  1. Sounds awesome. Been waiting for some of these for quite some time now. Hopefully the filter will help overcome my intense hatred of the pages.
  2. They're not supposed to be rare; there is no announcement. But they aren't breeding and aren't dropping in the Cave. In the trading threads it's not uncommon to see CB Springs going for 2nd-gen metallics and the like. And I haven't really seen a glut to account for them being off-ratio...
  3. I'm pretty set on being an equine veterinarian. Not sure if I'll just do general practice or specialize-- endocrinology is pretty interesting, and so is therio, but I'm not sure if I'd want to do either of them exclusively. I've also kinda had a goal of travelling to developing countries with programs like World Vets etc, and helping on both veterinary & public health fronts there. The health and livelihoods of people and animals are so intertwined in many places. That's going to have to be something I try first, though, since I honestly might freak out so far from technology and mod
  4. The only way I see this affecting NDs is to the negative. I'll try to explain well enough hopefully without getting myself a warn or something for revealing too much about Neglecteds. When you make a ND you need to get a lot of views very fast when the egg has only minutes or seconds remaining. Generally NDs turn when they have 30 seconds or less left, so many people "bounce" them to a friend's scroll right after they turn in order to gain a day. Because of the time constraint, it would be difficult to set up a Tele after they turn-- that's pretty much always done right before you start the
  5. If he literally gives you no other choice then email is better than nothing. But a phone call would be better.

  7. Most of what I have to say about animal testing has already been stated. Labs are very careful with their test subjects. They are treated with care and there is honestly little to no suffering-- pain is a variable that can interfere with tests, so it is minimized. All labs have a veterinarian on staff to help with treatments, management, and euthanasia. And there are tons of regulations about lab animal treatment. There is no viable alternative to animal testing at this time. Computer models can only get you so far-- I mean think about it, you're experimenting because you don't know how
  8. But the fact is that a lot of people AREN'T responsible or respectful. It's been that way throughout history, and it's not likely to change. I'm not sure what you're trying to argue. Re the blood test: it's to make sure everyone is being honest about what venereal diseases they might have (a positive result wouldn't block them from marriage, but it would ensure that both parties were aware). Doubtless something else that could be eradicated if only everyone would be respectful.
  9. Got a 15. I'm bad with blues and purples (short wavelengths).
  10. Right now it is this: http://crappyunicorn.deviantart.com/art/Ca...paper-208156700
  11. I'm assuming birds count as exotics haha. One female cockatiel and two male budgies. Archimedes, Jeffrey, and Dimitri from left to right. <3
  12. That wears off after the first year and a half or so, if it's any consolation. :V
  13. That would be a very big dropdown menu for some of us, lol. But I can see where the arrows might be useful.
  14. That's one hell of a stereotype. Bisexual NDE hypersexual. I'm bi and happily married to a bi man; we were each other's firsts. All of the other bisexuals I know are similar; when they're in a relationship it's committed, lasting for months or years, and certainly not just about sex. Being with a bi man just means that we can see an actor on TV and both think he's cute.
  15. Some professors are simply better researchers than they are teachers, lol. Doesn't mean they're clueless, just that the classroom environment isn't their forte. Most "absent-minded professors" are really quite brilliant, they're just easily distracted by thinking about the stuff going on back in the lab. Plus, it's entirely possible that profs can have a bit of stage fright, especially if they're fairly new to the job-- unlike high school teachers, college profs generally do not have any sort of degree in Education. They'll understand the concepts themselves, but not necessarily know how best
  16. Ooo, I remember separating the caffeine from coffee in OChem. We also made aspirin and turned lard into soap. Always ran IRs on our products too-- it was pretty fun stuff.
  17. Tell the prof. Any professor worth their salt will work with you and give you advice-- either giving you a temp code, or giving you print-offs of the assignment etc.
  18. I would say to do your research before choosing which (if any) AP classes you take. By the time you're taking AP level classes, you're most likely a junior or senior, and have some kind of idea where you'll be applying. Look into your colleges' AP policies. Most schools accept them; some don't. Some accept them in name, but they're really only worth a few extra credit hours and you still have to take the classes. Some only accept classes that are gen-eds for your major, and not core major classes. Some accept them, but you have to fill in the "gap" with a higher-level class. Check the website
  19. Oh yeah :3 Our GPA for Honors level classes were x 1.05, and for AP classes were x 1.10-- so if you got an 89 raw percentage in an AP class, it was actually curved to a 98. Which, as tough as the classes were, was totally justified.
  20. So much this. I went into college with 17 credits of gen eds because of my AP classes. The AP exam is $87, so I paid $348 for my four courses (which translated to 5 college classes)-- a semester with the same five classes would have cost me $19,900 tuition at my college. And even if your college doesn't accept AP credit, or if you don't do well enough on the exam, it's going to give you a very nice head start once you take the course in college.

  22. You learn quickly what does and doesn't work for you. Know how to operate a clothes washing machine and an ATM and you'll do fine. I'm a senior triple majoring in Pre-Veterinary, Biology (Life Science emphasis), and Animal Science, plus a minor in Chemistry. It sounds like a lot until you realize that the chem minor comes built in to the pre-vet, and with a Pre-Vet and Biology double major I needed only two extra classes to get an Animal Science degree. I would have been applying to vet schools this year, but my last semester went terribly-- had some major emotional issues going on and m
