The problem being an atheist you cannot blame a deity for things...

Even though I handed in my thesis and started looking for a job, does not mean I believe anything will change, it just will be better paid which makes it easier to have short term fun. On the long run, it still does not make sense.

Having to learn for exams does not really put me into the best of moods. I have to fill my brain with stuff completely unrelated with my thesis, which I will immedeately forget after the exam. So completely useless... As you cannot fail the exam, I should have the cojones to just go there, tell the profs how useless it all is and that I preferr to spend my time drunk somewhere warm. But as usual, I don't have the cojones to do it and will play safe. And be frustrated.

This is post number 666 btw...

The good thing about being an atheist is that you're not limited to one God who you can't blame. You can equally well not blame any of these guys.

I've decided my exam wasn't a waste of my time. You could argue that it is a waste of money paying you to learn something that is of no benefit to your employer, but maybe you should enjoy it while you can.

Compared to some of the stuff I did in my PhD, learning some other things was quite useful. I can still explain why stars don't usually explode. I have forgotten most of the theoretical physics, though.

Don't worry, my good mood won't last forever.

Nilsinho,

alguma coisa gira para impressionar miúdas de letras (cenas sobre estrelas e átomos e a origem do universo, ou então sobre probabilidades) hás-de aprender a estudar para o exame. Não será tudo inútil, vais ver. ;)

»Oi, menina! Já sabias que uma estrela não explode porque a pressão termica e a força gravitational são iguais e annihilam-se? Posso mostrar-te as formulas...«

Não estou muito convencido que resulta...

Nils, não é assim!! É:

Já viste as estrelas? É fantástico pensar que não explodem porque há nelas duas forças contrárias que se anulam... Uma pequenina diferença e já não seria assim! O universo é mesmo fabuloso!

NUNCA mostrar fórmulas, e não ter demasidas preocupações com a correcção científica das explicações. ;)

Para os exames ensinaram me ao contrario... Este mundo e mesmo complicado ;-)
