    Playing with lasers was fun (note the lack of 'z', American dog). Energetics, not so much..... Removing the maths made it more dull if anything.

    Love it. The dream is to study other planets, or study volcanoes here on earth.

    Alpine or coastal environments looking a lot more likely if I don't get into postgrad though.

    EDIT: You lucky ****.

    EDIT 2: Astronomy is different to planetary geology I know, but I still love astronomy.

    You should totally think about that as a career choice tbh.

    You would of course need a PhD though to find a position.

    Haha, I'm going to try. Basically staying in uni for as long as I can before I'm in over my head.

    Hoping for at least Honours.

    Question: When dropped from 1 foot off the ground, will the cat/ bread arrangement land:
    a. cat first, on it's feet?
    b. bread first, buttered side down?
    c. will not land at all, but get 6 inches off the ground and begin spontaneously spinning around, defying gravity?
    Bonus point: give reasons for your conclusion.
    Loving this gem.

    not EM

    its basically fundamentals of electrical and electronics engineering

    concentrates on circuits mostly and their principles of the elements involved in them like

    R-LC circuit etc etc
