This is only a partial list. It will grow and I will give it links in due time. Any suggestions?

Nuclear Physics is pretty fun, if you don't get too much into the math and go more into the theory.

WWII... good stuff, alot of information.. And when has war ever gone wrong for reading?

Religious histroy and theory. Not just christian or anything, but the weird pagan and egyption stuff, and even judism and Christians. Evenif you have no belief in a higher being, its always fun.

Thats just what I think.... and the necronomicon is a good one.

Any information is good. i love to learn, and I dont really care what it is about. I really will not not read anything. If it has information to offer me, I'm gonna read it. I am going to add some more and organize it somewhat after I eat lunch.

I would scrap music theory, as I have to do it after school, and it is the easiest thing to do, my last lesson involved learning this rhyme:

Father
Charles
Goes
Down
And
Ends
Battle

Than you go up a semi tone for the scale, so...
F - G
C - D
G - A
D - E
A - B
E - F
B - C

Now for the Flat Major key signitures
Battle
Ends
And
Down
Goes
Charles
Father

B - F
E - B (flat)
A - B (flat)
D - E (flat)
G - A (flat)
C - D (flat)
F - G (flat)

To get to the equiverlent minor go down 4 semi tones (incl. the one you start on)

-----------------------------------------


For a sugestion to add, how about a CCNA coruse, as we need more networking people. Any programming is a good thing to learn. Reading a book is good too.

For someone who dosent know about music theory, what you just stated would be absolutely mind boggling. You should have more of an idiots guide for that.

What I think more should be here is individual articles, talking about one thing (like I statred in the fist post). Post a link from howstuffworks.com. This is for people with short attention spans, and need instant gratification. :)

Haha howstuffworks is the best thing ever. I go on that site and can spend all day reading and reading and reading.

As for nuclear physics, the mathematical side is just as intriguing as the theory.

I dont care what anyone says, Mathematics is great. I love math! I am so horribly bad at it, but it interests the hell out of me.

Sorry, I just hate math. The simply stuff is interesting (The equations for explosive yielld, critical mass, radioactive decay), but theres no way I'd try applying them, or even remember them.

Oh, read up on the Manhatten Project specifically. Interesting stuff.
