### Re: Reactions to your Major

I had something similar a while ago. I'm not actually at university yet, but I've been attending open days to decide where to apply, and of course as you meet people and make small talk the default question is "so what subject are you applying for?" Now, I started talking to one person whi...

### Re: 0842: "Mark"

Sheesh folks - just because there's a penis joke at the end does NOT invalidate the clever setup. Shakespeare had countless penis jokes. Bill Hicks mocked himself for the number of penis jokes he told - they can be clever, and be told by clever people. Hell, this is a META penis joke, crossed with ...

### Re: "3x9" Discussion (#759)

Kinda reminds me of this fun math tidbit... Solve for x: x^2 - x - 20 = 10 ... hmm okay, factor the left hand side... (x + 4)(x - 5) = 10 ah great, now it's just a matter of solving for (x + 4) = 10 and (x - 5) = 10 x is either 6 or -5 Check with the original statement: 6^2 - 6 - 20...

### Small point about friction/normal contact force

Hi guys. So, my A level mechanics teacher mentioned to us that the magnitude of the coefficient of friction between two objects is based on the tangent of the angle of contact between them. Now, he mentioned this more in passing than anything else, so I can't bring up this secondary point without de...

### Motivation

Hi there forum. I've been a long-time lurker, and I figured this would be the place to come to for this. So, I'm doing my A levels in school currently (I'm not sure what the equivalent is for you Americans out there, but they're the qualifications that govern what universities we get accepted into) ...
