    Probably less so. Due to the rate of inflation, compared to my salary changes over the past 6 years, I have less disposable income, and the price of commodities has risen more rapidly.

    I was in school in 2008 and now I'm out of school, unemployed and can't find a job in my field. I blame that on myself more than anything else because I did not select a degree with good job prospects. A BS in chemistry is of little use by itself. I plan on going back to school for medicine, but if that doesn't work out I would probably seek employment in China, which seems to have more opportunities in chemistry these days.

    Well if your'e up on your Organic Chemistry you could always liberate a 30 gallon drum of Methlymine, acquire a nice tube furnace, a nice boiling flask, a few other odds and ends and Cook Meth.

    I hear the P2P method is all the rage.

    Oh, and get a used Winnebago !!

    Methlymine smells like dead fish wrapped in Gym socks so you'll need to move out to a remote location to conduct your " experiments."

    Maybe I've been watching too much TV...

    Yes. But that isn't saying much.
