    Based on the level of specification she was looking for, quite literally, one of five people. At that point, knowing where they 'hang out' is called stalking.

    Uhhhh….no. Statistics are used as evidence all the time in science, law, business, medicine, economics, and education - to name a few.

    Statistics by themselves are just collections of data. Statistics analyzed against a premise can be evidence if they are of significance to the matter at hand and the statistic has a tendency to make a conclusion more or less probable.

    Confirmation Bias and the TSF are misapplicaitons of logical processes; they are errors in logical reasoning. When someone uses statistics in their argument (especially those developed in a controlled, peer-reviewed experiment) it does not invalidate their argument, it enhances their argument!

    No eviction powers. I make sure each building is up to all the fire codes and whatnot. That everything works, I either do or oversee all projects, that sort of thing.

    No, I am the Maintenance Director for them. I was also just hired to the same for 5 more buildings.

    That what's true?

    That theory?

    I can't be bothered reading it through.

    It's boring.

    The big question is the nature of your costs. Labs can be hugely capital-intensive, or bare-bones, depending upon what you do and your expected volumes.

    Here in the US, college-educated workers are very expensive. My total compensation (including benefits and perks) are about $85k/year, and that's just working 36-40 hours per week. As a result, hospitals readily spend millions on equipment, so they have to hire less of me.

    Example? With a $2000 oil-immersion microscope, $400 centrifuge, a few hundred plastic tubes, glass slides, and a $3000 automated stainer, I can crank through about 30-40 patients worth of blood/bodily fluids in about 8 hours. We charge about $150 per patient for those do the math. I imagine your poor masses can't pay quite that much, but it can still be cost-effective.

    Give me about $2 million worth of robotic hematology analyzers (three high-volume analyzers), however, and I can crank through about 800 patients in the same amount of time.

    If you can find skilled med techs in India on the cheap, having lots of people running tests the old-fashioned way (scopes, reagents, test tubes, etc) would be more cost-efficient. But you'll still need people trained to draw the blood, analyze it, verify the result, and deliver the results to the patient/doctor. Not to mention some sort of legal expert to ensure your laboratory meets all government regulations (we get inspected by the government a few times per year, India's probably worse that way).


    If you can afford the startup capital, manage to clear the legal hurdles, and find skilled's very profitable. The two largest private US laboratory corporations, Quest Diagnostics and Lab Corp, are behemoths. Quest Diagnostics hires 43000 people and makes $10 billion in revenue.

    The first two aren't really potent or maybe drugs necessarily, but are precursers to dopamine. L-dopa is often given to people w/ Parkinson's, but you could find an herbal version of it at a lot of health food/supplement stores.

    The phenylpiracetam is kind of like piracetam w/ speed (a little bit), but it seems to work better if taken occasionally.

    Have you tried l-dopa and/or l-tyrosine for dopamine? How about phenylpiracetam?

    I look at blood, piss, and shit all day in the hospital lab. If it can be removed from the human body with a needle or vacuum pump, I can check it for disease.

    No but many others do... Why would you possibly want to anyway? If you suspect tampering with your Cellular connection, the best you can do is research it properly to make sure you are not jumping to conclusions, write a report with technical details and send it to your provider. If they don't action it or care then consider finding another one. Breaking the law by making a Base Station outside of a research environment helps no one including yourself.
