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:

reproductive behavior
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.

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

My speciality is gambling. And dealing with gamblers. And conmen, and drunks, and fools. I am the perfect betting shop manager.

What about nothing, nothing seems good to me. It's hard though, my time seems to be taken up with other things, or maybe not. Does reading this count as nothing

Sure, :redface: only after site manager deletes the whole thread. Everything returns to nothing/zero
