Seeing Theory is a beautifully designed website, which aims to educate people about probability theory via series of visual and interactive lessons. If anyone is struggling to grasp some of the basic concepts in this field of mathematics or is just getting into it, the website can be a very useful learning tool. Seeing Theory was designed by Daniel Kunin as an undergraduate project in Brown University and has won numerous awards. To visit the website, click the banner below.
Who says science jokes are not funny? Below you can see some of the best Physics jokes we know, along with short explanations
Do you know any funny Physics jokes yourself? Let us know in the comment section below.
“Where does bad light end up?”
A word-play with the word “prison”.
“Why does a burger have less energy than a steak?
The ground state of a mechanical system has the least possible energy.
Einstein developed a theory about space. And it was about time too.
The joke is a wordplay with the fact that Einstein developed a theory about space-time relativity.
“Theory is when you know everything, but nothing works. Practice is when everything works, but no one knows why. In our lab theory and practice are combined – nothing works and no one knows why.”
“What is a physicist’s favorite food?”
“Fission chips” sounds like “
Two theoretical physicists are lost at the top of a mountain. Theoretical physicist No 1 pulls out a map and peruses it for a while. Then he turns to theoretical physicist No 2 and says:
“Hey, I’ve figured it out. I know where we are.”
“Where are we then?”
“Do you see that mountain over there?”
“Well… That’s where we are!”
Theoretical physicists are regarded to be very detached from reality.
I have a new theory on inertia, but it doesn’t seem to be gaining momentum.
Inertia and momentum are related to the motions of solid bodies.
“How did Einstein begin his stories?”
“Once upon a space-time…”
The space-time is a mathematical model of the universe introduced by Albert Einstein.
Yesterday I was reading a book on anti-gravity. Couldn’t put it down.
Anti-gravity is the concept of having a place or object which is free from the force of gravity.
A cop pulls Heisenberg and asks him:
“Do you know how fast you were driving?”
“No, but I know where I am.”
Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle in quantum mechanics states that you can not know with certainty both the position and the momentum of a particle.
My friend Power has been very stressed all week. His boss keeps making him work over time.
POWER = WORK / TIME
One day, Einstein, Newton and Pascal met up and decided to play a game of hide and seek. Einstein volunteered to be “It”. As Einstein counted to 100, eyes closed, Pascal ran away and hid. Newton however stood right in front of Einstein and drew a 1 meter by 1 meter square around himself. When Einstein opened his eyes, he immediately saw Newton and said, “I found you Newton,” but Newton replied, “Nope, you found one Newton per square meter, that’s Pascal!”
A word play with the formula:
1 PASCAL = 1 NEWTON / 1 SQUARE METER
A photon checks into a hotel. The bellhop asks, “Can I help you with your luggage?” The photon replies, “I don’t have any, I’m traveling light.”
Photons are traveling light particles.
A student riding in a train looks up and sees Einstein sitting next to him. Excited he asks, “Excuse me, Professor, does Boston stop at this train?”
Physical observations depend on the point of view of the observer.
Why is electricity so dangerous? Because it doesn’t know how to conduct itself properly.
Electricity is formed by conduction of electrons in a wire.
A male magnet says to a female magnet:
“From your backside, I thought you were repulsive. After seeing you from the front however, I find you rather attractive.”
Depending on the way you connect magnets, they could either repulse
Schrodinger’s cat walks into a bar. And doesn’t.
Schrodinger’s cat is a thought experiment related to the theory that a system can be in multiple states until interacts with the outside world. The classic setup is with a cat closed in a box with radioactive substance in it, which could potentially kill her. Before you open the box, the cat is supposedly both dead and alive.
The dean addresses the physics department:
“Why do I always have to give you so much money – for laboratories and expensive equipment and stuff? Why couldn’t you be like the mathematics department – all they need is money for pencils, paper, and waste-paper baskets. Or even better, like the philosophy department – all they need is pencils and paper.”
Scientists like physicists and mathematicians consider philosophers to produce mostly useless results and materials.
Joseph Herscher is a kinetic artist and a YouTube personality, who specializes in creating intricate Rude Goldberg machines out of everyday objects. Some of his most popular machines are “The Page Turner”, “The Dresser”, and “The Cake Server” which you can see below. Joseph has been sharing his inventions on YouTube for more than 10 years, and you can explore all of them on his official channel. Who knows, maybe he will inspire you to start making fascinating Rude Goldberg machines as well!
Even though developing your analytical and
Who says science jokes are not funny? Below you can see some of the best Programming jokes we know, along with short explanations to the more obscure of them.
Do you know any funny Programming jokes yourself? Let us know in the comments section below.
“What is the object-oriented way to become wealthy?”
Inheritance is one of the main mechanisms of object-oriented programming.
“Why did the programmer quit his job?”
“Because he did not get arrays.”
Array is a data structure in programming. This is a wordplay with “a raise”.
“Why do programmers always mix up Halloween and Christmas?”
“Because Oct 31 equals Dec 25.”
The number 31 in the Octal number system equals the number 25 in the Decimal number system.
“0 is False and 1 is True, correct?”
This answer does not give any information.
A man is smoking a cigarette and blowing smoke rings into the air. His girlfriend becomes irritated with the smoke and says, “Can’t you see the warning on the cigarette pack? Smoking is hazardous to your health!” To this, the man replies, “I am a programmer. We don’t worry about warnings; we only worry about errors.”
In programming, there are two types of problems with the code – warnings and errors. Warnings do not necessarily prevent the code from executing properly, so they are not that worrhsome.
Why computers are like men:
- In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on.
- They have a lot of data but are still clueless.
- They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they are the problem.
- As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have had a better model.
Why computers are like women:
- No one but the Creator understands their internal logic.
- The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else.
- Even your smallest mistakes are stored in long-term memory for later retrieval.
- As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.
“What do you call a programmer from Finland?”
This is a wordplay with the word nerdy and Nordic.
“Why do Java programmers need to wear glasses?”
“Because they do not C#.”
Java and C# are two different programming languages.
99 little bugs in the code.
99 bugs in the code.
Take one down, patch it around.
100 little bugs in the code.
This is a modification of the famous “99 bottles of beer”. In coding, it often happens that you fix one bug and then few others appear.
The programmer got stuck in the shower because the instructions on the shampoo said “Lather. Rinse. Repeat.”
The instructions created a loop without terminating conditions.
“I don’t see women as objects. I consider each of them in a class of her own.”
A joke related to object-oriented programming.
An SQL query walks into a bar, walks up to two tables and asks, “Can I join you?”
“SQL JOIN” is a clause which is used to combine two or more tables.
