re: Was Day-to-day American life in 1996 closer to 2016 or 1976? - Elephino
I remember having internet in Middleton for doing some research (porn surfing), but sitting on the payphone at the Union to register for classes. I had also just gotten out of the Navy. I remember only one guy having a cell phone, but there was an entire bank of payphones outside our barracks that...

re: Worst behavior you've seen at a wedding or funeral? - Elephino
My wife is a funeral director/embalmer, so I've heard some good ones. I think the best was a man that had been married 3 times, plus had a current mistress (still married to 3rd wife), had a very "lively" wake. A son from the first marriage (30-something in age) hated the second wife (his 1st step...

re: Does Ibuprofen truly expire? - Elephino
Ibuprofen has been used as sort of a model drug to determine forced degradation in a laboratory setting to establish protocols for determining the stability of other drugs. Certainly light would speed the process of the oxidative cleavage of the carboxylic acid, but ibuprofen has produced degradati...

re: Does Ibuprofen truly expire? - Elephino
Yes, in this case, ibuprofen does truly expire. Some drugs are shelf stable for years, but ibuprofen is prone to photochemical oxidation. The major degradation product is 4-isobutylacetophenone, but as many 7 degradation products have been reported in tablets 12 months past the original expiration...

re: Coconut oil for memory - Elephino
It's the basis for the "medical food" Axona (FDA classification), which is promoted as an add-on/alternative treatment for Alzheimer's. The main ingredient is caprylic triglyceride (part of the supposed active ingredient in coconut oil). The mechanism isn't necessarily related to the medium chain f...

re: Giving up its U.S. citizenship could save Pfizer $35 billion in taxes - Elephino
Everyone always mentions the lack of state income taxes in Texas as a benefit. I recall paying over $600/month in property taxes in Texas plus insane wind/storm for living near the coast (from the state), which more than negated the savings of not paying state income tax. I live in SC now and pay a ...

re: Anybody take Z Pack while in Mexico? - Elephino
Zpac dosing is 500 mg on day one and 250 mg on days 2-5. Azithromycin is overused and is starting to see resistance. It is more effective and safe at higher doses (500 mg for 8 days is not uncommon). I prefer Cefdinir....

Made this post exactly 5 months ago. Sort of prophetic now.

At this point the balance is shifting towards "winning" over "principle" if for no other re...

re: Periodic HOW OLD ARE YOU PEOPLE?! thread - Elephino
Well you're a better man/woman than I. Sometimes I wonder if my students can learn not how. The learning styles and expectations of my students is far different from how it was 10 years ago and drastically different from when I was at LSU almost 20 years ago. I do my best to keep up, but the entitle...

re: Periodic HOW OLD ARE YOU PEOPLE?! thread - Elephino
What field? For anyone in a science that translates to the medical field (pharmacology, pathophysiology, immunology, genetics, etc) I would recommend pursuing your degree in a health science center. I went to UTHSC (Tennessee). With no undergrads, the TA work translates much better to what you will ...

re: Jeb under 10% right now depsite, again, outpsneidng everyone - Elephino
These numbers would likely be different in a three man race. I think Carson and Kasich might be smart enough to get out before Super Tuesday. I don't think Jeb is smart enough to come in out of the rain, And he still has money ...

re: Periodic HOW OLD ARE YOU PEOPLE?! thread - Elephino
I've been teaching for 10 years. I did a postdoc at Notre Dame funded by Eli Lilly with the intention of going into industry. I got recruited by Texas A&M to help start their pharmacy program in 2006. I was advised by my mentor to take the path of academic stability. I ended up enjoying it more than...

Jeb was unpopular from the word go, simply because of his name. Thousands of people (myself included) believe GW and Jeb were above average governors for their states and are genuinely good people. I do not support a generational family dynasty of presidential leadership....
