    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    So what do you make those charts and summaries off? Just data sets the other people have already written up for you?

    Well yeah part of it is that I've never enjoyed "math", even though plenty of subjects with a heavy math element (ie/ chemistry) have always appealed to me.

    The money aspect I understand for sure, as long as you like it. And I guess it probably gets a lot more interesting later on. I mean this class I'm taking is all confidence intervals and central limi theorem and basic probability. It's just boring when your homework is 50 questions of the exact same thing just different data sets, which is what I imagine being an accountant would be like; use the same few formulas but an endless array of data.

    Definitely feel the same way. I find math very boring but maybe that's just the case for entry level calculus and stats courses. I want to major in physics but that requires a lot of math courses which don't particularly interest me as much as physics does.

    I find math fun and interesting when I understand it and never get stuck. Then it is the worst.
    Statistics is pretty much the same.

    I'm starting a course on monday called Quantitative Marketing Research Methods. Conjoint analysis, factor analysis, multidimensional scaling, questionnaire design, data presentation, etc...

    My main reason for taking it that I believe it is useful to have for entry jobs in marketing, and especially marketing research, which is what I am currently thinking I want to do. I think stats can be quite fun if the research subject/what is measured is interesting.

    I really don't like accountancy and absolutely hate auditing.

    I love numbers and data driven research. If my medical aspirations don't work out, I'll likely go the route to do more of a research stats/biostats background to work on medical trials and such.

    So is everybody in this thread with a career either in the medical or financing field?

    I guess I'll be a combination of both (finishing masters in Healthcare Management, essentially MBA with a focus on healthcare policies, probably should have just gone the MBA route).

    If we are counting biceps/triceps as 2 groups, on upper body days I'm hittin at least 4.

    I don't think you need to do a ton to hit your shoulders well. All I do each week is 3 sets of upright rows, 3 sets of shoulder press, and 8-10 sets of lateral raises, with my palms facing backwards instead of inwards and my shoulders are OK. IMO better to hit things more often with less volume each trip than the old 1 part a day routine.

    Shit is serious. A good friend of mine dated someone with BPD. They essentially turn from loving you to hating you on a dime for no apparent reason. When they hate you, it gets bad, like throwing shit at you, physical violence, emotional manipulation, screaming matches, etc. Maybe the medication controls it, but if it were me I'd stay far away... don't care how hot she is.
