Studying for the LSAT / Re: Breaks?
« on: June 09, 2004, 08:40:18 PM »
You CANNOT write on your test booklet or your scantron during the breaks.  This would get you in MAJOR trouble.  There is a 10-15 minute break after the 3rd section.  Just as an FYI, you get about a one minute break in between each section while the proctor reads instructions.  It really helps having that breather to up the concentration.

One thing that really shook me my first LSAT...yes I took it twice...was how long it takes to actually start.  Be prepared to be sitting in the room, checked in for at least an hour to an hour and a half before you test.  They're not kidding when they say all said in done, the LSAT will last you at leats 6 hours. 
Good luck!

You LOVE Fox News?  Yikes.  They take the same approach to news as they do to football.

I have to say, without being at all sarchastic...I am impressed that you think Fox is slightly conservative.  Because, as a liberal, I find it insanely right.  I mean no insults here.  The political spectrum is an amazing thing.  I think its way too conservative and it sounds like you don't find it conservative enough.  Although, w/ regard to the point about Fox having liberals...I think 9 times out of 10, they just bring liberals on to yell at them and beat on them. 

One point for conservatives: you don't have to YELL to be heard.

So, Jeremy...what news sources do you trust?  Or maybe you follow the lead of your conservative leader who says he doesn't like to read newspapers...they are too biased.  He gets his information for his advisors.  (I am sure his advisors aren't biased!   :D)  Poor Diane Sawyer had to keep a straight face when he said this in an interview. 

All anyone can do is read as many sources of information as they can and extrapolate what is happening in the world.  There are hundreds of books and articles on the CIAs subversive techniques in Latin American countries.

Afghanistan: yes, they are harboring terrorists and we linked them to 9-11.
Iraq: we have never proven that they now have WMD.  I agree w/ the earlier post that even your conservative leader has conceded to that.  We argued to the world that we had hard evidence that Iraq had WMD.  It was a lie, plain and simple.  Don't give me a speech either about the risks of faulty intelligence.  Through our own foreign assessments, we have determined that the greatest risks, in terms of actual countries, are Iran and Libya.  By your same logic, we should go in there and strike for "preventative measures."

It wasn't that Clinton didn't have the "balls" to go in (although I question that as being a reason for any military action.) it was that Republican leaders always have the audacity to go it alone.  I like how you highlighted that in the early 90s, Iraq violated the UN Sanctions.  So, let the UN take action.  We have no basis for going it alone.  NONE!

The question you need to ask yourself is do you feel safer now or before these military actions.  I felt much safer before your conservative leader had the nerve to call our actions over there a crusade.  Yeah, that's right...he did.

As a denizen of the world community, I suggest you stop and think a little more about the power of war and why so many Muslims and Middle Easterners in general hate us so much right now.  Why? Because the military is our answer to every question...especially when a Republican is in office. 

I am not saying I disagree w/ taking military action at any point in time.  However, we live in a unique time in global history.  We can develop international coalitions and work with the global community.  Instead, the US takes the "go it alone" method because we think that we have the right or role to run the world.  It is arrogant and embarassing.

I just want to take a 'lil time to disagree about the parking situation in San Fran.  It often can be HELL and it often can be expensive.  Of course, there are exceptions to every rule, but I have had a lot of experience trying to park in SF.  NIGHTMARES!!!  Literally there have been numerous times where it takes well over an hour to park. 

My bf's sister lives in SF right now.  She made it from November to February on the same tank of gas because she lives and works there.  It is always better to take public transport than a car in the city.  Otherwise, you will spend way more time parking.  Of course, if you want to leave the city a lot, which is doubtful because you won't have much time to, then you'll need a car.  Keep in mind if you want to leave a couple times, you're better renting a car.  It is much cheaper than paying high insurance premiums, getting your car broken into, and trying to drive around the city.  (Yes, my car has been broken into twice in SF.)  Hell, everyone I know has had their car broken into in SF.  Just a couple thoughts

As far as the Europe question?  I am rocking to Italy in a couple weeks.  We'll ultimately end up in Prague.  I am stoked as I have never been.  My thoughts exactly...this is the time to do it.  As a heads up for anyone who wants to go...ticket prices are a nightmare.
