Schrödinger's Coolness

Vice President Joe Biden seems to have the ability to be totally cool and totally uncool at the same time.

When I made this comment, my son observed that this was "Schrodinger's Coolness," in that he is simultaneously cool and not cool, much like the famously indeterminate cat.

Case in point are reports that Biden made a friendship bracelet for Barack Obama for his 55th birthday:
Vice President Biden on Thursday celebrated President Obama's 55th birthday with a touching note on Twitter.
I'm gonna miss him when Bond villain wannabe Mike Pence takes the seat.

Considering the explosion of Biden memes on Facebook, I do not think that I am alone in this.

You are an Engineer. Do Not, repeat, Do Not use Quantum Mechanics with the help of a trained specialist.

Don't you mean "Do not use Quantum Mechanics withOUT the help of a trained specialist?"

So, you're the physicist, what would you call Schrodinger's cool.
