You know what I find odd?

Integers that leave a remainder of 1 when divided by 2.

In the final question of an oral final exam, a student was asked to find the limit (to infinity) of the
following sequence:

I know,
I know that you know,
I know that you know that I know,
I know that you know that I know that you know,

Dazzled, all the student could think of  was, “I don’t know”.

The professor, equally baffled, replied, “Seriously? Come on. It’s common knowledge!”

Heisenberg’s wife: “I can’t find my keys!”

Heisenberg: “You must know too much about their momentum.”

Student: ”Would you like the window opened or closed?”

Mathematician: ”Yes.”

pi mathematicians walk into a bar. The first one orders (e^1 – pi) beers, the second one orders (e^2 – pi) beers, and so on. When the last one comes up, the bartender decides to be generous and gives him twenty beers.

Did you know that the “B” in Benoit B. Mandelbrot stands for ‘Benoit B. Mandelbrot’?

  1. The pi mathematicians part is wrong.
    (e^1-pi)+(e^2-pi)+(e^3-pi) = 20.7680969…
    I think you’ve confused that with (e^pi)-pi = 19.9991…
