I hate to admit it, but I had to think about this for 30 seconds
before I got it. Good one!

I actually saw this somewhere (needless to say, I already know).

Actually, I think it was one of the users who had a signature like this....

Edit: The entire rainbow of badges...

Yeah yeah, there are all kinds of funny t-shirts I've seen like that:

#define QUESTION (bb || !bb)

What part of (some 'Hello World!' code is here) don't you understand?



And so on and so forth. But I haven't seen the one that's the
title of this thread. Good thinking.

I saw something like this before, it went: "There are three types of people in the world, those who can read and those who can't."

That's not exactly right, but close. It goes like this:

"There are three types of people in the world, those who can count and those who can't."

There are three types of people in the world: Those with a split personality and those without.*

I think that there are many ways to name it.

And of course there's the one about fractions:

Quote:
Seven out of five people don't understand fractions
Or something like that.

Going along with the "# types of people in the world" quotes . . .
Quote:
There are two types of people in this world, good and bad. The good
sleep better, but the bad seem to enjoy the waking hours much more.
-- Woody Allen
Eh, maybe that doesn't belong here . . . who knows . . .

Oh, here's a joke that's more mathematically-oriented:
Quote:
Two snakes were lolling on the grass in a nature reserve, and the warden came by. It was spring, and everything had babies, except these two. So he asks them why. One says, you see, we're adders, we can't multiply. So the warden nods sadly, and goes back to his cabin. He thinks about it and finally comes up with an idea. He goes back to where the snakes live, chops down two tall trees, and makes tables for the snakes. How does this help the snakes?
Arigato,

Would the warden be making a multiplication table for the two adders?

A complete guess, am I wrong?
