In my freshman chemistry class at Caltech, the prof (Linus Pauling, no
less) used to work out a problem on his 6 in. slide rule and recite the
answer to 6 or 7 digits.  We all knew he had a sheet with the answers
already written down laying on the desk, but who was going to challenge
a Nobel laureate?
