An anthropologist was asking a primitive tribesman about arithmetic. When the anthropologist asked, “What does two and two make?” the tribesman replied, “Five.” Asked to explain, the tribesman said, “If I have a rope with two knots, and another rope with two knots, and I join the ropes together, then I have five knots.”
