Studying for the LSAT / Re: why was Dec 07 RC considered hard?
« on: December 11, 2007, 10:35:47 PM »
RC was hard, and there's good reason for people not mentioning specific questions... we don't want the LSAC police hunting us down.  I know it sounds ridiculous, but it's not worth the risk.  RC was hard IMHO because the questions that you might take for granted, such as main point, or structure required some extra thought.  This in turn slows you down and gives you less time for other questions.  Also, as a whole I thought that LR was average difficulty and games were somewhere between easy and average.

still standing by my -10 = 170 prediction

Agreed, I just think the "easy" questions were harder because I didn't understand the material as well as normal due to the convoluted-ness of the passages.

I'm thinking -10 to -12 for 170

-12 would be out of control.  I think that might be a bit of wishful thinking on your part. :-\

Probably, but games and RC will cancel each other out and I think the LR were both harder than Sept.

For me, the passages were extremely convoluted and tough to read; very awkward sentence structures.

I think the last passage was the easiest (I think it was the science passage).

If you had to bring someone back from the dead for one day to hang out with you, would it be Notorious B.I.G. or Tupac?

Tupac. Arguably a more creative and socially-inspiring rapper, not to mention B.I.G. would just add to the obesity epidemic.

this one's borderline xoxo

would you accept being able to have sex with anyone you want if it meant that anyone who wanted could have sex with you?

Wow.  That's tough.  I'm going to have to go with no.  In most cases, *really* hot chicks aren't that good in bed anyways (in my experience).

Plus, let's say I'm an 8 hypothetically.  That means I could have sex with any 10 I wanted (2 spot difference), but any 1 who wanted could have sex with me (7 spot difference).  Not worth it.  This question really has me thinking.




Personally, as a self-proclaimed 7, I would choose the opposite. The number of 10's I would sleep with far exceeds the number of 1's that want to sleep with me. From a utilitarian standpoint, the greater good is acheived.

If a guy: Would you rather be circumcised or au naturale?

If a girl: Would you prefer your guy that is circumcised or au naturale?

Simple from a guy's perspective, circumcised: word spreads quick about excessive foreskin.


Would you rather be engulfed in flames for two minutes (no don't stop, drop and roll) or slowly gutted (Braveheart) for one.

is this like some standard "would you rather" question...


Yes, standard protocol for any "would you rather" situation.

Jungle, fo' sho'

Would you rather be missing a finger or have an extra toe?

i wouldnt miss my left pinky finger.

would you rather be with someone with a really amazing body and a face that shatters mirrors, or someone with an amazingly attractive face but a body that shatters floors?  (*amazing as in whatever your ideals are)

everybody can excuse a but-her face, but everyone notices a rhino.

Starting at a 165, you can have an extra point for every punch you take from Floyd Mayweather. Blows are to the head, but he's wearing gloves, albeit thin ones. How many do you take?

15. 

tyson in his prime? 0.

15?  You're kidding, right?  With 12 oz. gloves, MAYBE two.  With "thin" (4 or 6 oz gloves) you'd be out on the first punch.

I didn't say I wouldn't be knocked out haha.  He asked how many would I take starting at a 165.  165 + 15= 180.


He didn't say you had to be conscience.

15 straight to my mug while enjoying every second of it.


burn in a lake of fire (think hell) for one minute or get slowly dissected (think Braveheart) for ten.
