And now for the weekly joke ...
A mathematician is flying non-stop from Edmonton to Frankfurt with
AirTransat. The scheduled flying time is nine hours.
Some time after taking off, the pilot announces that one engine had to be
turned off due to mechanical failure: "Don't worry - we're safe. The only
noticeable effect this will have for us is that our total flying time will be
ten hours instead of nine."
A few hours into the flight, the pilot informs the passengers that another
engine had to be turned off due to mechanical failure: "But don't worry -
we're still safe. Only our flying time will go up to twelve hours."
Some time later, a third engine fails and has to be turned off. But the
pilot reassures the passengers: "Don't worry - even with one engine, we're
still perfectly safe. It just means that it will take sixteen hours total for
this plane to arrive in Frankfurt."
The mathematician remarks to his fellow passengers: "If the last engine
breaks down, too, then we'll be in the air for twenty-four hours altogether!"
If you have a joke you would like to be used in this situation - please email it to me privately please.
