How are philosophers and physicists alike?

They each think they’re working with the source code of the universe while everyone else is just clicking on pretty icons.

How are philosophers and physicists different?

The philosophers are right.

    As a philosophy major, I find this funny.

    Works even better for arrogant physicists, cuz we’re actually right.

      Ah, but the question “who is right: philosophers or physicists?” is a philosophical question. We registered it at the Central Registry in 450 BCE, and only we are allowed to answer it. Get to the registry sooner next time! The early bird gets the spacetime worm.
