haha, I got a perfect score, full points on every question. I guess that means I'll be getting the Nobel prize soon.

Um, 0, I suppose. Have you read the quiz? It's not like an intelligence test that everyone can just answer - you have to be ultra-special and have some ground-breaking new theory of physics for it to apply ;) I don't have such a thing, either because I'm an idiot, or because I realize physics is actually hard and new theories tend not to come from non-experts on internet forums.

:lol: good point. I was considering that, but I think you get -5 for starting, and I have yet to start. This quiz is not (as yet) applicable to me. I can only hope that when I do have some great new theory, my score will also be -5.

I didn't realise this site was solely for professionals.
That's a shame, because it would be nice to discuss some of the experiments I have done and continue to do.
I guess we amateurs have nothing to contribute, hmm, wasn't Clyde Tombaugh an amateur until he discovered Pluto? And Percival Lovell, his field was mathematics and geo-political science.

Many discoveries have been made by dedicated amateurs.
