I originally intended to complete my post related to Game Theory + Swarm Intelligence. However, I see that I am not really in the mood for Maths just now.

I’d rather put up a PHD comics strip that cracks me up whenever I come across it. I happened to come across it in the morning and I decided to put it up. ;)

A couple of years back when i was in the process of shock recovery. I used to have a 30 page-long collection of nerdy jokes. Sadly, I lost that book one Diwali .

Those jokes went on their way to ethernity, and from that long list, I can only recall one joke word to word:

*The phosphor CRT monitor is always greener on the other side.*

Via the geeky page of Professor Erich Friedman. Here is a hilarious list. The first i have already accidentally mentioned in a previous post.

- Q: Why did the mathematician name his dog “Cauchy”?

A: Because he left a residue at every pole. - Q: What’s sado-masochism?

A: The standard deviation of the mean. - Q: What do you get when you cross an elephant and a grape?

A: I dunno, but its magnitude is Elephant, grape, sin theta. - Q: What do you get when you cross a mountain climber with a grape?

A: You can’t. A mountain climber is a scaler. - Q: What do farmers study in trigonometry?

A: Swine and cow-swine. - Q: What’s the contour integral around Western Europe?

A: Zero, because all the Poles are in Eastern Europe. - Q: How many numerical analysts does it take to screw in a light bulb?

A: 0.9973 after the first three iterations. - Q: How many statisticians does it take to change a lightbulb?

A: Two plus or minus three. - Q: How many applied mathematicians does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

A: One, who gives it to two statisticians, thereby reducing it to an earlier riddle. - Q: How many topologists does it take to change a light bulb?

A: It really doesn’t matter, since they’d rather knot.

Here is a very nerdy joke. I don’t know the source for it. If you do kindly let me know.

This is one of the best jokes that i know of on a mathematical theorem.

Q. Why did the mathematician name his dog Cauchy?

A. Because it left a residue at every pole.

Ha Ha :D

For those not familiar with Cauchy’s Residue Theorem, have a look here.
