    Bristle brushes, dry mops, dual-disk waxing machines. Call me a renaissance man.

    Okay, I had a long-winded answer all typed out and decided that was way too much. So, I think I'll stick with a simpler answer: neuroendocrinology of reproduction and reproductive behavior. My interests are somewhat interdisciplinary, so no one field of biology can contain me. :biggrin:

    I have data for you :rofl:

    Sorry :shy:

    Nobody is as good as me to be discredited, but my other speciality is quarks. I like glue too. Nothing to do with reproduction, at first sight only. :biggrin:

    I think I have generalities. Here's my long-winded answer :

    I'm currently specializing in a small area within Condensed Matter (solid state) Physics, but I'm also into the following :

    Math, logic, crosswords ,brain teasers and puzzles

    Physical and political geography

    Ancient (and a little modern) history, history of math and science

    Trivia - science, math, music, history, some sports, others

    General Engineering - design, machining, physical (and some mechanical) metallurgy, some electrical (mostly in instrumentation, grounding, low noise measurement, etc.), casual interest in marine design (especially submarine design), vibrations isolation techniques, some hydraulic and HVAC design

    Chemistry - mostly physical and synthetic inorganic, a wee bit o' organic

    Materials Science - crystallography, characterization, worked with giant magnetoresistance, permanent magnet intermetallics, cuprate superconductors, some III-V compunds, etc.

    Other itty bitty bits.

    That probably would have been the simplest answer, but if I just said my specialty was sex, you might have had a whole different impression of me.

    In the words of Monty Python: Sex, sex...sex, sex, sex.

    That explains this:
    My main fields of interest are Mechanical Engineering, Astronomy (building telescopes is one of my hobbies), Computers, sound engineering (interested, but not very good), drama (acting, directing, script writing, set design, lighting design, puppetry), writing, art (painting, drawing, woodcarving, illustration) and music (guitar, piano, writing songs), general physics.

    For me all in the world are Fluid Mechanics, women, U2 songs, sleeping, eating, and sometimes studying for passing my exams!.

    Yup, u2 is my favourite band, my main interest is social sciences: philosophy, music, art, and archeology.
