The criteria is that you enjoy physics

What is the criteria for joining this fine institution?
Also, I was wondering if anyone could recommend some reading. I'm 16 and studying Physics at Scottish Higher lever and plan to pursue a degree in the subject and so plan to do some reading over summer as I will be applying later this year. Thanks
There's this recommended reading list, but it's pretty out of date tbh http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=270868

Would be cool if you could update the reading list! You clearly know your stuff, or at least you did 5 years ago :-). I'm sure there are a lot of aspiring physicists on here that would love to have an extensive list of books that are worthwhile reading.

I was in a public swimming pool today and made an experiment on oneself. I was diving in swimmer's pool to see, if I would come up on surface or not. The result was that I was neither coming up on there nor I was sinking on the ground. My body was floating in water. After archimedes' principle, the body is swimming on surface, if the (specific) density of one is less than water, floating in water, if the density of one is equal to water and sink to the ground, if the density of one is greater than water. In my conclusions I think the specific density of my body is equal to the one of water. Am I right?
After that I thought about people who are swimming on surface in dead sea. in my explanations people have a lesser density compared to black sea. That is to say dead sea's one is greater than people's one. Am I right too?
