I'd guess one of the members of the C,C+,C++ family will be dominant, maybe java. I use R, so I'm not too worried about learning the latest language.

I live well :) If I had to add something, I'd have more beer and wine.

Depressant != Depressing, as all the Government rhetoric about drugs implies. It simply means the drug reduces the the activity of a particular part of the body.

Edit: an articular on the effects of melatonin on the sympathetic nervous system.

If your sole intent is to tinker heart rate, you could try digoxin (digitalis), or keep it simple with a beta blocker of some form. The former works by binding to a subunit on cardiac Na/K pumps, leading to calcium retention, lengthening the cardiac action potential, while the latter works by prolon...

A nice, easy job somewhere in evolutionary biology, from which I can attain some skills and diverge into deeper waters

You have no idea how accurate this chart was for me, it's really an eye opener. The first time I saw it I was a bit angry to see all my bad qualities up on display but that's gone now... they are there to learn from them and watch out for those tendencies of weak areas which I often forget... Subje...

Erwin Schrödinger. He has an incredible command of both Science, and written language. He wrote my favourite biology treatise ever, What is Life? If I have a hero, Schrödinger is he :)

what is your favourite book?

I'm not saying it's science, I know it's not a science. I'm saying it's a spiritual process that was alluded to with a metaphor; of transmuting lead to gold. People took that at face value, and assumed that they actually were talking about turning actual lead to gold. You would want to hide your ac...

Newton was interested in astrology too, so I am told. That seems likely. But that doesn't lend credence to astrology, just as his associations with alchemy didn't stop it being a pseudoscientific endevour which led to chemistry, which actually works. I see alchemy as not a pseudo scientific process...

If you're wondering about our "worldview", it varies. I personally take a libertarian view of morality; live, and let live, by not initiating force against another, or imposing a preference forcefully. I get up in the morning to learn, because I love knowledge. Biology, Physics, Computer Science, Li...

Look up the Briggs - Myers test, and look up a detailed description of your type. It will match you to an incredibly close degree, compared to astrological waffle. I was amazed when I did mine. It's interesting, but the Myers Briggs women based their work on that of Carl Jung, who was mighty keen o...

I'm a vegan, so I don't eat meat. I eat plants of gods creation. this thread is meant for people who actually believe in astrology, meditation, god, etc... your free to post but there's no point debating with someone with such a completely different perspective unwilling to actually take mysticism ...
