Engineers Game

A Programmer and an Engineer were sitting next to each other on an airplane. The Programmer leans over to the Engineer and asks if he wants to play a fun game. The Engineer just wants to sleep so he politely declines, turns away and tries to sleep.

The Programmer persists and explains that its a real easy game. He explains,I ask a question and if you dont know the answer you pay me $5. Then you ask a question and if I dont know the answer Ill pay you $5.

Again the Engineer politely declines and tries to sleep.

The Programmer, now somewhat agitated, says, O.K., if you dont know the answer you pay me $5 and if I dont know the answer I pay you $50!

Now, that got the Engineers attention, so he agrees to the game. The Programmer asks the first question, Whats the distance from the earth to the moon?

Then Engineer doesnt say a word and just hands the Programmer $5.

Now, its the Engineers turn. He asks the Programmer, What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down on four?

The Programmer looks at him with a puzzled look, takes out his laptop computer, looks through all his references and after about an hour wakes the Engineer and hands the Engineer $50.

The Engineer politely takes the $50 turns away and tries to return to sleep.

The Programmer, a little miffed, asks, Well whats the answer to the question?

Without a word, the Engineer reaches into his wallet, hands $5 to the Programmer, turns away and returns to sleep.
