 The Big Bang Theory (2006- Present)is an American
 television show featuring the escapades of four
 scientifically brilliant but socially inept friends
 and their female friend who has more common sense
 then all four combined.  The Big Bang Theory uses
 geek culture to fuel comic situations involving comic
 book collecting, science-fiction trivia, and overall
 geeky social ineptitude.

 "The Big Bang Theory" is jokey and stupid yet smart
 and witty, and no character embodies all of that
 more than Sheldon.  Sheldon Cooper is narcissistic,
socially awkward, childish, hurtful, naive,
irascible, selfish, rude, and irrepressible.
He is also extremely popular with viewers
Drawing from DeviantArt.com
 and even lovable.  As "The Big Bang Theory" character
 has said, "This would be one of those circumstances
 that people unfamiliar with the law of large numbers
 would call a coincidence."

Subj:     A Party of Famous Physicists (S359b)
          From: rwtmpkns on 12/17/2003

 One day, all of the world's famous physicists decided to
 get together for a tea luncheon.  Fortunately, the doorman
 was a grad student, and able to observe some of the guests...

Everyone gravitated toward Newton, but he just kept
    moving around at a constant velocity and showed no reaction.
Einstein thought it was a relatively good time.
Coulomb got a real charge out of the whole thing.
Cavendish wasn't invited, but he had the balls
    to show up anyway.
Cauchy, being the only mathematician there, still managed
    to integrate well with everyone.
Thompson enjoyed the plum pudding.
Pauli came late, but was mostly excluded from things,
    so he split.
Pascal was under too much pressure to enjoy himself.
Ohm spent most of the time resisting Ampere's opinions
    on current events.
Hamilton went to the buffet tables exactly once.
Volt thought the social had a lot of potential.
Hilbert was pretty spaced out for most of it.
Heisenberg may or may not have been there.
The Curies were there and just glowed the whole time.
van der Waals forced himeself to mingle.
Wien radiated a colourful personality.
Millikan dropped his Italian oil dressing.
de Broglie mostly just stood in the corner and waved.
Hollerith liked the hole idea.
Stefan and Boltzman got into some hot debates.
Everyone was attracted to Tesla's magnetic personality.
Compton was a little scatter-brained at times.
Bohr ate too much and got atomic ache.
Watt turned out to be a powerful speaker.
Hertz went back to the buffet table several times a minute.
Faraday had quite a capacity for food.
Oppenheimer got bombed.

Subj:     Archimedes' Principle, A Physics Poem (S236)
          From: Science Jokes and From: bredmile
 Source: http://www.xs4all.nl/~jcdverha/scijokes/

 Came across this at school, early 1950s.  Funny how some
 things stick!

                        ARCHIMEDES' PRINCIPLE

 Students of physics are frequently told
 Of experiments performed by great physicists of old
 Like Boyles and Charles -- but greatest of these
 Was the Principle discovered by Archimedes.

 The Sicilian King, Archimedes was told,
 Ordered a crown from a large lump of gold,
 And though the weight of the gold was completely correct,
 The goldsmith's eye made the King suspect
 That he'd made up the weight with some cheaper metal
 And stolen some gold, that his debts he might settle.
 His problem was then of outstanding immensity
 As he had no idea, whatsoever, of density.

 Climbing into a bath he received a surprise
 When he noticed the water beginning to rise.
 He suddenly snapped, and let out a scream,
 As he realized, with joy, his long-wished-for dream.

 He found the up thrust, produced on a body's base*,
 To be equal in weight to the water displaced,
 And soon volumes and weights would make it quite plain
 What various metals the crown could contain,
 And so he could easily show to his Royalty
 The absolute proof of the goldsmith's disloyalty.

 Leaping out of the bath at remarkable rate,
 He made for the palace by doorway and gate --
 But the men in the street were completely confounded
 To see a naked man shout "Eureka!  I've found it!"

 * Is this the only error?  The up thrust is not on the
 base, but at the Center of Pressure.

Subj:     TED: Clifford Stroll's Amazing Talk (S768d)
          From: Wimp.com on 10/5/2011

 Clifford Stoll could talk about the atmosphere of Jupiter.
 Or hunting KGB hackers.  Or Klein bottles, computers in
 classrooms, the future.  But he's not going to.  Which is
 fine, because it would be criminal to confine a man with
 interests as multifarious as Stoll's to give a talk on
 any one topic.  Instead, he simply captivates his audience
 with a wildly energetic sprinkling of anecdotes, observations,
 asides -- and even a science experiment.  After all, by
 his own definition, he's a scientist: "Once I do something,
 I want to do something else."

