Why study physics?

I just came across a news article about how studying physics helped Elon Musk (founder of Pay Pal, SpaceX and Tesla Motors) approach problems from their fundamental principles.á

Something that stood out to me was how training himself to think this way took "quite a lot of mental exertion."á The take home message for me was that ability and competency are developed through hard work and time.á


Thoughts?

Fund Raising Ideas

So if we want to participate in the field trip to Magic Mountain, we need to do some fundraising!  Discuss possible ideas here folks.  So far we've talked about:

A car wash - standard sell tickets for a Saturday car wash kind of thing
A bowling night - rent out the bowling alley and sell tickets at a profit
Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream - get a few volunteers to man a booth at some sporting events?  Sell ice cream made on the spot.

Throw out some feedback on what you think would be best and/or what you would be willing to do.
