    Half of a large intestine = 1 semicolon

    1000 aches = 1 kilohurtz

    453.6 graham crackers = 1 pound cake

    1 million microphones = 1 phone

    1 trillion microphones = 1 megaphone

    10 cards = 1 decacards

    1 millionth of a fish = 1 microfiche

    10 rations = 1 decoration

    2 monograms = 1 diagram

    One evening Rene Descartes went to relax at a local tavern. The tender approached and said, "Ah, good evening Monsieur Descartes! Shall I serve you the usual drink?". Descartes replied, "I think not.", and promptly vanished.

  • Krashcart, you know the saying "I think, therefore I am"..??

    Well, he thought NOT, therefore he WAS NOT. :lol: I thought that one was hysterical!!!!!!! :lol:

    Uh oh...... does that mean what I think it does!!?? :blink:
  • What do you call a sheep with no legs?
    A cloud.

    What do you call a dog with no legs?
    Doesn't matter... he won't come to you anyway!

    What is green and smells?
    Hulk's fart.

    Yo mama's so fat, when she fell in love she broke it.

    What does a blonde say after her doctor tells her that she's pregnant.
    Is it mine?
  • :lol: Susan, yes it does.
    Seems as if you been spending a little too much time reading my PM:s.
    The Einstein-Phythagoras joke is my personal favourite so you still have a way to go.

    FlamChop: Though they are funny they are not very nerdy, you know what I'm saying. ;)
  • You know I actually understood almost all of them. The only one I didn't get was the one about the Klein Bottle. What's that when it's at home? The rest were pretty hilarious and I'll have to show them to a few of my Geeky pals. Man they wont even understand why they're jokes since they'll probably assume that everyone think's that way. Guess that means I still have a way to go before I join the ranks of 'true' Geeks. As do the rest of you. Oh and if you understand less than 20% of those jokes you aren't a geek. 20% to 50% and you're a very low level Geek (a.k.a. a Nerd), 51% to 80% a low level Geek and 81% to 100% you're a medium level Geek. But if you don't understand any of the jokes for the aforementioned reasons then you are a true geek. And since I only didn't understand one of them I suppose I qualify as a medium level Geek. :D
  • The Klein bottle is an unorientable surface that can't be physically realized in 3D space. It can be done in 4 dimensions however.
  • Klein bottles?

    Fourth Dimentions (isn't that supposed to be time)

    And does someone know that susan is trying to tell me?


  • Crashkart,
    You've never heard the saying "I think, therefore I am." as in "Since I have thought processes and am
    consciously aware of these proceses, I must exist, for if I did not exist I would not be conscious of
    these thoughts, in fact I would not even have these thoughts to be conscious of, there wouldn't even
    be a me to have these thoughts, please, I'm getting tired & I just want to go home, can you please just
    accept 'I think, therefore I am', so we can be done with it. Thank you"

    So you see, those Five words can mean quite alot.
  • The Einstein-Pythagoras joke was good, but I thought the mathematician and his fence was funnier. It's an opinion thing, though. :P
  • All the jokes that I just read were good, I can't say that I have a favorite though!
  • [b]Ok, if this one is your favourite then truely you are a nerd :lol:

    A doctor, a lawyer and a mathematician were discussing the relative merits of having a wife or a mistress.

    The lawyer says: "For sure a mistress is better. If you have a wife and want a divorce, it causes all sorts of legal problems.

    The doctor says: "It's better to have a wife because the sense of security lowers your stress and is good for your health.

    The mathematician says: " You're both wrong. It's best to have both so that when the wife thinks you're with the mistress and the mistress thinks you're with your wife --- you can do some mathematics.

    You want some more?
    (Prehaps something that is funny)

    Prove that the crocodile is longer than it is wide.

    Lemma 1. The crocodile is longer than it is green: Let's look at the crocodile. It is long on the top and on the bottom, but it is green only on the top. Therefore, the crocodile is longer than it is green.

    Lemma 2. The crocodile is greener than it is wide: Let's look at the crocodile. It is green along its length and width, but it is wide only along its width. Therefore, the crocodile is greener than it is wide.

    From Lemma 1 and Lemma 2 we conclude that the crocodile is longer than it is wide..
