    If Bush had the brains of my chairs, he'd be gettin' somewheres. :wink: My chairs don't have any brains, and yet they're still smarter than he is.

    I have no idea on what that really implies to. However, in enlightenment to what you said, my signature is not a "cookie spewer." -- I'm just simply implying that I'm offering a hypothetical cookie, as a kind jester. :wink:

    I forgot to greet you though.
    Welcome.
    I look forward to your input in your fields of interest.
    Genetics, Biochemistry, and Molecular Biology are some of the areas that I'm looking into right now.
    Maybe you can lend a hand when I have questions that I can't clear up on my own. Molecular biology is a tricky subject to learn without a teacher. Textbooks only go so far. There are always questions that go unanswered or answers that lead to unasked question (and hence no answers).


    Anyway. Don't mind me. I don't bite that hard. Do I?
    (The page is much nicer without the picture though. You should try it.)

    I'm sure if it's too much of a bothersome, I'm sure an administrator will remove the picture from my signature. It wouldn't bother me any. Either way, I'm cool with it. :wink:

    I'll let the rather tall picture slide for little bit longer, then will be forced to replace it with something really bad. Perhaps a picture of George Bush.

    OK, it's been removed. (In)Sanity/Genome72's idea still sounds like a plus to me, anyway.

    You didn't have to remove it. I just have an issue with graphical signatures period. I really don't like seeing a page full of pictures when I'm here for words.

    Adblock was working fine for me.

    Most forums have the option to not see signatures, but that's a modification that hasn't been implemented into this forum's software yet.


    And. Genome. As to the ratio. Dunno. Does it matter?

    Hey Invert, yah someday I'll add that option in. Thanks for the reminder. I know the mods exist for it. Perhaps I coud add it in like the ignore user is setup.

    No problem. I guess banners could get a bit annoying, perhaps. Particularly, if they were overbearingly presumptuous.

    Hello to everyone in here. as a brief intro I am glad of being inscribed for the purpose of sharing knowledge and to learn more by integrating myself in the world of sciences through this forum. I am currently studying chemistry at the university of puerto rico with a special interest for research. another area of the natural sciences that I am fond of is physical chemistry and physics specially the area of astronomy (though I want to grasp their concept in a more profound way). in the field of arts I play flute and piano preferably in the genre of classical music. apart from the music and the sciences I am taking a french course to learn a new culture apart from my own.
    so thank you for existing and lets keep the thinking and looking for "logos" going because the good thing is that it never stops.

    with appreciation,
    guillermo alverio

    Welcome Guillermo! Your broad interest in science as something shared by many of us, so that should fit well :wink: You may also find French speakers here, who probably like helping you train and improve your language skills. It's a very good way to jumpstart your efforts of learning a new language. (I speak a few words French myself, so if you need any help just let me know).

I live in Finland but i did born in Estonia and i live whether here or there. I'm 25 years old and it would be cool to be scientist. I'm not but at least i can hang out with them and ask questions. I really need to know about blackholes - those are really scary 8)

    Welcome! Not all of us are scientist, but we are all interested in science :wink: Black holes are fascinating indeed. Steven Hawkin did a lot of research in that field, and also wrote some popular scientific books about it. (I have read "Steven Hawkins universe", a bbc production. may be interesting for you).

    hello, I'm Mimi, scientist-in-training (BS in Biology) *dull echo of a chorus of "Hello Mimi's"* I have an interest in how modern communication has changed how science is taught, learned, etc., so when I found this site on a boredom-fueled Web crawl, I had to join. Hello All!

    I'm Truestar, many shorten it to TS.

    I'm an official nerd in my school receiving A's in all my classes for my 8 years in grade school. The only exception in the first semester this year, in which I'm taking a 10th grade Biology class in the 8th grade. Currently I regret it, but I know it will pay off. I suppose an 88 isn't oo bad seeing as the class is definitely not designed to be easy. :P But alas, below 90 can be disappointing. But seeing as these forums seem to generate a lot of intelligent discussion, hopefully I can learn something.

    As you can probably tell I love school just like I love my mom. My "expertise" is Social Studies/History. I just can't get enough of it.

    I also live in the US, yes that stuck up place you call a country. I am a politician at thirteen, and my parents aren't too happy seeing as my views are very "radical".

    Ah, what else. Yes, I am an official member of the "nerd herd" at my school. Our group is dedicated to doing well in life, unlike our counterparts. Enough abot that though.

    I found this link at another website, and seeing as this site is about all forms of science and more, I figured I should join. Being a controversial perosn, I can't wait to dive in to discussion. But I hope you don't mind if I sit back for awhile and observe as to not make any stupid mistakes in posting.

    It's nice to be here, and I look forward to metting you all! :-D

    I am a Chinese. I proposed "hydrosphere spending hypothesis", which is posted on "earth science" of the forrum.

    I want to know, who produce and care of the forum? where is the home of the forum?
    The hydrosphere-spending, is a long chain in space & time.
    In space, one end links sea-floor, another end links upper atmosphere, and the middle relates biosphere.
    In time, the chain links remote antiquity, now and future.

    I'm taking care of the board, while (In)Sanity is the producer. There is no 'home' of the forum. It's a stand-alone board with the aim of giving people an opportunity for scientific discussion and debate .

