Hi, my name is Nathaniel. I've been a science fiction/fantasy fan for a very long time, and I enjoy imagining and speculating about scientific theories and possibilities. I have no professional background in mathematics or astrophysics (I can almost hear you crying "God! Not another one!" ). In fact, I have more experience juggling dice and playing tabletop RPGs, ha. Aside from an intuitive comprehension of statistical analysis, that wouldn't do me much good here. I joined this forum since I had a peculiar idea/concept that I'm not sure has been addressed, and was curious about peoples' insights into its feasibility/impracticality. I'll put forth my naive question in an appropriate thread rather than elaborating on it here. Depending on the activity and responses, and how interesting subjects in your forum is, I might stick around! In the meantime, I'll try to have some fun and hopefully not give you too many migraines.
