    I just wanna say hello to everyone here in the Physics Forums community heard that theres something about a fish and new people who join the forum..umm well does it hurt???? :tongue:

    i'm currently at this exact moment in the computer lab at the univeristy....i'd like to call it a mental institute
    :eek: OMG 2 minutes for class!!!!

    i'll tell u guys about it more later on (if ur interested) better start running for class..

    I'm new as well and I wanted to say hello, so I'll just post here instead of starting a new thread. Oh, and hello to FaNgS while I'm at it.

    Anyway, I'm doing the last year of school at the moment and should hopefully go to University this year to study physics. I can't wait. I unicycle and play the guitar.

    Keep it wheel.

    p.s. Could the fish initiation be connected with the Monty Python fish slapping dance in any way?

    Hello Fangs.

    Welcome to PF!

    To start a poll you simply start a thread, below the box where you are entering the text you will see "Post a poll", and a check box reading "Yes, post a poll with this thread", and asking you how many options you want for your poll.

    Have fun. :tongue:

    thanks everyone for this welcome and ouch! that really hurt... a little about myself well i'm a freshman in univeristy (INSTITUTE) and studying chemical engineering i did my AS and A-levels and IGCSE's during school (british international exams)(IGCSEs cambridge board and AS and A-levels are london board/edexcel) oh and btw i'm not british and dont live in the UK

    i'm currently in my 2nd semester of freshman year and i'm taking the following subjects Physics1, Organic Chemistry1, Calculus2, and Communication2 COMM for short...to tell u the truth i hate COMM and despise it but since "we are gonna be future engineers" (thats what my professors keep on saying and oh u know what it really pisses me off) we need this course to be successful engineers and communicate with clients and all that blabber..blah blah blah
    well u see i'm doing a research in my comm class with 4 other guys in a team and we're trying to find out how does ELV (end-of-life vehicles) or exhausted cars be managed as technical waste here in the city i live in so i just wanted some help from all u guys and see ur opinion about the topic and wanna see how much do the public know about this issue..u can say its some kind of survey poll.....i'm sorry if i've went off topic hmmm u know what this thread doesnt have a "topic".............come to think of it why do u call it a thread?....y do we keep assuming things in physics? is physics based on assumptions? when will i shut up??

    ok ok i will now lol :)

    Ooh, Moridin, I like the dancing welcome sign! We can use it to distract the new members while we sneak up on them with the fish. :biggrin:

    Welcome to PF Fangs! That sounds like an interesting topic for your communications course. Don't worry, once you get out in the working world and are surrounded by engineers, you'll understand better why some need a course in communication. :biggrin:

    *gazes endlessly at the welcome sign* i..i..can't...can't stop looking

    lol well i'll setup the poll later on (really hope i dont forget) when me and my team members decide what approach we're going to tackle :) and thanks for the welcome all :D

    It's heartwarming to see that the PF fish initiation is known worldwide. :approve:
