   Discussion: What's your favorite science?
Gordondon son of Ethelred · 14 years, 1 month ago
I voted for physics but astronomy is up there.

Scientology i'm assuming is a joke. Everyone knows that Dianetics is the "modern science of mental health" and Scientology is the associated religion.

Computer science isn't really a science. The theory is a branch of mathematics and the application is technology.

My first reaction was that this was one of my polls.

I think you really mean, "Scientology is the associated corporation."
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 14 years, 1 month ago
I'm sending Tom Cruise after you.
We have the plot for MI IV.

Personally I'm waiting for the 999th film in the series, MI IM: Attack of the palindromes.

Bender Back · 14 years, 1 month ago
I'm already Fair Game. It's not Tom Cruise that scares me.
Rachel Marie aka RAI Back · 14 years ago
C'mon Grodon, you know me better than that. Of COURSE Scientology is a serious choice.

Long live Suri, the crown princess of the Church of Scientology!

If I'm reading about it, I'm fascinated by physics, astronomy, mathematics, all of the stuff that winds up having the classic blackboard-sized equations. The numbers go right over my head, but I'm good at grasping the concepts.

If I'm doing the work, then I tend to lean towards biology, because (at the level I've taken it) it has the least to do with numbers.

Of course, I'm also fascinated with Experimental Theology, but that's another world...

darn. i kinda skipped over the astronomy option which is what i would have chosen...
*joolee* · 14 years, 1 month ago
Not really a fan of science. Astronomy might have been if I didn't have such a crap for crap experience in college. I guess I'll have to go with CS...I did well with that and didn't hate it too much. :)

..i should have voted Comptuer since it's what my degree is and all, but really i was always a sucker for Geology.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 14 years, 1 month ago
Good to know. If anyone wants to get you a gift they can get you a commemorative tectonic plate set.
sheryls Back · 14 years, 1 month ago

what a lovely sediment that would be! absolutely igneous of you to think of that.

Andrea Krause Back · 14 years, 1 month ago
Those crusty ol' things? Gee, what an imagmative gift, Gordon.

They make a great investments. The Gondwanaland plate has increased in value 700% since it was issued. The Indian plate's value has increased 900%. *

*There is no guarentee that future plates will go up in value.

I knew this sounded like one of my polls.
Rachel Marie aka RAI Back · 14 years ago
Well SOME of us don't memorize every single FHDC poll ever. ;oP

I was always a dunce at science. I did totally rock academic chem, but that's because my teacher was super easy and liked me.
dgodwin · 14 years, 1 month ago
I teach/have taught Earth Science, Biology, General Science, and Environmental Science. I really couldn't choose. Each have their high points and low points.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 14 years, 1 month ago
Which one has the lowest highest point?
J. Andrew World · 14 years ago
My favorate is science fiction.
Kris 'engaged' Bedient · 14 years ago
Seeing as I just got my degree in it. Right up there in line, though, is geology.
renita · 14 years ago
i voted for physics because the physics of music class that i took was my favorite science class EVAR.

but after i voted i saw that biology encompassed all medical sciences so I might have chosen that one since i've been studying neurology for the rehabilitative sciences.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 14 years ago
You voted right, physics rocks the casbah. I want to take physics of music. The one problem I could never really figure out on my own is where the energy comes from to amplify the sounds in a string instrument. If you just pluck a string in the air it isn't nearly as loud. I know it has to do with resonance but that doesn't say where the energy comes from. Move of the energy of pluck goes into sound in guitar than in an isolate string. So where does the other energy go? Heat? Does it vibrate longer?
