So an engineer, a physicist, and a statistician are all sleeping in a hotel

suddenly an outlet catches fire. The engineer wakes up first and says to himself “this is an electrical fire, water won’t work!” And runs to grab a fire extinguisher. The physicist wakes up next and thinks to himself “we have to cut the electricity off!” And runs to the power panel in the basement. The statistician wakes up and looks around, he then screams “we need more data!!” And he sets the curtains on fire.
