I salute anyone who puts themself through the grind of getting a PhD.
TBF, Australia had far worse than that:
Today I learned to not take ibuprofen if you are allergic to ibuprofen. That's what the "consumer information" paper that came along in the box said.
Yeah, kinda like I was trying to explain to nurses and other people why I'm not taking one of the most commonly-prescribed drugs for people in my situation. When you keep throwing it up and it causes pain at the level of a full-blown gall bladder attack (an actual gall bladder attack lasts for hours; the pain from this medication lasted for days), it's probably not a good idea to keep taking it. When they persisted in telling me I should take it anyway(!), I pointed out that if I couldn't keep it down and no, it wasn't really a gall bladder attack because I had mine removed nearly 20 years ago, then subjecting myself to this torture wouldn't benefit me in any way whatsoever.
At least my doctor understood that. Unfortunately I'm not covered for the more expensive option.
If it proved anything beyond willingness to spend the time and ability to spend the money involved in staying in school that long I might too. Unfortunately...
St Johns Wort is like a miracle drug for me. It really helps keep me on an even keel.
TIL that trying to play as the Maori on a Terra map in Civ VI causes a CTD every time on startup. No ultimate cheese playthrough
Sounds like a feature to me!
The Aye-aye has 6 fingers, sort of.
This MRI image shows the various structures of the aye-aye’s hand. The pseudo-thumb is made up of the radial sesamoid bone, in red, and its cartilaginous extension called the prepollex, in pink. It’s controlled by the adductor pollicis longus, in purple, and two other muscles shown in light and dark green. Other tendons and muscles are shown in light blue.
Instead of trashing your heath care system, out of ignorance, no doubt, i would ask why aren't you covered for the more expensive option? Who would be covered for the more expensive option?
Don't be so hasty to salute, soldier.
All I had to do was to put together stuff I wrote a few years before.
I did that from my lounge room, stoned most of the time, and while my (sober) partner and I watched 200 episodes of Star Gate in a row.
I did that one time while abusing stimulants to get a lot of work done. It wasn't until 5 or 6 hours in that I realized that the repeat setting was on and I had been watching the first episode over and over. SG1 is a hell of a drug.
SG1 and Atlantis were great back then. I couldn't stomach SG Universe.
I haven't abused stims, alcohol or opiates for almost 35 years. (IMO it's not appropriate once you have a kid.)
Down here in the Socialist Workers Paradise, I get government-funded amphetamines very cheap, using next-to-free medical services. Whatta country!
a woman and her family were at a camera obscura tourist attraction which took an infra red shot of them. It showed an unusually bright spot over her left breast. She googled it and found out doctors can use infra red when looking for cancer, a doctor confirmed very early stage breast cancer.
How cheap is yours? I have no insurance and mine is $35 for x30 20mg time release.
Today I learned that there are luxury ice cubes.
I don't know why.
Well, if you are drinking this you don't want to drop an ice cube made from the local mudwater into it.
What are "sherry butts"?
Large wooden barrels used to age sherry. In this case subsequently used to age Scotch.
Imagine buying that only to accidentally drop the bottle.
