Hi! I'm new to this community. It's 1.55am here in the UK. I have just watched a lengthy programme about quantum theory, then I read up on all the bits I didn't understand. When I say "read up on," I mean looked on Wikipedia. This probably means I am vastly more misinformed about atoms than I was before tonight began. I haven't studied Physics since school. I hated it. All this complex information should have made me sleepy. I'm sure I used to sleep frequently during all science lessons in school. My Physics = Sleep theory failed. I think I shall resort to watching House and taking codeine.

Does anyone have any interesting sleep-related icons? There must be some insomniac icon makers amongst you.

in my esteem, Wikipedia is a lot better than people give it credit for. I personally respect people who bother to look up things they don't understand at all, especially a peer-reviewed (so to speak, hahaha, ironically, too) site like Wikipedia.

Physics is way more interesting than the vast majority of high school teachers let it be. It's literally the way in which our universe functions... approaching empirically all those sorts of issues religion tried to answer through divine inspiration.

I agree re: Wikipedia. I seem to use it with increasing regularity. However it's only when I look up subjects that I already know a bit about that I realise how many inaccuracies there are on it. It's often a good starting point when I don't know anything about a topic, though.

I find often find TV and radio programmes about physics fascinating now and I make an effort to watch/listen to them, but I hated the subject with a passion in school. My teacher was unbelievably vile! I still dislike that woman with a disturbing ferocity; the bitch! I think I need Physics-related therapy.

yeah, for some reason, the people who hire teachers think it's a good idea to hire lots of humorless cunts and oppressive fascists.
