    Does anyone know where I can find an article that talks about prostitution leading to drug abuse?

    I can't find jack on google.

    a bit too simple but good nonetheless.

    "Drug dependence and associated risks among female street-based sex workers in the greater Sydney area, Australia."

    I found it on UofT's journal database. If you want, I can email it to you.

    I'm such a dork. We had to right a word problem for S.O.H.C.A.H.T.O.A.
    "Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the king's horses and all the king's men. Couldn't put Humpty together again. What if Humpty, considering his pleasantly rotund build, had ... Read Morerealized he was suspect to a fall, and brought a ramp with him? To assure Humpty lands safely, assume the ramp has an angle of elevation of 20 degrees and is placed 100 feet away from the base of the wall. If Humpty falls now, this time onto the ramp, how far will he roll? Asumming it takes Humpty 22 seconds to reach the ground, calculate Humpty's speed."

    The faded look works with a vintage-type orange.

    However the text and shapes stand out to contrast this style. Blend the image into one theme.

    Is there better entertainment on S2 right now than trade threads in the Blazers forum?

    Also, the Warriors forum is super-active this year and nobody seems to know.

    HUGE epic win

    So hour 4 out of 6 for my finals today began my orgo test. After going through two pages of nomenclature I get to a mechanism problem, where you are given the products, solvent, and reactant of a reaction and have to show how it happens. This is a bit harder than it might seem, because you have to follow the problem on the electron level, and have to use arrows to show how they move about, and how the compounds change to get to some final product you have to figure out. Problem: I have no idea what the fuck I'm looking it. While the final products share the general cyclohexane structure, the hydrocarbon chains are way different, and what's worse: there are alkenes in different parts of the compound! Great, I have to take one compound and get two completely different things, and the substrates are really foreign. Our teacher likes to use his own shorthand, so I'm looking at what I think is methoxy but...yikes...This was not one of the 30 reactions I studied for the final. After staring at this thing for like 20 minutes I give up and move on to the rest of the exam, I'll come back later.

    Well this test was the hardest sonovabitch I've ever taken in my life. It made you submit to some form of helplessness, and yet while you recognized you were at it's mercy it provided enough stimulation to keep the faith. Ridiculously hard...I think 1/4 of the class didn't finish. I barely got to the end in time: I had taken 2 hours and I had 15 minutes left. Shit. I still had that mechanism problem to figure out, and not answering it or throwing some BS together would knock off 20% points from my grade. Doo doo.

    Well, boom. I see that the solvent is protic and a weak nucleophile: I'll try a unimolecular elimination reaction. Well after I form an alkene, mess around with resonance contributors, and even bust out a 1,2 methyl shift...I nailed it. Huge win, and a great way to end the semester. I went to a 6 hour review session that started at 8am yesterday, pulled an all nighter, and even crammed for 3 hours in between finals. Looks like it paid off.

    I have no idea what half the words you just wrote mean.

    Awesome job though.

    heh. Organic Chemistry comes as advertised. Not for the weak of heart. It's a year long course broken up into two semesters. I heard OChem2 (next semester) is so ridiculous...like OChem rxns and synthesis but just 50 more.

    edit: and thank you!! :D

    I remember my friends complaining about how the organic chemistry part of the MCAT was the most stressful and frustrating.

    Re: Random Thought Thread (NSFW)

    The first day you think it won't be that bad, since you're scrapping the entire periodic table from general chemistry for about 5 or 6 atoms, that's it.

    Then the sodium hydroxides of gen. chem. become the (E4R,5R) 4-methoxy-5-phenyl-2-hexene...I had to draw that today, and yes, if you gave the (Z4R,5R), (E4S,5R), (Z4R,5S) versions, etc...it would be wrong :(

    Re: Random Thought Thread (NSFW)

    I'm switching (upgrading) teachers between semesters. Apparently I soiled by not getting this guy in the first semester. He's got the best reputation as the top OChem teacher, and will get you good and ready for the MCATs.

    Red flag? The class meets Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 7:30am. WOOT

    I'm just taking Physics for my lab science and that's it.

    Re: Random Thought Thread (NSFW)

    Yeah I still need to finish off my physics requirement and biology requirement too. Luckily I've already done Bio2 before bio1, so it should be a walk in the park. After that, I can finally settle back, finish off my psych major with one more class, and dick around with easy A classes. I haven't had one of those in a while.
