    Hello everyone!

    I have been navigating and reading the Physics Forums for a few months, and on a whim I have decided to register. I look forward to participating in many good discussions and debates. I am currently studying physics at the University of Texas at Austin.

    Here is an idea that I always try and apply to my education, and not just to birds:

    "You can know the name of a bird in all the languages of the world, but when you're finished, you'll know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird... So let's look at the bird and see what it's doing -- that's what counts. I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something."

    -Richard Feynman

    Somebody did their research, didn't they :biggrin: Very well:

    *slaps Haborix with a fine piece of salmon*

    Anyway, I'm sure you'll like PF very much!! And I'm sure we'll learn a lot from each other!

    The Feynman quote is very true by the way. I might set it as my new signature...

    I didn't get one, but I was told I needed to be in one.

    This thread makes me feel like people are watching me.

    I have to go away.

    For at least 10 hours.

    I'm glad to see the better moments of my life have made it into a comic strip.
