I am just 21 years old and a university undergraduate and really don`t know what to do. Now I want an honest and ALLAH fearing partner overseas who I can transfer this money with his assistance and after the transaction I will come and reside permanently in your country. The death of my father brought sorrow to my life, Please I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance to get the money transfer into your account while i come over to meet you to continue my education,Please consider this and get back to me in my email( [email protected] )Thanks for your concern to help an orphan like me.

Great stuff.
When I was a nipper we used to go to the annual science lectures at the Royal Institution in London. One year Professor Eric Laithwaite did a series on gyroscopes and conservation of momentum. Schools were given tickets for children that expressed an interest in science, I was one of the lucky ones. This is TV footage for those interested:

Walter Lewin`s OCW classes are easily the best physics lessons available out there. I`m so glad MIT has made them freely and publicly available on the internet.
