The biologist tries to explain the phenomenon by stating, “Well, they must have reproduced.” The physicist offers a different explanation; “There must have been an error in measurement.” Then, the mathematician says, “If one more person walks in, then the house will be empty again.” (The statistician isn’t bothered; his expectation was approximately correct.)
Einstein Newton and Pascal are playing hid and go seek and it’s Einstein’s turn to count.

The programmer said “Why don’t we get going again and see if it’s reproducible?”
