I am always hungry for the latest discovery, or theory. I post some of the things I watch on here, but I don't wish to bore the group with endless science lectures and documentaries. who else is a science nerd, or a scientist in some cases. I am just a science nerd, with no phd.
I'm 69 and just got my Bachelor's degree. I'll start a Masters in Feb. I had gone to college some in 1966, but of course, all the textbooks today were written after 2010. I realized how out-of-touch people get during their regular adult lives. I'm having a blast!! I'm more into the social sciences, but I do love the science of how our universe even came to be.
Science is interesting but I only took classes in anatomy and physiology, some micro, human development, and an ap bio in high school of that counts. I’m not up to date on science, but if I catch wind of of somthing neat, I do look it up. I really liked your video earlier that laid to rest my suspicions of nothing being somthing.
No, I can hardly even keep pace with my own tiny sub-field of engineering. I wish I could but even if I did nothing but study all day (who would pay me to do that?) I still couldnt even keep pace.
Thanks to rss and feedly I can get a bunch of highlights for the day which is good enough.
I sure try to. I was delayed in my official education, but I've worked hard to always learn more, about everything I could.
So, when I did go back to school - it was a bit of a let-down. But, they wouldn't let me CLEP out (so to speak).
Now, I fall back to that Victorian ideal, where anyone (ok, it was 'gentlemen' back in the day, but that should always have been 'anyone' can embrace science, and learn from it.
I try to keep up with stuff that helps me understand human nature better, or stuff that might impact my future, or just really weird stuff like mixing spider DNA with goats to make goatmilk that has spiderwebs in it that are strong enough to use for micro-sutures.
