I had a good friend of mine who was a philosophy major, and a guy in his class who was a bit of a burnout (too much weed, acid or something) handed in a one page document for his project for the class, which was expected to be 5000 words or something like that.
On the single page, there was a single line that said “Because I am simply writing this one line, it proves that I understand the material.”
My friend said given the course (It was something like Existential Humanistic Psychology or something weird like that, I can’t remember) it was a brilliant response, and showed exactly that he understood.
The guy got an “F” and failed the course...
Ah! Thank you...
Roman numeral for 5 = V
I didn’t get 3, 4 and 12.
Good thing its Oct 31... ;-P
Now I know this one, did I include this on my list of “do not understand”s?
A software tester would pass the scenario based on the business requirement. Now a quality assurance professional would realize the business requirement was wrong and raise an issue.
(3 x 8) = 24
24 + 2 = 26
(2 x 10) = 20
20 + 5 = 25
Hate to break it to you, but your math is wrong.
I took a philosophy class in high school and we were given an essay test with about 10 questions. Tuff test. One brainy guy finished the test, then wrote one sentence or one word answers to each of the questions - for fun (!!). The only one I can remember was:
“How does Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason fit into his philosophical system?”
So Heisenberg was racing through town in his hot little BMW.
A cop pulls him over. “Sir,” he says, “do you have any idea how fast you were going?”
“No,” says Heisenberg, “but I know where I am”.
In my case, as a programmer (most of the time), I would ask what they meant and make them state it. Likely, the ones who write for me would never write that. However, the tester interpretation is always open for discussion.
A gynecologist had become fed up with malpractice insurance and HMO paperwork, and was burned out. Hoping to try another career where his skillful hands would be beneficial, he decided to become a mechanic.
He went to the local technical college, signed up for evening classes, attended diligently, and learned all he could. When the time of the practical exam approached, the gynecologist prepared carefully for weeks and completed the exam with tremendous skill.
When the results came back, he was surprised to find that he had
obtained a score of 150%. Fearing an error, he called the Instructor,
saying, I dont want to appear ungrateful for such an outstanding
result, but I wonder if there is an error in the grade?
The instructor said, During the exam, you took the engine apart
perfectly, which was worth 50% of the total mark. You put the engine
back together again perfectly, which is also worth 50% of the mark.
After a pause, the instructor added, I gave you an extra 50% because
you did it all through the muffler, which Ive never seen done in my
It’s a typo. Oct 31 = 3*8 +1
I typed a 2 by mistake the math is correct
The one about the programmer and loaves of bread was very good.
It was for me also. I worked with a programmer years ago who would have brought home the 12 loaves.
See and I thought entropy was an eye condition.
That reminded me of a joke ascribed to humorist Robert Benchley (famous during 20s-40s): There are two types of people in this world. Those who divide people into two types and those who don't.
I really enjoyed this thread and thankful to all who contributed but especially to those who explained the ones I did not get. As corny as some of them were, it was a laugh out loud experience.
Glad you liked it!! (Feel free to use it!!!)
13. I didnt at first either but I think it just means any person of the left who claims socialism or communism wasn’t “ done right.”
