re: What brand pocket knife is your every day carry? - Kimist
Always carried an Uncle Henry when I was younger. My wife gave me a nice Buck when we got married, but I'm afraid of losing it, so I don't carry it except occasionally. I think it's a Prince model, or something like that. I carried a small two blade Buck for several years. A couple of year...

re: Having a shitty grad school research advisor - Kimist
Delicate situation. I would advise talking cordially to him as others have said, pointing out the effects his actions are having on you. Base your actions on those responses. If the response is positive, I would definitely give him another chance, but be on the watch for further similar behav...

re: Anyone here have experience with their kids and ADHD? - Kimist
Document what you observe. Have teachers do the same. Don't listen to people who don't think it exists, which will be 75% of those on this board. See a doctor. It may be determined that your child doesn't have it. Mine was always getting in trouble before being prescribed medication. That sto...

re: Post a random fact or piece of trivia in this thread - Kimist
