There was an expert accountant who was well versed in game theory. He heard that his intelligent niece, who was five years old, always took a 50p piece, when a choice between a 50p piece and a pound coin was offered to her.

He went to see his niece and offered her just such a choice. She took the 50p and said

"Thank you Uncle".

The accountant tried to explain to his niece

"You must understand, a pound coin is twice as valuable as a 50p piece, so you should always choose the pound coin."

The niece replied

"Uncle, but then people will not offer me any money." - Aug 13th 2012, 06:41 AMemakarovRe: Any good maths jokes?
Three logicians walk into a bar. The bartender asks, "Do y'all want a drink?" The first logician says, "I am not sure." The second one also says, "I am not sure." The third one says, "Yes."

This reminds me a quote from the article "On the Essence of Mathematical Proofs" from the book "A Stress Analysis of a Strapless Evening Gown" (1963) (double translation to and from Russian).

Quote:

Relying on mathematical proofs, scientists managed to unite previously disconnected areas, thermodynamics and communication technology, into a new discipline: information theory. "Information," defined scientifically, is proportional to surprise: the more surprising the message, the more information it contains. If, having lifted a receiver, a man hears "Hello," this will not surprise him very much; there will be considerably more information if instead of "Hello" he gets an electric shock.
