Physics ice breakers

    physics ice breakers!!

    Giving a presentation at the end of next week as part of my final year in undergrad physics.
    Can any1 suggest any good physics jokes to break the ice?! (except the one about spherical chickens in a vacuum!)

    (I actually have a joke that I would like to tell - that as far I know, I made up myself - but if it turns out that some1 else got there before me, I probably won't use it!)

    What do neutrinos and I have in common?

    I like it!! - don't think I'd have the nerve to tell that in front of my lecturers though!
    (by the way, the joke I want to tell isn't so much a "knock knock" or a one-liner - I consider it to be a little more sophisticated than that... If anyone's interested I might post it up on this thread after I've told it next week!)

    That censorship just makes me more intrigued

    I'd go with a classic sherlock joke
    What do you call the electric detective?
    Sherlock Ohms!

    I googled it. All I can say is if you are going to be inappropriate, at least be funny.

    Re: physics ice breakers!!

    So are you anti-neutrino or something?

    Not anti-neutrino, just pro-ton.

    Two atoms are sitting together at a bar, one of them says to the other "So I think I lost an electron the other day", the other replies "Really, are you sure?" and the first responds "Yes, I'm positive."

    SO CORNY but I actually think it's funny because of how bad it is. :biggrin:

    Neutrino walks into a bar, bartender says "Hey, we don't serve your kind here." Neutrino says "It's alright, I'm just passing through".

    Not a joke but a nice rhyme that is in my GR textbook:

    "The earth is just a silly ball
    to them through which they simply pass
    like dust-maids down a drafty hall
    or photons through a sheet of glass."

    You could show them this:

    Or give them the physics take on Star Wars: May the Mass times Acceleration Be With You.

    Also, that neutrino joke was quite funny. Unless, of course, you're a Quaker.
