  1. Reminds me of a joke…

    Heisenberg get pulled over on the Massachusetts Turnpike by the State Police. The trooper walks up to the car and asks him, “Do you know how fast you were going?” Heisenberg replies, “No. But I know where I am!”

    OK, lame. Here’s my only other Physics joke:

    This neutron walks up to a bar and says, “Bartender! How much for a beer?” The barkeep replies, “You… no charge.”

    Thank you… thank you. I’m here ’till Thursday. Try the veal; don’t forget to tip your waitresses.
