On Save Money With Hugs! And Generics

@TheDoctorsCompanion I think there is a difference in some things, especially when it comes to delivery mechanisms and buffering. I find that I have to check labels to make sure my medicine hasn't swapped in the more blood-ressure-friendly and less meth-friendly phenylephrine for my sweet, sweet pseudoephedrine. Nothing works besides the hard stuff for me.

On Save Money With Hugs! And Generics

@Tripleoxer It does! By alleviating symptoms (usually with painkillers, decongestants, antihistamines, and a sprightly touch of caffiene maybe). It won't help you get over a cold like say an antibiotic would help heal an infection, which I think is the confusion here.

On My No-Purchase November Adventure

@polka dots vs stripes I don't really understand that attitude. Sure, the future may see us using sea glass and cigarettes for currency, but NOT actively managing your retirement isn't going to help you if that doesn't happen.

On Alumni Giving Season

@szajic Which universities are those? I graduated from a quite old European university and I had a funds donation form sitting on my chair at graduation.

On Is Your Boss Springing for a Holiday Party

I have to give a shout-out to the lone rangers who are stuck with planning the holiday parties of industry, often with no support, crummy budgets, and constant criticism. I totally appreciate your efforts!

On You Can't Afford To Be Fat At Work

A particularly hateful version of the "professional image" excuse - there are some jobs a woman can't get unless she looks like a TV lawyer.
