    Hi,
    My favourite subject is Mathematics. I love the subject and i also take special help from a website [link deleted] which provide online math tutoring service and hence math has now become a very simple subject for me.

    I enjoy learning about just about anything. I feel that to be more understanding about everything around me I should try to learn about everything that I can. That way I can become a more knowledgeable and wiser person for knowledge is the key to wisdom.

    I always enjoyed classes about global cycles (weather, water, soil, etc). I like to know how this spheroid keeps me alive hurtling through a vacuum at incomprehensible speed.

    My favorite subjects are abiogenesis (investigation to the origin(s) of life) and cell biology (both prokaryotic and eukaryotic).
    "The only safe rule is to dispute only with those of your acquaintance of whom you know that they possess sufficient intelligence and self-respect not to advance absurdities; to appeal to reason and not to authority, and to listen to reason and yield to it; and, finally, to be willing to accept reason even from an opponent, and to be just enough to bear being proved to be in the wrong."

    You like knowing, as in, you already know how, or you would like knowing how...... ? While still a kid, my Dad taunted me with questions about why does the ocean on the "bottom side" of the world not "spill off"!

    I fell in love with psychology, but I also really enjoy chemistry. Looking forward to virology though, I have a feeling I'm really going to like that.

    I was in love with physics from an early age but I had little opportunity to study it in school until I got to college. The one year of physics offered by my high school was decidedly disappointing. The instructor began his first lecture by asking how many students were Catholics. After a couple of students incautiously raised their hands he remarked we now knew who was going to fail. Stymied by the intolerance of the faculty, I read as many science books as I could get my hands on. I was rather astonished when I got to college and found professors who actually loved science and didn't spend their time making jokes about people so stupid as to believe in evolution.

    My high school Physics teacher called me "Legs". I got very sick my sophomore year and I was gone for four months and home taught (by a qualified instructor) during that time. When I got back to class, he announced, "Legs" was back, but the funniest one was another girl in my class, who had no interest in learning anything but had to take this for whatever reason. She came in wearing ALL RED!

    He looked at her as she got into her seat, and said, "Theresa, you look like a cherry, can I have a bite?"

    You surely could not do that now, but it was quite difficult to really learn from him when he was in a constant phase of salivation!

    My earlier interest were on the natural physical sciences (except biology), math, history and playing instruments (flute & organ), and trade skills such as engine repair and carpentry.

    Generally hated High School and dropped out during my Junior year. (Later went to college)

    Later I developed an interest in biology, sociology and education/child development and wood working. Most of my adult life I've been in some form of study.

    Life is dull without learning.

    High interest. These I pursue academically.

    Japanese language
    Rhetoric
    Philosophy

    Medium interest. These are more hobbies when I have time.

    English language
    Psychology
    History

    Low interest. Things I dont have much time for either academically or as a hobby, but still peak my interest in conversation.

    Geology
    Social studies
    Politics

    No interest.

    Math
    chemistry
    physics.

    Yikes. Yep that wouldn't fly today.

    Though I was a bit horrified to hear a recent account of a female teacher in her 30s who'd target several senior boys every year to come over and her paint a deck, repair a porch etc every summer after graduation. While her escapades were within, but close to the legal lines--she could still be fired for grooming combined with a ineffectiveness from poor reputation and bad example. It's pretty doubtful though a typical male senior would report anything to do with such an adventure, other than to his friends. She's an English teacher.

    I prefer the term "attempting to combine one's chromosomes".

    Surely going to great lengths to AVOID accidentally combining them.

    Or you could say playing hide-the-sausage , or as my 8yr old son used to say," doing the joint thing with baby particles".

    That is an expression one would expect from the American Pie movies.

    Well, I don't know whether he made it up himself or got it from school. If the latter it may be a quotation from somewhere. I quite like it anyway.
