Sheldon busted - no credit to source

Unless Sheldon wrote the Wikipedia definition for "bailment", he is plagarizing. He explained it to Penny as:

Bailment describes a legal relationship in common law where physical possession of personal property, or chattel, is transferred from one person (the 'bailor') to another person (the 'bailee') who subsequently has possession of the property. It arises when a person gives property to someone else for safekeeping.

This is word for word from Wikipedia. Of course, Dr. Cooper may have written the Wikipedia article, I suppose.

In reality geeks quote sources on a regular basis. Sheldon NOT quoting one source or another when defining a word would seem odd to me.

A source is only useful when the other party is interested in where you got the information. Sharing a source with Penny would be useless.
