An artist, a lawyer, and a computer scientist are discussing the merits of a mistress.
The artist tells of the passion, the thrill which comes with the risk of being discovered.
The lawyer warns of the difficulties. It can lead to guilt, divorce, bankruptcy. Not worth it. Too many problems.
The computer scientist says, "It's the best thing that's ever happened to me. My wife thinks I'm with my mistress. My mistress thinks I'm home with my wife, and I can spend all night on the computer!"
A scientist was working on an equation that would make ION propulsion viable but after several months he couldn’t make his theory work.
His neighbor a pastor at the local church took one look at the algorithm and solved in minutes.
The Scientist was astonished thinking it must be a miracle. The pastor said, “It was easy; after all they’re Parish-ION-ers.”
