Mathematician: 3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, therefore by

induction, all odd numbers are prime.

Alternate mathematician's proof: 3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime,

9 is not prime, neither is 15, therefore not all not odd numbers are

not prime; applying the contrapositive, the original lemma holds.

Physicist: 3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, 9--experimental error,

11 is prime, 13 is prime...therefore all odd numbers are prime.

Engineer: 3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, 9 is prime, 11 is prime...

Philosopher: 3 is prime, therefore all odd numbers are prime.

Lawyer: 3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, 11 is prime...

Programmer: Damn, can't find my sieve routine.

Politician: 3 is prime, uh, what comes next?
