It is great to see people sharing some joke to make others laugh. I would also like to share a joke.


Student 1: Dancing after looking at his maths question paper in exam.

Student 2: Why are you dancing?

Student 1: It is specified in question paper that marks will be given for every step.

mathematician is flying non-stop from Edmonton to Frankfurt with AirTransat. The scheduled flying time is nine hours.

Some time after taking off, the pilot announces that one engine had to be turned off due to mechanical failure: "Don't worry - we're safe. The only noticeable effect this will have for us is that our total flying time will be ten hours instead of nine."

A few hours into the flight, the pilot informs the passengers that another engine had to be turned off due to mechanical failure: "But don't worry - we're still safe. Only our flying time will go up to twelve hours."

Some time later, a third engine fails and has to be turned off. But the pilot reassures the passengers: "Don't worry - even with one engine, we're still perfectly safe. It just means that it will take sixteen hours total for this plane to arrive in Frankfurt."

The mathematician remarks to his fellow passengers: "If the last engine breaks down, too, then we'll be in the air for twenty-four hours altogether!"

Nice and cool jokes.


Some additions:



1. Q:What is smallest mathematical joke?

A: Let epsilon be less than 0


2. Once, a man lost his way. He asked one of passersby - Where am I.

Passerby said after 5 minutes - You are far away from your home.

The man concluded - You are mathematician.

Because i) You took a long time to answer my question

ii) The answer was technically correct

iii) The answer was useless to me.


3. Q: What is integration of 1/cabin?

A: natural log cabin + c (sea) = houseboat.


4. Once, a chemist, a physicist and a mathematician went to a conference.

They were forced to cross a river.

Mathematician said - I should solve the equation of crossing the river.

He jumped into river.

Physicist said - I should get motion related constants to cross the river.

He too jumped.

Chemist concluded - Both are soluble in water.


5. Q: How pi (3.14...) teases i (square root of -1)?

A: Pi says - get real.

i says - Be rational.
