Today I found out that the mathematical volume of a pizza is pizza. How does that work you say? Well if z = radius of the pizza and a = the height then Π * radius2 * height = Pi * z * z * a = Pizza. Mind officially blown.
On a different note, three statisticians go out hunting together. After a while, they spot a solitary rabbit. The first statistician takes aim and overshoots; the second aims and undershoots; the third shouts out “We got him!”
