Something you'd like to share?

A tale of woe, perhaps?

Fifteen years old.

Dennis Kim's 15 years old, and he's already correcting my work.

Today, I went from being wolfgang amadeus mozart, to...

You know, that other guy.

Antonio salieri?

Oh god, now even you're smarter than me.

You know, sheldon, you don't have

So many friends that you can afford

To start insulting them.

Just eat, sheldon, you'll feel better.

Why waste food?

In texas, when a cow goes dry,

They don't keep feeding it, they just take her out

And shoot her between the eyes.

I'm confused.

Did sheldon stop giving milk?

You can't let this kid get to you.

You always knew that someday someone would come along

Who was younger and smarter.

Yes, but I assumed I would've been dead

Hundreds of years and that there'd be

An asterisk by his name because he'd be a cyborg.

So you've got a little competition.

I really don't see what the big deal is.

Well, of course you don't.

You've never excelled at anything.

I don't understand-- exactly how

Did he get any friends in the first place?

We liked leonard.

Well, what are you gonna do, sheldon, just give up?


It's what a rational person does

When his entire life's work is invalidated

By a postpubescent asian wunderkind.

He ceases his fruitless efforts,

He donates his body to scientific research,

And he waits to die.

You know, I'm confused again.

Is he waiting, or do we get

To shoot him between the eyes?

I've decided you're right.

My career is not over.


But since the arrival of dennis kim

Has rendered my research pointless,

I just have to find something else to focus on.


So I've decided I'm going to collaborate with you.


So what exactly is it you do?

I know you chatter on about it all the time,

But I've never really paid attention.

Okay, well, right now I'm designing an experiment

To study the soft component of cosmic radiation

At sea level, but I really don't need any help.

Oh, sure you do.

Now, see, what's this here in the schematic?

Is that a laser array?

Yes. now, hm...

What happens if you use argon lasers

Instead of helium-neon?

It would blow up.

Are you sure? pretty sure.

"pretty sure" is not very scientific.

Is this how you normally work?

Just hunches and guesses and stuff?

Okay, sheldon, I understand that you're

Going through a bit of a career crisis,

You're searching for some other area

Where you can feel valuable and productive,

But I need to tell you something,

And I want you to listen carefully.

All right.

Go away.

If you're concerned about sharing credit with me,

Your name can go first-- I'm going.

It's a small, brown paper bag, ma!

I'm looking in it right now.

Why would I make that up?

There's no ding dong in it.

How are two ding dongs tomorrow gonna help me today?


This is engineering, huh?

I'll talk to you later.


Where the noble semiskilled laborers

Execute the vision of those who think and dream.

Hello, oompah loompahs of science.

Sheldon, what are you doing here?

I just came by to say hello.

I've been in this lab for three years.

You've never come by to say hello.

Well, up until now, I've had better things to do.

So, what are we making today?

A small payload support structure

For a european science experimental package

That's going up on the next space shuttle.

Really? how does it work?

When this is done, it will be attached

To the payload bay, and the sensor apparatus

Will rest on it.

So it's a shelf.

No, you don't understand-- during acceleration,

It needs to stay perfectly level and provide...

Yeah, okay, it's a shelf.

Now, I notice you're using titanium.

Did you give any consideration to carbon nanotubes?

They're lighter, cheaper, and have twice the tensile strength.


There's a diploma in my office

That says I have a master's in engineering.

And you also have a note from your mother

That says, "i love you, bubula."

But neither of those is a cogent argument

For titanium over nanotubes.

Sheldon? yes?

Go away!

Did leonard tell you to say that?

No, I thought of it all by myself.
