    New Member From England :)

    Hi,

    Just thought i would be polite and introduce myself,
    Am from North West England, and currently studying mechanical engineering at Manchester Met. University.

    I love working on my car (honda civic) and love building things, designing everything and anything.

    Sorry if any of my future posts lack punctuation, or i mis-spell words or just in general it doesn't read well or make sense. As i suffer from dyslexia, ADD and a mild form of autism, so please bare with me, i try my best and read over my posts before i post them, but i still often make simple errors.

    I've only just registered, and from what posts and topics i've managed to look though, it seems a very friendly and informative forum :)

    Thanks for reading.
    Tom.:biggrin:

    Don't worry about the rebels Tom, keep up with the secret plan of lulling them into a false sense of security by pretending that the Empire disbanded!

    And welcome to Physics Forums :smile:

    Wow thanks for the very warm reception :biggrin:

    Sorry for the late reply, ive been to Old Trafford, for Paul Scholes Testimonal, watched them beat New York Cosmos 6-0 at Football (NOT SOCCER) :tongue:

    And to answer, the very odd question
    To Eat: Tuna or Cod.
    In general: Salmon, as it strives endlessly to swim against the current, merely to mate and die.

    :rofl:

    Oh.. so is there's a few people on here that know MMU.. did/do you study here?

    Welcome Tom.
    I too am new here and agree this is an extremely informative and amenable place to visit. I am retired, no serious (completed college or university degrees) schooling but have always meant to dig into math and physics in greater depth when I retired. Although the title is Physics Forums as I explore this array of subjects covered, it is clear that this is becoming (or always was) a 'home' or 'safe place' for ideas, in general, to be explored in a sane rational way -i.e. no diatribe. I believe you, as I, will continue to feel comfortable here.
