What is 2 times 2?

Several scientists were all posed the following question: “What is 2 X 2 ?”

The engineer whips out his slide rule (so it’s old) and shuffles it back and forth, and finally announces “3.99″.

The physicist consults his technical references, sets up the problem on his computer, and announces “it lies between 3.98 and 4.02″.

The mathematician cogitates for a while, then announces: “I don’t know what the answer is, but I can tell you, an answer exists!”

Philosopher smiles: “But what do you mean by 2 X 2 ?”

The logician replies: “Please define 2 X 2 more precisely.”

The sociologist: “I don’t know, but is was nice talking about it”.

Behavioral Ecologist: “A polygamous mating system”.

Medical Student: “4″.
All others looking astonished : “How did you know?”

Medical Student : “I memorized it.”

Lol, Rooster, maybe that erosion, "accidents" or other "influences" could reduce or increase the size or number of certain matters, units, parts (including compounds or compositions), if referring to physical, chemical or financial (and other) domains. And in case of commercial policy, "the client or boss is nearly always right".

I see that this time, they didn't ask the accountant, who would have given his stock answer, "What do you want 2x2 to be?"  :D

Exactly, T(h)ink, there was such a joke about an accountant giving this answer.


Ha ha, thy tongue in thy cheek, does cheek ever get a bit sore spot there  :D or anything, O'tink?  ;)   <3   (Unfortunately in this case all too accurate, however, I fear...)

Um... I switch cheeks when one starts getting sore.  :) <3

Oh perfect first all-out laugh this morning yet! :D  :P  <3

<3 :)

Oh, Marianne, and we forgot the social worker:  "What do you feel 2x2 should be?"

Lol, T(h)ink, that is an idea (you are making me very curious, as certain people consider them as "kidnappers", while others say that they are devoted helpers)  —  so, what would you propose for the social worker?

Oh, what I said above:  the social worker asks the client what the client feels 2x2 should be (because, after all, all opinions are equally valid).  :D

Okay, Marianne and Tink, I have another one:

Answer from politician: Well that depends on how much you contribute to my re-election campaign!

Good one, Virginia, and so true.  :(

Virginia and T(h)ink: excellent! :)<3

Marianne, this reminds me of an actual research study I read about long ago...a group of brilliant geniuses v. a group of, well, intellectually disabled tried to figure out the correct code for punching two buttons, R and L ...the geniuses never did figure it out, while the morons got the correct answer instantly...

...the code was just to punch the right-hand button always!

Marianne Virginia Feb 5

Lol, Virginia, yes, and there are quite a few stories and jokes in which "simple people" are solving a problem, when geniuses fail.
