*It's the simple things in life*

One of the things about being a university student, is that with a bit of luck and a little planning, there will be days where you will be able to sleep in. Something that I'm used to as well as desperately need since 7 hours of sleep seem insufficient for me.

Unfortunately then, with my internship, it means having to wake at 7 a.m. everyday while generally not being able to get to sleep before midnight. So waking up groggy everyday simply brings back bad memories of NS.

So it was with greatest pleasure that I ended up waking up at 1 p.m. today. Granted I missed Sunday morning cartoons but it was a trade-off worth making (not that there was any chance of me waking up early enough today anyways).

Anyway, for those upset by the lack of substantive blogging and for those who aren't simply interested in biology and theology, I'm afraid that you're just going to have to wait a little longer.

But for those actually seeking substance of matter on a Sunday morning, I point you to Skeptic's Circle. Note in particular the section on the ongoing saga of the HIV/AIDS denailist and the rebuttals put up. In particular, for those uninterested in the medical aspects (having been sufficiently persuaded by the wealth of evidence documenting the link between HIV and AIDS), consider the legal question of what liabilities (including and particularly with reference to criminal ones) should accrue to a mother, a spokeswoman for such denialist, who caused the death of her child because she refused to take the drugs that would prevent the transmission of the virus to her baby and then breastfed her thereby causing the virus to be transmitted to the child.

The child, Eliza Jane subsequently died from complications due to AIDS by way of a ear infection. Belief systems can kill sometimes, especially if they are false ones.

Peace.

Well, it's true that the skewed system tends to encourage insane competition for the 1st class and milder form of happy-go-luckiness for any other position.

Nevertheless, competition is stiff. Not just for academic grades but so-called resume building. But oddly enough, few people have CCAs...
