"Actually its not true that eating too much sugar will cause diabetes!"

Even assuming it does -

This Math problem does not provide full details, when he eats them, does he eat them all at once, or one per day, how big is each bar, what is the sugar content of the calorie bar etc.... Also, the time passed since he ate the 28th bar , as diabetes will not form the minute he ate the 28th bar etc :D

:DHere is another one :So the teacher assigns to Ada, Bob, Charles and Danna to go home and figure out what is 2 + 2.Ada, the daughter of a mathematician, asks her dad. He responds: "Well, 1 + 1 = 2. 2+ 1 = 3. 3 + 1= 4, but it can be rewritten as 2 + 2, so 2 + 2 = 4"Bob asks his mom, who is an engineer. She takes out her HP calculator, punches in RPN the appropiate keys, and announces: "It is 4.000000000000"Charles asks his dad, the phycisist, and he responds: "Well, it is about pi on a zeroth order calculation"Finally, Danna ask his dad, who is an accountant: "Dad, how much is 2 + 2?" And he responds: "How much do you want it to be?"

The joke means that the mathematician calculates it on the basis of iterations (or rounds) 1+1, then +1 and again +1 to give 4. The engineer uses the calculator even for the smallest calculations, and the engineer reports the answer as 4.00..(which proves the engineer is dumb). Physicists are always interested in finding out the value of pi which is by definition the ratio between the circumference and diameter of a circle, and the latest algorithms give the value of pi using certain mathematical series of numbers. the first term is taken as four and then they use the series for a more precise value of pi, so the physicist says the value is 4 on a zero order calculation. You did understand the last part already.
