Am I the only one feeling dumb and stupid here?!! :p

Since I've joined this forum yesterday I've overwhelmed by the amount of info here and I felt kinda dumb really :/
I don't know if it's because everything I was taught was in Arabic or because I'm dumb or maybe just because I'm a normal 18 year old guy among engineers and scientists
So am I alone here? :p

I was drinking, smoking and doing mischief when I was 18 and would have labelled all people in this forum just flatout Nerds.. typical I'd say. I think you're doing fantastic.

Welcome aboard

No worries, we share the same feelings. I'm not sure about your fish preference though.. So, what's your favorite fish, Abdul? :biggrin:

Don't listen to him Abdul, definitely not cooked fish, and preferably a large one.

Nothing wrong with it, it's the cooked part of it that's wrong. We need it.. Stiff. :biggrin:

I feel stupid because everyone here says calculus is vital to physics, and most of the physics I've done is trying my best to avoid using calculus.

Fish don't talk, so there is nothing to understand.

Not even the crackpots feel smart here- only the salmon. It got away.

Crackpots are RIGHT, not smart.

Ignore most of the forum - you'll find fairly rapidly that you can't keep up with the posting volume and you certainly can't understand the full range of topics under discussion (well - I can't...). Find the fora that are relevant to you (the ones you want to understand) and stick to them.

If you can handle even only a fraction of this forum in a language that isn't your first one, you aren't dumb. I'm barely qualified to tend bar in my second language.

Calculus is vital to understanding physics and it makes introductory physics much simpler but you don't, NEED calculus for entry level physics.

Well thanks and I think one of the reasons behind feeling dumb is because I jumped straight to aerosce engineering

Well I remember needing calculus while studying highschool physics
I'm pretty sure it's a common feeling.

Thanks and I will once I'm enlightened by the definition of fish here

Lol thanks I'll probably be strange like you soon :tongue:
:devil:FISH! FISH! FISH! FISH!
Now you're just making me hungry
It's OK I feel dumb all the time, too many big words! Lol
You got that part right...
Assuming that by fish you mean subject then my favourite fish is math specially geometry,if you mean by fish what is my favourite forum here then I'm still
looking into them but I'm interested in aeronautics

A fish is any member of a paraphyletic group of organisms that consist of all gill-bearing aquatic craniate animals that lack limbs with digits.
So what's your favourite fish?.....
For Example: Behold The Megalodon
Megalodon+Shark3.jpg

the Porcupine Fish
porcupinefish.jpg

the Blob Fish
blobfish-pic-caters-771402167-197211.jpg

Or The Fangtooth

Now come on don't keep us waiting...

I lost you at " paraphyletic" and then I tried to understand the rest but still couldn't so I decided to choose my fish based on a very advanced and sophisticated system
Which one is the best looking? :p
So I'll go with the shark for now

You must suffer in suspense for a while, until an authorized judge here at PF determines what sentence you will be given, according to your stated fish preference ..
