I don't know if you've seen anything like this, but they're usually a lot more affordable than queening chairs/worship stools! This one's a UK one that sells for £50, so I'd think you'd be able to find something in the $50 range. » 9/22/14 6:01pm Yesterday 6:01pm

Delicious as in you've drunk it? I just checked their page and realised it's a doTerra blend - I love their Breathe and whatever the stress one's called (Serenity?), so I'm curious to try the OnGuard. But I've never ingested them before. Their website says to take a drop or two with a Tblsp of water and gargle - is… » 9/21/14 3:49pm Sunday 3:49pm

If the train commute works and you can afford it, then I would definitely recommend taking the new job! It may not be the same in the US, but all the academics I know in the UK love trains because you get uninterrupted work time. One guy wrote his most recent book on four 4-hour train trips. Yeah, they would be long… » 9/21/14 2:18pm Sunday 2:18pm

I really like Disconnect, but I'm not 100% clear on the difference between the basic filter ("Stop the biggest mobile data collectors from invisbly tracking your web-browing and in-app activity") and the advertising filter ("Reduce risk of identity theft by blocking malicious tracking and malware disguised as… » 9/19/14 5:34am Friday 5:34am

I totally agree with this. The method would be really useful for PhD students, especially those who are largely self-directed with little/no coursework (like those in the UK), but it would also work really well for anyone dealing with long-term projects: each time you sit down, you make a conscious decision to not… » 9/17/14 5:09am 9/17/14 5:09am

I know it's not the same situation, but I lost my husband to cancer four years ago. I love GoodTimeGuy, who I've been seeing for about two years, but sometimes my husband's death really impacts on my current relationship. I'm still grieving (though not in a way that most people see, but my emotions are less stable… » 9/16/14 6:05am 9/16/14 6:05am

I'm fucking raging about this. My father taught at Kent and a student of his was one of the people who was shot and killed. I grew up going to the yearly memorials that are held there. I've seen the families and the people affected by this year after year, their grief still lives with them. » 9/15/14 3:01pm 9/15/14 3:01pm

I'm so nearsighted that I can't see without my glasses (or contacts). Eventually I'll probably need bifocals, and then I'll probably wear contacts and reading glasses. I'm so looking forward to those eyeglass chains! I can't wait to look like her: » 9/12/14 12:30pm 9/12/14 12:30pm
