Where is everybody?
There is no class.
Did you send everyone to the principal's officealready?
No one signed up.
Well, that's not your fault.
I called the department secretary to see what happened.
Apparently, I have a reputation for being obnoxious.
Hey, Sheldon, I'm sorry.
No, it's fine.
Now I can devote all my time to dark matter.
Aw, you brought cookies for everyone?
Oh, yes. Fig Newtons.
I was going to ask them: which scientist both helped to develop calculus and had a famouscookie named after him?
And then after someone said "Newton".
I was going to tell them they're wrong.
The cookies are named after a town in Massachusetts.
And then I'd throw the cookies away.
Hey, what if I took your class?
Why would you do that?
Yeah, why would you do that? What's wrong with you?
I'm thinking about getting my doctorate, and he wants to teach why not?

Ask why not again; I've got an answer.
Sheldon, I'm more than smart enough to take your class. No. Yes.
How would you determine the ground state of a quantum system with no exact solution?
I would guess a wavefunction and then vary its parameters until I found the lowest energysolution.
Do you know how to integrate X squared times E to the minus X, without looking it up?
