for such a simple site
 
user246160
"simple site"
 
Mew
indeed
 
user246160
ROFL
 
Mew
I mean we only have 1 developer on physics.qandaexchange.com
3

@Mew Are you seriously comparing them ? Stack Overflow is a million dollar company without 1000s of questions per day
 
Mew
1:12 PM
@TheStackExchange na just playing around lol
@ACuriousMind may you please refresh may by display pic
ty
 
Mods even have such powers?
 
Mew
guess so
 
We can click a button that forces all the cached information on the chat profile to be refreshed, yes
 
Mew
thanks @ACuriousMind
 
I'm not entirely sure why it's there, but it's there
 
1:16 PM
Wow, great to have power for power of mind.
 
what?
 
Mew
@SwapnilDas wat do u mean?
 
Oh, perhaps no one could understand my poetry.
 
Mew
lol
I didn't realize it was poetry
but now that I do, not bad
 
Mods have power of minds, I.e., the intelligence in the field of physics. This makes them a good candidate for being a mod. So they even have mod powers.
 
Mew
1:19 PM
i see
 
Power for power of mind.
 
Mew
i iniitially thought you mneant power brings power of mind
 
No lol.
 
@SwapnilDas Mods are elected, and being good at the site's topic may help with that, but you shouldn't think that the mods are necessarily the most competent users on a site.
 
Mew
^agreed
 
1:21 PM
@ACuriousMind Poetry isn't as rigorous as mathematical physics ;P
 
Mew
physics is the universes poetry
^ that sentence is poetry btw
 
Mew
1:42 PM
hi @heather
 
hello @Mew
 
Mew
how is learning going?
did you order any physics texts?
@SwapnilDas did you know 80% of nitrogen in the body went through the Haber-Bosche process?
 
I needed to Google.
 
Mew
it's a process that allows ammonia to be created from the nitrogen in the air
 
Actually I'm a backbench 10th grader who knows only physics n math, nothing else.
 
Mew
1:50 PM
it is what allowed the human population to skyrocket
 
my mom's making me wait till Christmas
 
You know a lot.
 
so for now, i'm googling like a fiend
 
@heather which texts?
 
Mew
@SwapnilDas yes I'm curious about many things
@heather yes I think one can find everything on the internet
textbooks just provide structure
 
1:51 PM
Howdy
 
Mew
and questions!
 
@SwapnilDas, well, for instance, I'd like to acquire Kleppner and Kolenkow, Apostol's Vol. II (multivariable calculus), Shankar.
 
Mew
practice questions are the important thing you don't usually get from the net
 
^yes
 
That's nice. I mostly try to understand nature in mathematical literature, through physical laws.
 
1:52 PM
@heather Apostol costs so much, it almost gave me a heart attack
I understand nature through asking Daniel what the hell is going on
 
How do you justify the quasi-classical wave function expression $\psi = A e^{i S / \hbar}$?
 
@BernardMeurer Same!
 
@BernardMeurer, i got the first volume used...it wasn't too bad, only $20-ish
 
Damn, that's a good price
I recently got an AWESOME book
 
I thought of a cool way, but still, the books do some ridiculous things
 
1:53 PM
waiting for it to get here
It'll do me well for the Collatz and Brocard projects
 
@heather all good books
 
Mew
@heather have you heard of library genises?
 
@Mew, no, I can't say I have...what's a genis?
 
@heather Did you check the new folder on the books folder?
 
Mew
1:54 PM
genesis*
 
The best physics book ic is Indian, it has made me solve irodov flexibly.
 
Mew
it has 90% of academic books available to download
 
@heather It's a place to download books
illegally of course
 
Mew
virus free
 
genesis, like beginning, @Mew?
 
Mew
1:54 PM
yep
 
oh
 
Mew
I can't recommend it though as it may be illegal
but I have provided the link for academic purposes only
 
It is very much illegal
 
Mew
but she's a minor
 
You people can solve IPhO problems?
 
1:56 PM
Yeah, so we get her parents in trouble, good idea man :)
 
Mew
na she doesn't know what she's doing she just clicks random buttons
she can't be held accountable for that
 
wait, it's that illegal? Like people-come-after-you illegal?
 
Mew
@heather no but downloading any copyright content is technically illegal
 
@heather You're in the US, they take copyright seriously
 
oh, phew
haven't downloaded anything
 
1:57 PM
@heather Do you know how to use encrypted email?
 
Mew
@heather but my very close friend has downloaded stuff there and never had an issue
 
@Mew You're American right?
 
Mew
@SwapnilDas no Aussie
 
Oh!
Guys have a look^^
 
@BernardMeurer, never heard of encrypted email, sounds cool
 
Mew
1:58 PM
@SwapnilDas looks like a virus
 
i'll go check the book folder
 
@heather Let me find you a guide, it's a useful tool
 
@Mew Umm.. No?
