Re: College Tips

A few small things I learned through my own errors and others :) -wear flip-flops in the shower. Seriously. Don't ask questions, just do it. - Don't put metal soup cans in the microwave - Don't burn things - the sprinkler system probably hasn't been changed since before you were born. - Pre-read for...

Re: Worst/Overrated books.

I'm going to have to disagree, it doesn't matter what they read, as long as they read. Reading (I'm sure you know as a degree holding literature person) increases creativity, attention spans, reading speed (go figure), and vocabulary. Other personal benefits include entertaining people on long car r...

Re: Getting a Dog During College

I'm not sure if this is too late, but if you live in an area (or country) that has a program, you could train seeing eye puppies. These puppies go to class, shopping, the library (pretty much anywhere) with you. You keep them for about a year (you get them at about 8 weeks and keep them until they'r...

Re: Worst/Overrated books.

Savage hoards of maniacal chipmunks couldn't force me to talk about Twilight and adults. I'm much more comfortable in my bubble of happiness (in which every youth that picked up one of the Twilight series will someday pick up a different book - for fun - and read it)!

Re: Worst/Overrated books.

I don't deny that it hasn't worked for everyone - I'm not sure if anything but air ever does, however, the people on the forums aren't the ones I'm talking about. They're in the same class of readers still waiting for their Hogwarts letter. The ones in the forums are trying to "out twilight&quo...

Re: Worst/Overrated books.

I was a fan of twilight for one reason; it got and entire generation of teenage girls and boys to pick up a book and [i]read[i].Currently I am a fan of Mercedes Lackey and haven't yet found a book I can put down. In other book news, I'm seriously contemplating starting a serious relationship with my...

Re: Why can't food be put in pill form?

I've been pondering this concept for a while also. I know that TPN (total parenteral nutrition) is available in a liquid form, so why not in a pill form? The only reason I can come up with is that a pill wouldn't have enough bulk to "fill" the stomach activating the stretch receptors to st...
