    Greetings! I just joined this forum and wanted to introduce myself.

    I've been a physicist for over 20 years. now. My favorite areas of physics are relativity, cosmology, analytic mechanics, quantum mechanics, particle physics, the philosophy of physics and my personal favorite the foundations of physics.

    By the foundations of physics I have in mind a new organization that I just encountered the other day called the Foundational Questions Institute. It appears to be a highly respectable institute whose members include such names as Alan Guth and Sean Carroll. I quickly became interested in it since its an area of study that Iím very interested in.

    So howdy!

    Perhaps I'm missing a simple joke but I don't understand what this means. Sorry.

    Thank you. Except for a quirk shortly after I arrived, this place seems okay, so far.

    Phy, you will find attendance is not lean. In fact, so much is happening at all times, it is (for me) impossible to keep up, much less digest enough of it.

    Welcome! jocular

    That quirk would be me. Hot headed one.
    As it seems you're in the clear, I hope to treat you better in the future.

    Thank you Neverfly. It agree that those were a strange set of coincidences. In fact I'd hazard to guess that I might have done or said something similar myself under those circumstances. It's behind us no so on to bigger and better things.

    One might note that my interests are quite common since I've developed these interests over years from discussions with so many thousands of people on the internet. Therefore its only natural that my areas of interest are thus in common with many forum posters.

    (You're off obviously off my ignore list! )

    Better watch the table scraps, he's putting on weight and he's learning how to beg.

    And welcome to PhyMan. You should fit right in.
