mathematician visiting a small town for a conference. They found themselves

forced to share a room in one of the most dirty, dingy, and really low

quality hotels that they had ever seen. The room that the had was on the

third floor, and the nearest working bathroom was on the fourth.

Late that night, the engineer awoke, and decided to avail himself of the

lavatory facilities. Going up the stairs, he smelled smoke, and indeed, at

the end of the hall he saw a fire. Finding a hose on the wall, he turned it

on, ran down the hall, and extinguished the fire. He then visited the

bathroom, and returned to bed.

An hour later, the physicist awoke, and felt the call of nature. As he

went upstairs, he smelled smoke, and found that there was a fire. Finding

the hose, he whipped out his calculator, figured out the amount of water

needed to extinguish a fire of that size, calculated the flow rate of the

hose, turned it on for exactly 15.24 minutes, and extinguished the fire. He

then used the bathroom, and returned to bed.

Later still, the mathematician awoke and decided that he needed to use the

bathroom. Going upstairs, he too found the olbligatory smoke and fire.

Looking around in a panic, he found the fire hose. He then said, "Aha! A

solution exists!" And after using the bathroom, he returned to bed.

The chemist woke up, saw the fire, ran over to his desk, pulled out his CRC (chemistry handbook), and began working out all sorts of fluid dynamics equations....
