If you were reading a 115 page PDF document, would you print it out or read it on the screen?

(I don't have a Kindle or anything like that, but it's heavily footnoted so would be hard to read on a Kindle anyway. I guess an iPad would be ideal but I don't have one of those either. Bummer.)

ETA: I have no working printer right now, and I reeeeally can't be fucked to go into town. How much would be a reasonable amount to offer a neighbour to cover the cost of ink if I print it at hers (she's a friend, she won't mind me asking)?

Group work ruins everything.

So I'm in a very small class of graduate students and we're working together on a group project. It's been a frustrating process because the professor is crazy and keeps changing things on us, and I've been out of town for a bit of it and missed a group meeting because I had another class. I thought I was doing okay, though, until one group member accidentally attached some private emails to an email for the whole group.

I admittedly totally dropped the ball on an aspect of the project. We were supposed to send our surveys to a group member, which I knew, but 9 yesterday morning, which I did not know (that was discussed at the meeting I missed, when I asked a classmate what I missed, she said, "not much"). I sent them way late and I apologized profusely (and sincerely, I hope, I feel really bad about it). In the emails, one group member says I don't seem like much of a team player and she shouldn't send the final tally to me (which is essential for the final papers we all have to write individually) because "respect is given to those who give it."

I'm really upset by this. Do I pretend that I never saw the email? Because everyone else in the group did... And I don't want people to think I'm not a team player or that I don't respect the rest of my team. I didn't realize I'd been coming across that way and I'm honestly kind of baffled. And upset. And feeling sick. I want to apologize, but I'm not sure if I should draw attention to the email and... what do I do? :(


Would it be unfortunate for a girl/woman to have the initials SLT? My favourite girl name is Skye and I'm rather fond of the middle name Lynne. Last name will start with a T. Not pregnant btw, just merely curious what people think.

Have you seen Jurassic Park? If so, how old were you when you saw it?
Would you recommend it to others?

*edit* ok, ok, you have all helped my boyfriend prove his point that i should finally see Jurassic Park. He thanks you.
