It took me a few seconds get this. How about you?
Thank you! I am new to the site, but loving it already.About your previous post... I have seen Guardians of the Galaxy, too, and it is a great movie.Also, over the holidays I saw "The Theory of Everything". I wasn't sure about it at first, as they said it has more "chemistry" than astrophysics... but it turned out to be brilliant.
Ignacio welcome to the group.
I caught it for the first time, a week or two ago, myself. Very light on the story-line, and there were plot-holes like crazy, but it was fun enough that I can overlook those.
I loved Guardians of the Galaxy.
Anyone see any movies over the holidays?
I forgot to mention that I am also a brass (marchiing) band fan....all my HS friends were in the band (well, 3 of my best friends were majorettes), so I learned to play the bass drum so I could go to the games on the band bus.
I love hearing the bands in the Rose Parade, and get snotty when Bob Eubanks and Stephanie Edwards talk through/over the music. (Otherwise I like Stephanie Edwards a LOT; she and her husband adopted 2 cats from the Cat Hotel when I was working there, and sent photos of them as they grew into lovely felines. They are my Pumpkin's cousins.)
Meow! I also enjoy SF (and think that the Sci-Fi Channel's new name of "SyFy" accurately reflects its dumbing down).
Possibly of interest to some folks here: Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality -- what if Petunia married an Oxford biochemistry professor, and young Harry was a prodigy who grew up in a book-filled home learning science and reading SF... only to discover at age 11 that science's description of the universe was stunningly incomplete....

Welcome to the group sk8eycat. Glad to have you here.
I don't know exactly what kind of nerd I am, I just know I am one. I read SF ("sci-fi" is a dirty word!), fantasy, and some mysteries, love classical ballet, the way figure skating was before it became a jumping contest, and science.
Nick welcome to the group. So glad you are all here.
