Slow down Spacecowboy! You forgot the SU bar!!! How much is a pint there before you rush into these things. :)


Yeah, the Student Union is the one place I didn't visit....

But it's a college town, so SOMEPLACE will offer 99-cent bottles (of domestic, of course, but it's still beer). And the blood drives absolutely love colleges. Students will stand in line for twenty minutes to get their blood drawn, because they found out a long time ago it's the easiest way to get drunk cheap.

While we are on the subject...

Can anyone tell me the difference between AE and Engineering Physics???

I'm not sure which of the two I would want to get into. What kinds of jobs do the two majors usually lead to? And which major has a better career outlook? I'll be very grateful for any information I can get! Thanks!


don't major in EP... Those EP people are weird and think they are better than AE.You'll see what I mean when you come to Riddle :wink:

Haha... I'd love to take a lot of the physics courses that the EP majors take, but I think I'm going to end up taking AE and some elective physics courses on the side just for the sake of wandering interests... Am I crazy?!?! Astrophysics as an elective?! Gotta love it ;)

Of course, us AE majors know we're better than the rest of 'em. Hell, the lazy bums ain't even gotta touch CFD, while we gotta model airflows in our sleep! 8)

Well, if you are, then so am I, 'cuz I've thought about doin' the same thing. Besides, we all know that Space Chicks Rock!

haha, fact. of course, you could major in EP and do CFD as an elective.... and true, all space chicks rock, there just aren't enough of them.

EDIT: my formula for finding percent of chicks who are space chicks- % of people interested in space * % of people interested in eng/phys/etc who are female * % of females 14<age< 25 * .5, just because.

Sorry for the lack of other space chicks boys ;) All the better for me right? :P I'm seriously considering buying that shirt lol.

heh, recruit all your friends to be 'space chicks'. i've tried to do that to some of my female friends, though unsuccessfully. i guess being interested in space can't be learned- it must be born into.

Attempted the same, with identical results.

Cathleen: buy the shirt. Then walk into the engineering department of any university or college. Within twenty minutes, you'll have at least one date, unless the department as a whole decides to take you out (which is almost as likely).

haha! 20 whole minutes? that's about 19 too many. if i ever saw a chick wearing that shirt who's the smallest bit attractive, i'd ask her out on the spot, lmao. in 20 minutes, she could have the whole engineering school drooling over her. except those people who like environmental engineering, that's just weird.

No argument: I was just giving an example of the worst-case scenario.

I've heard that they tend to get stuck up for the most part after being around so many guys for a year? Blegh if that's what you're talking about, don't worry. People like that drive me nuts lol.

i can imagine riddle girls get stuck up. what's the ratio? 20:1 or so?

btw, i vote we give cathleen mod status on some of the boards, i think you're the most dedicated member active now, given that sigurd is in the final production phase of his game and has no time for anything else.
