Kilts, yea or nay?  I'm of Scottish descent, I'm proud of it, and I know from a fact, by wearing a highland great kilt, that they're comfortable and functional.  What do you all think?Continue

Prospective Veterinarian (I need advice)

This is to anyone who may have already gone through the process of getting into vet school:I'm a junior in college desperately doing everything I can to build up hours of experience (mostly unpaid) in order to get into vet school.  My problem is that I don't have the economic security to be obtaining hours for no pay.  This puts me in the situation where I can only get minimal experience if I want to have money to pay for food, rent, insurance, etc...If anyone can tell me their own personal…See More

"Put in that persepective, yeah, that's pretty true, lol. Historically though, the kilt, as we know it, is a relatively modern invention, from the 18th century. Even great kilts are a modern invention. The wool blankets worn before the…"

Quote
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

What college freshmen should know

This is inspired by a post of Muir's about what he wants the kids to learn, but I wanted to make it specific to college students.  Because I'm brainstorming for a possible freshman-seminar class, and I'm interested in topics that are important to making educated citizens or at least will be stimulating -- each topic to take a week or two at most.  What do you wish you or yours had learned in college that wasn't covered in regular gen-ed or major? or just a fun topic you think would be of…See More
