Hello Physics Class!


The Physicists' Bill of Rights

  • To approximate all problems to ideal causes.
  • To use order of magnitude calculations whenever deemed necessary (i.e. whenever one can get away with it)
  • The rigorous method of "squinting" for solving problems more complex than the addition of positive real integers.
  • To invoke the uncertainty principle when confronted by confused mathematicians, chemists, engineers, psychologists, and dramatists.
  • When pressed by non-physicists for an explanation of above to mumble in a sneering tone of voice something about physically naive mathematicians.
  • To equate two sides of an equation which are dimensionally inconsistent, with a suitable comment to the effect of, "Well, we are interested in the order of magnitude anyway."
  • The extensive use of "moronic notations" where conventional mathematics will not work.
  • To invent fictitious forces to delude the general public.
  • To justify shaky reasoning on the basis that it gives the right answer.
  • To cleverly choose convenient initial conditions, using the principle of general triviality.
  • To use plausible arguments in place of proofs, and thenceforth refer to these arguments as proofs.
  • To take on faith of any principle which seems right but cannot be proved.

Let's get our Physics on.
