  10. Sep 24, 2011 #9
    No, that's under the "I like the community" option.

    Where is the check box for "I found a flaw that disproves general relativity, and now I just need some help on the math part"?

    I'm studying abuses of the English language by the best and the brightest academics dedicated to the most exacting and rigorous standards. So far the results are very encouraging. In this day and age of cut backs I may have found a way to secure research grants for life...

    I voted 'other'. It's just become sort of a habit. I look at my email, I look at my Amazon account and maybe shop a bit, and I look at recent PF postings. There's always something in the postings at PF that I can learn from. Sometimes I happen on a thread that's of particular interest to me. Or that I want to learn about ... so I might elect to 'contribute' to the thread. Wrt to this particular thread, it's about 5AM here, and I'm not tired but I don't feel like getting into any of my various projects, or watching a movie, or a documentary, or the usual early morning TV stuff, or exercising, so PF is a nice diversion. That's about it I think.

    Pathetic strategy. I recommend a daily dosage of bar to get rid of it.
