This Blog is a blog on the character Howard Wolowitz from the Smash hit tv-show the big bang theory. Howard Wolowitz, M.Eng., is a Jewish aerospace engineer who lives with his mother. As the best friend of Rajesh Koothrappali, Howard often hangs out at Leonard and Sheldon’s apartment with him. Although he’s the only member of the group lacking a doctoral degree, he defends this by pointing out that he not only has a Master’s degree in Engineering from MIT, but also designs important devices like the “space toilet” used at the International Space Station. Fancying himself a smooth ladies’ man, Howard is rather confident in trying to woo girls (unlike the other three), mostly through creepy overtures and sometimes with his knowledge of foreign languages, of which he knows seven (including Klingon). During the show he dates and eventually marries Bernadette, with whom he bonded over their hatred towards their overbearing mothers. He is also an astronaut.
Cheeky and supposedly suave, Howard provides outrageous techniques in an attempt to get girls in the first three seasons, none of which are remotely successful. Howard ‘s techniques to approach women are varied, including magic and card tricks, ventriloquism, and techniques from the Mystery Method, such as peacocking and negging. He is consistently depicted as the most sex-crazed of the guys, although he doesn’t think his sexual behavior is any different from other men. One time, he developed a mathematical formula for the likelihood of him having sex by applying and modifying the Drake equation to include the “Wolowitz coefficient,” which he defined as “neediness times dress size squared.” He stated, “I’m a horny engineer… I never joke about math or sex.” He often fantasizes about several actresses, including Katee Sackhoff, but apparently every woman is his type. Howard describes himself as a romantic, although he usually comes across as overtly sexual and, in Penny’s words, disgusting. However, as the series progresses, Howard becomes dedicated to Bernadette, although he still uses pick-up lines. He reveals more of his facets to Bernadette. As part of his delusions regarding himself, he opines that he is a “tender-hearted poet” and “crazy daredevil”. He claims to appear confident and worldly, though he admits he is not.
