A group of northern engineers is trying to calculate the height of a flag pole.
They try to measure its height by lining up their thumbs and then turning the thumb 90 degrees and marking a spot on the ground.
Then they try to use its shadow and trig functions, but no luck.
An engineer from the south comes by and watches for a few minutes.
He asks one of the northern engineers what they're doing.
"We're trying to calculate the height of this flagpole." the engineer said.
The southern engineer watches a few minutes more and then, without saying a word, he walks over, pulls the pole out of the ground, lays it down, measures it, writes the measurement on a piece of paper, and gives it to one of the northern group.
The northern man looks at the paper, snickers and says to the others: "Isn't that just like a southerner? We're trying to calculate the height and he gives us the length."
