«  Two times Two 
» 
What does two times two equal? The answer depends on who you are:
 the mathematician
 Four. Exactly.
 the accountant
 am I reporting to the board, to the bank or the Revenue? It would vary between £8 and a loss of £4.
 the economist
 What would you like it to equal?
 the engineer
 Two times two? Well of course it's seven, but call it twelve so there's a margin of safety.
 the electronic engineer
 two times two is either 3.9 or 4.7. If you want more accurate, you may get 4.3. But you will need to pay more.
 the retired engineer
 gets his sliderule out, calculates the answer as 3.99, and approximates it to 4.
 the assembler programmer
 100
 the arts graduate
 I don't know sir ... would you like fried with that?