Subj:     Are You A Physicist?
          From: OXyMoron Humour Archive on 07/01/97

 Due to the enormous workload involved in physics classes
 combined with stress and lack of sleep, physics students
 often forget (either by accident, defence mechanism, or
 intentionally) what their degree really is.  Thus, as
 a physics student, I took it upon myself to create a small
 list of indicators to help us all remember what we really

 You might be a Physics Student...

 if you have no life - and you can PROVE it mathematically.

 if you enjoy pain.

 if you know vector calculus but you can't remember
    how to do long division.

 if you chuckle whenever anyone says "centrifugal force."

 if you've actually used every single function
    on your graphing calculator.

 if when you look in a mirror, you see a physics student.

 if it is sunny and 70 degrees outside, and you are
    working on a computer.

 if you frequently whistle the theme song to "MacGyver."

 if you always do homework on Friday nights.

 if you know how to integrate a chicken and
    can take the derivative of water.

 if you think in "maths."

 if you've calculated that the World Series actually diverges.

 if you hesitate to look at something because
    you don't want to break down its wave function.

 if you have a pet named after a scientist.

 if you laugh at jokes about mathematicians.

 if the Humane Society has you arrested because you actually
    performed the Schrodinger's Cat experiment.

 if you can translate English into Binary.

 if you can't remember what's behind the door in the
    science building which says "Exit."

 if you have to bring a jacket with you, in the middle of
    summer, because there's a wind-chill factor in the lab.

 if you are completely addicted to caffeine.

 if you avoid doing anything because you don't want to
    contribute to the eventual heat-death of the universe.

 if you consider ANY non-science course "easy."

 if when your professor asks you where your homework is, you
    claim to have accidentally determined its momentum so
    precisely, that according to Heisenberg it could be
    anywhere in the universe.

 if the "fun" center of your brain has deteriorated
    from lack of use.

 if you'll assume that a "horse" is a "sphere"
    in order to make the maths easier.

 if you understood more than five of these indicators.

 if you make a hard copy of this list, and post it on your door.

 If these indicators apply to you, there is good reason to
    suspect that you might be a physics student.  I hope this
    clears up any confusion.

Subj:     Does Neil Tyson Think We Are Alone? (S730d)
          From: Wimp.com on 1/7/2011 (in Biology)
 Source: http://www.wimp.com/universealone/

 This seven minute video/lecture by Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson,
 host of Novascience Now, is one segment of a one hour,
 twenty-eight minute presentation called "Cosmic Quandaries
 with Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson" held at St. Petersburg College.

Subj:     Laws And Formulas

 Three Laws of Thermodynamics (paraphrased):

 First Law:  You can't get anything without working for it.
 Second Law: The most you can accomplish by work is to break even.
 Third Law:  You can't break even.

From: 74222.2372
 Ginsberg's Theorem (The modern statement of the three
 laws of thermodynamics)
 1. You can't win.
 2. You can't even break even.
 3. You can't get out of the game.

 The perversity of the universe tends towards a maximum.
 "Freeman's Commentary on Ginsberg's Theorem:
 "Every majoy philosophy that attempts to make life seem
     meaningful is based on the negation of one part
     of Ginsberg's Theorem.
 To wit:
 "1.  Capitalism is based on the assumption that
      you can win.
 "2.  Socialism  is based on the assumption that
      you can break even.
 "3.  Mysticism  is based on the assmuption that
      you can quit the game."

 What is "pi"?
 Mathematician: Pi is the number expressing the relationship
    between the circumference of a circle and its diameter.
 Physicist: Pi is 3.1415927 plus or minus 0.00000005
 Engineer: Pi is about 3.

Subj:     The Physicists' Bill of Rights
          Author Unknown
          From: American Physics Society
 Source: (Removed from aps.org/apsnews/articles)

 We hold these postulates to be intuitively obvious, that
 all physicists are born equal, to a first approximation,
 and are endowed by their creator with certain discrete
 privileges, among them a mean rest life, n degrees of
 freedom, and the following rights, which are invariant
 under all linear transformations:

 I. To approximate all problems to ideal cases.

 II. To use order of magnitude calculations whenever deemed
     necessary (i.e., whenever one can get away with it).

 III. To use the rigorous method of "squinting" for solving
     problems more complex than the additions of positive
     real integers.

