An engineer, a physicist, and a lawyer were being interviewed for a position as chief executive officer of a large corporation.

The engineer was interviewed first, and was asked a long list of questions, ending with "How much is two plus two?"

The engineer excused himself, and made a series of measurements and calculations before returning to the board room and announcing, "Four."

The physicist was next interviewed, and was asked the same questions. Before answering the last question, he excused himself, made for the library, and did a great deal of research.

After a consultation with the United States Bureau of Standards and many calculations, he also announced "Four."

The lawyer was interviewed last, and was asked the same questions. At the end of his interview, before answering the last question, he drew all the shades in the room, looked outside the door to see if anyone was there, checked the telephone for listening devices, and asked "How much do you want it to be?"

If you ask an eight year old the question he/she will tell you "Four".

If you ask an economist with a Phd the question you will understand why we are in the presentsituation.

1 + 1 = 10. It's a binary kind of thing.

11 does equal 3 but 1+1 is 10.

11 does equal 3 but 1+1 is 10.


I'm so confused!!!



I see it now that I look again, I was looking at the answer in decimal instead of binary. My brain can't seem to stay on track.
