I think I consume a lot less fiction than a lot of us.  When I do watch tv and movies I find myself sometimes shocked at the way people (really actors) behave. "wow, DRAMA" I say to myself.  And then I realize yeah it IS drama. That's what fiction is eh?  And I remember learning in elementary school that without conflict there is no story.  It's man against man, man against the world, man against nature, man against self.  And I have no memory of where I heard this, maybe in school, maybe I read it somewhere… but someone said: all of the different variants of conflict all boil down to man against himself.  Let's say person against themself.  Somehow it seems true.  And today I thought, maybe that's how it is in real life drama too: always essentially person vs self?

look at all the rights we didn't get in '44.  I was shocked to find that in Germany and other countries they don't just let the poor go homeless.  Everyone in the country has the legal right to housing food medicine…  Wow. But did you know FDR wanted us to have similar security?

And the cost for such is an incredible amount of our liberty.

But you know what I don't really trust? What I've never actually trusted with any women I've been with? Her feelings.

If she approaches me pissed about something, my first reaction is "What's wrong?"

My typical second reaction? Before she even gets the opportunity to tell me what's wrong? "She's probably overreacting."

My typical third reaction? After she expresses what's wrong? "Ok. I hear what you're saying, and I'll help. But whatever you're upset about probably really isn't that serious."
After five months of marriage, eight months of being engaged, and another year of whatever the hell we were doing before we got engaged, I realized I don't trust my wife. I trust her opinions about important things. I trusted that she'd make a great...

WOW. Glad I didn't pick Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield.  This woman had no lapse in coverage. She just switched from parents plan to her own plan with the same company because she turned 26.  
Off-the-charts heartless behavior from Blue Cross Blue Shield.

That was arguably the main purpose of Obamacare, and went into effect last year.

OMG. that's so cute. The element with atomic number = 1 is  "Wasserstoff" auf Deutsch.  I love browsing biochem in German; you learn awesome things like: "Eis schwimmt auf Wasser".

Researchers say the milk is brimming with potential therapeutic agents, for babies and also possibly adults.

wish I could see that audit. 
Health insurance giant Blue Shield of California and state tax authorities both came under fire for not disclosing seven months ago a landmark decision taking away the insurer's tax-exempt status, which had been in place since 1939.

Story
Introduction
I'm interested in biomedical science, education, and making a meaningful contribution to the world.  I've taught biology and bioinformatics at the college level, have performed academic research and worked in biotech R&D.

I like camping, jogging, painting, crocheting, reading and learning new skills.  I practice a mostly vegan straight-edge lifestyle for compassionate and environmental reasons.
