Diagnosing Car Trouble
Three men, a physicist, a engineer and a computer scientist, are travelling in a car. Suddenly, the car starts to smoke and stops. The three atonished men try to solve the problem:
The physicist says: This is obviously a classic problem of torque. It has overloaded the elasticity limit of the main axis.
The engineer says: Let’s be serious! The matter is that it has burned the spark of the connecting rod to the dynamo of the radiator. I can easily repair it by hammering.
The computer scientist says: What if we get off the car, wait a minute, and then get in and try again?
