What I learned in biostat lab

Basically, that I don't know enough biostat. Holy crap.

In lab, you partner up with someone who hopefully is a good enough friend not to hate you when you don't know anything, calculate some problems on a DOS program and then stumble through your explanation until someone mercifully stops you as you present to a facilitator.

On the plus side, going back over my notes, I'm getting the material better, and lest anyone think stuff is all uber-difficult, I suspect my dearth of stat knowledge has something to do with both my innate badness at math and perhaps more, my decision to spend pretty much the entirety of the weekend at the beach. D'oh!

Next task up is acclimatizing to hotter and hotter temperatures in my apartment to try and whittle down my astronomical electric bill.
