What always confuses me is the fact that these people KNOW the camera is on them, yet still we see stuff like that. This means they probably purposefully choose to react this way, for reasons which continue to escape me (although I do have a couple possible ideas).

Its like our version of Jerry Springer. I need to watch this.

I'm sure they tell them to act ridiculous.  I kinda know someone who's gonna be on the next season of Real World - she said it was more staged than you'd think.

My Super Sweet Sixteen is quite possibly the most addictive show on television.  I think they put crack in their broadcasts.  It's such a trainwreck, though, that you just can't look away!

I've never really watched it, but that clip with the girl crying over the car is possibly the greatest 2 minutes of television ever.


Wow, you are right Bosco, that is heart-wrenching.  Rarely do you see television that really cuts to the core of important social issues as MTV has done here:

I heard she's up for an Emmy.

When I saw the mom offering her 14 year old daughter a Lexus sc430 the day BEFORE her birthday, I was thinking to myself, "Why did she have to be such an idiot?  She ruined the whole party!  Everything, she just ruined everything!  I can't believe she gave her the car now.  What the hell!  The stupid idiot.  What is wrong with her?  She ruined everything!!!" Then, just as my tears came peeking out of their ducts, I heard the sweet, delicate Audrey speak what my heart had been screaming. 

The performance touched me.  Absolutely touched me.

Also, I heard that earlier in the episode Audrey called one of her friends fat, and told the girl she needed to lose weight before the party.  People thought that was bitchy of her, but she was just trying to help her friend.

To be fair, her mom did ruin her life...

I agree...I know it's an unpopular position, but I side with the girl.

I know when for my 16th birthday I got the white Bentley instead of the silver Bentley it ruined my life.

Yeah, that's not as bad as receiving the gift before your birthday party, but still pretty bad.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Is this enough LSAT studying??
« on: July 07, 2007, 03:19:48 PM »
I made that assumption after I completed about 13 practice exams and received roughly the same score on the last 4 of those.  All practice exams were taken in simulated testing conditions.  Regardless of the outcome, I'm willing to spend the rest of the summer buried in the library finding out how to best apply the TestMasters strategies to suit my needs.  I'll study just for the sake of studying and knowing that I did everything I possibly could've to score highly on this exam. 

Have you thought about looking at other material?  I read through the Powerscore bibles a couple weeks before the test - I think it was somewhat helpful.

I'll look into buying the PowerScore bibles.  Also, I plan on buying all 3 of the 10 official LSAT books released on LSAC and then completing all the practice tests in those books.

Just make sure you don't fall into the timed practice test churn and burn routine and repeatedly just play pin the tail on the donkey.  Review and study time going through problems in slow motion is far more beneficial to increase your skills.  Taking lots of timed practice tests helps build test day stamina and endurance but by itself does little to improve your understanding of the concepts and the materials.


Quality, not quantity.  ;)  Yeah, I know what Jeffort is saying has been repeated a bunch of times, but just wanted to reiterate that I completely agree.  At the same time, make sure you do timed tests as well.  I think a timed test every other day, leaving you 2 days to go over it, go over your prep materials, etc. is what I would do.  I'm sure I'm repeating myself.  ;)

As for the Bibles, I'll just add why they were helpful to me...with the games, after I did about 10-12 tests, I could usually pretty much figure out the games and get close to every one right.  But there were times I would screw up a few questions, or just barely finish in time, etc.  Reading through the games Bible a couple weeks before the test just gave me some structure, confidence, etc.  Instead of looking at each game differently and just working my way to the answer by different methods each time, it gave me a bit of a system and strategy as I did each game.  You've already taken a class, so I'm sure you pretty much know how to attack the games, so maybe this wouldn't be as helpful for you?  But I still thought their strategies were good, and on test day I got the games perfect with a few mins to spare.  Except I think I might have gotten 1 or 2 wrong on my experimental games section.

As for the LR Bible, it was just full of good little tips.  One in particular that helped me a lot was a simple trick for eliminating choices on parallel reasoning questions.

I think with both Bibles, it was kinda teaching me strategies, tips, etc. that I kinda used already, but after reading the Bibles I was much more conscious of these strategies, if that makes sense.
