How many of your high school teachers' names can you remember?

It just occurred to me I can only recall my biology teacher who was rather ~infamous~ and my ap english language teacher who was cool, but even her I had to think about it for a minute. I've only been out for five years, geez.

Elementary school, I remember my 3rd grade teacher and just remembered my first grade teacher's name. Middle school, I remember liking my 6th grade english teacher but can't even begin to remember her name.

The nutrition fairy offers to grant you a wish. From now on, one food of your choice will supply you (and only you) with complete nutritional value. You don't have to eat only that food, but if you do, you will be maximally healthy, and able to maintain an optimal weight. Which food do you choose?

Alcohol and blood tests?

So, tomorrow I have a blood test for my insurance company where they'll do a basic biometrics screening. I've been told to fast for 12 hours and not drink alcohol for 24 hours. I had been hoping to drink anyway because I'm going out tonight. What is the possible negative impact of drinking beforehand(glucose, maybe?) and is the full 24 hours really necessary?
