    Why? I hated immunology when we first approached it in 2nd year, but now at the end of my degree it's actually looks pretty interesting.
    Because I hate immunology :p:

    College has access but not for the last 3 years, wierd subscription, or they just don't want us to learn new stuff...To be fair though, judgeing by the impact factor, its not going to rock the world...

    So, some SAS folk and a diplomat got nabbed, I'm not convinced that a goup of armed special forces chaps just went down that easily. It all seems just too conveniant. Am I being cynical to think we are helping the rebels and this was diliberate to show Gadaffi that there are assets on the ground?

    I think it's part of the stratega designed to help the public lose some of the confidence and faith that they have in medical practitioners.

    Doctors etc consistently come top, or near top, of the list of the most trusted professions and those *******s in Government don't like it one jot.

    Why would the government like trained profesionals? It only reminds them how they're not qualified for their own jobs

    I don't believe those surveys one bit. For instance journalists come consistently near the bottom, but episodes like the MMR scare prove that people trust journalists more than doctors.

    But not gullible enough to believe doctors over journalists?

    You guys must have heard about the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. Anyone believe that sort of stuff has one jot of credibility? It's fine for a bit of fun... I guess, if you're into that sort of thing. But that's as far as it should go.

    My uni is holding some careers session/MBTI workshop. This is an actual quote:

    Here is an opportunity that will help you to better understand your personality and your preferences which in turn could influence your decisions about your future choice of career.
    I can't believe an institution like Imperial (or Oxbridge, UCL etc or any other academic/research institute) seems to be sponsoring this rubbish as something scientific. Next they'll have ****ing Astrology Workshops.

    This stuff has already been discredited. And they want potential suckers students to pay £5 for the privilege.

    I want to actually complain.

    Really quick question that needs a quick answer. What's the function of palmaris longus? Is it a vestigial muscle like plantaris in the leg? I'm assuming it is since it's apparently missing ~15% of the population.....

    Thanks
