True story. I had a Korean professor once for Quantum Mechanics. He had a very bad accent which made some of the class extra fun. (QM is always fun! (Nerd) )

So we were talking about fermions and ground level energies. He used the students in the front row as electrons and used seats as an example of energy states.

He referred to the students as "sh!tting in their sheets."

An experimental physicist meets a mathematician in a bar and they start talking. The physicict asks, "What kind of math do you do?" to which the mathematician replies, "Knot theory." The physicist says, "Me neither!"

Pascal walks into a bar and sees 100 000 Pascals already inside.

A man was arrested and taken to an interrogation room. He says to the police officer, "I'm not saying a word without my lawyer present." "You are the lawyer," says the policeman. "Exactly, so where's my present?"

I sold my vacuum cleaner because it was simply collecting dust.

A plateau is the highest form of flattery.

"Do you know why alot of people have triangle or square toits?"
"What's a toit?"
"I don't know but everyone keeps saying I haven't got around to it."

"Who's there?"
"Spell who?"

What is mkv btw? Any video with mkv extension can't be played on Windows Media Player, not even included in playlist when I include them all.
The mkv format is a free, open-standard container format, a file format that can hold an unlimited number of video, audio, picture, or subtitle tracks in one file.
Indeed, Microsoft's player won't play it.
Instead you can use for instance the VLC media player, which is a free and open source cross-platform multimedia player.
