By now, you’ve probably read about the change we’re making at SMBC Theater. If not, please go give it a look.
SMBC Theater has been a lot of fun and a lot of work. The one significant downside for me (what’s the opposite of a silver lining? Aqua Fortis lining?) was that I had to sigcut back on my sciencing. In the past week, I’ve some of that time back, and started to get back into things.
Unfortunately, I find a lot of my skills and knowledge are a bit rusty. And, since some of the earliest stuff was learned while I still didn’t even know derivatives, I’ve got a lot of gaps in my knowledge.
So, I’ve decided to set myself a challenge. I’m gonna start going through my old physics, math, and programming stuff, and build my nerd-brain from the ground up. To keep myself honest, and to keep you geeks entertained, I’ll be blogging each section as I go. I’ll try to explain the new concepts while keeping it fun and describing my person reactions, thoughts, insights, and filthy jokes.
That reminds me, did you know that my penis is a vector derivative? It has magnitude, erection, and instantaneous turgidity.
My goal is to procede from basic mechanics, simple programs, and calc 1 all the way to graduate level physics knowledge. It may take as long as five years or more, but it should be fun and enlightening.
That reminds me. Did you hear about the two lady quantum physicists and their male post-doc? They made him perform a double slit experiment.
I’ll be relying on you guys to correct me when I’m wrong, and keep me posting when I’m flakey. I’ll also be using Khan Academy to get me through tougher concepts, and perhaps even put up a few videos of my own. I hope you’ll all follow along, and perhaps join me in my autodidactic quest!
Here’s to geekdom!
