Sheldon Sings "I Got Algorithm"





Hello there. As I'm sure you know, I'm Sheldon Cooper, noted theoretical physicist, mentor to famed cosmologist Stephen Hawking, and trusted adviser to Professor Proton and Bill Nye the Science Guy.



I'm a whiz with numbers, statistics and equations. The only figure that's a mystery to me belongs to Amy Farrah Fowler.
(BA-DUM-BUMP)

Shady told me to say BA-DUM-BUMP. I'm pretty sure it means the same thing as BAZINGA, a word I spoke a total of 19 times from season two through eight.

Although, to be completely accurate, I didn't
say BAZINGA at all in season six or seven.

Naturally, the fact that I am a star mathlete
makes me the perfect candidate to present
Shady's arithmetical trivia question.
It's a real brain buster so look out.


TRIVIA QUESTION:

What is the square root of

 19,881?

While you're mulling it over in a
feeble attempt to come up with the
answer, why don't you listen to a
few songs with numbers in the title?

"Deep Six" - Marliyn Manson
(Jan. 2015, highest chart pos.

ANSWER TO

TRIVIA QUESTION

What is the square root of

 19,881?


It's 141...

...and you could have arrived at that figure
simply by adding the numbers in the titles
of the above songs. Now don't you just
feel silly, inadequate, and completely
inferior to yours truly?


I must admit that I rather enjoyed
serving as master of ceremonies.
For years I've tinkered with the idea
of becoming a stand-up comic on the
laugh club circuit. Perhaps it's time
for me to blow this pop stand and
make my mark as a comedy legend.

I'll call myself Shecky Shelley.
Let me try a joke out on you.
Here goes. On his day off, a
physicist put a sign on his
door. What did the sign say?

(Wait for it.)

GONE NUCLEAR FISSION.
(snicker snort, snicker snort)

BAZINGA... er, I mean
BA-DUM-BUMP!

I don't know about you, but I
get a big bang out of that one.
