An infinite crowd of mathematicians walks into a bar. The first orders a pint. The second orders half a pint. The third orders one quarter point. "Got it", says the bartender, and pours two pints of beer.

It's a joke about a mathematical equation. Because the infinite number of mathematicians are successively ordering half of the previous guys order, their total order approaches a fixed number without ever reaching it. The barman preempts them and pours 2 pints...You can find me at: Energise Web Design

But, yes this is very esoteric humour.
Better than the god bothering though Josko.

(1 x 8 ) + 1 = 9
(12 x 8 ) + 2 = 98
(123 x 8 ) + 3 = 987
(1234 x 8 ) + 4 = 9876
(12345 x 8 ) + 5 = 98765
(123456 x 8 ) + 6 = 987654
(1234567 x 8 ) + 7 = 9876543
(12345678 x 8 ) + 8 = 98765432
(123456789 x 8 ) + 9 = 987654321
(1 x 9) + 2 = 11
(12 x 9) + 3 = 111
(123 x 9) + 4 = 1111
(1234 x 9) + 5 = 11111
(12345 x 9) + 6 = 111111
(123456 x 9) + 7 = 1111111
(1234567 x 9) + 8 = 11111111
(12345678 x 9) + 9 = 111111111
(123456789 x 9) +10= 1111111111
(9 x 9) + 7 = 88
(98 x 9) + 6 = 888
(987 x 9) + 5 = 8888
(9876 x 9) + 4 = 88888
(98765 x 9) + 3 = 888888
(987654 x 9) + 2 = 8888888
(9876543 x 9) + 1 = 88888888
(98765432 x 9) + 0 = 888888888
Brilliant, isn’t it?
(1 x 1) = 1
(11 x 11) = 121
(111 x 111) = 12321
(1111 x 1111) = 1234321
(11111 x 11111) = 123454321
(111111 x 111111) = 12345654321
(1111111 x 1111111) = 1234567654321
(11111111 x 11111111) = 123456787654321
(111111111 x 111111111) = 12345678987654321
Now, let’s take a look at this…
101%!
From a strictly mathematical viewpoint, What Equals 100%?
And, what could it mean to give MORE than 100%?
Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?
We have all been in situations where someone wants you to GIVE OVER 100%!
How about ACHIEVING 101%? And, what equals 100% in life?
WELL...
If:
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
Is represented as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26
Then:
KNOWLEDGE
(11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5) = 96%
Plus:
HARDWORK
(8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11) = 98%
Now:
ATTITUDE
(1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5) = 100%
But, look how far the love of
God will take you:
LOVEOFGOD
(12+15+22+5+15+6+7+15+4) = 101%

Which makes it all a bit meaningless. No? ;)
