I'm into experimenting with Sodium metal and am closing in on a chemistry problem I am working on.

Be careful around water. Sodium metal and water react rather violently.

Physics, astronomy, fractal geometry, genetics/human anatomy, zoology, as well as some of the "soft" sciences. And I read and write sci fi. Yeah I'm a science geek. When my hyperlexia first presented between ages 3 and 4, some of the stuff I'd read were books on zoology and my dad's textbooks--he had a PhD in human anatomy and taught med students.

I love science. I am interested in biology, physics, neuroscience, and anything that involves graphs or visual data.

I'm a science geek, but I'm absolutely terrible with computers and math.

I am a physics graduate student. Also had a minor in math in undergraduate.

Got to love science. Understanding of science has to be the solution so solving global problems.

This brings me to a point though, does anybody else think the political system is flawed? We have people in power, apparently listening to the public, listening to corporate influence and what other nations politicians are saying. Many of the ideas and solutions they turn into reality / law are based on what a corporation may want or what a government thinks will make people happy. They often ignore the scientific evidence whilst making these decisions.

Should the people in society, who are making the critical decisions on how to advance, not be the leading scientists who are knowledgeable enough o know what the most effective solutions are?
