The Curse of Sheldon Cooper


Dr. Sheldon Cooper : Sorry, Gentlemen, but it doesn’t seem possible under present circumstances.

You see, the word ‘freeze” is derived from the Old English word “fresen” which means “to be hardened into ice”. Unless you plan to surround my body with a sufficient quantity of water, then enclose it in a refrigerator able to produce substantial refrigeration effect and sub-zero temperatures in order to compensate for the combined heat transfer from my body which is at a temperature of 37 degrees Celsius and the surroundings which the thermostat points out as to be at 27 degrees Celsius, I am afraid you won’t be able to “make me freeze”.

Instead of going through all this trouble, I suggest you simple ask me to “remain stationary” with respect to yourself, but for that to happen, you in turn will have to retain your position, so a better explanation will be taking earth as reference that is, relative to the rotary and revolutionary motion of the earth. Though, now that I think about it, there are innumerable other references in space where I will still be moving, say the rotation of our galaxy, the Milky Way…
