    That's a good one. I wonder if the judge was just like 'all right, whatever. Go away.'

    My wife once blew a stop sign, got a ticket and went to fight it. Her defense was that she did not know the route (had maps to show her usual route) and that there was a small school bus blocking the sign. Obvs it was not there when she went to take a pic, so she photo-shopped one in (obvious kid-like drawing).

    Judge had a good laugh and let her off, even the cop went along with it. Apparently the tension in the court had been high because the case before her was some abrasive guy w/ a lawyer trying to fight a no helmet ticket

    The one I grew up with went further - Physics before Newton (well DE's) was also merely stamp collecting

    We still have to reconcile all of the forces into one theory .
    Earth keeps dropping in space and we drop with it? I can turn unto a mad(read stupid) scuentist wjen I have had a few.

    There was no physics before Newton. So makes sense.

    "Nature and Nature's laws lay hid in night:
    God said, 'Let Newton be!'
    and all was light."

    Yes yes, we know you have that pic, but here's a challenge.

    Find another physicist with a life.

    That geologist probably scores heaps with that hat. Rugged outdoors man vs some gimp banging some pots. No questions need to be asked about the pot to human banging ratio there.

    Currently in my last year of school. Unsure of whether to go for a BS, a BS(Technology), or a BE next year, let alone going more specific than that. Any advice experienced fellow CWers have on the matter is much appreciated.

    EDIT: gonna hit it big as a rock star first obv, but I've gotta keep my options open.

    A BSc in what?

    Engineering has money, demand and a high dropout rate. It's a tough gig, though I suspect the buggers play the martyr a bit.