    Hello, my name is Drew Kelly. I am not new to the forum, but I have only ever posted once, and that was today. Before now, there has never been a reason to post. That gave birth to my name as that is what I have been doing. "Lurking"

    Thank you for the welcome. I guess I do have a wide variety of interests. I really just like to learn as much as I can. Never know when the knowledge will come in handy so better to have it than wishing that you did.

    I look forward to some good discussions and some debates in here. this forum looks like the exact place I need to be. 8)

    Hello, I am Algorithm. I have a growing thirst for science on a whole and when searching for a community in which to share my thoughts on the subject, I stumbled upon this place. My main interests lie in physics, chemistry, cosmology and astronomy. These four parts of science really intrigue me and I look forward to increasing my knowledge of each and everyone of them.

    Welcome to anyone who has not been welcomed yet. I use to make sure everyone was personally welcomed, lately I have to do group welcomes because of the rate of growth on the forum and my schedule.

    In any event, Welcome.

    hmm forgot to introduce myself..

    I'm a microbiologist (professional study) and i'm going to study physics (scientific)

    I know a great deal of facts, but far from all, i think this site is great to share knowledge.. because together we just might know all..
    Growing up, i marveled at star-trek's science, and ignored the perfect society. Now, i try to ignore their science, and marvel at the society.

    Imagine, being able to create matter out of thin air, and not coming up with using drones for boarding hostile ships. Or using drones to defend your own ship. Heck, using drones to block energy attacks, counterattack or for surveillance. Unless, of course, they are nano-machines in your blood, which is a billion times more complex..

    Well, it might be cool in Norway, but it's kind of boring in Finland. Lakes are dark and there's not much to see. Luckily there are some exceptions.
    And if you're affraid of deep water, don't make deep dives. Stay on shallow water. And the more you dive the less you fear. Diving is worth trying. There's a whole new world under water. And the feeling of zero gravity is just awsome! :-D

    Yea the zero-gravity sensation would be so awesome :-D It's probably like a slow version of real zero-g, because there's ofcourse more friction then normal.

    Btw I heard the North Sea can be a nice place to dive for shipwrecks. There have been lots of sea wars around here (including 4 wars between the english and the dutch 8) ) so that must've left a mark on the seabottom.

    Sure can :wink: I've always been affraid of water where I can't stand, dunno why. Sometimes you see those enormous swimming ponds for astronaut training, like 50 metres deep or so. Only looking at them gives me the shivers :P

    These can be avoided by the simple device of learning to talk like Donald Duck.

    It has nothing to do with solubility and compressibility ratios of nitrogen and helium.

    Decompression sickness is easily avoidable. In Open water diver - course you will learn how to avoid dangers in diving and if something happens, you will learn how to save your self or your divin partner. Never dive alone!
    If you dive within the time limits, and don´t get from the bottom to the surface too fast, you wont get it. And if you use Nitrox (some of the nitrogen is replaced with oxygen) or Trimix ( some of the oxygen and nitrogen are replaced with helium), the risk degreases. But to become a nitrox or trimix diver you have to go to the nitrox or trimix courses. Diving without a proper training is very dangerous.

    Hi, i'm Jacques. I'm interested in a lot of things. But mostly i'm interested in all those cool little theories which bring all the sciences together into one big happy family. Like Game Theory and Neuroscience.
    I also love gadgets and one of these days i fully intend to put some of my ideas for new ones into practice.

    Hi I'm Powell, I live in Manchester in England and I'm in my 2nd year at college studying Biology, Chemistry, Geology and Computing and I want to study biochemistry at University next year. I'm also interested in lots of other stuff like Immunology, Oncology and Astronomy.

    Decided to join this forum as I like talkin about any areas of science but mainly just to learn some interesting stuff as learning this way is so much easier than readin through text books.

    Hi,

    My name is Bettina and I'm a first year college student. I'm 18, studying to be a middle school teacher and have two hobbies. Cosmology and singing. I sing in church, parks, weddings, senior homes and other places. Mostly Charlotte church music... no rock. :wink:

    My favorite physicist was Albert Einstein and my favorite book was "The fabric of the Cosmos" by Brian Greene. I'm reading Lisa Randalls book now.

    Hi,

    My name's Lorenzo, I'm a friend of Matt Lacey's.

    I'm working in IT, have a degree in Civil Engineering from Imperial College, but want to get into computer programming (I'm currently undertaking a part-time undergrad degree in it, and have had many years experience in it previously). I have A-Levels in Physics, Maths and Further Maths.

    I have a healthy interest in science, maths, computing and all that sort of stuff!

    In my spare time I like watching Quentin Tarantino films, playing guitar and getting into long debates about the nature of infinity whether countable or uncountable with people on a guitar tablature site!!

    Hi all,

    I'm Daniel and I'm a high school student, amateur flautist/guitarist and a friend (sort of) of Matt. I have a somewhat average interest in maths, biology and geology as well as a growing fascination for music, but that's not directly attached to science, is it?

    Hi

    I'm Robbie, I'm 19 living in Dublin Ireland. I'm just starting off as a medical student in the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.

    I'm interested in all things medical, biological, chemical and environmental. I also love to read the odd physics thread although I doubt I'll ever have much to contribute!

    Ha! Fair enough, no internet and surgery!


    It's actually a number of things It's an undergraduate college for medicine pharmacy and physiotherapy but also does postgraduate programmes in surgery, radiology, anaesthetics dentistry and nursing. It's also does a bunch of ther stuff in the country that I'm not too sure on!

    If you want to know more about the college check out their website. www.rcsi.ie
