First off, my name is Edwin. I was going to start off with a joke, but it became rather long. I placed the joke at the end of this summary in case you're interested in some science humor.
If there's one thing that I believe I was put on this Earth for, it's humor. I enjoy making people laugh, especially the knee-slapping, snort-inducing, belly-aching kind.
I back my car into parking spaces as the opportunity and the lay-out of the lot allows. However, if by backing in the sunlight hits the front seats, I defer to pulling in hood first.
I've jumped out of a plane twice, without a parachute. However, the guy that I was attached to had one on. *wink*
A physicist, a biologist, and a chemist go to the beach. It was the first time for all three and rather than take in the cool ocean breeze, the sun’s rays on their rather pale skins, and the soothing sounds of the waves, their scientific minds are piqued by the sight of the ocean.
The biologist speaks up first and says to the other two, “I’m going down to the shoreline to see whether I can find any marine life.” Not waiting for a response, she darts off towards the water. While in her own little world, a huge wave comes in, knocks her off her feet, and takes her out to sea.
The other two look at each other, minds still wondering at what had transpired. After a while, the physicist looks at the chemist and says, “Well I’m going to take a closer look and study the wave dynamics.” The chemist warns him, “But you saw what happened to the biologist…” The physicist cuts the chemist off, “Don’t worry. I can definitely predict the pattern of the waves.”
Before the argument can continue any further, the physicist meanders towards the shoreline. Minutes into his observation, the physicist is quite confident in the pattern of the waves to the point that he walks along the incoming and outgoing tides. However, unbeknownst to him, a rather huge tide piggybacks on a smaller tide. When the huge tide hits, it knocks him off his feet, and he too is swept out to sea.
The chemist, reflecting on what he just saw remarks a rather unenthusiastic “hmmm…” He takes out his little note pad, a pen, and writes “The biologist and physicist are soluble in water.”
