Two blokes, a mathematician and an engineer agreed to take part in an experiment. They were both placed in a room and at the other end was a beautiful naked woman on a bed. The researcher said that every 30 seconds they would be allowed to travel half the distance between themselves and the woman. The mathematician started to storm out of the room shouting "This is pointless". The engineer agreed to go ahead with the experiment anyway. Upon hearing this and just before going out through the door the mathematician turns and says, "Don't you get it? You'll never actually reach her!" To which the engineer replies, "So what? Pretty soon I'll be close enough for all practical purposes."
