    Why are you here???

    Helloo! So I was wondering, since I'm new here, are all of you guys on here because you are studying some sort of science at college or is it because you really like science (just like me) or...? :) I'd like to make friends who really like Science just as much as me. :approve:

    Welcome to the forum ScienceGurl, you seem really excited about science, you've stumbled upon the best internet site for science help IMHO.

    We here, at area 51, don't acknowledge the existence of Area 51, and, since I can't be somewhere that doesn't exist, I am at PF.

    1) I come here to get help with my math and physics
    2) I come here to help others with their math and physics
    3) I come here to hang out with other people who like math and physics
    4) I come here to get information of pepper gardening and cooking with peppers
    5) I come here because I have nothing better to do

    This is one of the few places on the internet where incompetence, crackpottery, and txt mssging are not tolerated. lol!

    Even in this sometimes silly GD forum, we have high standards for discourse. Hence, the commonly recurring theme of "key penetration factor."

    Some of us are scientists by profession, and think it's a good idea to help out kids who are starting out learning science so that we'll have someone able to take over our attempts at world domination...erm...I mean bettering understanding of the world/universe we live in for the good of humanity ...when we are ready to retire. :biggrin:

    Then again, sometimes we just like to joke about terms like "penetration factor." :rofl:
