Trivia: Jim Carey and Conan O'Brien

A paper by Gabrielse, with his graduate students Enzer and Lapidus, provides actor Jim Carey the opportunity to demonstrate his love of reading and his broad knowledge to late night television talk show host, Conan O'Brien. Jim illustrates his fascination with quantum mechanics by quoting extensively directly from this "interesting paper". Not to be outdone, Conan proves his own knowledge of this paper with quotations of his own. The show's band leader chimes in with his own quotations from he paper, but Carey derides him for getting a factor of two wrong in his quotations.
