reasons why professor socher is awesome

1. Comes in with five boxes of donuts and a jug of coffee. Begins lecture, then casually says, "yeah, so I bought coffee and donuts for you guys because I got tenure yesterday." Entire class applauds.

2. Tells the story of how the rabbis took literally the line from scripture that goes (paraphrased) "The Temple was not built with instruments of war," and concluded that the Temple was not built with axes or other iron tools. Describes how they came to the conclusion that it was crafted by a snake of divine light, which he describes as a "worm laser." Admits this has nothing to do with the topic being discussed.

3. Four words: Pirate rabbi Resh Lokish.
