Phat Physics


You Might Be A Physics Major ...

if you have no life - and you can PROVE it mathematically.

if you enjoy pain.

if you have diferent pocket protector for each day of the week.

if you know vector calculus but you can't remember how to do long division.

if you chuckle whenever anyone says "centrifugal force."

if you've actually used every single function on your graphing calculator.

if when you look in a mirror, you see a physics major.

if you have memorized Pi to 23 decimal places or more.

if it is sunny and 70 degrees outside, and you are working on a computer.

if you always do homework on Friday nights.

if you carry a picture of Stephen Hawking in your wallet.

if you know how to integrate a chicken and can take the derivative of water.

if you think in "math."

if you've calculated that the World Series actually diverges.

if you hesitate to look at something because you don't want to break down its wave function.

if you have a pet named after a scientist.

if you laugh at jokes about mathematicians.

if you can translate English into Binary.

if you can't remember what's behind the door in the science building which says "Exit."

if you have to bring a jacket with you, in the middle of summer, because there's a wind-chill factor in the lab.

if you avoid doing anything because you don't want to contribute to the eventual heat-death of the universe.

if you consider ANY non-science course "easy."

if when your professor asks you where your homework is, you claim to have accidentally determined its momentum so precisely, that according to Heisenberg it could be anywhere in the universe.

if the "fun" center of your brain has deteriorated from lack of use.

if you'll assume that a "horse" is a "sphere" in order to make the math easier.

if you understood more than five of these indicators.

if you make a hard copy of this list, and post it on your door.

This posts suggests that a possible "You might be an English major..." post might be in the offing?

OR

...You might be a Blogger..
...You might be a Politician ...
...You might be a lawyer..

...and of course the word "Redneck" could be inserted in front of those....

Why can't I think of these when I am in a creative mode?

Ah, but you've thought of them NOW and have fodder for at least 4 more posts.:)

Love the Phat.
