General Off-Topic Board / Clipse's "Hell Hath No Fury"
« on: December 08, 2006, 04:00:06 PM »
Does anyone have this album?  It is getting very good reviews, and I've already seen it on a couple top ten lists.

I'm not really into rap though.  It always seems like I buy it, like it, then never listen to it. 

General Off-Topic Board / Sportsman of the Year
« on: December 04, 2006, 12:45:33 PM »
Sports Illustrated just named Dwyane Wade Sportsman of the Year, presumably for leading the Heat to an NBA title.  What do you think?  Did Wade deserve it?

Personally I think Roger Federer should have won, and he should have won unanimously.  He is the best tennis player ever, and he is currently dominating his sport.  No one can come close.

And if you have other choices, shout them out.  You also don't have to just pick men.  Women (or animals: Barbaro) could win as well.   

I honestly used to think that I would be better off with someone more passive who was sweet and homely, but recently I've been feeling the watch-what-you-wish-for vibe.  I'm used to assuming that people I deal with are rational and self-interested, but so many of these bimbo-types are just the opposite--dependent and irrational.  While I do have power over these passive, sweet, homely girls, is that something I actually want?  I'm not so sure.

But what is the alternative?  Assertive and independent women?  That is kind of scary too.  Would they think they were better than I was?  I also don't think I've ever been turned on by anyone because of their intellect either; this would be a concern.

So help me out people.  Who should I be looking for?

He was a great director.  I really liked "Nashville."

General Off-Topic Board / Album you have listened to most?
« on: November 12, 2006, 05:03:30 PM »
So I see a lot of threads about sex, current events, sports, etc, but I don't see any about music. 

I'd be curious to know what people think is the album (or song, or comparable classical music piece) that they have listened to THE MOST in their lives.  It doesn't necessarily have to be the best piece of music ever, but just the one that you think you have listened to the most. 

The album I've listened to all the way through the most number of times is probably "Bringing It All Back Home," by Bob Dylan, followed by The Beatles's "Rubber Soul," and "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea," by Neutral Milk Hotel. 

Any others want to share?  I'm also looking for some new music to get, so if anyone has any good recommendations, let me know. 

General Off-Topic Board / Love at first sight?
« on: November 05, 2006, 04:57:14 PM »
OK, so I was curious about this after watching an episode of Sex and the City.  That's not too bad, right?

Personally I don't believe in love at first sight.  I've felt a particular attraction to many people upon first meeting them, but I would classify that as more lust than love.  I've never really been in love though, so maybe I will know it when it happens?

I'm serious, I really don't know what I should think about this issue.  On the one hand, I am uncomfortable with the government having the power to take one of its citizens' lives.  On the other hand, the government already puts people in jail for life anyway, denying them any freedom.  If the government can do that, why shouldn't it be able to kill someone?

Law School Admissions / fee waivers from law school fairs?
« on: October 23, 2006, 08:26:35 PM »
Has anyone had success getting fee waivers from reps at a law school fair?  There is a law school fair at my school in a few days, and I'm wondering if it is worth it to wait to send out apps for another few days in order to maybe get some fee waivers.  Thoughts? 

Politics and Law-Related News / Scalia vs Strossen
« on: October 15, 2006, 10:37:36 PM »
Scalia and ACLU president had televised debate.  They don't delve into technical legal issues, but some good philosphical stuff being discussed for those who like that sort of thing.

There is a link to the video about halfway down at
