The link for 168 science jokes shows 40 and at the bottom is a statement the 168 had been edited, but if you click on that statement it'll take you to the 168.

Pepsi One and Coke Zero both had a unique hint of cinnamon aftertaste that was really good. They didn't have to be stone cold to drink them. But Pepsi One got killed and Coke Zero got changed, so there's nothing cool on the market anymore. Reduced to drinking water like commoners. Oh the humanity!

How can they deny the existence of trickle down when the 1% are peeing on us every day?
I guess a shower is different than a trickle.

As a youngster I spent about 12 summers on the Delaware Bay and was very familiar with Horseshoe Crabs. They were harmless, but stinky when they washed up dead. Fascinatingly primitive creatures and it is sad to hear about their decline.

You know, I'm somewhat of a scientist myself:

If it moves, it's biology.
If it stinks, it's chemistry.
If it doesn't work, it's physics.

I only tell science jokes periodically,
so here goes:

Two chemists walk into a bar.
The first one says "I'll have H20".
The second one says "I'll have H20 too".
The second one dies.

Ehh. Science is pretty cool though. For
instance Science can tell you how to
clone a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Humanities,
on the other hand, can tell you why this
might be a bad idea.
