#901 rayshud in Customization

Not sure if this is happening to anyone else but I can't "inspect" whatsoever, I crash the moment I try to finish my collector's recipe. I've tried validation, doesn't work so might be a small oversight on the HUD? Can anyone comfirm?

#64 Majors and jobs and stuffs in Off Topic
blazeitThanks. Yes, i will put more attention in calculus starting from now. I'm good in algebra and calculus based on my syllabus and grades. I watch a lot of MIT and KhanAcademy videos too. They are better than my teacher's lectures who is honestly not good. He confuses me more. I dont like chemistry, biology, too much to remember. I like organic which is slightly logical but inorganic is just a mess. Im sure im most interested in physics. Ill try reading research papers, i find them a bit tough to understand. Thanks man

Research papers are hard to get into at first for sure, I've been assigned to read one for one of my classes and I ended up reading like 12-14 to actually understand what's going on. Papers are sourced for a reason, and it's incredibly useful. You can skim over the math if you don't get it, I do it all the time since I don't have that intricate knowledge of math yet. If you can follow it, great! Do so, it gives an unmistakable way to interpret the data. And I didn't like biology at ALL until I took a class called "Intro to BioMedical Imaging" and it blew my mind. Now Biophysics is my true calling, and my research is all up in that! I read tons of biology and biochemistry to find out how the body works to better assist my research. You'd be surprised how you might love a subject you had never cared for if you look at it in the right context!

ShunI've known my fair share of physics majors at various college/universities and I totally agree with you. Physics at top engineering and liberal arts schools can be quite intense. I'm not sure what you'd get from a lower-ranked state school, especially since early Physics classics can be made either really easy or really hard.

There's a difference between thorough/rigorous and difficult. I've found most of the "difficult" physics classes from ivy leagues to just be very thorough and rigorous, which is really important. The difference between universities is mostly how much wiggle room they give you to REALLY know your stuff. I go to an "easier" university, we use the same books but aren't as thorough. It doesn't really matter where you go so long as you make sure you REALLY know your stuff.

blazeitOne more year to go to college, i want to be a physicist. Physics really interests me. Does anyone here know what it is to be a physicist?

Oh fantastic! I'm currently in my last year of physics (though I'm doing another year to finish a math double major after this one) and going to grad school for physics, hopefully going all the way to Ph.D. It's perfect for me since I want to do teaching, but I understand it isn't for everyone.

First things, gotta master calculus. I mean MASTER it as much as you can, go more in depth than your class might require because if it becomes second nature to you, it makes everything far more manageable. It doesn't matter if you're not a "math person," work hard at it and make sure you have a grasp on it. I don't consider myself especially great at math, but I'm diligent and do lots of practice in my off time which leads me to have a very strong grasp on the math required. And never stop learning math. My physics program lacks a lot of math that I think is essential, so I constantly check out books at my school's library (textbooks are amazing resources) to improve my knowledge of math and science. Lots of Ivy League schools have lots of lectures online, be sure to use those to your advantage. Another valuable resource is the science subreddits, though the ones I found most helpful are /r/askscience, /r/physics, /r/askphysics, /r/math, and /r/askmath. PhysicsForums is also wonderful to nudge you in the right direction without giving away the solution to problems. And talk to your professors. A lot. Even if you don't need help with the lessons, challenge yourself. Give yourself harder problems. Don't be okay with "trust me on this one" when it comes to proofs, try and figure out WHERE equations come from. Follow their logic, and it'll be so much simpler to deal with when you have problems come up.

Second, figure out all your school's resources they have available. I absolutely LOVELOVELOVE ScienceDirect, helps a ton to find lots of research papers. Speaking of which, learn how to read research papers. They're incredibly interesting to read. Also, get some research done with a professor. Figure out what branch of physics you wanna dip your feet into, though it might take a while for you to figure it out. For a long time, I thought mine was general relativity but I'm far happier doing research in biophysics than I ever was with GR.

Most importantly, don't confine yourself to physics. Learn chemistry, biology, philosophy, etc. It's really easy to focus entirely on your major especially if you're incredibly passionate about it, but you might find that a related field might interest you far more.

Feel free to add me if you have any questions. I don't really like helping with homeworks but I'll definitely answer any questions you might have about the physics field.

#7 need an EM physics mlg pro in Off Topic

So here I am studying my ass off for an Electrodynamics exam and I see this thread title and I'm like "oooh ooh my major is relevant for once! Hurrah!" Disappointment when I see how basic (and googleable) the question is.

Feel free to add me on Steam though. I'm a fourth year physics major with two years tutoring experience so I'm pretty sure I have a decent grasp on the subject.

#139 Emotional Experiences in Off Topic

I guess the most emotional experience for me right now is the bizarre feeling of experiencing the world without depression for the first time in over 5 or 6 years. It's overwhelming at times, but a good change nonetheless. It's been weeks now, and I feel I have a full range of emotions now. I can experience sadness and grief far more profoundly now than ever before, but I can also feel joy. I like it, but I hate that I can't really give any advice as to how to overcome it. It just kind of happened.

I'm sorry it's juxtapositioned so shittily but I guess I kinda had to share.

Shit, I think I may have developed a taste for trans girls over the past year.

Edit: probly should have clarified I dated a trans girl for a year before she broke up with me. SHITTY CONTEXTLESS JOKE

Biggest LAN in NA is QuakeCon early every August. But I don't think that'd count, we wouldn't be able to get a TF2 tourney going probably.

Not sure if you were aiming this at oov, but if you were my personal pet peeve is the fallacy fallacy.
