Inspired by romantic scenes from Good Will Hunting, A Beautiful Mind and The Theory of Everything, lonely professor Greg Phillips hit the local bar’s this valentines evening chancing to woo a single lady by showing off his superior intellect through writing theorems on napkins or any available windows with a marker pen.
“I tried to best a guy talking to a clearly bored looking woman at the bar by explaining the triple point of pressure, where a substance is liquid, gas and solid at the same time.” explained a clearly mystified looking Greg.
“But they just turned around and carried on talking to each other.”
“Then I saw a guy checking out a group of ladies on his own. I went over explain to him that he should try and dance with the less attractive one of the group in order to up his chance of success, but one of the women overheard and I was asked to leave.”
“It’s starting to feel these films completely fabricated the whole ‘attractive nerd’ thing”.
At the time of publication, Greg was having trouble explaining to a police officer that he hadn’t meant to smash a kebab shop window, he was merely showing a girl his phone number while shouting ‘how’d you like them apples'”
