apparently I miss it too much. I only got a 77.5% on this general knowledge physics test.

I don't have to take it to know that you would both beat me. I therefore estimate that I got a 55.

At least that what the rules committee told me I got.

And wasn't there a thread with a similar test a year or two ago?

Wow, I sound like an old timer.

I'll appeal to the rules committee to get my grade upped to a 90. That's what I was due the whole time. No matter that my study habits weren't great or that my tutors sucked. It's the will of the people that I get a 90.

It was a mechanical aptitude test.

I don't like to think about it because I scored in the negative.

I totally support JP's initiative.

Given the 3 Laws of Science....
1. If it smells bad, It's Chemistry.
2. If it's mushy, It's Biology.
3. If it doesn't work, It's Physics.

Therefore, JP IS Physics and should receive 100%.

Of course, he is also Chemistry and Biology.

Somehow I'm not sensing a lot of takers on this quiz, Peter.

True. Every time you stub your toe, that's the pain is due to that nasty equal and opposite reaction thing.

The subject of this thread is "Re: I said I missed phyics, but"... looks like you missed either Typing or Spelling more.

90%.

Luckily, I got all the electrical ones correct. 3 of the 4 I got wrong were in "The Nature of Matter" section.

Physics was part of my downfall when I was originally a Molecular Biochemistry and Biophysics major in college. I liked chemistry a lot, perhaps even too much in college! That's how I ended up an Economics major in the end. ;\)

Fine, I'll brag.

95%.

I should say that for the past couple of years I've been studying the kinds of misconceptions people have about various scientific topics, especially the topic of "force" in physics.

So, I'm no physicist. But I know what people don't know!

They didn't have physics when I went to school, if it ain't broke don't fix it.

Hence my 45% - or maybe- "I got stoned and I missed it" after all it was the early 70's

Hey, we scored just about the same!!

Lots of those questions were way over my head. I never took physics, it should be obvious.

This makes me a perfect candidate to do special effects in movies. I love fight scenes that defy all laws of gravity.

Okay, I think I got my grumpy post out of the way today. . .
