I go back to my full time job everyday and think 'God, I can't do this for the rest of my life'...

My last day is this Friday  ;D

General Board / Re: Rev = Erapitt

Erapitt is about to be a GW 1L. That's who Erapitt is. All these conspiracy theories are ridiculous. You guys need to get a life and stop speculating or spreading rumors about who is or could be Erapitt. Leave the dude alone. You wouldn't like it if some annonymous person who doesn't even know you were constantly on online message boards saying you're this and that. Just as others don't harass you online, but rather debate the substance of your posts, have some respect and self-dignity by not harassing others. Let him be. If he says something that annoys or offends you, write about the actual substance of it rather than personally attacking someone you do not know. Winning an online fight is like saying you're the smartest kid w/ down syndrome. That's the only kind of award you're ever going to win by personally attacking someone online. If, instead, you debate the substance of their posts, you will be given the respect of others. Personally, I think the latter is much better.

Only passive-agressive losers argue online...

General Board / Re: Moot Court v. Law Review
« on: July 26, 2006, 12:00:01 AM »
If you had to pick one, LR will serve you best in job prospects/judicial clerkship opportunities. Moot court is much more practical if you want to be a litigator. However, several of the research, analytical, writing, Bluebooking, and editing skills that you learn as a member of law review are also useful for moot court. Most of your moot court experience will involve researching an issue and writing a brief. Of course, you will eventually prepare to argue your brief, but for many competitions the brief is worth at least half of your score.

Good answer...  ;D

In other words, it depends...

Don't confuse time spent waiting for various responses and milestones in the application process with difficulty.

I thought the process of getting in was fairly easy. Maybe I could say it was nerve wracking (until I got the first acceptance).

But that's just me...

Pointless Arguments / Re: Love followers charged with hate

To me. Being a homosexual is slightly different then people who have sex with children.
"It's just a sexual preference."
"If it doesn't effect me then why worry about it?"
It's sick, it's wrong, and I don't want to see it or hear about it. I am not going to go shoot gay people for being gay or spread hate about them because I hate no one. I just wanted to put the homosexuality desease into the light. I don't know if being a homosexual is a mental disorder or a physical disorder but it IS a disorder. For the life of me I don't understand how people have become so accepting of something so gross and indecent.  :-\

Note: Those quotes are from no specific person but are just a couple of basic ideas I hear quite a bit from people.

YEA FOR FREEDOM OF SPEACH!  ;D

If you're going to be a bigot, at least learn to spell.  It's "disease," not "desease;" and "speech," not "speach."

Jacy, go easy on him...

how many bigots can spell anything but "Get 'er done?"

Finally, I must admit that I find an analogy to six months of work experience amusing.

Ha ha yeah, really.

General Board / Re: 1 year later....still glad u went to law school?

when i went to treatment for a prescription drug addiction, my group included 3 nurses, an attorney, a business owner, and a priest.  my sponsors have been a college professor, a doctor, and a district court judge.

i have already been through that hell, and i know d**mn well that nothing in the world will make me go back.  if the price of sobriety is learning some humility and asking for help when i need it, so be it.

everyone who thinks, 'oh that could never happen to me, youre just weak'  -- good luck to you, and i hope youre right

Actually, it is weakness. A way of rationalizing one's own failures. We're all highly intelligent on this board (at worst, average); we all knew before any drug use that we have, or haven't done what were the potential consequences of our actions. Only by naivity and youthful arrogance would one dismiss the possiblity of addiction.

Responsiblity is not just something that is accomplished reactively. It is possible to go into a potentially stressful environment and submit oneself to stimuli that are conducive to drug use and not become an addict. Conversely, it is irresponsible to rationalize drug use away by blaming it on the perceived "cause" of the addiction.

The only real cause of addiction is weakness.
