    In terms of concepts, relativity. Part of the Modern Physics course I took last semester was on relativity, and it was... a struggle, to say the least. You have to adjust your way of thinking to accept things that seem completely counterintuitive at first. Even now, it's annoying to think about.
    In terms of work, the higher up the ladder you go, the more challenging (or rather, tedious) the math becomes. Calculus is a pain...

    Sorry if these have been asked before.
    • If you were to major in another branch of study which would you pick?
    • Do you like Calculus?
    • Are you from Yes or No?

    -I think this one's been asked before, but it's fine, I'll answer again. If I were to major in something else, I'd stick within the sciences, but I don't know which one specifically.
    -Does anyone like calculus? (Actually, I know a guy who does...) It's something I just have to deal with. I may not like it at times, but I deal with it nonetheless.
    -I'm from Maybe, actually.

    Do you like classic rock music? Some of it is really good.

    You basically answered your question for me. I enjoy some of it, but I'm more of an instrumental guy myself.

    ~ What sort of instrumental music do you like? (genre, I mean.)

    ~ Opinion on the Tim Burton movies?

    ~ How invested are you in LV's catcher system?

    -Orchestral and video game scores ate my go-to for instrumental music.

    -Haven't watched that many of them, but after doing a quick search of his works, they're all rather... quirky. I enjoyed the ones I watched, but they're not my favorite movies.

    -If something catches my attention while I'm browsing LV, I make the effort of catching it. I don't actively hunt a Pokémon I'm after.

    I like most of them, actually. Weavile and Gallade are ones I usually try to get on a team if I'm able. I like Froslass the least (though I still like it) because it's a bit limited in what it can do.

    -I'm not up to date on ships, nor do I particularly care for them, but that seems to be the most logical one...

    -That, sir, is a Quagsire.

    If I had to change my name to an element, I'd pick an outrageous one (like molybdenum or rutherfordium) just to spite the person.

    In terms of concepts, relativity, hands down. I answered this before, but I don't mind answering it again. In terms of work... At a certain level (2nd and 3rd year college for me), it all becomes tedious calculus and algebra.

    -I'm helping a professor run one of his labs, so I'm good enough, I guess.

    -Anything to do with the Universe at large fascinates me. Astrophysics as a whole is incredibly interesting.

    -This is actually a topic of debate. The existence of the present moment (the "Now") baffled even Einstein, and we're not really any closer to a solid conclusion. Long story short, we don't know.
