Because they are mostly physics. My only interest in physics is clasical
mechanics but it has been years since I did anything with it.

How nice for you. But I already knew you had read physics at the
university. I've known so many physicists through the years that I had
no problem at all placing you except for the outside chance you read
astronomy but you don't quite fit. Although, in the years I worked for
an observatory, it was a British astronomer that pissed me off the most.
I dumped him spectacularly and worked for an MIT PhD in physics for a
couple years bailing out before his hopelessly ineffective research got
his grant cut off. It's called "the scientific research game." It's fun
to play but there are bear traps everywhere.
