When they're not good enough for Mathematics.

Seriously bro, chemistry get's all the bitches. When they see you, they'll be (Mg,Fe)7Si8O22(OH)2 for really dude.

>> No.5164835

>/sci/, why should I into chemistry?
Based on your questions, you probably shouldn't
>can i gain recognition?
No.
>can i invent/discover anything new?
Only if you graduate near the top of your class and gain entrance to a PhD programme.
So no
>can i not regret my choice of career at age 35?
No.
>can i remain enthusiastic about the thought of going to work at age 50?
No.
>can i be more or less my own boss, have some autonomy?
Fuck no.
>do chemists gain bitches?
That doesn't depend on your major, probably not considering you're on /sci/ and you aren't going to be earning much.
and /sci/, why should i into biology?
>all the same questions
All the same answers
>and seriously, why would anyone into physics?
So they can get into an engineering school.

Math is just physics without a use.

i lol'ed after googling
>>5164835
that is useful although pessimistic advice.

i'd like to wander about in various climates looking for animals and writing down what they're up to in my notebook, then go home for some weeks before going back into the jungle looking for monkeys and frogs. is this realistic, or just a unrealizable childish dream?

I want to tell you something else. I want to tell my post was an exaggeration...but it's not.

Sadly we all have to grow up some day.

>> No.5164860

chemistry sucks, do physics. why? because it's way more baller

>> No.5164880

>can i gain recognition?
Maybe.
>can i invent/discover anything new?
Yes - though the theory of chemistry is pretty thoroughly understood, and it's just the application where there's still progress to be made. Work out a better way to make colossal carbon tubes or big organic molecules, and you'll be valuable.
>can i not regret my choice of career at age 35?
Maybe!
>can i remain enthusiastic about the thought of going to work at age 50?
Depends what you're in. Probably not if you're in pharma.
>can i be more or less my own boss, have some autonomy?
lolno
>do chemists gain bitches?
Doesn't depend on your major.

Biology:
>can i gain recognition?
Yes.
>can i invent/discover anything new?
Definitely... though whether it's anything more than three people will care about certainly depends on which of the numerous subfields you go into.
>can i not regret my choice of career at age 35?
Yes.
>can i remain enthusiastic about the thought of going to work at age 50?
Probably not if you're a field biologist.
>can i be more or less my own boss, have some autonomy?
Hahaha... well, more so than in chemistry, but still no. No one discovers anything in science without team effort these days. It is certainly easier to fake results in bio than in chem, which can let you get results on your own.
>do biologists gain bitches?
You will learn more dumb science-related pick-up lines that only work on a very specific type of freshman girl in bio than in chem.

I did exactly that in Ecuador a few years ago.

The pay is shit, and you are not doing anything very useful, and it won't be possible for an entire career since there are a limited number of places people will pay you to survey. But if you want to become an ecologist or field biologist, you can do pretty much exactly that.

You will either live in poverty or spend far more time trying to get grant money than actually out in the field, but that's all of science.

Jane Goodall, Jonathan Kingston, BirutÄ— Galdikas... there are lots of elderly motherfuckers who still do field work.
