Started a replacement for Physics from scratch. Feel free to throw it in the next Mars probe that completely fails to land properly, but at least please give it some comments, suggestions, etc first—the usual deal— Sir MacMania GUN—[23:50 2 Aug 2010]
- Ooo! I wanna review this. But I'll do it later. 24 hours, give or take a timezone... and you shall hopefully get some coherent impressions. Although I'll say right now that it looks to be a vast improvement over the current physics. -- 20100809 - 15:00 (UTC)
|Humour:||8||Fizzy drinks are good... until they fizzle up one's nose. Which begs the question... might physics fizzle up someone's nose? Or perhaps it does it all the time and nobody notices...
Eh, not the point. Sections... since my overall impression seems to have wound up in the concept section...
|Concept:||8||I like how instead of how scientists are supposed to be the most rational people (though not necessarily sane), especially physicists who rely on mathematics so extensively, this takes the insanity and then changes the overly rational to irrational. Strangely, it's not a huge leap, which makes it even funnier.
And the all getting proven wrong is nice. Correct as things may be by current standards, everything else certainly has been proven wrong... I guess I'm just waiting for science to prove the tendency for science to be proven wrong wrong.
|Prose and formatting:||6||Yeah, so... you have too many commas. Some of them should be removed for improved grammartikal correctness and readibilirty. Also, when listing things, there need only be commas between the items not separated by the and. Putting one there too just looks silly.
In the Make further observations section, do you really mean peruse, or pursue? Could have easily been a typo, so...
Perform an experiment - the first sentence is grammatically ambiguous. While from the context it's apparent that it means to then immerse since it is hopeless, it tripped me up thinking it was just an expansion on the hopelessness at first...
In the scientific process section, it suddenly switches from third to second person as if the reader was actually following the process. Why would it be doing that? I thought the section was just to explain how unreasonable scientists and especially physicists are...
And really, contractions? That's mighty unprofessional. I'm excused here because this isn't an article, of course, but that is.
You sure say 'for instance' a lot. And 'in addition'...
Overall, though, the encyclopedic tone makes for a wonderful piece of utter and not entirely complete misinformation. I'd say complete, but there really is some reality to some of it. Scary...
Although... 'until it gets proven wrong'? Surely there could be a better word than 'gets'... seems too casual and unedumacated to me. Or was that intentional? I guess this really doesn't matter, since it's just personal taste, though.
|Images:||6||Well, the images themselves are nice enough. It's just the captions that bother me. Use of the first and second person doesn't really fit with the tone of the article, and why what does a vested interest in Einstein's hair have to do with anything? Especially since that is the only use of the first person in the entire article...
Perhaps I'm just missing something, but Newton's makes no sense, especially considering the link.
Yet the periodic table and the black hole one, those are just so perfect, captions and all... eh, I dunno.
|Final Score:||35||I would love to see this replace the current physics. It's a wonderful file of quasi-nonsense with just enough facts to it to... well, something. Hopefully this hastily cobbled-together-after-the-last-minute review will help, too...|
