Quiddle Me Vis

Well, I've got a ton of possibilities for my next "Big post" rolling around in my head, so I figured I'd leave it up to my readers which you wanted to see first. Here are a few suggestions, but feel free to come up with something else:

  • Another "Distilled Wisdom" post. I've got a couple in mind I could do, one in dealing with trolls, one in a particular arguing tactic.
  • "Why Atheism?" It worked for Skepticism.
  • Another "Quantum Mechanics for Dummies" post. I've got a particular subject in mind I could do (quantum uncertainty), but I'm open to other areas people would like to hear about.
  • On a similar vein, another explanatory science post trying to explain the four fundamental forces of nature. Gravity and E&M are pretty easy, but it took until just this year until anyone bothered giving me even a hint about how the nuclear forces worked, and it's possible others are wondering the same thing.
  • Pretty much any physics question you might have. If it's short enough, I might just answer it for ya in the comments.

*Any* physics question? Ok. I've always wondered how it is that the universe is saddle-shaped? Saddle-shaped? What's outside of the saddle? Ok, perhaps that's a cosmology question, but nonetheless, I'm just a molecular biologist, so I'm fantastically ignorant about anything that isn't alive...

Actually I'm going into Astrophysics for my masters, so that's one I can actually answer. Tomorrow. Tonight, sleep.

I'd like to see what you have to say about dealing with trolls. How about sock puppets, too?

I'm going to remember your offer about "any physics question" for a while, since I can't think of anything good right now.

As for a next-big-post, I'm quite curious about the four fundamental forces - I might or might not be able to name all four, and I know next to nothing about at least two of them and el zilcho about how they relate to each other.

The other offers also look good, so I'm looking forward to your next post, regardless.

Well, the "any" is a bit limited; I don't know much at all about atmospheric physics, for instance. But as it comes to Quantum Mechanics, Relativity, Particle Physics, and Astrophysics, chances are for any question you know enough to be able to ask, I'll know enough to be able to answer.

For right now, I'm going to try to get up "Physics Q&A" post pretty soon, time permitting, and then I'll go with the DW: Trolls soon afterwards.

Quantum Mechanics, Relativity, Particle Physics, and Astrophysics

OK, I should be able to think of something in that broad range. Lots to think about, anyways.
