Studying for the LSAT / Re: dammitttt, my test got cancelled???

Ah, that sucks to be you, man.  Don't worry about the Sabbath test- it isn't supposed to be any easier or harder than the other tests, and the grading scale ensures that this is the case.  You are still likely to get the score that you would have gotten on Saturday, as long as the whole extra waiting period hasn't psyched you out for the test  :-\

The only thing that sucks is that it is undisclosed.  I definitely wouldn't like it if I couldn't access my score sheet and the questions of the test upon receiving my score.

Write a letter to LSAC, maybe they will reimburse you  :)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: ***ATTENTION: LSAT takers in ASIA!

I have to agree that it is doubtful anyone writing in Asia would be able to get any sort of an advantage from this board.  To demonstrate the truth of this to yourself, if you are not going to be writing the December test, go ahead and read through the LSAT discussion threads within 24hours of that test.  Since you haven't seen any of the questions yourself, it is impossible to comprehend the threads discussing specific things on the test.  It is also impossible for you to evaluate whether what you are reading is good information, or complete bunk.

As for the experimental section... it is waaaay too risky I think to just take a rest and not do that section.  This administration, they only put 100 questions on the test.  I wouldn't put it past the LSAC to decide they are going to start switching up the order of the sections, too.   :-*

Silly, worried Americans!   ;)

Yeah.  In your disclosure booklet, released on October 25th via your internet account, or much later than that in your mail box.

Heh, sometimes I see deer on my campus :D

We have rabbits, and many varieties of squirrels as well.

You are right, very fortunate!  I used to see a lot of concerts in the Saddledome (our NHL hockey arena), but the acoustics of such buildings really do suck, and it never sounds as good as a small club or a small concert hall.

Outdoors (particularly Radiohead, nestled in the mountains) offers its own unique advantages.

I mean, surely we can all relate to lyrics like "No Surprises", which has amazing relevance to our inevitable futures:

A heart thats full up like a landfill.  A job that slowly kills you.  Bruises that won't heal.

You look so tired_nhappy.  Bring down the government.  They don't.  Theydontspeak for us.

(I apologize for the certain liberties that I took in transcribing these lyrics, with regards to punctuation and so on.  I just can't stand to not capitalize.)

Why do I like radiohead?  It's great rock and roll, for starters.  It is also great "artsy college rock".  The poetic quality of the lyrics inspires the English literature student in me, and rather than seeing their lyrics as "depressing", I prefer to analyse the great social and political messages they deliver through their music.

Lastly, they put on an awesome show, and their concert that I attended in Vancouver (see avatar) was one of the greatest days of my life.

Oh, and Franz, what are all the concerts that you have seen?  I love listing concerts (though a lot of this is down-to-earth canadian talent, and maybe you kids in the states wouldn't recognize some of them):

Smashing Pumpkins (in 1996 and then again in 2000), Eric Clapton, Tragically Hip (twice, the last time in a concert hall 5 rows away from the front), Tea Party, Big Sugar, The Guess Who, Foo Fighters and Our Lady Peace (same outdoor concert that I saw the 'Pumpkins at in 2000), plus a few outdoor festivals.

And I'm still kicking my own ass for not going to see the Red Hot Chilli Peppers last fall (was too poor from going to see Radiohead  :( )

I thought that unimpressed was the best answer.

Indifferent, rather than implying an emotional indifference, is really an indication of neutrality on the issue in terms of opinion.  And the author definitely held strong opinions about the modernist movement.

And exasperated seems to be too strong of a word.. I know that when I am exasperated with something or someone, I have a difficult time writing a reasoned argument about the cause of my exasperation  :o

50mi = 80km
466mi = 750km

Well, we will just give it a few days... I just heard about the evacuations around that area, and was excited about the possibility.  Atmospheric chemistry is so complex  :)

Oh, and Franz, what Radiohead poll do you speak of?

You know...

Calgary is just 750km away from Mount St. Helens.  Maybe we'll get some ash over here...
