Geeky science jokes

I know that a bunch of you will like these.  Here's a sample:
An infinite number of mathematicians walk into a bar.  The first orders a beer, the second orders half a beer, the third orders a quarter of a beer, and so on.  After the 7th order the bartender pours two beers and says, "You guys should know your limits".
Lots more here.

The bartender must have been a retired engineer.

I was just telling that joke within the week!

One of my favorites that I didn't see in your linked page:

A physicist, a biologist, and a mathematician are sitting on a bench across from a house. They watch as two people go into the house, and then a little later, three people walk out.

The physicist says, "The initial measurement was incorrect."

The biologist says, "They must have reproduced."

And the mathematician says, "If exactly one person enters that house, it will be empty."

I tell this joke when I'm explaining to people how assumptions matter in hypotheses.
