    Re: Any good maths jokes?

    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."

    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."

    Why are amoebas the most intelligent animal in the world?

    Because they can multiply by dividing!

    I can do that too, I just divide by some number in between 0 and 1...

    Does that make me an amoeba? ><

    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).

    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.
