Dr. Niedorf: All right, I'll start the questions, and I'll be timing your responses, and we'll be recording. Any questions?
George: What's your first name?
Dr. Niedorf: Uh, my first name is Bob. [George reaches across the wide table to shake hands]
George: Shoot, Bob.
Dr. Niedorf: Right. Name as many mammals as you can in 60 seconds. Ready? Go. [starts stopwatch]
George: Hmm. 60 seconds. Well, how would you like that? How about alphabetical? Aardvark, baboon, caribou, dolphin, eohippus, fox, gorilla, hyena, ibex, jackal, kangaroo, lion, marmoset, Newfoundland, ocelot, panda, rat, sloth, tiger, unicorn, varmint, whale, yak, zebra. Now "varmint" is a stretch; so is "Newfoundland" (that's a dog breed); "unicorn" is mythical, "eohippus" is prehistoric. But you weren't being very specific. Now were you, Bob?
Dr. Niedorf: [pauses, then stops watch and laughs] Well! Ahh, I'll, uh — I'll try to be more specific. You ready for the next one?
George: Shoot.
Dr. Niedorf: Answer as quickly as you can... how old is a person born in 1928? [starts stopwatch]
George: Man or a woman?
Dr. Niedorf: [stops stopwatch and pauses] Why?
George: Specifics, Bob.
Dr. Niedorf: Okay, one more time. How old is a MAN born in 1928? [starts stopwatch]
George: Still alive?
Dr. Niedorf: [stops watch, pauses, nods] If a man is born in 1928, and he's still alive, how old is he? [starts stopwatch]
George: What month?
Dr. Niedorf: [stops stopwatch] If a man was born October 3, 1928, and he's still alive, how old is he? [starts stopwatch]
George: What time?
Dr. Niedorf: 10:00... PM! [starts stopwatch]
George: Where?
Dr. Niedorf: [stops stopwatch; now impatient] Anywhere!
George: Well. Let's get specific, Bob! I mean, if the guy's still alive, born in California, October 3, 1928, 10:00 PM. he 67 years, 9 months, 22 days, 14 hours, and... [takes Bob's hand to see his wristwatch] ...and 12 minutes. If he was born in New York, he's 3 hours older, now isn't he?
