Due to the enormous workload involved in physics classes combined with stress and lack of sleep, physics students often forget (either by accident, defense mechanism, or intentionally) what their major really is. Thus, as a physics major, I took it upon myself to create a small list of indicators to help us all remember what we really are. Tick your pick with [x] or words or whatever you like!
YOU MIGHT BE A PHYSICS MAJOR...
if you have no life - and you can PROVE it mathematically.
=> wrong! Exact reverse, i have a life and i can PROVE it mathematically
if you enjoy pain.
=> Masochist :D *evilgrin* It's better than slicing of precious body of yours :)
if you know vector calculus but you can't remember how to do long division.
=> Tsch... you know I hate long significant number
if you chuckle whenever anyone says 'centrifugal force.'
=> right again :)
if you've actually used every single function on your graphing calculator.
=> I don't have one, actually i don't really need it, I prefer to use Wolfram(R) Mathematica(C) or maybe matlab when studying computation
if when you look in a mirror, you see a physics major.
=> are you a psychic?
if it is sunny and 70 degrees outside, and you are working on a computer.
=> are you a psychic? (2)
if you always do homework on Friday and Saturday nights.
=> I don't care the name of the day, I'll done it whenever pleased
if you know how to integrate a chicken and can take the derivative of water.
=> maybe... Someday I'll try
if you think in 'math.'
=> It's one of my mothertongue y'nw XDDD
if you've calculated that the World Series actually diverges.
=>yes, intuitively, so don't waste your time on this ;)
if you hesitate to look at something because you don't want to break down its wave function.
=> are you a psychic? (3) and now I have to wait for Wave Lecture next semester
if you have a pet named after a scientist.
=> only famous politician fufufu and delicious foods *mmm*
if you laugh at jokes about mathematicians.
=> of course, that's why i laughed when i see it
if the Humane society has you arrested because you actually performed the Schrodinger's Cat experiment.
=> I've done it since I've been in elementary school, I feel really pity for the cat, DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME! SCHRODINGER STOP PLAYING WITH CATS, PHYSICSISTS SHOULDN'T HARM ANIMALS!
if you can't remember what's behind the door in the science building which says 'Exit.'
=> are you a psychic? (4) It's fun y'know
if you have to bring a jacket with you, in the middle of summer, because there's a wind-chill factor in the lab.
=> especially when dealing on cryogenic one(s) :)
if you are completely addicted to PhysLink.com.
=> are you a psychic?(5) Not really actually
if you avoid doing anything because you don't want to contribute to the eventual heat-death of the universe.
=> Nothing to worry about, It probably will takes a reallllllyyy looooooong time fufufu. Worry earth pollution!
if you consider ANY non-science course 'easy.'
=> are you a psychic? (Six, Oh My God) if any, not every
if when your professor asks you where your homework is, you claim to have accidentally determined its momentum so precisely, that according to Heisenberg it could be anywhere in the universe.
=> GREAT! I'll probably use it when I forgot to, thanks *lmao* Ah Heisenberg, you should be certain to yourself!
if the 'fun' center of your brain has deteriorated from lack of use.
=> No, because physics itself are 'fun' , see?
if you'll assume that a 'horse' is a 'sphere' in order to make the math easier.
=> I prefer to use 'chipmunks' or maybe a little of snow-like styrofoam in a glass sphere ;)
if you understood more than five of these indicators.
=> Almost all of it actually
if you make a hard copy of this list, and post it on your door.
=> I'll try
If these indicators apply to you, there is good reason to suspect that you might be classified as a physics major. I hope this clears up any confusion.
=> Of course, hopefully i'm certain from the start :)
Let us see How your physics are fufufufufu~ *geez I thought that this won't take too long, sigh*
