Are you going to change your course of studies to include the sciences?

That would have been my first guess; the alternative would be that the appearance of science_gal or science_doll on the board and no further posts from science_guy

I can in no way take what he said to mean a change of name or otherwise, the comment seemed to me to be in direct reference to his having no science background !

 Anyways, good luck  Science _guy and what are you fixing to take . Have you decided what classes?

MSc Environmental Forestry, doing PhD in Forest Growth and Yield. Only started this in 2001 as a second career - changed life, changed country, changed outlook! Science is so full of opportunity - I don't think this message gets through at school level.

oh! forgot to reply.

well my answer is that I am indeed not changing my male status.

I am already taking science classes, but Im just in high school, and have not had the opportunity to have a science background as of yet.

And that is indeed what I thought you meant! Thanks for the reply! I did not even think your comment even hinted at changing your male status! LOL

BTW it is very good to see you science guy!

By the way I am a preschool teacher with this being the only science background I have as It did not interest me as a child, but it does as a adult! I understand it better now then before!

Founder of Neo-liberalism! and Egonomics!

Background is social science! Sociology! and the university of life!

What is neoliberalism? A programme for destroying collective structures which may impede the pure market logic. Not that type of neo liberalism, that really is free market neo liberalism!

The above mentioned neo-liberalism, is actually quite horrid!
My neo liberalism, deals with society, government, law and not the markeet!

A quick google seach of neo-liberalism shows that there is a difference between both of the terms, but both have to do with the "markeet".

Yeah my point being that mine doesnt! Or at least in my neo-liberlism the market is under the control of politics and not the other way around! As the market will always act in self interest, which is not an inherent good!

My neo-liberlism represents is a completly different form of society, as a result!

Equivalent to BS degree in chemical engineering.  Nearly 30 years of experience in application research (mainly on binders - hence familiarity with many technologies) plus a bit of experience with computers.

Didn't have the option to go to university - which is probably a good thing knowing my disposition... this way I never got fed up with anything and now am still interested in everything.

I'm forever catching up on as many fronts as possible... [;D] and my daughter keeps me on my toes too

Engineering background, Fabricator welder, mechanical engineer, inventor, medical researcher. Always been a scientist and always will be. Born In the Blackcountry and proud of it, though now a refugee in Paignton living by the seaside :) Lateral thinker by nature who loves to explore the bigger picture by standing back and re-evaluating the whole subject from the established facts, rather than accepting someone else's interpretations of the facts as fact! Comprehensive education though they failed miserably to stop me thinking.
Science is continually evolving. Nothing is set in stone. Question everything and everyone. Always consider vested interests as a reason for miss-direction. But most of all explore and find answers that you are comfortable with
