General Off-Topic Board / Re: Today's random lyrics

There's a little black train that's coming, coming down the track,
 you gotta ride that little black train, but it ain't gonna bring you back.

You may be a barroom gambler, and cheat your way through life,
 you can't cheat that little black train or beat this final ride.

You silken barroom ladies, dressed in your worldly pride,
 you gotta ride that little black train, it's coming in tonight.

Your million dollar fortune, your mansion glittering white,
  you can't take it with you, when the train rolls in tonight.

Get ready for your savior, and fix your business right,
 you gotta ride that little black train to make this final ride.

There's a little black train that's coming, coming down the track,
 you gotta ride that little black train, but it ain't gonna bring you back.

Piss-macro pale lagers in the lobby?  Or any real beer?

Yes, and no.  Some Sam Adamsesses, but those went fast.

But free, and plentiful, and right there in the school.  And the Clark Street Ale House is close.

Wasn't sure it was never quite clear
What the hell was happening all around here
Never seemed to make much sense
All that fuss for just a lack of common sense

The best part to life it seemed
The best part of life was a dream
The best part to breakin' up
Is when I'm wakin' up to see
Reality never lives up to all that it used to be
Never seemed quite what it use to seem
Can not be all that it used to be
You're not as quiet as you used to be

What did you seem?
What did you mean?

I believe it's all a joke
but I don't think it's funny
There's a man at table five
he's calling me honey

Some people are born too late
Some people are born too soon
Some people are born to die
choking on their silver spoon

Maybe money can't buy everything
It looks like I'm never gonna know for sure
Maybe money can't buy happiness
Well neither can just being poor

Some people are born with luck
Some are born without it
Some people are born with faith
Some are born to doubt it

If I didn't go to bed afraid
About some bills that'll never get paid
I wouldn't be down at the laundry mat
Watching my work clothes fade

General Off-Topic Board / Wikipedia cited
« on: June 30, 2006, 10:43:26 AM »
For my first-ever Off-topic thread, a response to a funny from the poster formerly known as Nesnut (who I never chatted with but who made me laugh pretty regularly.)

"according to Mark Giangrande, editor of Tech Law Prof Blog, Westlaw indicates that 20 federal courts have cited Wikipedia in opinions"

http://lawprofessors.typepad.com/law_librarian_blog/2006/06/wikipedia_found.html

I think it would be hilarious to site Wikipedia in court-

"now your honor, as you can see, Wiki username "Sexybiatch4evr" argues that criminal intent without the means to commit a murder is not enough to  convict.  "ROFLhotstuffpwn3d" disagrees, arguing that the motive and opportunity were still present, thereby leaving a question of circumstantial evidence open in lieu of a conviction.  Perhaps "Sexxyeyezl8r2nite" sums it up best: "killing people is bad juju".

I rest my case. [nesnut sits, courtroom silent with awe/spite for wasting their time]

Financial Aid / Northwestern
« on: March 22, 2006, 02:03:33 PM »
For next year's applicants, I just wanted to post that I got a letter this week (March 20) from Northwestern saying they'd already given out all their grants.  It also asked to let them know by email if I still wanted to be considered for grants as withdrawals came in, and that if I did I'd hear about a final award before the seat deposit deadline (i.e. during the week of April 21.)  So - if they don't really want you, they might let you know in March.

I withdrew, so I don't have any info about other aid.  There are posts from last cycle from folks talking about getting their final aid offers (including institutional loans) later - in late March or early April, I think.

Non-Traditional Students / Cornell study on "The motherhood penalty"
« on: February 21, 2006, 09:50:09 PM »
I thought some other non-trads, 'specially mothers, would find this interesting.  I did consider posting it in general news discussion, but I thought it might get missed.

"Women with children are less likely to get hired and are paid less in starting salaries than similarly qualified fathers or women without children. This disparity often follows them throughout their careers."
http://www.azcentral.com/families/articles/0216momswork0216.html

Via a post at author Marrit Ingram's blog:
"Melissa Hart, an associate law professor at the University of Colorado who specializes in employment discrimination, correctly points out that while workers without children are concerned about the "special breaks" parents get on the job (such as time off with a sick child--because you know we get limitless amounts of that), we're all getting f****d over together when our employer feels (and is largely entitled by law) to our time, effort, energy, and labor around-the-clock."
