I'm a neurologist. Also a fan of physics in the sense that I enjoy watching it like I enjoy watching baseball but I can't really play either one.

comment What causes ballpoint pens to write intermittently?
Then it's got to be that the ball has small imperfections that prevent it from rolling. That's a testable hypothesis-see if the ball rolls when its in this state.

comment Can a single molecule have a temperature?
This sounds like an application of the "sorites problem"...as you add grains of sand to a collection one by one, when does it become a "heap". Similar issue here?
