I like Special Relativity, especially the concept of four-vectors and the energy-momentum four-vector, in particular, is what made me want to learn more physics.

In Quantum Mechanics, I think the theory of angular momentum is pretty special.
 
I do agree with you about the Angular momentum theory :). Sounds wicked cool .

I'll take classical mechanics every time, with E&M a close second.

OK, so this isn't meant as a criticism, but I'm curious to find out whenever I come across a question of this nature.

Person A is a chef, and he has tasted and cooked many different types of food, and created many different dishes using a variety of ingredients. With all of his experience, he considers foie gras to be his most favorite and luxurious food item and ingredients.

Now, Person A tells Person B about this foie gras, and regaled him on how good it is. Person B, who isn't a chef and not in the food or hospitality industry, has never eaten foie gras before, but based simply on hearing about it, Person B now considers it as his favorite food item.

So, in asking this question about "favorite topics in physics", which person above resembles your situation?

Foie gras is nasty. Then again, so is fluid mechanics. :wink:

Foie gras is made from the grotesquely enlarged livers of ducks and geese who have been cruelly force-fed.

And you don't think I know this?

It is also besides the point that I was trying to get across, which @Space_Girl seems to be ignoring.
