An engineer, a statistician, and a physicist are out hunting. They spot a buck, and each take turns to try and bag it. The physicist goes first. He pulls out his lab book and quickly calculates the trajectory of the bullet, assuming it is a perfect sphere in a vacuum.

The bullet falls *20m* short of the deer.

The engineer goes second. He pulls out his engineer's pad and book of projectile assumptions. After a few minutes he’s ready, he takes aim, and fires.

The bullet lands 20m passed the deer. The statistician leaps in the air shouting, “We got it!”

The error is always in the middle.

Thanks to all the engineers and IEEE and to my father who was one.

My profound apologies to the list for that. I have no idea how this list was added to the distribution of that reply to an (HMTL) mail from IEEE Power and Energy Society.
