This one is for the nerds in the audiance

An Engineer a Physicist and a Mathmatician are asked to build a fence for a farmer. They're told to make it close as much area as possible, but to do it fast.

The Engineer spends 15 minutes making a square enclosure, the farmer is pleased and pays him.

The physicist spends a few hours making as close to a perfectly circular fence as he can. The Farmer dosn't like how long it took, but is reasonably satisfied and pays him.

The Mathmatician wanders off. Everyone stand around waiting for him, and 8 hours later he runs back with the entirety of the fencing wrapped around himself and shouts "Guys! I defined myself as being outside the fence."
