    Yes, a lot of people seemed to have thought i was a girl for a long time. It seems to be the name. But that's just the name i use, because it's a nickname i've had for years...ever since when i was a baby, my older brother, who could barely talk, couldnt manage to say "William", so instead just said "Willa". So it just stuck, and now my parents call me that and everything.

    oh no i do think girls SHOULD be good at physics

    just in my experience most physics & maths boffs are boys...not all of course (hey i go to a girls' school and there are plenty of v good phys & maths people)..but in general.

    Lol...sounds like my physics teacher...well...my old physics teacher

    He went to apply for a job as head of physics at a girls school, and he got offered it...but didn't take it. When we asked why...he said, "I didn't take the job because girls are crap at physics....AND they don't play rugby!!!!!"

    On the subject of nicknames....i have absolutely millions!! G, rhino, panda, oddjob, random task, the list goes on.

    Btw- Willa...i already have mIRC...my bro downloaded it....has anyone else got it...cos then we can all chat!

    My sister never had any problems with my name, but when she was about 12 decided to get all baby-voiced and silly, and started calling me "Len" or "Lennie." It's kind of stuck with her now, although she found it hilariously funny when she was doing Of Mice and Men last year
