    Just joined!

    There are just endless esoteric words I'd have to spend ages digging in a textbook to find the meaning of without it. How's the BSc going?

    Eegh. You need a pressure washer and a case of carbonic acid.
    I just poured hot water on a bowl that's been literally festering in one of their rooms (male, might I add, just for emphasis on how DISGUSTING YOU GUYS ARE :p: ). I thought the water was really hot when a cloud of what I thought was steam came out of it.

    Turns out, the steam was actually spores from the mould. I evacuated the room.

    Our hoodies say 'Medics: Powered by Wikipedia' on them. I know a few people (including my boyfriend :awesome:) who went off on a rant of 'ohhh, you medics think you're so special... You don't stop to think that all courses use Wiki'...

    :rofl: I discovered what I presume is pseudomonas in massive quantities when I finally decided to look at my shower curtain with my glasses on. It was only after I started soaking it in boiling water and bleach that I realised that being in a non-ventilated space with it was probably hazardous... It's now in my flatmate's bathroom cos he's away

    The chaperone one is just odd. And slightly sleazy.

    So where are you planning to live, if not in your house?

    Good luck with that :p: especially with a group of busy insomniac students :p:

    There's always something nasty growing somewhere. My ex-boyfriend has mice in his house, and he's the most anal hygeinic person I know.

    It's funny though, on his lab project for his iBSc, all his mice have died. Including the controls, yet he can't get rid of the mice from his house. I don't think he was particularly pleased when he called me to rant about the lab project failings and my advice was just to use the infestation in his home. I'm not a very sympathetic person, clearly.

    Awesome my flatmate's mum came and cleaned our bathroom for us once. :p: I think before that we definitely had some nasty stuff growing.

    You haven't heard that figure of speech or don't have money to spend?
    It means - I think that our cleaner is worth the money they cost... even though I think I probably clean more thoroughly the trade-off of not spending my spare time doing it from scratch is worth it. Luxury!
