Overheard:
MSCI Prof: "How much potential do each of you have? Do you have more potential then I do? Can you measure it?"

Eng. Student: "You can. It has something to do with mass and energy."

  1. I think I get it but I'm not certain. Can someone confirm the punchline so I know whether or not I'm misunderstanding the joke. Thanks in advance

  2. my take is...

    msci prof was referring to potential in the human sense, "you have potential to achieve greatness"

    The joke is that the student gave a witty reply where the word potential was interpreted as the literal scientific term. E=mc^2 ?
