You have to know whether you're the happy amicable drunk, or an a-hole and adjust accordingly. That guy deserves whatever karma has in store for him.

I think most people who end up miserable probably would be miserable regardless of their job. Happiness is what I do when I am not working, regardless of how few hours that happens to be.

LSAT is essentially an IQ test.

"Essentially" is not the same as "actually". People that score in the 50th percintile of an IQ can't even get into college. Wheras people that score in the 50th percintile of the LSAT are college graduates.

Ahh... I will have to respectively disagree here, 50th percentile IQ would make you decidely average. And any average kid can study their ass off and make it through an undergrad degree (maybe not in mechanical engineering, or something technical in nature, but a comm or business degree).

C'mon now... doesn't it seems kind of silly to write this cop off as incompenent? Odds are, OP's wife was speeding, there are enough people out there that speed (95% of us...) a cop doesn't need to single out and "persecute" this guys wife...

Besides, paying a ticket isn't an admission of guilt. It's just an unwillingness to contest the assertion of the citing officer.

It's impossible to be an "idealist" championing the cause of an unjust ticket anyway. If you did go to court, the entire proceedings would last five minutes, tops. The cop would confirm the information in the citation, the wife would offer some type of defense, of which there really isn't one (speeding tickets are he-said, she said) and then resort to an ad hominem type argument...

And then she would pay the ticket.

Former smoker here, and I agree that banning smoking in public places is a little redundant because of the littering laws in place that are not being enforced consistently. However, the council, put in place by the will of the people, dictated this ordinance, so ultimately, that is where you should lay the blame. Apathetic voters...

meh...

Exactly...  ;D

Call me an idealist, but if I got a ticket and truly was not speeding, THERE IS NO f**ckING WAY I WOULD PAY THE TICKET. At least not until a long, drawn-out, costly fight.

I think I tend to agree with this post on the issue; for me ultimately, it would, and always does, come down to opportunity cost...

If I can do something better with my time that makes more dinero than that ticket, f-ck the ticket, I'll pay the fine...

I am undecided. I think I would be equally suited for both litigation and transactional-ish work. I have thought a lot about becoming a lobbyist though, any body else had the same inclination? Tell me whatcha think...

I'd say you're a lock for top 92 percentile. Good Job!!!  ;D

American Can-do attitude will take you to the top!!!
