    Rice isn't really that risky, it's mainly if you let it cool and only partially reheat it. As for milk, so long as it's in date and doesn't smell funny, it'll be absolutely fine. Especially given that milk that's past its sell by date isn't especially harmful, it goes sour and unpalatable long before it's dangerous.

    Trust me, I'm a biologist
    ah right cheers, that's good to know

    Rice is often colonized with Bacillus cereus, which can cause vomiting. When cooled, it forms inert spores, which reactivate when you warm it. Unless you heat it very thoroughly, the reactivated pathogen can cause nasty sickness.
    I've eaten cold rice before :dontknow: (I'm assuming warming up in your stomach counts). I won't anymore :tongue:

    Nah, cold rice, like leftovers and rice salads and things are fine, so long as they've been refrigerated. It's partial reheating that's a bit iffy

    I have this odd feeling now that I don't want to study chemistry, having increasingly developed an interest in Aeronautical Engineering.

    I wonder if Imperial College will let me transfer on to such a competive course if I get the grades to meet my offer for the Chemistry masters course.

    Aww, don't hate me, please. :p:

    I should be visiting it in a few weeks (really need to book tickets nowish), but it's looking to be high on the list. My main concern is that it's a bit of a tiny, tiny town, but my friend's brother who is there apparently enjoys it, so it can't be too bad. Don't know about insurance at the moment.
    St Andrews is a lovely town, but you do really need to visit for yourself to see if you could live there. When I visited, I loved it as nice place for a holiday, but I knew there was no way I could live there for four years.

    Come to Edinburgh. We're epic here.

    Hey gays, how are you? I had an alright time at a party last night, although I drank rather too much and spent a while with friendly Mr Bucket. Also I had the somewhat disheartening feeling of waking up in a room with three couples. :mad: Somebody buy me a boyfriend, please.

    Ah, was wondering why I've been fine all this time. Someone told me a while ago to be terrified of leftover rice, but I decided to continue on the I'm-still-alive-so-meh front. I mainly re-eat rice cold, though.

    What's the LGBT stuff like in Edinburgh? Also, if I were planning to visit St Andrews and Edinburgh in my Easter holiday (next three weeksish), what would be a good itinerary, bearing in mind I have a six-hour train journey from London? :cool:

    In my house we have a funky thing like a metal teabag, but we don't really brew anything from leaves. The other suggestions are probably more helpful above. :p:

    Email them! Better do it early early, just in case; I asked to change from EEE to physics(at Imperial too) and they said that I should contact them in august but they seemed to say it was possible, they just wanted to make sure there was enough space(physics seemed to be extremely competitive this year at Imperial seeing the Imperial forum). Or maybe you could secure *amazing* grades and then email then in august?
    Also I have to admit that Aero seems very interesting :p:
    good luck

    Edinburgh has loads and loads of LGBT stuff. There's lots of gay bars, and multiple clubs if that's you're kind of thing.

    If I were coming up to visit both, I'd probably try to get a train that gets into Edinburgh mid-afternoon, and then spend the afternoon and the next day or two (depending on how much time you've got) going round Edinburgh. Then I'd get a train up to St Andrews (well, to Leuchars, and then a bus from Leuchars) and spend maybe a day there? There's honestly not much to see. Are you coming up for open days?

    There are some 'visiting days' at St Andrews, where they'll give you a tour and stuffs if you tell them you're coming. Edinburgh doesn't seem to have anything organised, but I might just have a look round the uni buildings anyway. Cheers for the advice.

    If you want, I can give you a tour round Edinburgh uni; my student card should let me into buildings and stuff. When are you gonna be up here?

    It's good to know I'm not alone. :hugs:

    Yeah I'll email them at the start of next week probably. What's worrying me is the thought of the Chemistry department withdrawing my offer, cause I've started considering aero.

    Worse still, I only have a A grade in maths, not an A*, and I might me too late to enter myself for a pure maths module resit

    Were quite a few trying to change course at IC actually

    I don't think they can withdraw your offer; though at the same times I can't be bothered to read the whole UCAS guidelines...But the Mech Eng Department couldn't seem to care less that I asked the physics department a change as I still got an offer.

    In regards to your grade I'm sorry to say that it may harm your chances as I read somewhere that aero demanded extremely high requirements in math(A* for sure)... maybe you could do a STEP paper to impress them or a resit?(sry I don't know much about a-levels)
    but still dont lose hope