 IV. To dismiss all functions which diverge as "nasty"
     and "unphysical".

 V. To invoke the uncertainty principle whenever confronted
    by confused mathematicians, chemists, engineers,
    psychologists, dramatists, and andere schweinhund.

 VI. To the extensive use of "bastard notations" where
    conventional mathematics will not work.

 VII. To justify shaky reasoning on the basis that it gives
    the right answer.

 VIII. To cleverly choose convenient initial conditions,
    using the principle of general triviality.

 IX. To use plausible arguments in place of proofs, and
    thenceforth refer to those arguments as proofs.

 X. To take on faith any principle which seems right
    but cannot be proved.

 Kilgore Trout: "The universe is a big place, perhaps the biggest."

 Ray Bradbury: "We are an impossibility in an impossible universe."

 Calvin and Hobbes (Bill Watterson): "The surest sign that
 intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that
 it has never tried to contact us."

 I had a professor who said that "physicists have a knack for

 From: dnichols

 We have learned that matter is weird stuff.  It is weird
 enough, so that it does not limit God's freedom to make
 it do what he pleases.  --  Dyson, Freeman J., Ch. 1,
 p. 8, _Infinite in All Directions: Gifford lectures given
 at Aberdeen, Scotland, April-November 1985_; edited by
 the author (Harper ? Row, New York, 1988).

 "Professor Goddard does not know the relation between action
 and reaction and the need to have something better than a
 vacuum against which to react.  He seems to lack the basic
 knowledge ladled out daily in high schools."  -- 1921 New
 York Times editorial about Robert Goddard's revolutionary
 rocket work.

 A theory is something nobody believes, except the person
 who made it.  An experiment is something everybody believes,
 except the person who made it.

 If it moves it is biology, if it stinks it is chemistry
 and if it does not work it is physics.

 D: It's because you keep changing time zones. See, if you

    flight, right?  So if you go at the speed of light, you
    gain MORE time, because it doesn't take as long to get
    there.  Of course, the theory of relativity only works

 Sir Isaac Newton was an ordained priest in the Church of England.

 Only 55% of all Americans know that the sun is a star.

 A 'jiffy' is an actual unit of time for 1/100th of a second.

 The little bags of netting for gas lanterns (called 'mantles')
 are radioactive--so much so that they will set off an alarm
 at a nuclear reactor.

 There once was a fellow named Blight
 Whose speed was much faster than light.
 He sat off one day
 In a relative way
 and returned on the previous night.

 We've heard of that fellow named Blight,
 And his trip on that fabulous night,
 But his increasing mass
 Would have soon proved so vast
 He'd have been a most *singular* sight!

 According to the late R. P. Feynman, an easy rule for telling
 which was is up is the following: point the index finger
 of your right hand in the direction of motion of the bus, and
 the thumb in the direction of motion of exiting passengers.
 The middle finger will point *up*.

 In Britain, use the left hand.

 The Stanford Linear Accelerator Center was known as SLAC,
 until the big earthquake, when it became known as SPLAC.
 SPLAC?  Stanford Piecewise Linear Accelerator.

 Historians have concluded that W.Heisenberg must have been
 contemplating his love life when he discovered the Uncertainty
 -When he had the time,he didn't have the energy and,
 -When the moment was right,he couldn't figure out the position...

 The Heineken Uncertainty Principle:
 You can never be sure how many beers you had last night.

 The high energy density variations of vacuum
 are mainly produced within brains.

 A physics joke:
 "Energy equals milk chocolate square"

 Entropy isn't what it used to be...

 Polymer physicists are into chains.

 Thomas Edison was afraid of the dark.

 Anything that won't sell, I don't want to invent.  Its
 sale is proof of utility and utility is success.

 Two atoms smashed into each other while travelling at high
 speed.  The first atom got up and said to the second atom.
 "Hey are you all right?"
 The second atom said "No I'm not.  I think I lost an electron!"
 The first atom said "Lost an electron?  Are you sure?"
 The second atom said "Yes, I'm positive."

 Protons have mass? I didn't even know they were Catholic.

 Q: What is more useful: the sun or the moon?
 A: The moon, because the moon shines at night when
    you want the light, whereas the sun shines
    during the day when you don't need it.

 Q: Why did the cat fall off the roof?
 A: Because he lost his mu.  (mew=sound cats make,
    mu=coeff of friction)
