    I have three final exams on the same day: starting at 8AM and ending at 7PM. That's what's bothering me right now.

    If anyone has a Starbucks gift card they don't want, please shoot me a PM.* :D

    *This is a joke, for those that take things literally. I don't actually expect someone to do this.

    I don't think coffee is gonna cut it. For this you need something more powerful, I would say C17H21NO4.

    Oh crap, can this be considered as a medical advice?

    Why do they have to be written by hand?

    I suspect it's because they don't want us copy-pasting each others lab reports (it's a very common thing in my parts), though they are the only ones (well only ones I stumbled upon), who ask to do it by hand. Everyone else is fine with computer made reports, but not this stupid class.
    From my point of view, a very stupid decision, because whoever wants to copy-paste, will do so, and writing all that stuff down (not only calculations, but all the theory mumbo jumbo) can get very tiring, especially for me, who's a very heavy writer (I press on a pen very hard, stupid habit I can't make go away).
    Though I agree, students who like to copy-paste will have more troubles (can't just print out pictures taken with a smartphone).

    Never tried "speed," but I'd be willing to give it a shot at least once. :D

    Actually, what's it called...? The Alzheimer drug that increases brain activity. That may be helpful during exams. But coffee will have to do it. :(

    How much is the insurance on the 240? If you have liability only, I couldn't imagine that it would be higher than what I pay for my truck.

    6 months of full coverage at 500 thousand dollar umbrella coverage is ~450? I think liability only was ~350 or 375 for 6 months, figured paying like 15 bucks more a month was worth it for full coverage. On my first 240SX, my insurance quote for 6 months full coverage was nearly 2000 dollars for 6 months. Thank goodness for being over 25.
