Worst Jobs In Science: "I was a teenage stool-sample analyzer. Well, not me, but my old roommate was. He thought this type of job would help him get into med school (it didn't). His biggest complaint was people who turned in tightly-sealed (naturally) peanut-butter jars packed full of the stuff, which would (naturally) decompose producing gas, causing a literal shit-storm when opened. He only needed about a teaspoon-full to do the analysis. "

I'm a healthy motherfucker. I stepped on the scale a couple of days ago and I'm now pushing 195 pounds. I was 192 pounds last week so those three pounds are driving me nuts! I'm working out a lot and definitely gaining muscle mass, but my fat levels are not decreasing. I should add more cardio to my work out.

So true!

The site seems to be operating at 100% efficiency again! I'm not exactly sure what caused the slowdown, but my suggestion to my website admin is what caused the latest problems (eg gallery was broken)! I noticed that the log files for apache were reaching sizes larger than 1.3 GB, so I suggested rotating the logs. When apache was restarted, it was mistakenly restarted in chroot mode (a security feature that we don't really need) and that broke just about everything. My home dir website was down, gallery was down, etc. Another quick email and things are back up again!
