Hello!
Nice to meet you all. I've been reading this nice web for a while, until I decide I want to be a little part of it. I'm an history teacher and researcher. I have to admit that, sadly, I've never been very good with physics. I suffer a phobia that, well, give me very hard time learning physics while I was in high school, though I find it fascinating. Nowadays I'm under treatment and I want to retake where I left it, if possible. First, I'm just gonna, you know, pick it up from here and there, until I feel confident with myself.

Thank you for making a very amusing and enjoyable place.

P.D. Sorry if my english wasn't correct.
