How Many Scientists Does It Take To Screw In A Lightbulb
« Reply #274 on: April 01, 2008, 04:02:06 PM »
How Many Scientists Does It Take To Screw In A Lightbulb

Q: How many scientists does it take to change a light bulb?
A: None. They use them as controls in double blind trials.

Q: How many academics does it take to change a lightbulb ?
A: None. That is what their students are for. (from Philip Clarke in New

A: Five: One to write the grant proposal, one to do the mathematical
modelling, one to type the research paper, one to submit the paper for
publishing, and one to hire a student to do the work.

Q: How many laboratory heads (senior researchers, etc.) does it take to
change a lightbulb?
A: Five; one to change the lightbulb, the other four to stand around
arguing whether he/she is taking the right approach.

Q: How many research technicians does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: One, but it'll probably take him/her three or four tries to get it right.

Q: How many post-doctoral fellows does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: One, but it'll probably take three or four tries to get it right because
he/she will probably give it to the technician to do.

Q: How many graduate students does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A: Only one, but it may take upwards of five years for him to get it done.
A: It all depends on the size of the grant.
A: Two and a professor to take credit.
A: 1/100. A graduate student needs to change 100 lightbulbs a day.
A: I don't know, but make my stipend tax-free, give my advisor a
0,000 grant of the taxpayer's money, and I'm sure he can tell me
how to do the work for him so he can take the credit for answering this
incredibly vital question.

Academic Life-A Daughter's Letter
« Reply #275 on: April 01, 2008, 04:02:46 PM »
Academic Life-A Daughter's Letter

Dear Mother and Dad,

It has now been three months since I left for college. I have been remiss
in writing and I am very sorry for the thoughtlessness in not having
written before. I will bring you up-to-date now, but before you read on,
please sit down. You are not going to read any further unless you are
sitting down. Okay?

Well, I am getting along pretty well now. The skull fracture and the
concussion I got when I jumped out of the window of my dormitory when it
caught fire shortly after my arrival are pretty well healed now. I only
spent two weeks in the hospital, and now I can see almost normally and only
get those sick headaches one a day.

Fortunately, the fire in the dormitory and my jump were witnessed by an
attendant at the gas station near the dorm, and he was the one who called
the Fire Department and the ambulance.

He also visited me in the hospital and since I had nowhere to live because
of the burnt out dormitory, he was kind enough to invite me to share his
apartment with him. Its really a basement room, but its kind of cute. He is
a very fine boy and we have fallen deeply in love and are planning to get
married. We haven't set the exact date yet, but it will be before my
pregnancy begins to show.

Yes, Mother and Dad, I am pregnant. I know how much you are looking forward
to being grandparents and I know you will welcome the baby and give it the
same love and devotion and tender care you gave me when I was a child.

The reason for the delay in our marriage is that my boyfriend has some
minor infection which prevents us from passing the pre-marital blood test
and I carelessly caught it from him. This will clear up with the penicillin
injections I am now taking daily. I know you will welcome him into the
family with open arms. He is kind and although not well educated, he is
ambitious. Although he is of a different race and religion than ours, I
know your often expressed tolerance will not permit you to be bothered by
the fact that his skin color is somewhat different than ours. I am sure
that you will love him as I do. His family background is good too, for I am
told that his father is an important engineer for the sanitation department
he works for. Although they say he runs his office from his truck.

Now that I have brought you up-to-date, folks, I want to tell you that
there was NO dormitory fire, I did not have a concussion or a skull
fracture, I was not in the hospital, I am not pregnant, I am not engaged, I
do not have syphilis, and there is no schwartze in my life. However, I am
getting a "D" in history and an "F" in science, and I wanted you to see
those marks in the proper perspective.

Your loving daughter, ...

Fear and Ignorance-Combined Science
« Reply #277 on: April 01, 2008, 04:15:51 PM »
For years now, the science of "anatomy" has been based on nothing but luck
and speculation, shrinking away from addressing the true problem of
uncovering the most basic constituents of the human body in fear of
offending certain puritanical "moral" superstitions.

I propose that, following in the footsteps of particle physics, we construct a tube 5 km
long and about one meter in diameter into each end of which human subjects
can be inserted and accelerated towards each other at upwards of 3*10^4

Upon collision the net energy should be sufficient to break apart the
subjects into their component parts which will then be captured by a
sophisticated bucket-and-tubing mechanism and classified by the planet's
best anatomists.

Only by such means can we ever hope to put the science of
anatomy on a firm footing and shed light on that which has heretofore been
veiled by the darkness of ignorance and fear.

