for organic chemistry you could ask about chair conformations, electrophiles, nucleophiles, or chirality. for biology you could ask about dna replication or protein synthesis?

wwwwwouulllld any one of those single chemistry concepts that mean vague things to me be for any reason excluded from a college midterm? lik just as a matter of teaching a college level syllabus?

question for science people!

what kind of question might one need to ask a study partner for organic chemistry or biology?

i took astronomy like a libarts jackass :)

I think Ms. Rand and my character Oscar the Grouch would have a lot to talk about actually. I am laughing out loud at this idea.


AYN RAND
Why would I want to talk to him. What has he achieved or trying to achieve.

JIM HENSON
He has achieved what I think is the ultimate goal of your way of thinking.

JIM HENSON
Isolation. Contempt for others. A hard heart. Yet even he can muster a bit of empathy every now and then.

AYN RAND
I am not isolated. I have no contempt for others. Millions of people read my books and find my thoughts inspirational. I hardly spend my time on the sidelines in a trash can grumping.

JIM HENSON
Not yet anyway.

Both Cullen and Anders are characters who have in retconned (and bent time and space) to appear in DA2 because they have a large and loud fanbase. And now with Cullen’s appearance in DA:I. Mike Laidlaw’s comment about almost being able to hear the fangirls squee when Cullen was showed in the latest Twitch stream was proof of that. I have no problem with Cullen, but I think its ridiculous how fans refuse to admit that his appearance in DA:I is pure fanservice.

Anders’ fanbase was hardly “large and loud”. He was just a popular character (and given how much foreshadowing is in Awakening, I find it difficult to believe BW didn’t have plans for him before Awakening was even released). 
As for Cullen, he wasn’t even a love interest until BW was given an extra year of dev time for DAI. They were quite prepared to have him in the game, but not available for romance. That tells me that “servicing” his fans was fairly low on their priorities. 
Just because they acknowledge how popular a character is doesn’t mean their inclusion is solely to appease a certain population. Also, these criticisms seem to only pop up when something comes out that isn’t for white straight men. Cullen is fanservice, GLBT characters and love interests are fanservice, showing female and non-human inquisitors is fanservice. It’s a loaded word that gets trotted out to minimize the importance of anything the user deems frivolous or unimportant, regardless of how fucking ridiculous it is to pick out any element of a game made for fans to enjoy and slam it for…being enjoyed by fans.

The peril of hipster economicsOn May 16, an artist, a railway service and a government agency spent $291,978 to block poverty from the public eye. [link]

This is important. 

"I’ve heard several young hipsters tell me they’re socially-liberal and economic-conservative, a popular trend in American politics," he writes. "Well, I hate to break it to you buddy, but it’s economics and the role of the state that defines politics. If you’re an economic conservative, despite how ironic and sarcastic you may be or how tight your jeans are, you, my friend, are a conservative …"

Every time I hear “socially liberal and economically conservative” now, all I can think is I want to fuck whoever I feel like and fuck over everyone else.
(And yeah. Ten, fifteen years ago? That was me.)

did you mean: south park libertarianism
it is my firm opinion that the dramatic rise in visibility of these kinds of politics is due in large part to south park and every fruit of its tree in satire. it’s resonated with young, white people who understood the unfortunate trajectory all our lives were on but haven’t shaken the rhetoric that got us there in the first place. and now, even as this kind of media is beginning to catch up with the irresponsibility of that line of economic thinking, the state of politics is so fucking dismal that cynicism has fishhooked itself so deeply that people don’t want to even bother examining their thought processes
