Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
As a result of my reading, when I took physics in high school I did really lousy with the first half of the book, which dealt with mechanics. The second semester was on nuclear, and I went from a D to an A+. Likewise in analytic geometery, when we got to things like points on an ellipse I did very well -- because it was related to planetary orbits.

Drove the teachers crazy!
