Great Expectations. Eh, it just wasn't what I hoped for.

Re: Books that make you genuinely laugh

The Third Policeman by Flann O'Brien is a recent one that made me laugh pretty hard. It starts off slow but once it gets caught up in its own metaphysics its hilarious. Overall funniest book is easily Catch-22, though, perhaps followed by Against the Day, which as far as I am concerned is Pynchon's ...

Re: Punk Rock

Is anyone going to the Have Heart and Ceremony show tomorrow in Allston, at the ICC? It looks to be probably the best show of the year and it'd be pretty cool to see some fellow xkcders there

Re: Actual Physics Research

Depending on your field, you may be doing more programming than actual physics (if you do theory. I can't say much about experiment). My plan is to get a BS in Physics and then master in theoretical physics, specifically for that reason. I love programming and computer science, so hopefully I'll be...

Re: Actual Physics Research

Well, first of all, you have to have a really, really clear understanding of what you're working on. This means lots and lots of education. Once you've finished your postdoc, you might know enough to do a little bit of research. Also, as a physics major, you'll have fun telling people that rocket s...

Re: Actual Physics Research

It depends a lot on the area of physics you go into. I'm currently an undergrad physics major working in a condensed matter lab, so I don't have much experience in other areas. I do a variety of different things, but usually I am preparing thin polymer films and then doing different measurements on...

Actual Physics Research

I am a senior in high school and have become absolutely enamored with physics. I wish to pursue the science into college and would love to major in it. That said, I've heard things (on this forum and others, such as physicsforums.org) that there is a difference between learning physics and the actua...
