I thought uni was going to be a place where great minds come to be free from limits, where smart people did crazy stuff and blew things up or created amazing things just for the hell of it. Is there such a university on this Earth that has that? I'm attending one of the top unis in my country for physics, and most people seem pretty normal, and just spend a long time reading stuff. Nobody pulls off some crazy shit for fun, nobody challenges the science, they just do the required work and then go out drinking on the weekend.
Just my idea of it. I mean if you have some of the smartest people in the world all in one place, don't you think they're going to pull off some smart pranks or build something cool just for fun? Like maybe they build robots to fight with?
The people in my labs are pretty normal, they can regurgitate the stuff we learn in lectures but they rarely question anything, they don't want to do anything but wait for the end of the day when they can drink and go clubbing.
The fun stuff goes on on the graduate and post-doc levels. You are there to learn the basics so you will be ready for it. Be a star in your courses and a professor might offer you a chance to work in his lab, where the real science goes o n.
