Chuck Norris can drive drunk.

The roads rearrange themselves for him.

How many times are you allowed to take the NY Bar Exam?

You really should only have to take it once.  From what I've heard, it's a cakewalk (75% pass rate).

I think your unique background is something to be stressed in applications.  Health-related law is an increasingly lucrative field.  Plus, I bet you'd make one mean ambulance chaser.  :D

I have to agree with the OP and others on this thread…either you are a loser or have some type of problem.  This board can and does handle off the side humor as well as off topic conversations that deal with anything that pops into a posters mind, however, your posts have been nothing but absurd.  I am not sure if this is some vain attempt to show that you are not a loser or if you are trying to post such outlandish pictures of girls clearly downloaded off the internet to prove your masculinity/sexuality.  No matter the reason, you have done nothing more than place your character into question by people all over the country.  I would say that most people use this site as a resource to discuss problems, ideas, or life at law school that seem to apply on every campus.  Those topics may not be interesting to all who are on the board but they are to the OP and those who respond.  I have found it frustrating to see one pose a serious question in search of advice and you place a picture of some girl that you have no affiliation with whatsoever in response.  It takes away from that person’s opportunity to get feedback or spread wisdom.  I look at the topic and then see if you have responded to it.  If you have and no matter my interest in the topic or any assistance I could gain/give to the post I skip it because you detract from the intent and purpose of this resource.  For that reason alone I agree with the others and hope that you will attempt to grow up.

I posted (note the past tense) pictures of beautiful women because I believe they aesthetically contributed to discourse.

Happiness, prestige, and even amount of spending money I have, is not fact moron. It is in the eye of the beholder. That is what everyone is trying to say. That is ok though, keep on thinking that the status of your school, job, and money you have is all that matters in life. Man, I feel bad for you at this point.

I can see what Ruskin saw in commoners like you.  The cliched "eye of the beholder" statement is nevertheless quite profound.  Unfortunately, it applies more precisely to beauty and to truly appreciate beauty, you must necessarily have wealth.  Wealth provides the leisure of contemplation which can appreciably improve the quality of one's life.  I'm sorry, but one's "school, job, and money" do matter--not ends in themselves, of course--but as a means to a more fulfilling life.

Probably.  But I'm not one of them.

To answer the title question, the best part about being an attorney is the thrill of cutting someone else down to size.  The money's nice as well.  Oh, also something about the rule of law and maintaining social order, etc.  ;D

Loverofwomen, get out of this bubble you live in and face reality. I don't know where you grew up or if you had any friends as a child, but most people I know would hardly consider a 24 year old attorney, making 65,000-70,000, poor and unprestigous. You have the nerve to call someone who is attending a tier 3/4 school a failure? The problem here is you are a social misfit who has probably never really even seen someone who has truly "failed" (dropped out of high school, substance abuse). Unambitious losers? I am 21 years old and will be attending law school next year, something I, as well as most people I know, consider to be extremely ambitious. The truth is loverofwomen, you represent a small, small, portion of the population that holds such feelings. Truth be told, people like you need to re-evaluate what is good in life, and consider how lucky we ALL are to be, where we are now.  

$65K should be spending cash, not your starting salary.  I frankly don't care what the people in your social circle consider prestige; if they are awed by the tallest of the pygmies, that's really not my concern.  Furthermore, whether or not a "small, small, portion of the population" agrees with me or not is irrelevant; perhaps you've heard of the bandwagon fallacy?  Citing more people who share your precious opinion doesn't suddenly transform it into fact.

I'm perfectly content to see things as they are, rather than relying on false comfort to avoid the specter of failure.  It keeps me motivated and probably will make more successful than any of your associates.  Sorry, but life is about the survival of the fittest; the self-deluded (like you) voluntarily excise themselves from the competition and ultimately, that just makes it easier for people like me.  So keep patting yourself on the back, slugger. 

But while you do, try learning to use the comma correctly.  Just a little helpful note from yours truly.
