Calculating Height



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."

    1. Word has it, The South shall rise again. I'm a southern Northerner myself, so I don't believe in such things. ;-)

      Wait. There are stupid jokes about Belgians?! I wonder if I should "Lol" or say, "Shame, shame!" ;-)

    4. Hmm, Dutch joke about our southern neighbors:
      Q: Why wasn’t Jesus born in Belgium?” “
      A: God couldn’t find three wise men in Belgium”.

      Belgian joke about the Northern Netherlands:
      Q: When a Dutchman dies why does his wife bury him with his feet in the air?
      A: So she has somewhere to park her bike.

      Educational?

    5. Han - The first joke is well known in the USA, and is used about individual states, ethnicity or ancestry of origin. The second joke would have gone right over my head until very recently. I had no idea bicycles were so widely used, and parking spaces so very difficult to find there. I was amazed at video footage of what seems to be a dizzying flow of bicycle traffic. It reminded me of an ant farm operating at high speed. The number of bikes the showed in parking areas and elaborately tiered garages (?) is staggering. Do people use electronic locators to find their bikes?

      Cat! Lol! War of Northern Aggression. Y'all show such dogged persistence. ;-)
