Yep... ex-inmates are still traumatised.... yess...

Yes there is. Just most of the favourite color/food/music/fashion accessory/celebrity/reprint of Feynman Lectures/6 letter word stuff have disappeared over the years, as people began to realise they were in fact boring as hell.

What! Blasphemy! Break out the heretic burning kit, oh brothers!

Ok, admittedly some of physics is dull - and it is a travesty that this tends to be the bit that is repeated again and again and again in school, turning a fair percentage of people against physics.

But physics is interesting, really.

Look up at the stars - physics can tell us what is really out there, how everything began, and how we will end up - the entire future of mankind.

Look at yourself - physics explains the key mechanism behind your bodies, shows us what holds them together.

Look at your computer screen - that is the culmination of centuries of physical science, accelerating phenomenally.

Look at the world around you - it is all physics in action.

One can not avoid doing physics - existence is a physical action. What the study of physics is looking at what we, and everything else, has, is and will be doing.

What is more interesting than that?

(The burning at the stake thing is a joke. Zero, PLEASE put that petrol can down!)

That depends on the coefficient of friction of the dog's tongue.
