You weren't supposed to read that.  ONWARD AND UPWARD orsomething...

And is it acceptable usage?

My thought process, followed by my answer:

1. Silence is good.

2. Eliminating unnecessary words increases silence, and therefore good.

3. Everyone will understand "I've never been!" to mean "I've never been there!" given the context of the exchange.

4. "There" is an unnecessary word in the sentence "I've never been there".

5. Eliminating the word "there" increases silence, and therefore good.

So yes.


Why is "there" an unnecessary word?  I don't like your faulty assumption in point 3.

Is this law school or therapy?

LS

the idea is that you can better communicate and read needs and desires in client counseling/negotiations when you can 1) better understand yourself and 2) get more comfortable with reading others

AFAIC, this may be THE most important thing you ever learn for your career.


*A general "you".  Not just Mu, specifically.

I'm a guy, and I'll be starting at LS in 2009. I know that the law is a pretty conservative profession, and I wanted to know how long hair is viewed. I've been traveling overseas for about a year, and have grown my hair while I've been here. I've gotten pretty used to it being long- right now its about upper shoulder length-  and it's well taken care of and groomed. I don't really think it would effect me while I'm actually at LS per say, but what about when I have interviews. Even if it is shortened to neck length, and in good condition, what would the people interviewing me think, from a general point of view?

Length didn't seem to be a problem, although I think it depends on who you're interviewing with.  Cleanliness and presentation seem more important.  PM me for more info.  Too lazy to respond to threads.

[drive-by]

Apparently, people were wondering how I would react to this news:

http://www.iht.com/articles/2008/09/22/africa/22mbeki.php

Well, basically, we're all screwed.  But I don't think so for the reasons you'd think, necessarily.  PM me if you want to talk some African politics.  I'm rusty, but I love to hate it.  Miss P, I demand one from you.  hahahahah

Also, I'd just like to say, although you all probably know this already, that Mu, goalie, G, Cady, and even Stanley/ghost/ethereal omniscient LSD being are all f-ing awesome IRL.  Not that others aren't.  Just reinforcing the notion from recent experience with this particular motley crew.

Also also, I'd just like to reinforce that, despite my mention of a "motley crew", Motley Cru still blows.

Thanks to all.  Sax, your slut pic killed me.  Later, etc.  I will be back on LSD on a more full-time basis shortly.

(Oh, also also also, credo, PM me!)

Love,
J
