I don't got out much due to a combination of anxiety, depression, and asperger's syndrome. And recently I've been having trouble sleeping with the result of me spending a lot more time posting on message boards; including some, such as this one, that I had otherwise more or less stopped posting on.
I think the topic is a little more justified than you give it credit for though. While the IgNobel Prizes themselves are pretty famous, the magazine that gives them out seems to be a lot less famous.
OK. I was just wondering, because one of the gradual and ongoing developments here over the last many years here is various people getting assorted degrees in science and posting miscellaneous articles from there.
I wasn't sure if you just don't read the board, or if you have memory issues, or what the deal is. It's a little weird to have someone who seems
to have been around for years to be like "HEY GUYS HAVE YOU EVER HEARD ABOUT [thing we've all talked about extensively from time to time]???" I think at least three people here have posted Electron Band Structure in Germanium, My Ass in the last year.
I guess if I were going to make one suggestion about posting here, it would be to try to learn who the other posting members are, and what their deal is. For example, who is Cain? What does he do? How about Twid? Why does LMNO seem to know a lot about quantum physics?
Knowing who the members of a board are and what they are doing with their lives can actually help save you from looking like an ass, and also may make you more socially appealing to everyone else.
