I would like help with pretending to be a scientist for fun?

Asked by talljasperman (18477 points ) October 14th, 2013

I will have to accept that I’m not going to pass grade 12 physics. So I would like to have fun anyway doing something sciencey. Is there an ebook or list of YouTube videos I can read/watch, to write science fiction novels, and slowly learn high school and beyond both math and physics.

Search for anything by Lawrence Krauss.

You could take up gardening.

Lots of biology and chemistry involved. And, if you become really good at it, you could open a nursery.

I know you’re always looking for a get rich at home scheme. One of my neighbours had his back yard designated a commercial nursery. So he only has to go in his back yard to go to work.

@ragingloli I am watching The Great Debate: THE STORYTELLING OF SCIENCE (OFFICIAL) – (Part ½) on YouTube and enjoying it…

Try the TED Talks. A lot of them are on scientific subjects but presented in a way that non-scientists can still enjoy and understand them. Lots of subjects there that might spark an idea for speculative fiction.
