Brian Regan probably won't be able to master string theory by sitting on the couch watching "Nova." (1:37)

Have you seen that show?

They had a thinga couple of weeks agoabout string theory.

I started watching thatat 8:00 p.m.,

and at 8:03 my brain exploded.

They said string theoryis the stuff...

that the physicistsare now figuring out...

that Albert Einsteinwas not able to nail downin his theories.

So I'm thinking,"Well, if Albert Einsteindidn't understand it,

me on a couchwith a bag of potato chipsdon't have a shot."

"Oh, I see whatthey're talking about.

"Yeah, you gottaincorporate gravity.

I always wondered whyhe didn't do that."

I'm sitting there workingon my string cheese theory.

You know, they always sayAlbert Einstein was a genius.

Then how come when anyoneever calls you that,it's an insult?

"You won't know whereyou parked the car?Good job, Einstein."

I don't think we'rehonoring that man properly...

by using his name in vainin parking lots.

That's the only timehe ever comes up.
