    So what lengths would you go to, to achieve winning a "Nobel" In Physics. (Current est values @ ~900,000$ US)

    I wouldn't cheat or do anything immoral to win it because i wouldnt want something that important without having earned it from hard honest graft!

    The only motivation behind doing sometihng like that, for me anyway, is to know i've done something amazing, rather than made up data points!

    Tell the truth. The prize is meaningless.

    I guess I'll have to borrow your brain. Can we arrange a swap meet?

  17. Jul 13, 2003 #16
    Why would you trade? You have the capacity to understand, if you believe you do not it is only because you just don't know it yet.

    i would lie/cheat/steal in alot of things i didnt care about, but a nobel prize would be something i would want to earn...
  19. Jul 14, 2003 #18
    A good point, nothing needs be traded, other then the "Winning explanation".

    In the end, all can share in that, as all are capable of learning it.
