@tsarstepan,
So... Absolutely no one recognizes this thread from the forum formerly known as Abuzz?

Did you mean that "foreword" spelling as a dig against Quayle's potato spelling gaffe? It is impossible that you wouldn't know that "forward" can't mean prefatory comments, so if that's your own typo I wonder what kind of urgency moved you to post what you thought might be a joke at Palin's expense.

@High Seas,
Just a typo - serendipitous dig at Quayle's spelling gaffe.

And is Palin a physicist? Hell, the book could be by Clinton. Or me, if you prefer. I'm no physicist, either.

@jespah,
She has a degree in communications; presumably some knowledge of physics is required to obtain one, but I can't make any representations on that.

I'm just appalled at the massive propaganda effort - not meaning you, I understand you just made a typo - mounted to discredit her. It reminds me of the "B-actor", "semi-literate" etc digs against Ronald Reagan. Personally if I saw 2 books by this title, one authored by Palin, one by Obama, I would buy hers.

@High Seas,
I hardly think a degree in Communications would mean anyone had taken Physics. It's generally not a specific science requirement (although anyone could take it of course. At least at BU, you had to take science classes if it wasn't the area for your major, but they could be in anything, e. g. Geology, etc.), whereas Freshman Comp or its equivalent is required pretty much anywhere for a degree.

We do, as a society, tend to pile onto politicians for gaffes that people make all the time and generally are harmless. It's not necessarily fair or correct.

@jespah,
You're probably right on all those points. You never came to a party at the school across the river from you, did you? If you had, you would know the thinking is reflected in the standard school drinking song and general cheer - after all those years I still remember the opening stanza by heart:
Quote:
E to the X du dx, E to the X dx!
Cosine! Secant! Tangent! Sine!
3 point 1 4 1 5 9!

Have a good day Smile

Ha, went to lots of 'em. I'm an old sorority gal. Don't recall the song, though, but I graduated 27 years ago.

Good day to you as well.
