    An engineer, a chemist and a mathematician are staying in three adjoining
    cabins at an old motel. First the engineer's coffee maker catches fire. He
    smells the smoke, wakes up, unplugs the coffee maker, throws it out the window,
    and goes back to sleep.
    Later that night the chemist smells smoke too. He wakes up and sees that a
    cigarette butt has set the trash can on fire. He says to himself, "Hmm. How does
    one put out a fire? One can reduce the temperature of the fuel below the flash
    point; isolate the burning material from oxygen, or both. This could be
    accomplished by applying water." So he picks up the trash can, puts it in the
    shower stall, turns on the water, and, when the fire is out, goes back to sleep.

    The mathematician, of course, has been watching all this out the window. So
    later, when he finds that his pipe ashes have set the bed sheet on fire, he is
    not in the least taken aback. He says: "Aha! A solution exists!" and goes back
    to sleep.
