Ave Maria / Re: Ann Arbor tips for new comers??? *serious this time*
« on: July 17, 2005, 06:21:23 PM »
Lilli:

Ann Arbor has two separate public transportation systems, TheRide and TheLink, the latter of which is out of service for now.  Rumor has it the city pulled its funding. TheRide is still operating, however, and you can ride it downtown and back.  I'm  not sure how convenient it would be for you to use to get to the law school every morning.  Since it does get cold in the winter (5 to 25 F), it's not the best weather for long walks or standing at a bus stop.  If you can afford it, I'd recommend a car.

If you want to walk--it's good exercise, after all--there is an apartment complex within walking distance of the law school--Greenbrier Apartments--and another one about a mile away--Windemere Park Apartments.  Windemere Park Apartments, in my humble opinion, is a much nicer place to live (I've lived here for two years) and the new owners are benevolent towards Ave Maria Students.  Windemere is also nicer looking than Greenbrier.  You can call the office at (734) 662-0330 and ask about rates.  Tell them you'll be going to Ave Maria in the fall.  I think they allow pets for a fee.

If you get a car, 4WD is superior to 2WD; it gives you more control and you, as a result, can be a more confident, aggressive driver.  But most cars in Ann Arbor (more than half from what I see upon casual observation) are not 4WD (or AWD), and people seem to do just fine.  I've driven a 2WD car here for two winters and been in only three accidents.  j/k.  If you opt for a 2WD vehicle, just make sure it's front-wheel drive.

For getting a top-quality legal education in a uniquely moral environment Ave Maria is an excellent school. 

Good luck!

The most important thing to purchase is an artificial orb, or globe, to light up your room during the 6-month-long winters.  As the sun rarely makes an appearance, you need something to tell you when it's daytime and keep you from getting depressed.  (Another remedy is to buy a clock that tells jokes.)  In winter, living in Ann Arbor is analogous to living in a cave, only the cave is very big and you can drive around.

The cold in the wintertime is dangerous, so it's best to stay inside.  If you must venture out, wear two or three coats and put heated bricks in all the pockets.  You can make your own heated bricks with regular bricks: just heat them in boiling water for five minutes and put them in your pockets with tongs.  They'll help keep you warm, and the extra weight is good for traction.  Note: don't warm the bricks in the microwave; they explode.

Finally, if you don't have a pair you'll need to get some snowshoes.  Last winter a few students tried to walk to school in regular snow boots and sank in the ten-foot snow like it was quicksand.  Fortunately there were other students on hand to fish them out.  (They tied backpacks together and made a sort of rope.)

Good luck!

The Supreme Court upheld partial birth abortion ban 5-4. What do you think?

there's also the other side:  if she wants it and he doesn't, he still has to pay.

Yeah, a classmate sent me that this morning.

I don't know if it qualifies as the asexual reproduction we brought up yesterday, but it's neat on its own.
