One thing that's interesting is that I looked at the bio major requirements at Amherst out of curiosity, and they're utterly different from Portland State. Like, very significantly different. It's interesting. Of course, because you're on semester and we're on quarters it's really hard to say whether it's really as different as it seems, or whether both programs cover the same material in different time frames and with different names.

It's even different here sometimes. Northeastern is a 5 year university, for some reason, which made it a pain in the ass for friends of mine to transfer out of there. I had a few friends that went there (you know, when they were supposed to), and one or two of them ended up transferring to UMass Boston and it was a bit of a headache transferring the credits because it was a different credit system. Maybe it was something like that where it was a quarter system or something, I don't know. But the Massachusetts state system is roughly 1 credit per hour per week of class time. Obviously that's not an exact measurement since I did about 10 hours of Genetics, but it was also half the time and double the misery, but non-lab courses are generally 3 credits, lab courses 4.

Our in-state systems are pretty integrated, but it's also about 1 credit for every hour of class/lab time, so 180 credits to graduate, for a BS, and some schools register labs separately (because the labs aren't required for every degree) while others combine the class and lab into one registered course. I think maybe course numeration is really different, because your Principles and Genchem courses are listed as 100-level, yet as far as I can tell they're the exact same curriculum as our 200-level Principles and Genchem, spread over 2 semesters instead of 3 quarters.

ALSO:

Even though we are getting rid of the HCl plant, we are building a NITRIC ACID PLANT instead!

Yay!  All the corrosiveness, PLUS toxic!

Do they have plans to sell the nitrate byproducts, or something?

I think you guys have a very different system there; I've never even heard of a learning contract.

Got my flu shot.
Now I have autism.

Getting mine tomorrow.  It's that or wear a mask all winter.

Apparently they have nasal, transdermal, AND preservative free options, but I'd have to head up to the hospital from the laundry facilities. Just plain old mercuric preservatives and a big 'ol scary needle for us laundry folk.

I've had a few over the last couple years now and haven't noticed any brain dablage whatsoever.

I put it in my calendar to get mine last Tuesday, but I forgot and guess what? Now I have a splitting headache and a fever. :(

:ebola:

ETA:  Dang.  We need to do something about that.

I'm hoping it doesn't get any worse and that it just serves as a warning to get my shot ASAP... I'll go to bed early  tonight. They won't give me the vaccine if I'm sick, so I have to get better before I can get it.

Well, and we JUST hit the halfway mark on the term, which means midterms next week.  :lol:

Ah! I see what you're saying!

It's like the weird math around "infinity prime", "infinity / 2", "infinity squared", etc.

You can play fascinating games with it, but if you're dealing with an electron probability distribution, it still ends up with the same equation.

Yeah exactly.

It's really interesting though, and I'm curious where they go with it.

Actual rehabilitation instead of just punishment? And it's WORKING???

Go figure.

 :lulz: Extremely useful.

I don't know why PSU names its classes the way they do. Every time I mention that I'm taking Perception or Holistic Problem Solving, people giggle.  :lol:

Ochem grades are in! 95%, which helps make up for the sorry score I got in mol bio. Its also nice to know that I don't need to stress over it and can focus my energy on my one hard class.

And silicone is truly the way to go.

44
I just went lap swimming for the first time in 15 years. I hurt. I did okay, I gassed the fuck out, but I hurt. This is going to be a long hard road out of hell.

Also, these new silicone swim caps are the bee's knees. Way better than the latex ones.

Love swimming! I'm so out of practice that I'll probably flail around like a giraffe in a pond when I I finally get back in a pool.

I just dropped a box of sockets down the stairs and accidentally wrote a Nickleback song.

It has to be better than the horrific atrocity that is every other nickelback song. That last one gave me hemhorragic fever.

Check out John Galt, here, talking to Angelique.

Your blood will boil, thus killing the ebola.

UNNNNNGH

I think you nailed it with "Tiny penis". Angelique is one of the sweetest people there is, I don't know what the fuck is wrong with someone who tries to knock her down because she's pretty.

Not so much that she was pretty, but that he felt she was "cocky".

Oh I think the subtext was that she's pretty. If she wasn't, he would have attacked her weight or her looks. Misogynists are hopelessly predictable.
