    I used to be an aerospace engineer, mostly working with structural vibration. This involves the forces involved in oscillatory motion that can get destructive (look up the 1940 collapse of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, “Gallopin’ Gertie”). Plus lots of math, which has its own vocabulary, like “scalar,”

    It makes my brain hurt when I hear someone spout off about “scalar waves.” Um, no. Then as he rambled on it got worse.

    I loved this man and he would not be led from his over-rehearsed lecture on the subject, doggedly making his laborious points despite your best efforts.

    You’d learn nothing from any lecture he’d give except that he’s well rehearsed and adverse to probing questions.
