Who am I, anyway?

Hi! I hope you like physics, because you have stumbled into the deep and devious lairs of my physics blog! This blog consists of the ramblings, musings, and rants of a (hopefully) future physicist, with a few quotes thrown in for good measure. You don't have to know physics to read this blog, although some background might help in understanding it. Hope you don't mind putting up with my physics obsession!

Oh, wait. I was supposed to be talking about me, right? I'm a high-school student with - you guessed it - a physics obsession. You can call me CoolCat. I love the Standard Model and I REALLY love Relativity; I think quantum physics is philosophically unsound and will soon be superseded by a theory in which waves/particles/whatever have real, precise properties; I think entanglement/nonlocality is a real phenomenon, though without any mystical implications; I don't believe in string theory (future post topic!). About me outside of physics: I also like learning languages/linguistics, I'm homeschooled, and I am incredibly blessed to be a Christian and a child of God.

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the (quantum) weirdness!

(Oh, and if you don't get the title of the blog: "charm" and "strange" are the second-generation quarks in the Standard Model. You think those are odd names? The third-generation quarks are either "top" and "bottom" or - get this - "truth" and "beauty". Physicists have a bizarre sense of humor.)


  1. This is a great idea! I should have thought of this. I'll definitely be following along.
    (looking forward to anything about string theory, which I find fascinating but not credible in the least)

  2. Great blog, Jamie!
