    If my back doesn't get better by tomorrow morning I will not be going to Uni 'cos I can barely fucking move.

    Depends on the size of the effect and the amount of variance.

    Like if you were testing the safety of a drug, and your sample size was 10 in the control and experimental groups

    And then everybody in the experimental group got hives and nobody in the placebo group did

    Yeah, 10 was probably enough.

    But if you're like "hey, we see 5% more activity in an area of the brain the size of a peanut on an fMRI in one group but our variance is 40%" then n=10 is likely going to be way too low.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    There is something you can do. I mean, it may require many days and possibly weeks of pleading/phone calls with numerous members of advisory boards, heads of departments, etc, but I assure you, dates like that are pretty arbitrary by and large. Is there a faculty member that likes you particularly well in the department? Perhaps the teacher you didn't fail with? Having a faculty member speak on your behalf is always a good thing. Your advisor has to deal with like 100 people a day, they have no patience or time to remedy your problems.

    Burns Supper has a rather complicated order of events:

    Start of the evening
    Guests gather and mix as in any informal party.

    Host's welcoming speech
    The host says a few words welcoming everyone to the supper and perhaps stating the reason for it. The event is declared open.
    All of the guests are seated and grace is said, usually using the Selkirk Grace. The Selkirk Grace is a well-known thanksgiving said before meals, using the Lallans Lowland Scots language. Although attributed to Burns, the Selkirk Grace was already known in the 17th century, as the "Galloway Grace" or the "Covenanters' Grace". It came to be called the Selkirk Grace because Burns was said to have delivered it at a dinner given by the Earl of Selkirk.

    The Selkirk Grace

    Some hae meat and canna eat,
    And some wad eat that want it;
    But we hae meat, and we can eat,
    And sae let the Lord be thankit.

    The supper then starts with the soup course. Normally a Scottish soup such as Scotch Broth, Potato Soup or Cock-a-Leekie is served.

    Entrance of the haggis


    Addressing the haggis
    Everyone stands as the main course is brought in. This is always a haggis on a large dish. It is usually brought in by the cook, generally while a piper plays bagpipes and leads the way to the host's table, where the haggis is laid down. He/she might play 'A man's a man for a' that', 'Robbie Burns Medley' or 'The Star O' Robbie Burns'. The host, or perhaps a guest with a talent, then recites the Address To a Haggis

    Address To a Haggis

    Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face,
    Great chieftain o' the puddin-race!
    Aboon them a' ye tak your place,
    Painch, tripe, or thairm:
    Weel are ye wordy o' a grace
    As lang's my arm.


    The groaning trencher there ye fill,
    Your hurdies like a distant hill,
    Your pin wad help to mend a mill
    In time o' need,
    While thro' your pores the dews distil
    Like amber bead.


    His knife see rustic Labour dicht,
    An' cut you up wi' ready slicht,
    Trenching your gushing entrails bricht,
    Like ony ditch;
    And then, O what a glorious sicht,
    Warm-reekin, rich!


    Then, horn for horn, they stretch an' strive:
    Deil tak the hindmaist! on they drive,
    Till a' their weel-swall'd kytes belyve,
    Are bent like drums;
    Then auld Guidman, maist like to rive,
    "Bethankit" hums.


    (auld Guidman = the man of the house, rive = tear, i.e. burst)
    Is there that o're his French ragout
    Or olio that wad staw a sow,
    Or fricassee wad mak her spew
    Wi' perfect scunner,
    Looks down wi' sneering, scornfu' view
    On sic a dinner?


    Poor devil! see him ower his trash,
    As feckless as a wither'd rash,
    His spindle shank, a guid whip-lash,
    His nieve a nit;
    Thro' bloody flood or field to dash,
    O how unfit!


    But mark the Rustic, haggis fed,
    The trembling earth resounds his tread.
    Clap in his wallie nieve a blade,
    He'll mak it whistle;
    An' legs an' arms, an' heads will sned,
    Like taps o' thristle.


    Ye Pow'rs wha mak mankind your care,
    And dish them out their bill o' fare,
    Auld Scotland wants nae skinkin ware
    That jaups in luggies;
    But, if ye wish her gratefu' prayer,
    Gie her a haggis!



    At the line His knife see rustic Labour dicht the speaker normally draws and cleans a knife, and at the line An' cut you up wi' ready slicht, plunges it into the haggis and cuts it open from end to end. When done properly this "ceremony" is a highlight of the evening.

    Supper



    At the end of the poem, a Scotch whisky toast will be proposed to the haggis, then the company will sit and enjoy the meal. The main course is haggis, and is traditionally served with mashed potatoes (tatties) and mashed turnip (neeps). A dessert course, cheese courses, coffee, etc. may also be part of the meal. The courses normally use traditional Scottish recipes. For instance dessert may be cranachan or Tipsy Laird (whisky trifle) followed by oatcakes and cheese, all washed down with the "water of life" (uisge beatha) – Scotch whisky.
    When the meal reaches the coffee stage various speeches and toasts are given. In order, the core speeches and toasts are as follows.

    Immortal memory
    One of the guests gives a short speech, remembering some aspect of Burns' life or poetry. This may be light-hearted or intensely serious. The speaker should always prepare a speech with his audience in mind, since above all, the Burns' supper should be entertaining.
    Everyone drinks a toast to Robert Burns.

    Appreciation
    The host will normally say a few words thanking the previous speaker for his speech and perhaps commenting on some of the points raised.

    Toast to the Lassies
    This was originally a short speech given by a male guest in thanks to those women who had prepared the meal. However nowadays it is much more wide ranging, and generally covers the male speaker's view on women. It is normally amusing but should never be offensive, particularly bearing in mind that it will be followed by a reply from the "lassies" concerned.
    The men drink a toast to the women's health.

    Reply to the Toast to the Lassies
    This is occasionally (and humorously) called the 'Toast to the Laddies', and like the previous toast it is generally quite wide ranging nowadays. In it a female guest will give her views on men and reply to any specific points raised by the previous speaker. Like the previous speech this should be amusing but not offensive. Quite often the speakers giving this toast and the previous one will collaborate so that the two toasts complement each other.

    Other toasts and speeches
    These may follow if desired. It is not unusual to toast the locality or nation in which the supper is being held.

    Works by Burns
    After the speeches, there may be singing of songs by Burns -- Ae Fond Kiss, Parcel O' Rogues, A Man's a Man, etc—and more poetry -- To a Mouse, To a Louse, Tam O' Shanter, The Twa Dugs, Holy Willie's Prayer, etc. This may be done by the individual guests or by invited experts. It goes on for as long as the guests wish and may include other works by poets influenced by Burns, particularly poets writing in Scots.

    Closing
    Finally the host will wind things up, calling on one of the guests to give the vote of thanks, after which everyone is asked to stand, join hands, and sing Auld Lang Syne which brings the evening to an end.

    There is something you can do. I mean, it may require many days and possibly weeks of pleading/phone calls with numerous members of advisory boards, heads of departments, etc, but I assure you, dates like that are pretty arbitrary by and large. Is there a faculty member that likes you particularly well in the department? Perhaps the teacher you didn't fail with? Having a faculty member speak on your behalf is always a good thing. Your advisor has to deal with like 100 people a day, they have no patience or time to remedy your problems.

    I'll try to speak with the really cool Neuroscience professor/adviser I know, and also the post-doc I work with and possibly the professor who runs the lab.

    I'm awful at these things.
