I am also Jewish, but I converted so the religious aspect is important but, not essential.  I accepted every aspect of my chosen faith, but that also means the intellectual questioning that goes along with it.  Since I am not likely to have kids I probably wont have to make this decision.  HOWEVER, I can't predict the future.  My decision would be a very difficult personal descision made within my family.

As for the asthetic arguement.  Its not pretty, but as for the more sensitive.  I have to disagree.  My ex-boyfriend was uncut and damn that boy could go on if he wanted to and he attributed it the extra skin dulling the sensation.  Although we could get a quickie in if necessary...he just had to concentrate a little harder.  ;)

Freinds sounds like some sort of skin condition.
"Oh I can't go out tonight I have a nasty case of the freinds on my back."

 :D  I could resist. Sorry. :-*

Personally my preference is gay men as friends.  Great fashion sense, we get to play the batting for who's team game, and usually wont end up going for the same people.

I'm not angry just jealous.   ;D  Well, I am angry at people who lie to get aid they don't need, like in tkd's story.  I would hope that this is a rare circumstance but....the cynical side of me doesn't think so.

Oh how I wish I had rich parents that showered me with money instead of love... ::)

I plan on transfering to a Barnes and Noble in the Chicago area and working a max of 10 hrs a week.  If only to get 30% off my textbooks but I also enjoy working there.  On the flipside I am not afraid to quit if it turns out to be too much.

3. I have met plenty of people who are willing to place the blame for a failure on something other than themselves, yet I have never met anyone who is willing to give the credit to something completely out of their control for their individual success. With all the talk about how the LSAT is so predictive of ones success in law school, or intelligence, or right to be at a certain school, no one I know has ever said to me “I got an A in Civ Pro because of my LSAT score.”

Ah yes, lack of personal resposnibility.  Does anyone else notice an increase in this in all aspects of life?  Why do people blame others for their failures and mistakes but, wont acknowledge help when they succeed?  Just curious.

I also just want to say congratulations to everyone this year.  I'd like to think the hard part is over, but we know that's furthest from the truth.  Good luck to all!

I have thought about going a la Legally Blonde and getting a REALLY girly suit maybe pink or a purple sweater with faux fur...

I own and wear both of those things. jsia

You have a purple sweater with faux fir??  That's awesome.  No seriously.  I am jealous!

I did read the article and I could spend the time to in-depth research the people named in the article as well as the writer.  But you see I use this board as a distraction at work.  Have you noticed that for the most part my posts are between the hours of 9am and 6pm and only Mon- Fri.  No, there is no reason that you would.  My point is I don't have the time(nor the inclination at this point) to do the research to refute the accusations.  As an educated individual.  I am partial to the findings of the thousands of scientists that are a part of the IPCC(Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change).  Note the term they use.  Climate Change.  Are any scientist 100% certain what the climate is going to do?  No they would be bad scientist to persume with 100% certainty that anything will happen.  Are they fairly certain that there is an increase to histroical levels of CO2?  Yes.   Are they also fairly certain that beginning with the  industrial revolution those levels have begun to increase?  Yes.  Ergo, are they fairly certain that humans are causing the increase of CO2?  Yes.

The only people who want to keep their head in the sand are those profiting from industries that rely on fossil fuels and greenhouse gas emmissions.  Do I understand why they feel this way?  Sure.  Do I blame them?  You bet I do, but I also blame myself. We're all at fault and until we can start taking personal resonsibility for our actions we're screwed. 

As for the putz comment. I'm Jewish and I have lost of Jewish friends.  Putz, schmuck, oy vey.  These words are in my vernacular.  I really had no intention of echoing Julie ::shudder::

paper pants or a mu-mu 

Oh oh  maybe Some Seattle Grunge wear...just so people know that I'm not a local.

I have thought about going a la Legally Blonde and getting a REALLY girly suit maybe pink or a purple sweater with faux fur...

Another thought is to hit the bookstore before classes and get an entire outfit adorned with the schools name and logo...just to make sure people know where you go.

ok I'll stop now.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: How much are you spending an apartment next year?
« on: June 14, 2006, 05:28:48 PM »
I pay over $1375/mo for a one bedroom, 2 bath condo at the beach.  (One parking spot, water, sewer, pest control included).

Pest control???  Really? Shouldn't the apartment be pest free?  Makes it sound like a monthly problem.  Reason enough for me to stay north where the pest DIE in the winter cus its cold.

Canada Free Press....I love the names partisan(both sides) use  they crack me up.
A nice assortment of aging white men.  A few women thrown in for good minorities and I'm fairly confident that if you looked into the credentials of their "investigative" journalist you'd find most lack any journalism credentials and most have conservative/industry backgrounds.  As for the article itself...

The first scientist it quotes: Prof. Bob Carter.  I give you one  of many websites that came up:

I am too tired and annoyed to look up the rest but, when you want to debunk global climate to a scientific paper that no one understands...that way we can't do the research to see what a putz you are.
