That's true. But honestly, I can't think of anything we're dabbling into that I personally feel less
qualified to discuss in earnest, and even barely to speculate on. My investigations into the biochemical foundations of life via molecular-biology studies and research frankly leave me flabbergasted.
-In software engineering, I feel vaguely like some kind of an engineer, at least part of the time.
-In character animation, I feel remotely qualified to judge acting-quality, having been a human being all my life.
-In electrical engineering, I've actually put together a thing or two under the close guidance of a good mentor.
-In mechanical engineering, I feel like only a bumbling dabbler, strictly an amateur. Mostly breaking things but sometimes
But when it comes to life sciences
(in particular at the molecular level) I don't think I understand much at all. Nor do most others I suspect -- certainly not the pop-science crowd. Never have so many LARPed so hard with so much ultimate comedy in the end.
