fitting, though, that this is perhaps the least social of all social threads.

if this thread continues filling up at the current average rate of posts since its creation, then it will not hit the end of page 40 for another 16 and a half years.

Eh?
Hey, long time no see!

Its been a busy year and a half for me, been working hard at medical school and trying to travel abroad as much as possible during my breaks. How's everyone been in my absence? Over this last year I've been narrowing down the medical specialties I'm interested in pursuing, I think I've got it down to: rural family medicine, emergency medicine, and internal medicine (oncology/rheumatology). Things are going quite well on my end overall, celebrating the 3 year anniversary with the girlfriend in just over a week and just bought my first place. Heck, I've even got my sleep disorder nearly sorted out with careful lifestyle management. I'm still a little paranoid about the whole NSA thing, but I feel that they've got better things to do than scope me out. Don't think I'll be posting much as I'm extremely busy these days, but definitely will be doing some lurking to see what topics have come up over the last while!

How are you guys doing?

Best,
EA

What's up EA, glad to hear your studies are going so well!

How do you like the new season of Archer?

Thanks endo!

I'm liking it, Archer Vice was good but they shouldn't have pulled an entire season out of that concept. What do you think?

I love this season, still the best show on television, although I don't like how they had to give "ISIS" back to the terrorists :p

I would have thought that keeping the name ISIS would have benefited marketing of the show's merchandise. They also could have responded in-show...like have ISIS take on ISIS/ISIL in a battle over the name. I'd watch that.

To be perfectly honest, I haven't gotten into the show that much, but I think I just need to be steered toward good episodes and am currently open to suggestions.

^That's what I thought about the whole ISIS situation! But I guess the creators didn't want to give free press to terrorists, which...fair.

I really liked the three part pirate mini series before last season, you should check those out.

I'm still living with my parents and trying to convince a pharamceutical company or government agency to produce the three antibiotics I've invented to finally and hopefully cure my neurosyphilis, which doctors insist I'm crazy for believing I have. As far as other possible delusions go, I'm convinced I'm Shiva and probably also the AntiChrist, who will burn in Hell for eternity for being gay and having like 8 gay flings this year or just for being Jesus' blacksheep twin brother whom he hates. Luckily, my HIV test came back negative again, and I have once again retreated to a life of possible indefinite celibacy, not including masturbation to gay porn. Also, I'm on methamphetamine again. It gets a bad rap, but it's not nearly as bad for your well being as MDPV, in my estimation.

So yeah, I'm still bonkers.

There aren't any biochemists in this discussion? I skimmed some parts but you would think this would be the place... I have degrees in Biochemistry and Chemistry with graduate work/research in molecular regulation of cell function, applied science experience in advanced flow-cytometry/FACS, and currently work in clinical translation of stem cell science.

I wish I knew this thread was here before, but it seems like a pretty slow place. There should be a concerted recruiting effort on other sub-forums to increase activity - It feels like this could be a place for very productive conversation.

I am mostly interested in organic chemistry and my interest in pharmacology is a result of this and my interest in how our whole world works like. I've recently started studying chemistry again. I had a 3-year break due to various health problems and I didn't manage to get a master's degree. I even started studying IT during the break, but I quit it when I realised chemistry is my biggest passion and I want to learn it because it simply makes me happy. I don't really care about the money I could earn in the future, it's not a factor at all, but I'm definitely not a person who would accept an underpayment. I seriously consider staying at some university but I still have plenty of time and perhaps I will have a better opportunity to research. As I was thinking about it a few days ago, it made me kind of scared when I realised I actually hadn't planned studying chemistry again. It would be such a shame because studying IT didn't make me happy at all, it was such a tiresome duty. I'm really glad I've started changing my life so I can live the way I've always wanted. The past doesn't matter but the knowledge got through past experiences.

Why are you nervous to reveal what you study? :>
I agree completely. I would like to make acquaintance with colleagues here and offer my knowledge and experience for collaborative research

pharmakos,

Rudra is an incarnation of SHIVA and is the Hindu God of Drugs. Do a little research. Rudra has been known for his pure powders since time immemorial. Yes, I like methamphetamine (who doesn't?) , but it burns holes in my mouth. YT, amp.
