Neils, Bohr?

Niels Bohr had a propensity for thinking aloud, often using a student or colleague as a sounding board. On one occasion, Bohr, in search of company after a week-long ocean voyage, entered Princeton's Institute for Advanced Study (IAS), corralled two colleagues (Abraham Pais and Wolfgang Pauli) into an office, sat them down, and proceeded to muse at length on quantum theory. They were finally able to interrupt -- two hours later.