The Marriage-Combined Sciences
« Reply #278 on: April 01, 2008, 04:19:24 PM »
There is a general feeling in the public that IISc/IIT students are fundundamentally,
unassumingly lost in thought almost all the time. And girls fare no better
in this respect. So let us see what a Non IISc/IITain may face when he
marries a girl from this campus.

SCENE: First night of the marriage.

CHARACTERS: IISc/IIT Bride and Non IISc/IIT Groom.

The Groom approaches the Bride and proposes to kiss her. So let us see what
would be her reaction..


"Well kissing is relative. You can kiss me with respect to me or with
respect to you. First define how you are going to kiss. You can kiss me by
treating me in the same reference frame as you are or treating me in a
different inertial frame by producing waves of motion through your lips.
How do you prefer?

The guy faints.


"Kissing is fine. You can kiss me provided you satisfy the following

Necessary conditions: You should be close to me by a distance delta where
delta is greater than zero and the limit for delta tends to zero and you
satisfy the closure property.

Sufficient conditions: You should have lips. Where the number of lips is
neither more than two nor less than two. You can also kiss by defining your
hand to be me if and only if you satisfy the above conditions.

The guy goes mad.


"Oh Kissing, that is interesting phenomena that occurs in nature. This is
an initiating process for sex not only found in homosapiens but also in all
heterosapiens, mammals, camels, vertebrates, invertebrates and insects. Out
of 1000 ants observed in a closed laboratory in Zuvinich in Yugoslavia 90%
of them seem to involve in the process of kissing but the subsequence is
very random with probability 0.672139 that a male ant kiss female
ant. First observe the behaviour of ants and cockroaches under various
conditions. That will be very interesting . Isn't it?

The guy has heart attack.

GIRL FROM CS (Computer Science):

"You want to kiss me. That is fine I assume that you know the algorithm for
that very well. But you have to complete the process within 56.22 seconds
or else connection will be timed out. To optimise the timing lets do
parallel processing. As we have to discuss about our future and other
things, let us do the process of discussion foreground and why can't you
put the process of Kissing background?"

The guy applies for divorce.

GIRL from EE (Electrical Engineering):

"So you would like to kiss me. The process of kissing is an age old
communication process. The information content of the signal transmitted
from one pair of lips to the other is more if the probability of the event
(of kissing) is less. Hence take care. If you want a successful
communication between us, you should kiss me less often. If the information
content is to be infinite, you should never kiss me at all!"

For all of us who are married, were married, wish
You were married, or wish you weren't married, this
Is something to smile about the next time you see a
Bottle of wine:

Sally was driving home from one of her business
Trips in Northern Arizona when she saw an elderly
Navajo woman walking on the side of the road .

As the trip was a long and quiet one, she stopped
The car and asked the Navajo woman if she would like
A ride.

With a silent nod of thanks, the woman got into
The car.

Resuming the journey, Sally tried in vain to make
A bit of small talk with the Navajo woman. The old
Woman just sat silently, looking intently at
EVERYTHING she saw, studying every little detail,
Until she noticed a brown bag on the seat next to
Sally .

"What in bag?" asked the old woman.

Sally looked down at the brown bag and said, "It's
A bottle of wine. I got it for my husband."

The Navajo woman was silent for another moment or

Then speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder,
She said:


"Good trade..

Don't Laugh
« Reply #281 on: April 03, 2008, 09:41:16 PM »
Don't laugh
The first thing Fred says as he sees the doctor is
"Please don't laugh".

Of course I won't laugh," the doctor said. "I'm a
professional. In over twenty years I've never laughed at a patient."

"Okay then," Fred said, and proceeded to drop his
trousers, revealing the tiniest penis the doctor had ever seen. It couldn¢t have been the size of a peanut.

Unable to control himself, the doctor started
giggling, then fell laughing to the floor.

Ten minutes later he was able to struggle to his feet
and regain his composure.

"I'm so sorry, "Said the doctor, "I really am..
I don't know what came over me. On my honor as a doctor and a gentleman, I promise it won¢t happen again. Now what seems to be the problem?"

"It's swollen," Fred replied.

A vacationing penguin is driving through Arizona when he notices
that the oil-pressure light is on.  He gets out to look and sees oil
dripping out of the motor.  He drives to the nearest town and stops
at the first gas station.

After dropping the car off, the penguin goes for a walk around
town.  He sees an ice-cream shop and, being a penguin in Arizona,
decides that something cold would really hit the spot.  He gets a
big dish of vanilla ice cream and sits down to eat.  Having no hands,
he makes a real mess trying to eat with his little flippers. 

After finishing his ice cream, he goes back to the gas station and asks
the mechanic if he's found the problem.  The mechanic looks up and
says, "It looks like you blew a seal."

"No, no," the penguin replies, "it's just ice cream."
