    I'm sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong section, I'm new here, I'm Aimee and I'm 16...Well, geez...:redface: I feel so...young and uninformed. lol I'm just in High School and I am in an Astrophysics class and I'm going to take Physics next year and study Astronomy and Physics in College, but I feel so illiterate. Please don't shun me out, I just want to meet people who like Science just as much as I do and I look forward to meeting you. Is anyone in HighSchool or just beginning college here?? :smile:

    Welcome! You'll find lots of people in the same boat, so don't feel out of place. There are people from all walks of life who will be willing to answer questions, point you toward resources, etc. Don't be afraid to ask "Newbie" questions - those are the ones that need to be answered. It can be a little daunting to wander through the FAQs on every sub-forum on a site this big, and usually folks here are willing to chip in and point you toward relevant threads. Again, welcome!

    Welcome! PF is a community full of professionals and students alike. I felt the same way when I first showed up, but don't worry. PF is accepting of people from all different levels of education.

    Hope you enjoy your stay!

    Welcome to PF! And don't worry, people like you are the reason many of us are here. I hope you've found the Homework Help forums already, as it sounds like that's going to be something you'll want to use.

    Hmm...I don't think anyone has begun the fish-wacking initiation ceremony for you yet. *rummages around fridge* Ah, here we go...since you sound a little uncertain, we'll go easy on you. A nice fresh, Atlantic salmon should do the trick...

    *THWACK*

    (By the way, if you're planning on hanging around with us, the sisterhood here needs to know your shoe size. :biggrin:)

    What IS this with the shoe size? Would Kate Winslet not be admitted to the sisterhood because of her big feet, or would she perhaps relegated to that area of PF where big-boned girls are allowed? :uhh::wink:

    P.S. I was going to warn you about the fish but I didn't. Since MIH didn't thwack you I thought it might have been called off for new female members :tongue: Any way, don't mind the fish everybody gets it. :smile:

    To be fair, MJ is a chili-head and has been accepted into a sub-set of PF that treats hot foods as a region for exploration and exploitation. Chilies are COOL!!!

    With my current state of mind I have no ability to counter that argument.

    Should you deny this I would have to disown you and leave you wandering the wilderness alone. Deny the Dark Side of the force, MJ!

    I'm falling down on the job because I hab a bad cold. *ack ack* Pass the Nyquil, please. Some sniffling jerkface sat next to me in lecture Monday and decided to share his germs with me. I was able to relocate during the break, but the damage had already been done. We have about 320 students and 300 seats so we are packed like sardines.

    Anyway, I learned something new about "fish" today:

    from https://www.physicsforums.com/showpost.php?p=1479616&postcount=11

    I wonder if the origins are rooted in PF customs.
