Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, and Blaise Pascal are playing Hide ‘n’ Seek. It’s Einstein’s turn to count, so he covers his eyes and counts to ten. Pascal runs to hide, but Newton draws a one meter by one meter square on the ground, then stands in the middle of it.

Einstein reaches ten and uncovers his eyes. He sees Newton immediately and exclaims “I found you, Newton! You’re it!”

Newton replies “You didn’t find me. You found a Newton over a square meter – that’s a Pascal!”

WC will be here all week, ladies and gentlemen.

(The birding presentation went well. WC will get some rest and start real blog posts soon.)

  1. I’ve been wondering how your presentation went. When I’ve done them they were a tremendous amount of work to prepare for and the presentations themselves were emotionally draining, though very gratifying. I’ll bet you and Nancy did a wonderful job.

  2. More geek humor: Rene Descartes walk into a bar. The bartender says, “Hey, Rene, can I pour you a drink?” Descartes replies, “I think not”. And disappears.
