Interesting hobbies

I had male relative back home who I really loved.  His best hobbies? Reading thick high level books of chemistry and physics.  Woe to you if you visited and he had just read a particularly interesting (to him) topic.  He would tell you what it was about, the one who discovered whatever that thing was and any related dates.  I remember him looking into space while talking – it was as if he was alone.  That’s how lost he would be in the subjects he was reading.

We would always say what a shame it was that he never even completed school and life’s problems overtook his life early in life.  I can only imagine how far he could have gone had he had the opportunity to put his intelligence to use.  Maybe he didn’t miss much because was quite successful in business, but an education may have made him go further.

Maybe I should start reading physics for relaxation.  Yeah, right!

    Like Otto says, quantum physics is quite nice reading – definitely makes you ponder life’s secrets 🙂

    I can recommend quantum physics and relativity theory for nice, relaxing reading. 🙂
