(Dub) 3 : The Obsessive Scientist


The unadulterated loyalty often invovles brand-centric fan groups, which scientists refer to as brand communities. These groups, which have formed around Apple, Harley-Davidson and even Hello Kitty, seem to rise up largely without the aid of sly marketing campaigns and instead by grassroots movements with their own rituals and traditions. Some even say the Apple community has the makings of a cult, with fanaticism that comes close to religious furor.

After much trial and effort, Zombieman is able to track down the former mad doctor and his cyborg aid and confronts them about his suspicions that they are the God level threat mentioned in Shibabawa's prophecy. However, when Zombieman does confront them he instead learns that Dr. Genus had discarded the very idea of the House of Evolution. He now agrees with Saitama's philosophy that what makes humans strong is that they can change themselves, without the need for monsterization, cybernetics, genetic engineering or drug regimens.Genus goes on to detail his theory about Saitama's power: In order to function, every living thing needs to have limitations placed on itself, or else the immense power of a limitless being would drive them insane, and the mechanism for controlling that growth is called a limiter. He further explains that in Saitama's case, as a result of having removed his limiter, aside from losing all of his hair, he also suffered suffocation isolation. After Genus's explanation about the limiter that is placed upon an organism, Zombieman asks Genus one last thing that why he opened a takoyaki shop, and the scientist replies that through his research into physical regeneration, he discovered a way to grow octopus tentacles infinitely.

He is often neglectful to his son, and after his son's death is obsessed with rebuilding him into a robot. He is initially kind and happy with Astro, but once he realizes he will never grow, he spirals into hatred and frustration of the robot, even going so far as to hit him with a broom or shovel. Once Dr. Ochanomizu takes Astro in, Tenma is obsessive with getting Astro back. He often ignores Astro's feelings and is capricious when his plans are foiled- he will apologize for his actions in one chapter, then attempt to get Astro back to him in another. However, in the manga chapter, "The Greatest Robot on Earth", Tenma and Astro appear to be on good terms with each other, and Tenma upgrades Astro to have one million horsepower.

Umataro is rather cold towards the duo's robot progeny, A106. He mainly sees the robot as a work-in-progress and a means to a future successful project. However, he has moments of realizing he's gone too far with testing A106's strength or battle abilities. Umataro is also in love with Dr. Lolo, a mysterious competing female scientist, but seems very jealous of anyone who gets close to Hiroshi.

In the 11th and 12th seasons, Sheldon and Amy work together on a Super-Asymmetry for string theory which is published and widely applauded. After a couple of Fermi-Lab scientists accidentally prove their theory, all of them are in competition for a possible Nobel Prize.

Due to his eccentric behavior and arrogance, Sheldon isn't well-liked by many people. Due to his belief that he's intellectually "superior", he's not ashamed to insult his own friends, like Leonard, whose work Sheldon deems derivative and who never appreciated his overbearing mother; Howard, who's merely an engineer and not a real scientist, and also doesn't possess a doctorate (despite the fact that engineering has more practical real-world applications, as well as more related jobs, than theoretical physics does, a fact that Sheldon doesn't take into account); and Penny, who Sheldon considers (and in some ways, is) the polar opposite of an intellectual. He often mocks her for having once dropped out of a community college. In "The Thespian Catalyst", Sheldon makes a speech to a class of bored and disinterested grad students, reminding them that they will never be as smart as he is. Teaching is something else that Sheldon fails at having no social skills.

The most notable feature of Sheldon's obsessive-compulsive disorder is his refusal to sit anywhere other than his designated spot on the far left cushion of the couch in his apartment, which he considers his "single point of consistency in an ever-changing world" and "the singular location in space around which revolves my entire universe", exceeding his love for his mother. He describes his spot on the couch as being his point 0, 0, 0, 0 if his life were a Cartesian coordinate plan. Sheldon regularly reproaches Penny and other people for sitting in his spot. Even disruptions to this location are enough to disturb him. Although he did allow Penny to sit in his spot in the first episode, as well as Howard, for a short time in "The Apology Insufficiency", only 94 seconds later, he reclaims his spot. As well as his designated spot in the apartment, if Sheldon is ever in a different area where he is going to sit down, such as Penny's apartment, he has to choose the best sitting location based on such things as optimal television viewing, lighting, airflow, and cushion density. In "The Werewolf Transformation", when his barber was ill and chaos ruled his life, he didn't object to Penny sitting in his spot. In "The Mommy Observation" Leonard reveals that Sheldon has a very sensitive butt and can tell when someone was sitting in his spot. However, when at the North Pole the furniture in their cabin was arranged like in Apartment 4A with his spot being in the appropriate location.

In "The Cohabitation Experimentation", they finally move in together as a part of a five-week experiment suggested by Amy after a plumbing accident renders her apartment uninhabitable. Sheldon wonders if any comfort he feels from living with Amy could be due to his normal surroundings so they move into a neutral territory - Penny's old apartment. Coitus will be off the table until they see how comfortable their living arrangements work out. After discussing which side of the bed they prefer, they settle in for the night and Amy finds that Sheldon has rough dreams and he pushes her out of the bed onto the floor. The next morning they argue about whether they should live together. Sheldon is upset that as a scientist that she should not want to continue with their experiment. The science argument obviously turns them on and they adjourn to their apartment to make out.
