$200 For a Bound Textbook That You Can't Keep?

dohzer Unread.... (252 comments)

If I only possessed my textbooks while studying at university, I would never have had the chance to read any of them.
University projects and laboratory work consumed any time I had for reading books, and the lecture notes sufficed.
Where the textbooks *have* come in handy is for revising topics years after graduating.

dohzer So it's a little different to Steam then? (183 comments)

You mean I can't join a game of Counter Strike: Source, team flash someone for 27 rounds until an admin shows up, then quit, change my name, rejoin and repeat? What's the point of playing then?

Research Suggests Pulling All-Nighters Can Cause Permanent Damage

dohzer Re: sounds implausible to me (144 comments)

But never in human history has the brain been more important. Perhaps a little damage back hundreds of years equates to a lot of damege in the modern era. Sleep deprivation to catch extra food at the expense of brain power may have been advantageous but brain wastage to play that new game may not be so beneficial.
