Studying for the LSAT / LSAT Prep Software. Any Recommendations?
« on: September 30, 2004, 07:58:52 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? "

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:

At the gay bar, gay bar, gay bar.
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.


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.

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.
Super, super, superstar

Maybe once you and your partner know that you can both survive those test it could lead to an even greater level of intimacy and closeness.

Hooking up with a married or engaged woman is totally gross. It's a total violation of all the good things that ring stands for. What does it say about a man that is an accomplice to this kind of treachery? And what does it say about the woman?

And can you even imagine the karmic repercussions?

I'd like to experience that kind of intimate level of trust. I think that would be an awesome positive experience. But women have told me that they see me as serial dater. Which boggles the mind since I am such a nice boy.  :)

no joke. i've never understood that whole jealousy thing. it just seems bizarre to me.

I think jealousy is all narcissism and possessiveness getting turned the dark side. Narcissism attacks whatever threatens it. If you doubt yourself and lack confidence, then you will magnify that with your feelings of being threatened in your relationship. Possiveness because once you feel that there is a sexual exclusivity, then the other "belongs to you".

That could be one reason why guys that act like dicks tend to sustain more interest from women.
"He doesn't care where I go or what I do? That's nice but then again WTF not? Aren't I good enough to be jealous over?"

I used to wear this ring on my wedding finger to deter guys when I didn't want to get hit on at the bars but then one of my friends told me something disturbing. He said that a wedding/engagement ring gets you hit on more than if you didn't have one. He said that he would go out with his friends and wear a ring and the girls would be all over him and that he was always really attracted to girls with wedding rings. What's up with that?

I think it is because someone wearing a ring means that they are committed, or are able to make a committment.

Absolute committment is a total turn on because it something that everyone wants to attain, but not everyone gets.

The ring therefore is a challenge. Like people want to be homewreckers because it could be construed to be the ultimate ego stroke.

You were soooo awesome that the married person would drop everything and ruin their lives for the chance to be with you and only you. Do you really want to be with someone whose narcissism needs to be fed with somebody else's misery?

Homewreckers are useful though. Totally part of the food chain. They serve to test the committment by offering promises and excitement that can often go missing in the early part of a marriage. Instead of going into their problems to root out the unhappiness and make their relationship stronger, people are lazy and go for the quick fix.

Has anyone doubled/tripled names before? I've done this four times now. You know, one person you date has the same name as another person you date.

Wild. I have a pet theory that certain names are "cursed" for want of a better word.

Like I am wary of dating Judys. I've dated like 5 Judys and I told myself that last one was the Final Judy. I meat a woman and her name is Judy she gets shunted to the smiling politely, excuse myself quickly category.

With my luck the great love of my lofe could turn out to be a Judy.

Oh cruel Fates. Please don't mock me with a hot Judy.

If I get the sense that the woman I am flirting is in anyway involved I simply back off. Cheaters are total turn offs. It is the ultimate ice blanket.

If you got her/him by scamming her/him from someone else, what are the odds that someone else can't steal her/him the same way? In my mind once a precedent for straying has been established then that suspicion is locked forever.

Nothing hotter then faith in each other, nothing worse then faithlessness.
