    Hi guys
    I was going to go to medical school (as a matter of fact, my interview was today) but then I got cold feet and didnt go. It just takes to long and I am not dedicated enough so spend all that time in school.
    the next obvious choices are pharmacy and optometry.
    both fields seem pretty saturated.
    I was wondering what you guys think? which one would I enjoy more, if I enjoy math, technology, and SEO?
    which one offers more security? Job security and having a steady source of income is very important to me.
    Please respond only if you live in the US (especially california)
    if you are in another country, the situation in your country may be completely different.

    I think Pharmacy, supposed to be about a 25% increase in need for Pharmacists between now and 2020.

    Definitely pharmacy. Three reasons:
    1: Everyone needs pills of some sort all the time, so you'll always have a job.
    2: Pharmacy requires some serious math to determine i.u., mg., ml. etc, in addition to physics.
    3: a Pharmacist gets paid more than an optician.

    I used to work at a pharmacy doling out the pills, its crazy, and the pharmacist was paid 10 times more than the store manager was.

    I just memorialized Bartman's memory, by giving him the Rep+ he never got when he was alive.

    RIP http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/search.php?searchid=3121879&pp=. There's no one big enough to fill your surgical glove, and you are sorely missed.

    Well, some folks say that he died of autoerotic asphyxiation, while others say that he was taken up into heaven by the rapture. One member is certain that Bartman is with Elvis now, onboard the mothership on a transgalactic mission to Fronkgloria V (outside the Plaark Nebulon). But truthfully I think that's the least likely explanation, because he left without taking his Star Trek: The Next Generation Action Figure Collection, and he would never leave earth without that.

    I have my own private theory, that I'm rather reluctant to share, however since you ask I've thought perhaps the time is right to open Pandora's Box and let-loose the most dangerous bit of information since Julian Assange took off his condom, which is:

    I think Bartman got laid.

    Yep. I think he finally did it, and not with any barnyard animals, either, but with a real-life, flesh & blood woman who's not his mother OR his sister. I think Bartman got a girlfriend, and has found a new purpose in life, which is servicing her vagina, and so now he doesn't have time to bestow his worldly vision upon us any longer, and has abandoned us to fend for ourselves.

    So yes, Virginia, Bartman IS still alive I think, whether it be out there wrapped in the infinitely expanding blanket of cold white stars, or with his face encased between the hairy and sweaty loins of a retired female sumo wrestler, we may never know. All we can do is to live each day, one day at at time, without him, and hope someday that he comes back to us once again.
