Another Reason Why All the Great Scientists (Except Marie Curie) Are Men17 Apr 2009 / Hostile Witness
Two women are talking in the lunch room. One is wearing a black pullover sweater.
The other woman says, “I like your sweater.”
“Thanks. It’s long, so it covers my ass.”
“That’s what I like about it. Not that it covers your ass, but that it would cover my ass.”
I’m speechless . . .
The sweater isn’t covering her ass, her pants are covering her ass, and the sweater is covering the pants!
It’s a total misread of the geometry of the situation!
