    An engineer, a physicist, and a lawyer were being interviewed for a position
    as chief executive officer of a large corporation.
    The engineer was interviewed first, and was asked a long list of questions,
    ending with "How much is two plus two?" The engineer excused himself, and made a
    series of measurements and calculations before returning to the board room and
    announcing, "Four."
    The physicist was next interviewed, and was asked the same questions. Before
    answering the last question, he excused himself, made for the library, and did a
    great deal of research. After a consultation with the United States Bureau of
    Standards and many calculations, he also announced "Four."
    The lawyer was interviewed last, and was asked the same questions. At the end
    of his interview, before answering the last question, he drew all the shades in
    the room, looked outside the door to see if anyone was there, checked the
    telephone for listening devices, and asked "How much do you want it to be?"
