Selected physics jokes from the web:

What's the most terrifying word in nuclear physics?

Oops.


Einstein developed a theory about space.

And it was about time too.


Why can't you trust an atom?

They make up everything.


Schrodinger and Heisenberg were out driving together when they were pulled over by a policeman. The cop walks up to the window and asks, “Sir, do you know how fast you were going?”

Heisenberg replies, “No, but I know exactly where I was.”

The cop is unamused and orders the physicists to open their trunk. He looks in and sees a dead cat. “Do you know there is a dead cat in your trunk?” he asks.

Schrodinger replies, “Well, I do now!”


Two atoms were walking down the street. One turns to the other and says, “Oh, no! I think I lost an electron!”

The other responds, “Are you sure?!?”

“Yes, I’m positive!”


A neutron walks into a bar, and orders a drink. The bartender serves him, he drinks up and asks "How much do I owe you"?

The bartender says "For you, no charge!"

Someone (as of now unidentified) has been hanging up microanalysis/geochemistry-themed puny Christmas greetings in the department.

I found this one on the microprobe-lab door:

Against the dark, a tall white fountain played.

My new favorite XKCD comic:

I love the caption:

"A partial eclipse is like a cool sunset. A total eclipse is like someone broke the sky."
