WordyGrrl: dericwater: abfalter: Central Michigan University used to (and perhaps still does) teach two courses with whimsical names; Physics for Poets and Armchair Chemistry. Both were math-light 100 level courses on their respective topics.For 99% of the population, that's really all you need to know in regards to physics and chemistry. I mean, if you're not a chemist, why the heck do you need to know anything about the difference between an ionic bond and a covalent bond? Or the energy levels of electrons? Or what happens when atoms are squeezed into very, very tight conditions like in a star?There are plenty of reasons to know more than just the basic Three Rs. Sheer curiosity. To know when you're actually being sold snake oil or a budget proposal that's complete BS. The ability to intelligently argue a point on Fark. That's why a GED in with double majors in Law/Political Science is required for the Politics tab.

That's why a GED in with double majors in Law/Political Science is required for the Politics tab.And that's exactly where a math-lite version of physics and chemistry -- armchair physics/chemistry -- is perfect for. It's like watching episodes of NOVA or listening to a few TEDTalks. No need to do the heavy math pencil-on-paper number crunching, but get enough of the gist to understand basic laws of physics and chemistry. Took chemistry in freshmen year, got A, A, A- and physics sophomore year: A, A, A-. All towards my engineering degree.

vudukungfu: thorthor: Lady gaga has 300 cds? WTF?Yeah, I was equally surprised at how much total crap Phish was able to put on CDs.I should probably enroll in the Phish as a Counter Culture course.I'd have to bootleg the text books, of course.
