2022-09-30 Friday Humor (Thinking outside the box....)

Enjoy this last day of September. Enjoy beautiful sunrises and sunsets. For those in the north, enjoy the changing of the colors. Have a terrific weekend and those traveling to the PTC conference - safe and effective travels....

 

An engineer, a physicist and a mathematician have to build a fence around a flock of sheep, using as little material as possible. The engineer forms the flock into a circular shape and constructs a fence around it. The physicist builds a fence with an infinite diameter and pulls it together until it fits around the flock. The mathematician thinks for a while, then builds a fence around himself and defines himself as being outside.

Meaning the mathematician used some Discrete Math thinking - negating the variable.

-'The mathematician thinks for a while, then builds a fence around himself and defines himself as being outside'.

 

In this case the Engineer did well compared to your Physicist.

Engineer was in real space while the Physicist was in complex space - complex number real and imaginary parts.
