    Not sure who still remembers me 'round here. But i'm coming back. Its been a while i know, i know. But once school starts i'm gonna need lots of help, so i'll definetly be around. I'll be studying E&M physics on my own, so i'll definetly need help there. Plus i'm heading over to a local college to take calc 3 and multi var. Again, i'll be needing guidance. heh.

    Anyways. To recap whats happened since i've left you all, i now have a steady bf whom i love dearly. But no worries, my sex life has hardly died down :tongue2: I'll finally, actually be 17 in 3 months, so my sn will soon no longer be decieving. I've decided to get a degree in math, theoretical physics, and if i find time, i want to become and ordained minister. heh. I've decided to go to school in Cali, no i don't know where, nor do i care. Thats just where i want to spend my next 4 years. I got a 1460 on my SATs 800 math (no calculator thank you very much, i'm psyched) and 660 verbal (meh). Other than that, i'm the same gale that left you.

    Hope no one missed me too terribly, i'll be chattin' it up with you all again soon.

    Why are you hitting on a 16 year-old, Tigers? How old are you?

    Welcome back, Gale17!

    For those who don't know, Gale is singlehandedly responsible for starting more threads with questions about sex than any other member.

    She is also the person for whom "The Gale Effect" is named. "The Gale effect" is what happens when 37 male physicists try to answer the simple question of a cute girl with their most technical possible explanation, thinking it will impress her: she keeps repeating the question, they keep thinking she wants to be impressed with more impenetrably technical explanations. The thread grows to book length. The question is never answered.

    Hi Gale.

    I want to point out that the Gale Effect that Zooby described can be observed effecting male species other than physicists in nature as well.

    Note the effect on Tigers:


    He's right though, the picture is nice.

    Welcome back.

    Nice SAT score! :smile: Do all the students have to take SATs before going to college/uni? And wB!
  18. Jul 15, 2004 #17
    Most colleges require either SAT or ACT scores for the application. The exceptions are usually community colleges or weaker in-state schools.

    And that's a superb SAT score! Gale's apparently a smart one!
