    A Mathematician is given a psychological test.

    The first question asked:-"You see a burning house and a hose disconnected from a fire hydrant.What do you do?"

    After much deliberation, the Mathematician decides he would attach the hose to the hydrant.

    He is then asked:-

    "You see a non-burning house and a hose disconnected from a fire hydrant.What do you do?" to which the Mathematician immediately responds:-

    "I'll set the house on fire to reduce this to a problem I've already solved."
