    If there is one thing I've learned from life, its that there is no such thing as 'normal'. And most people here are snubby upstuck up their own backsided hypocrites, and the few thatcomplain about them :wink:. But no I don't feel normal here, people are so inconsiderate that I don't feel at the same page with others here. But thats my opinion.

    On one hand, being a 37-year-old cabinetmaker and unmedicated family man without police record, I know I'm normal, all too normal.

    On the other hand, earnest questions and hypotheses I've put to this science forum mostly garner lame or flaky comment, or (the vast majority of readers) no comment at all, as though my thoughts are too obscure. Perhaps I need a pickable shtick like 425 Chaotic Requisition's, to pull dialogue here.

    Edit: P.s- this place makes me feel like Esmerelda in the bell tower!

    Maybe this post is interesting for you, especially the article quoted in the original post. In most small communities (high school classes, small villages, neighbourhoods) being intelligent and / or being interested in science is a kind of deviance. Bullies will try to make you believe that it really is something strange to like learning, to seek knowledge voluntarily. But once you look beyond those small communities you find that for a great number of people it's completely normal behaviour. And at this forum it's the standard :wink:

    The main thing I learned at university is that in the end every form of science is interesting, every specialized field of science can be fun to study once you get to know it a bit. As a kid I didnt really understand why people would devote their life to theoretical physics or mathematics. But even though I still don't know much about these fields, I do understand now that people can have a lot of fun with it. It's not something weird, it's just healthy human curiosity

    You pegged him alright. Quesnel is a remote, small, logging town. I'll bet half the kids who stay there get careers at the pulp mills. Or driving log trucks. Itchy feet eh Kenny?

    You are right most of the smart ones are working there part-time now and the ones with no hope for education are opsest about losing there jobs because of the lack of work but this has nothing to do with me, and yes am leaving as soon as possible
