Its unfair to imply that Prof. Borrello's habit comes from a desire to impress viewers with his intelligence. Its more likely the habit comes from the pleasure of intellectual intercourse. Something similar to the endearing habit of some people to repeat..'yes', 'yes', 'yes' during sexual intercourse. Cut an enthusiastic intellectual a break why don't you?
