is prime, 13 is prime....
