I'm even giving Raleigh a little leeway with that one day in the whole summer. It's been warm, sure. Too warm to go shooting a whole lot. But, then again, it's summer

This is what we get for letting Republican dumb down the science curriculum.

I could be wrong but I'm not sure if there;s been more than 10-15 days over 90 here.

In all fairness, it did take me a full 6 years to get my Doctorate, but I had to publish a lot to help secure a tenure track position upon graduation rather than spending more years in a post-doc, plus my advisor was much more of a stickler on dissertation topics than others in the dept. Maybe I shouldn't feel too stupid

Yep, same here. Great days for the beach, mostly at around the 88-92 range. It's too bad it's another 2-3 hours from you. Then again, the blue ridge mountains are much more accessible for the cool winter months.

Hard to tell from your posts. I don't think you would have made it at my school.

Yeah, the NC beaches and outer banks are a haul. But I was used to driving to ECU and back all the time that its not that bad anymore.

But, last trip down to Charleston took all of 2.5hrs for me.

I doubt your hypothesis holds much water. If I'm teaching at a Big 3 triangle area school, chances are my degree is from a pretty decent place.

I know you like to believe you came from a really difficult and exclusive school. But, in all reality...no sale. Let me know when you're ready to compare sizes of our man meat.

It's doubtful that anyone using "LOL" came from any sort of exclusive school. But I have no other moniker for these particular universities, other than they are well known and easily recognized by just about every American.

If you're point is to antagonize...no sale.
