comfortableanddangerous asked: I'm going into neuroscience, but right now I'm only in Chemistry 1211. What's the best advice you can give someone just starting out?
Anonymous asked: What are you studying?
By the way...
Just started school again, and have been in charge of taking people to work during both the first and third shift, so I haven’t had much time to sleep or work on the blog. Doesn’t help that I’ve been stuck with a netbook while I run around taking people everywhere, and it’s terribly unfriendly dealing with tens of thousands of graphic files at one time. I’ll be back...
haylsifer asked: More fish? Or do you have anything on small animals? Chinchillas, guinea pigs, and other currently domesticated rodents? I know the essential history of the chinchilla being brought to the United States but aside from that, I'm at a loss.

prestongervais asked: biomedicalephemera: If you want to cleanse bones inside a body, I can’t help you, and you should probably seek professional help. If they’re outside a body, remove all the flesh and fat that you can, soak it in water (DONT boil it) and put it in a warm location where the smell wont bother you. Dump out the nasty water every few days and replace it. If you have a garden,...

guthbrand asked: Have you heard of the TV show Horrible Histories? I know many of their sketches do not relate to this blog, but a fair amount do. Like the 'Historical Hospital' sketches, where doctors from various time periods use their cures on modern people.
