Daily Joke: Concerned Man Asked an Ecologist a Question at a Conference

During an environmental conference, an ecologist was addressing the crowd and said, "If we continue on this path, every animal, man, woman, and child on Earth will be gone in 50 years!"

A man in the audience then loudly exclaimed, "Wait! What did you say?"

The ecologist replied, "I said, if we continue on this path, every animal, man, woman, and child on Earth will be gone in 50 years." 

The man then let out a big sigh of relief and said, "Oh, thank goodness. I thought you said fifteen years."

A COMPLEX MATH QUESTION

Several scientists were in a conference together and were faced with the same question, "What is 2 times two?" The scientists all racked their brains and shared their answers.

An old engineer whipped out his ruler, shuffled back and forth, and announced, "3.99!"

However, a physicist turned to his technical references and set up the problem on his computer. He then turned to the room and announced, "The answer lies somewhere between 3.97 and 4.03."

Meanwhile, a mathematician pondered the question for a while and stated, "I don't know the answer, but what I can tell you is that an answer exists!"

A philosopher who was sat at the back of the conference said, "Okay, but what do you mean by 2 times 2?"

A logician piped up and said, "Can you define 2 times 2 more clearly?"

The sociologist then responded, "I don't know the answer, but we have been chatting very nicely."

A behavioral ecologist then said, "Hmmm, sounds like a polygamous mating system."

Suddenly a medical student said, "4!"

All of the scientists turned to stare at the student and said, "How did you know that?!"

The medical student said, "I memorized it!"

Wow! That medical student totally outsmarted those scientists! If you need a few more chuckles, check out his joke about a scientist, mathematician, and engineer who were all sentenced to death!
