General Off-Topic Board / Re: Is there really a HELL?
« on: October 02, 2004, 01:21:57 AM »
I read somewhere that Hell is defined by distance from or separation from The Source, or God for want of a better term.

So I think that for some people this is Hell, and for others this is Heaven. No absolutes, just relative degrees.

Or, People created the concept of Hell because in their minds there had to be a place/concept to send people that do horrid acts against their fellow man and get away with it.

Or People may have created the idea of a God(s) in order to keep from feeling lost and alone as we hurtle through space. 

But hey, it's late and I'm done studying Analytical Reasoning and really want a beer and a smoke. And I don't even like cigarettes anymore.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Games tip

Totally.
Do not panic.
Although, weeping from frustration and emotional surrender may not be panic, but it's not something I recommend.  ;D

I'm not even taking it tomorrow (DEC), and I feel sympathy panic.

If you're taking the test tomorrow. Good Luck.

Now go right to bed.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: LSAT Prep Software. Any Recommendations?
« on: October 01, 2004, 05:25:54 PM »
Thanks for the help.

I was mostly looking at software as a way to get metrics. Since I'm in front of a omputer everyday I figured it may be away to get more practice in.

I've got a bunch of old exams from LSAC which I use for fire drills.

The longer you are away from school, and have a proven track record with a professional career and higher education the less your UGPA counts. The problem is that means there is even more emphasis on your LSAT.

Well I read that don't raise issues in your application/PS that you aren't willing to clarify with an addendum. A half page to explain something is better then leaving it unsaid.

"Diversity" is just a made up concept in order to appease the political correctness crew. Diversity in society is one thing. No way should you expect the population of any graduate school to mirror the population. "Diversity" for admissions is just a percentage point. Once they hit that number, then everything else is just air time.

Good luck.

Studying for the LSAT / LSAT Prep Software. Any Recommendations?
« on: September 30, 2004, 05:58:52 PM »
Anyone have any experiences with some good LSAT prep software?

I'm looking for the ability to take a large amount of tests on a PC, with metrics, breakdowns, etc. But the software should be stand alone. I want to be able to buy it at say a bookstore or some other retail outlet.  Not as part of a prep class.  Like the cd-rom that came with the Princeton Review book.

Many thanks if you can help me out.

This is too funny! That website is awesome. I didn't realize that other people noticed the passive-agressive thing too. Why is that? What causes it? A few of my friends are like that and it drives me nuts. I'm glad it's not as popular anymore too but I do wish that meant there would be more jobs out there. I haven't really experienced the dating scene in Seattle as much so I don't really know how awful it is but it doesn't surprise me that much. Are you originally from the area or did you move from somewhere else?

Don't get me wrong I love Sea-town, but it still blows if you don't know what you are getting. It's a serious caveat emptor kinda place.

Message me. I'll be happy to chat about Seattle, and its relative merits and degress of blowage.

I don't want to pull a jack move on Reeve Oliver's thread. Especially since it and I are all both about the music baby.  :D

Stroopwafel, Are you in Seattle?

Sorry, just checked your profile, of course you are. I don't think too many people from this board are from the NW but I could be wrong.

Yup Seattle. Home of the outdoorsy passive-aggressives. I dig Modest Mouse. I remember when I was at UDub I thought they were going to go places.

I forgot to add locals like Pretty Girls Make Graves, Maktub, Death Cab For Cutie, Murder City Devils (and in a flash they were gone). Just for a shout out and to maintain thread cohesiveness ;)

Naw, the music scene around here isn't for everyone. The stuff that lots of people are into around here gets blank stares elsewhere. I'm just glad Seattle is no longer cool. We thrive being a provincial backwater. It means there are less lines for shows and less people on the slopes, bike/hike trails, surf line-ups, and whatnot. But it also means less people in bars and meet-ups. But it balances out since people in Seattle don't date anyway:
"That sinking feeling: What does a single in Seattle have to do for a date? "
http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/living/2001950474_datingblues08.html

The manic-depressive weather (9 months of gray), the outdoorsy focus, and the need to have a "thing" that you are into kinda kills the flava around here. I've had friends from out of the area complain about how Seattle-ites are. And how much we suck. Too much Nordic reticence coupled with First Nation love of the outdoors. Mix that and shake with the general trend towards self medication just as protection from aforementioned weather.

"Pass me another chocolate and Zoloft chip biscotti for my triple gingerbread latte."

Cafe culture, micro-brews, marijuana, gloomy indie-rock, and anti-depressants.
We're a fun town, just don't stand up too fast. Ya sure, ya betcha.

Not enough random weirdness. Ahem... to wit:



Girl!

I wanna take you to a gay bar,
I wanna take you to a gay bar, gay bar, gay bar.

Let's start a war, start a nuclear war,
At the gay bar, gay bar, gay bar.
Wow!
At the gay bar.

Now tell me do ya, a do ya have any money?
I wanna spend all your money,
at the gay bar, gay bar, gay bar.

(Pause)

I've got something to put in you,
I've got something to put in you,
I've got something to put in you,
At the gay bar, gay bar, gay bar.
Wow!

You're a superstar, at the gay bar.
You're a superstar, at the gay bar.
Yeah! you're a superstar, at the gay bar.
You're a superstar, at the gay bar.
Superstar.
Super, super, superstar
