What my college years were like
I just read- for fun- the stuff on this page
. Take a look; I'll wait.
Now think about what you just read, and then know this: I not only worked with the stuff in college, I liked it. A lot. And I still do.
My time-dependent Schrodinger Equation fu was second to none at one point. Yeah, I was a chick magnet back in college, if by chicks you mean mind-numbing loneliness and by magnet you mean black hole of despair.

There is hope for physicists... my fiancee works in Quantum Mechanics, which for me is kind of a chick magnet
... and I find the td Schrödinger equation awesome!!

Yeah, except what the page doesn't tell you is that a free particle wave function (written as a plane wave) cannot be normalized! After all, a free particle with definite energy E has a definite momentum and by the Heisenberg uncertainty principle has infinite spread in position. Gotta go with wave packets ...
Sorry, I just taught this in quantum and couldn't resist. Quantum is just too cool.

If you enjoyed this post, and you've got a woman in your life, hold onto her like grim death. Trust me on this.

Normally I get all things that are geek fu, but this is above me...
