  • Pssh! Good luck.

  • But even after Yao, even while Jeremy Lin...

  • this still looks weird, huh?

  • Well, I don't blame you.

  • and friends expect you to go into.

  • Medicine!

  • Business or Finance.

  • Science and Engineering.

  • - And Law. -Hey!

  • Unfortunately, I suck at all those things

  • and I'm awesome at basketball.

  • But no one believes that I can--ow!

  • Ow!

  • I...ooh, I am so sorry.

  • I was practicing my free throws.

  • You were practicing your free throws that way,

  • and you hit me in the head this way?

  • Dribbling.

  • What're you doing?

  • Taking' notes. Duh!

  • You actually like physics?

  • Well, I like living and physics is life, so yes,

  • yes, indeed, I like physics.

  • Man, I wish we could change places.

  • Everyone expects me to be a doctor, lawyer, scientist...

  • I have this physics exam tomorrow and I know I just can't do it.

  • Everyone's gonna think I'm a failure.

  • Uh, physics exam? Well, which branch?

  • Classical mechanics, thermodynamics, or mechanics?

  • Electrotechnics or...(gasps) Oooh...relativity.

  • The normal version?

  • Do you know anything about physics?

  • Heh. Yeah!

  • Like, Albert Einstein...equals...MC...Hammer?

  • I have a three on three basketball tournament with my cousins tomorrow.

  • If I can't play, I will never hear the end of it.

  • and P=F/A.

  • Wait...did you just cuss at me?!

  • Hey! Don't use your urban slang on me!
