Re: “Dear girls, chill the fuck out

O.P. - not to worry. It will be over soon enough, and if you want it to, life does get better after high school. Find your friends, stick with them, keep your head down, and if you have to, use a dating website. The shallow ones are usually pretty easy to spot.
Best of luck,

Re: “Transaction tyranny

What I don't understand is why they don't make a debit machine with _two_ magnetic read heads - one for each side of the card. That way it wouldn't matter which way you swipe it. We're talking about 20's/30's era technology here - it couldn't be expense.

Re: “Anxiety: Go away

OP - I'm obviously not a doctor, but chances are that you have General Anxiety Disorder - a condition with which I was diagnosed myself. You don't need to see a psychologist, but you need help. If you're missing work and getting sick, this has become a problem. The first step to take is to go see your doctor. Your doctor will listen, completely non-judgementally and will know what to do for your specific situation. My doc told me that more important than naming my problem was to start getting better, and with a few different treatments and a lot of work on my part, I _am getting better. The road to recovery is long, but it is taken in bite-sized steps that you can handle. Remember, your quality of life is worth the effort being put in by you, with a little help along the way. I strongly encourage you to take that first step.
If you (or anyone else reading this) want to talk about this further, please contact me at madscience at mac dot com. Again, I'm not qualified to say anything - just a friendly ear who wants to see people move on from their anxiety. Good luck, OP!

When you move the cursor onto a Farmville message, a little "Hide" link will pop up in the right top corner of the message. Click it to block Farmville updates from all friends.

Re: “The sandwich shop on Spring Garden

After 10pm, try Freeman's on Quinpool or Argyle, or the Venus on Barrington.

Re: “Whut Up With Mono? - Spector's in Jail!

Bouncing the two stereo tracks down to one would be the way it's done these days. However, at the time, since stereo was a novelty, the stereo and mono mixes were done separately - mono first, stereo second. George Martin and the band took their time on the mono mixes, but the stereo mixes were done in as little as fifteen minutes, largely without input from the band.

Have a listen if you can find them - it's more than just a little more of this and a little less of that. The sound quality is actually better, though this may have something to do with the fact that the mono mixes were only available (until recently) on record. The original CDs released in the 80s were a little lifeless.
