Sorry, but this is bugging me; and I'm not even sure if this was intentional or not.
A physician practices medicine.
A physicist is a scientist who specializes in Physics.


Oh man, you're sharp as a tack, Jester!

Please feel free to continue to correct by bad vocabularizations. I need all the help I can get in becoming a journeyman Mensan.

Thank you.


You are both wrong. A psychic specializes in physics.
I am unable to walk away from the mountain without climbing it. An unclimbed mountain tugs at my consciousness with the eternal weight of time itself. Until I've pressed my face into it's alpine winds, hugged it's ancient granite walls, and put it's weathered summit beneath my heal I'm unable to resist it's attraction.Knowing nature gives the mountain more time than she gives us adds urgency to the obsession. As has been said before; the mountain doesn't care.

It can wait forever. I cannot.

Umm... :-k

A psychic ( /ˈsaɪkɪk/; from the Greek ψυχικός psychikos—"of the mind, mental") is a person who claims to have an ability to perceive information hidden from the normal senses through extrasensory perception (ESP), or who is said by others to have such abilities.


A physicist is a scientist who does research in physics.

Oh, gee, you mean it will require effort and not be instantaneous?! :roll: North Maroon's trail was in the works for years, but wouldn't you say 1. it was worth it and 2. you're glad someone got the ball rolling?

Or do we wait until the trail is this wide? You don't have to be a physic to see that future coming! :wink:

I see what you're doing here. You knew that it wasn't a word, which is why you used it. Tricky.

Also what appears at first to be a typo is actually a cleverly disguised turn of phrase. (by, my)

Welcome to the list, MinerClimber. I wouldn't confuse 14er(.com) members nor 14er (hikers) with 14er (peaks). Hmm, mountain bike, mountain biker, 14er, 14erer? And if you climb on people who climb, 14ererer? :wink:
