  1. A physicist, a biologist, and a mathematician are sitting on a bench across from a house. They watch as two people go into the house, and then a little later, three people walk out. The physicist says, "The initial measurement was incorrect." The biologist says, "They must have reproduced." And the mathematician says, "If exactly one person enters that house, it will be empty."
  2. Heisenberg, Gödel and Chomsky walk into a bar. Heisenberg notes, “We seem to have stumbled into a joke. But I can't tell whether it's funny.” Gödel points out, “Since we are currently inside the joke, it is impossible to tell.” Chomsky says, “Quite clearly it's funny. You are just telling it wrong!”

    Poe, E. Near a Raven Midnights so dreary, tired and weary. Silently pondering volumes extolling all by-now obsolete lore. During my rather long nap -- the weirdest tap! An ominous vibrating sound disturbing my chamber's antedoor. 'This,' I whispered quietly, 'I ignore.' - Mike Keith, 1995

    Agree. If "Heidi" is the intended subject of "found," a 2nd "who" would serve no purpose except to confuse. It would not be used. Instead, Heidi is { immediately right of (Person A) } and found { more caches than (Person B) }. But since there are two "who"s, it's proper to bind them to the same (and closest) antecedent: ..... (Person A) { who has flown ... } and { who found more ... } 7) Heidi is immediately right of the person who has flown over from the States, and who found more caches than the UK cacher. 40 Traditional cache where found by a European cacher, their favourite type. Agree. They could not be Pitches 3 and 5, for example. I also fixed a typo in my interpretation post.
