Just another dissertation

Just Another Dissertation - by Christina Petersen

God loosened his tie and hoped the committee would go easy on him. He faced five professors seated in the front row of the biology department conference room.

Tracksuits

The UK MS Society is selling tracksuits. Is it just me, but I wouldn't be seen dead in a tracksuit advertising that I had MS. Also, given that mobility problems etc are common - when would one wear such a costume? At the tennis club, playing football etc?

Snarky Website about TV

Hi all,

Time to reveal my other favorite Website
http://www.televisionwithoutpity.com

It's a website featuring professional writers who write recaps of television shows and forums for discussing shows. It's a dual American/Canadian website so it focuses on shows from those countries but there are also threads for shows from other countries (like Sabado Gigante, New Zealand Idol, Queer as Folk)
