I think it's rather obsessive to actually DO all the work for all of your classes (or what you think the work will be, anyway) before the classes even start. I mean this girl got the actual casebooks and presumably the syllabi so she knew what was assigned last year, and was actually doing all that work before classes started. What if she got different profs, or the prof changed the  book, or changed the course around a lot? She'd have done all that work and have to start all over again. Doesn't seem like a good use of time.  General studying of primers, outlines, etc. on the other hand is a different concept altogether.

PLS said to "study smart" not "study hard". And I believe that.

News Discussion / Re: IP Discussed in "Scientific American"
« on: May 26, 2004, 09:10:41 PM »
If anybody is interested, the magazine "Scientific American" has an article in the June 2004 issue that mentions a book coming out this fall outlining the nature of the patent system and the ramifications legislative acts concerning it. It's called "Innovation and its Discontents: How our Broken Patent System is Endangering Innovation and What to Do About it". Granted it's a one page article but it looks like there will be more to come on this topic and it could be an interesting glimpse into what those who are interested in IP law might be facing in  the future.

Incedentally (did I spell that right?), the authors are both economists.

Wow, good stuff, thanks for lookcing out.  Will need to get a copy of the article for my leisure reading.

Yup...I have to agree with the E46...I gotta add that to my collection, unfortunately I am stuck with a J30A for now...until after law school..

300M for reals I thought it was copying the bentley look but with a freaking good price for it...Chrysler is using their Mercedes merger to its fullest wih great designs and ideas.

HpnotiQ - its only a matter of time before you're balling out of control my good friend.  I have a 2000 e46 now, but what I REALLY want is the M3.  But I knew if I bought that one I would not be attending law school anytime soon because I would be paying that joker off for the next 10 years.  At the very least I would not be attending law school with a car b/c I would have had to sell it.  Unfortunately there's no loan deferment for car notes, only for student loans. Somebody on this board needs to graduate and change that law. :P

I agree Sands...i agree...hey but dream higher, forget the M3...y not M5? hehehe (of course see our gas mileage drop due to having a heavy foot in a car like that..)

haha, i KNEW you were gonna say that! we'll see. the kompressor is so friggin' cheap for a beamer though. how can you pass that up?

you mean for a mercedes...

and sticker might be cheap, but all the freakin maintenance you will put into it will make the price skyrocket. 

before our current car, my wife and i had a c280...biggest piece of garbage ever.  we ended up trading it in for a diff car...thinking we cant strike out twice...swing and a miss on the e. 

we have put in more than 15K in maintenance alone on our car.  im going japanese for our next car.

yeah, i mean mercedes. so what are your suggestions for a not so expensive car but something that still says "pristige." i'm not going to go for a civic though cause i hate that rice burner stereotype.


Is somebody talking about CARS???  Let me sit up and pay attention for a minute, this is my specialty.

You said something that is "not so expensive" but still says prestige?

You could roll with Infinity, the Lincoln LS (one of the better lincoln models IMHO), or if you really want to fake them out, this new 300M everybody seems to be going crazy over.  You've seen it, it looks like a wanna be Bently with the huge front grill.  I saw it outside of the club once and I must admit it made me do a double take, only because I was trying to figure out what the hell it was.

Of course, I'm a BMW e46 fanatic (all praises be to Bavarian) so that's my personal vote as far as prestige car, but I must be honest in that it doesn't exactly meet your "not so expensive" category.

Vovlvo's are starting to look nice though, I would check them out.

lexus/infiniti/acura/audi.... :P

actually, cross lexus off that list.... :D



no on acura...if you are going to get an acura, just get the top of the line honda and put add your own "navigation" stuff etc.

There are jaguars, bmw, volvo (suprisingly are attracting more of the younger crowd...and have sporty cars as well), and perhaps a saab?

Strange...are u sure the mechanic isn't trying to weed you guys for all you're worth? Or is there REALLY a problem?  I remember you posted awhile back that you were in only for a maintenance check-up...but then they suprised you on all the other problems...

http://www.brabus.com/

if that was the case, then the dealer is screwing us.  we've been only taking our car to the dealer so that we can have everything we do in their system.

I am not sure if you are car savvy or not.  Look over the work order and reciepts.  See if they are "fixing" the same problem over and over again.  I know in CA there is a lemon law in which after attempting to fix it 3 times, the car is considered a Lemon, then the dealer owes you a NEW car same model or newer equivalent.

Read what he is trying to do to your car, and SEE if you think if he is doing misc. dumb jobs.

Ie, I heard the SLs have HORRIBLE problems and that many owners are upset, in which are requesting a full refund etc.

kompressor basically means it has a supercharger, which isn't much, but unless you AMG, Brabus it...man that would be sweet..

not sure what brabus is...but the piece of *&^% car we have is an AMG mod e430. 

totally worthless piece of *&^%.

That I agree, but I always thought the BMWs were lower to start with on the MSRP.

I say get the 3 Series and add youe options from there, or even Dinan it etc.
