A physicist, an engineer and a mathematician were all in a hotel
sleeping when a fire broke out in their respective rooms.
The physicist woke up, saw the fire, ran over to his desk, pulled out
his CRC, and began working out all sorts of fluid dynamics equations.
After a couple minutes, he threw down his pencil, got a graduated
cylinder out of his suitcase, and measured out a precise amount of
water. He threw it on the fire, extinguishing it, with not a drop
wasted, and went back to sleep.
The engineer woke up, saw the fire, ran into the bathroom, turned on
the faucets full-blast, flooding out the entire apartment, which put
out the fire, and went back to sleep.
The mathematician woke up, saw the fire, ran over to his desk, began
working through theorems, lemmas, hypotheses , you-name-it, and after
a few minutes, put down his pencil triumphantly and exclaimed, "I have
proven that I can put the fire out!" He then went back to sleep.
