Any chance you're in the Philly area? Tons of pharma around here. If so we should have a beer.

I'm a computer programmer (embedded systems).

alkanes alkenes and alkynes.


Lol, that's all chemistry Aimless. I guess you might see some in biochem as well.

I was just searching for some 3-mercapto-2-methyl-benzoic acid. Bring back any memories of nomenclature?

i used to be an AP student in 9th grade all i remember is alkanes alkenes and alkynes. Oh and we did nomenclature. What pain had a lot of flash cards.

If you were an AP student, you should have continued. What happened?

Nah, RTP. I used to have a nice job with a large company down here...then they axed my group. They offered to move us to the Upper Providence area, but none of us took them up on the offer. So now I'm still in RTP trolling the D3 forums instead of discovering the next best drug. Lol.

@aimless

That was a solid edit/delete.

However, I'm pretty sure none of the PhD types were challenged by school at that level either. IMO slog your way through HS as best you can, bored as you are, and put yourself in position for the challenge to come later. I love working at a place where I'm not always the smartest guy in the room. You might too. That ain't happening in landscaping.

About to graduate with bs in accounting then onto the CPA exam!
I write insurance and portfolio risk analysis software for a big evil bank.
I have sep accounts and own sizable capital assets including real estate. I think you guys are wasting ur time in class. It aint what u make its what u save. I save a lot.


How is school a waste of time? You have to earn to save.

Not everyone can live off capital gains like you can.
Hedge fund manager. I find the AH economy fascinating.

@aimless

maybe a little more diplomatic, thus:

"waste of time" = "not for me"

I was part of a drug discovery team that will have a treatment for melanoma on the market this year. That's pretty special. It's what I like to do. Not a waste of time.

But that might not be what you want to do. And that's fine as well. To each their own...
