    Should Scientists have some Experience in Sports? Sports can teach of some knowledge of Intuition, while if it weren't so, the Person may be Confined in a world of X=y-z=h=m====yjfs. The Person may be 100% correct in his Experimental Exam, but could of just Felt or Intuitively Predicted the Outcome. A good Analogy of Both Successes would be in the world of Stuntmanship. The Stuntman would say, "Yes, I can do it . " But the Law says you have to Scientifically Calculate the Outcome. I don' t know much of the world myself so I cannot pretend what actually goes on in that World. But I am just stating the difference between Intuition and Analysation, and how they would do good to Combine and Match and one of the ways to know Intuitively is through Sports. There is just Just No-Way in My Opinion that a Person can Analytically master a fast-paced game. This may be old but overlooked.

    Should sportsmen be taught science?

    Sports can teach of some knowledge of Intuition
    What makes you think science doesn't involve intuition, or that scientists don't have it?
    What makes you think that the intuition involved in sports is relevant to science?

    while if it weren't so, the Person may be Confined in a world of X=y-z=h=m====yjfs.
    What?

    The Person may be 100% correct in his Experimental Exam, but could of just Felt or Intuitively Predicted the Outcome.
    Feeling or predicting an outcome is worthless in science.

    A good Analogy of Both Successes would be in the world of Stuntmanship. The Stuntman would say, "Yes, I can do it . " But the Law says you have to Scientifically Calculate the Outcome.
    What law says that?

    I don' t know much of the world myself
    Evidently.

    But I am just stating the difference between Intuition and Analysation, and how they would do good to Combine and Match
    And also making the false assumption that scientists don't have, or use, intuition.

    and one of the ways to know Intuitively is through Sports.
    Irrelevant.

    There is just Just No-Way in My Opinion that a Person can Analytically master a fast-paced game. This may be old but overlooked.
    Ho hum...

    Here's a little tip: sports is not science, science is not sports. Don't confuse the two.

    Lots of them do.

    Kary Mullis (inventor of the PCR) is a keen surfer. According to Wikipedia:
    Mullis has been described as an "impatient and impulsive researcher" who avoids lab work and instead thinks about research topics while driving and surfing
    Although he does have some ... odd ... views on things:
    Mullis writes of having once spoken to a glowing green raccoon. ... Mullis denies LSD having anything at all to do with this

    I played football, basketball, I love to snowboard and wakeboard, and I currently do amateur track days and run minis.

    Why do you think scientists DON'T participate in sports?

    For me, take out the track and the basketball. Played football in high school and Army. Started out as a skier, but changed over to the snowboard since I was already a skateboarder and I got tired of getting run over on the slopes.

    I only played basketball because I was 6'3 in 8th grade. I sucked at it.

    I love snowboarding, but I don't do so well with skis. I tried water skiing and almost ended up like the wishbone at Thanksgiving.
