Big Data Humor: The Rigorousness of Mathematics

Captured by webthumbnail.orgBig Data Humor: the Rigorousness of Mathematics – insideBIGDATA

Daniel Gutierrez, Managing Editor of insideBigData tells a joke expressing the rigorousness and precision of mathematics:

An astronomer, a physicist, and a mathematician (it is said) were holidaying in Scotland. Glancing from a train window, they observed a black sheep in the middle of a field. “How interesting,” observed the astronomer, “all Scottish sheep are black?” To which the physicist responded, “No, no! Some Scottish sheep are black!” The mathematician gazed heavenward in supplication, and then intoned, “In Scotland there exists at least one field, containing at least one sheep, at least one side of which is black.”
