Welcome to PF, Yann. I envy your diving abilitiy; I always wanted to take up SCUBA, because it's so peaceful and beautiful down there (well, not Lake Erie :surprised ). Unfortunately, my medical conditions precluded that.
You're right about the skills aspect. There are world-class experts on just about any scientific subject right here, and they're more than happy to help you learn anything that you want to know about. I am not one of them, but I seem to have a peculiar talent for thinking so far out of the box that it's not even in the same warehouse. Upon rare occassions, that has proven useful, so I might possibly be of service to you in the future.

"Scientific skills"? I am crushed, I tell you, just absolutely crushed. I had assumed he was referring to my penchant for sarcasm. It is not a skill that has come to me without great effort.

I suppose, though, this is supposed to be science forum, after all.

Well, that's so obvious that I didn't see any reason to bother mentioning it. If Elton John was on here, I wouldn't say 'Oh, we have a singer too'.

Perhaps it is your scientific approach to sarcasm - the precision of content and execution. :biggrin:

What's amazing is how warm a welcome this spambot is getting. I saw it post the same message on a different forum I browse.

Absolutely. It's my minor. :cool:
The courses are challenging because you never quite know when the professors are being serious - as they are experts in sarcasm, you know.

I'll never forget my Sarcastic Methods and Design midterm. The time allotted for the test was up and the student next to me asked the teacher if she could just finish her last answer. He said, "Sure, take all the time you want. We've all got nothing better to do than wait for you." Completely missing his sarcasm, she continued writing. He snatched her paper and gave her an A on the spot, and then cruelly scratched it out with a "oh, whoops!" and gave her an F. It was truly heartbreaking. Such a brutal, brutal class.
