Confession: I think stepping looks like so much fun, but it's mainly thought of as a "black thing" at least around here, and as a nerdy white girl, I'm afraid of being judged for my interest, by both races. (I'm too busy/lazy to do it anyway, but I still think it's awesome.)

Linguistics

Okay, it's a social science, but we use the scientific method of data analysis, so science it is. I know there are other linguists on this board, so I thought we might convene here and share our particular interests in the field.

Living on the 9th floor can provide some good opportunities for elevator stupidity.
