Yeah, I've got a very interesting job, believe it or not. I work for a specialty explosives company that blow things up all around the world; buildings, bridges, you name it. My job is to make sure the vibrations from the blasts don't damage surrounding structures.

You've definitely got your head on your shoulders if you know these things by only taking one module of a physics class. I majored in physics in college, and it took me a very long time to understand what was going on! I'm getting ready to work on my PhD, and I still feel like I don't have a clue sometimes! But you know what they say, PhD just stands for "piled higher and deeper..."
