Telekenesis. Just travel from A to B in a flash. How awesome would that be?!

Re: Fifa World Cup 2010

I don't know what to make of this final. It was undoubtedly ugly and brutal. Neither team played beautiful football that we have seen in previous games, perhaps because neither team had won the World Cup before and this could write history. Holland hacked their way through Spain but Spain dived a fe...

Re: Fifa World Cup 2010

Hmm, it's tough because I agree that there hasn't been a standout player this world cup. I guess Messi made it on to the list because although he did not score any goals he has been a real playmaker for Argentina. Without Messi, there wouldn't be goals for them.

Re: Fifa World Cup 2010

My Sky News app told me that Paul the octopus predicts a Germany win against Uruguay for third place and a Spain win against Holland... interesting. I want Uruguay to beat Germany and Spain to win the final. EDIT: link: http://news.sky.com/skynews/Home/World-News/World-Cup-Fans-Turn-To-Paul-The-Octo...

Re: [UK] Scotland - the home of Burns, Haggis and Heroin Add

I live in Edinburgh and I wouldn't mind a meetup... I've only joined for a couple of days and, er, I'm 17. I don't know how old you guys are but it would be awkward being with a lot of people who are smarter (and probably taller) than me. :|

Re: How much fast food do you eat?

Well, considering that my school is slapbang in the middle of Edinburgh, I'm surrounded by fast foods. However, I tend to go for the healthier options although once a week or once every two weeks I treat myself to fast food. To be honest, I don't like fast food that much because it puts me off if I ...

Re: REALLY Annoying Misconceptions

One of the most frequent misconceptions I hear which is equally very annoying is the fact that people think that all Muslims are vegetarian. No, we are not all vegetarian. Some choose to be vegetarian, yes, but others eat meat that has to be Halal or killed in a different way from other meat. I can ...

Re: How'd you come up with your username(s)?

I'm quite bad at picking usernames so I thought I'd just leave my creativity for you guys.

Re: INTRO THREAD THE THIRD

Hey guys, I've just established an interest in xkcd and the awesome comics. I'll be posting here quite a lot and I like the fact that this website is targeted for sciencey guys (I think, anyway).

Re: Fifa World Cup 2010

My team Argentina were knocked out anyway so I don't care who wins. What's more important to me is the fact that neither team has won the World Cup and neither team have played each other in any World Cup or Euro Cup... this will be an interesting game to say the least. I'm leaning towards Spain bec...

Re: Favorite Engineering branch?

Engineering is all about math and physics, especially mechanical. However, it sounds like with your interest in medicine, you might want to check out a biomedical engineering program. That major does require bio and chem, as well as physics (it's really a combination of mechanical, materials and el...

Re: Favorite Engineering branch?

I am quite interested in studying Engineering at university next year. It's my second choice after medicine so I have been scrutinising the disciplines of engineering. I like the idea of mechanical engineering but is maths or physics recommended for mechanical (or any engineering discipline)? I can'...
