If you didn't just pull that from memory, could you give me the source of where you got it?

Thank you ever so much,
m00se:)

We all learned at some point in our physics education about the famous physicist who, at the turn of last century, pronounced all the important physical laws to be known, and stated that only the chemistry was left to be done.

By Lord Kelvin (of all people)

This is the quote I was looking for, it ahs taken some time to find!

Sorry it took so long!
