My job......

It has never been great, but it got really crappy recently, culminating in them adjusting my role in a manner that is not acceptable for the long term.

Re: Irony - College Degrees And Pay

But is light colored equipment as easy to find, and at the same price as the dark colored equipment? If it's not the same price, and if it requires special order or opens one up to extra managing (such as if the supplier accidentally sends the [more]

Re: Food stamp cuts causing problems

Gosh, wouldn't it be awful if WalMart actually had to start paying its minions a living wage? (sarcastically stated, of course. Not been a fan of Wally's World in 20+ years)

Re: Budget Help

What types of things did you cook on the weekends to reheat later? I feel like the last two years (my youngest is 2) have been the hardest ever and I see no end in sight to the constant lack of energy from chasing two toddlers [more]

Re: Budget Help

It's definitely possible to fix the food budget. The problem is I don't know what to cook. I'm pretty tired at the end of the day, and don't usually have the energy to cook, hence the convenience foods, hence the big grocery budget.

Re: Meta analysis - saturated fat is okay

I must say I have never actually tried cooking with lard. Old timers do talk about it. I have seen it on the grocery store shelf. Some people must still use it.

Re: TW wants to be homeschooled...

There will never be "Wombat" plan. What there can be is a generic "Smart Kid Plan" that has been tweaked to fit The Wombat. Just like there is plan for FirstLock that is generic, but tweaked to fit him. The kids I feel for the [more]

Re: Another "food stamp challenge" story

I actually usually hate, loathe, and despise these food stamp experiments with the fire of 10,000 suns. They have so many incorrect assumptions and so much sanctimoniousness about them that I want to throw my computer out the window when I see [more]

Re: Professional Degree?

Absolutely false. You can get a Master's in Chemistry and in Physics.

So far, everything I've seen regarding a Masters in Chemistry has appeared to be it counts as terminal degree if someone started out pursuing a PhD and then [more]

The OP provided a link to a program and it was the first time I heard of such thing. My understanding is that to be called a "Professional Engineer (PE)" you need to pass a state exam similar to passing the bar for lawyers. The exam is [more]

Re: Professional Degree?

I may be wrong, as it isn't my field, but I was under the impression that there was no Masters degree in chemistry. That you had to go from Bachelors to PhD (that's the way MIL did it, and also a friend who graduated from our university several [more]

Re: Why is Mortgage Debt "Different"
