    I'm seriously considering finishing up a degree in Physics.

    Think of all the fun I can have with gravity, time and lower coefficients of frictions.

    I lowered my friction coefficient yesterday, if you know what I mean, and I know that you do.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    How far do you have left to go and what kind of degree is it? As an experimental scientist (microbiologist), I've always been jealous of theoretical physicists for whom "research" involves sitting in their offices and thinking and then maybe scribbling some math **** on a dry erase board and then sitting and thinking some more. Wash, rinse, repeat. Always repeat. If only I'd made it past multivariable calc, I could have joined them, but the math got boring (or hard, not sure which), so I decided studying bacteria would be more fun.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    Professor Couch, Professor Mudkipz, Professor Incident, so many possibilities. You should do this, get on staff at some university and teach. You would make a good teacher. Inge could stay in your lab and bite you to entertain the students. You would wear a tweed jacket with leather patches on the elbows and smoke a pipe that was carved to look like a delicous bass.

    It was all undergrad work from many moons ago. To be honest, I would likely have to start all over again with Math classes and early Physics classes. This is all personal goal type stuff. I don't think I could ever successfully apply a degree like this in the real world.

    You can start by watching the Big Bang Theory and taking notes.

    They are both attractive. And they likely know how to form complete sentences in an understandable format.

    I, for one, would love to study the Theory of Couchian Relativity.

    My physic professor at Cleveland State was the same way. Jearl Walker was the most influential professor I had in College. All around neat guy.
