There was a shipwreck at sea and Doug, Steve, and Phil got washed ashore on a small, isolated island. They were exhausted and fell asleep on the beach. Doug woke up and saw a box of bananas had washed ashore. He ate 1/3 of bananas and went back to sleep. Steve woke up and also ate 1/3 of what was left of the bananas, and went back to sleep. Next, Phil woke up and assuming no one had eaten the bananas, ate only 1/3 of what was left. When he was finished, there were only 8 bananas left. Can you guess how many bananas were in the box?

William Hallowes Miller

Died 20 May 1880 at age 79 (born 6 Apr 1801).Welsh minerologist known for his Millerian indices built on his system of reference axes for crystals by which the different systems of crystal forms can be designated using a a set of three integers for each crystal face. When he published this scheme in A Treatise on Crystallography (1839), he provided an alternative to the existing confusion due to the many different descriptive systems previously in use. In his early career he published successful textbooks for hydrostatics and hydrodynamics (1831) and differential calculus (1833). Miller also prepared new standards in 1843 to replace the National Standards of weight and length that had been lost in the 1834 fire that destroyed the Parliament buildings.«

Terrible news

This guy was sitting in his attorney's office. His lawyer says: "Do you want the bad news first or the terrible news?"

"Give me the bad news first," he says.

"Your wife found a picture worth a half-million dollars," his lawyer informs him.

"That's the bad news?" asks the man incredulously. "I can't wait to hear the terrible news."

"The terrible news is that it's of you and your secretary."
