Granted physics was not my favorite science. In high school I learned nothing. The only reason any of us took physics in high school was because the teacher was really cute. He couldn't teach worth a damn though. In college I had to take physics as part of my major and I dreaded it. I made a deal with a friend who dreaded calculus just as much. I got him through calculus and he got me through physics. My answer to how planes fly is wishful thinking on the part of the passengers and pilot.
However, I'm not a stupid person either and generally if I try hard enough I can make some sense out of a lot of things that do not come naturally to me. I've read several news stories on the alleged discovery of the Higgs Boson Particle and today I listened to some guy on NPR attempting to explain it. Still, I have really no clue.
I'm starting to think it just a hoax on the part of physicists everywhere to see if they can get away with talking gibberish and get everyone to ooh and ahh over it.
In other news, I did my first speed workout today. I wasn't really in the mood to run or do anything. I fell into a weird funk somewhere along the way today. I have no clue why. Was almost crying on the way to the workout. While I admit I could have tried harder on the workout, I'm glad I did it and that 20 minutes of running (only 8 of it speedwork) and about an hour total with my wonderful whacky running buddies (we attempted some core work after) pulled me right out of the funk. I'm feeling much more positive now.
