^ Maybe we read her post wrong and... this "Hamilton" was the guy that went with her to the store and
he said something about Chemistry ....
Alexander Hamilton? What's the significance of him being on wine?...
You say that about everyone anyways
But for real is there a rivalry between biology and chemistry majors at your university?
I mean I don't think we have that at mine, basically all science majors are in the same classes during 1st and 2 years then we all go our separate ways but we're all good friends. Actually many of my friends are in chemistry majors or bio pharmaceutical majors (which is more chemistry than biology) and there's no kind of rivalry. If i don't like my program, I'll probably switch and they'll do the same. The only people I consider weird are physics majors because most of them are.
Or was it that you did bad in a biology class and it's still haunting you which years later resulted in a hate against biology majors?
I also love wine.
The two being together is pretty awesome and it made me happy. The price wasn't the best. Definitely worth it though.
But no, there really isn't a rivalry here either. Chemistry and biology majors have very few classes together here. Biochemistry majors have much more in common, but there still isn't what I would call a 'rivalry'. I didn't even know any biology majors (maybe one or two) before this class. I've had more courses in common with engineers and physicists.
People minor in things they enjoy but that they couldn't choose as a program or just wouldn't for different reasons. There's also some people that take minors to compliment their majors.
And in biology, we actually need maths. I thought we wouldn't but in my microbiology/imunology, molecular/cellular, ecology, environmental classes, it was all about maths and biology but people tend to think that those two subjects are unrelated. Biologist need to use maths as well, believe it or not. In ecology as well and in many other biology related fields.
So in a way your mom was smart because minoring in maths probably helped her in many of her biology classes and in her career probably.
Also you just said that you met the most biology majors in your class and that they're all weird, man I've met many weird people on this planet but i can't generalize it to an entire subject. Shit happens, I've met weird people in every programs. Hell, everyone that isn't in a science program thinks of science students as weird people or are just too impressed by the fact that we're in a science branch when it's not really a big deal haha
But for real, I definitely don't hate any majors (even chemistry majors ), if you like your branch then go for it. Every science branches has proved to be useful for the progress of science, they've all helped each other in bringing science to where it is today.
I confess that the conversation is very off topic and I stopped caring.
Biology students are wacky here. They are competitive but incredibly social. Somehow they are able to consume entire pizzas while talking up a storm. I wonder how I'll be able to deal with them during my class in the Pacific...
Though I just got bitched at indirectly by a physics grad student who is angry that I'm working with a group of students to clean out one of the old offices. I guess that's why physics students are considered weird, or at least antisocial pricks.
