Even more examples of how you're a feminine hygiene product. 

Question:  Are you a man or a woman?  I always thought you were a woman, but I've never heard a woman use the term feminine hygiene product.

Two weeks ago I met a girl at a bar and that was pretty much the only word she knew.  It wasn't charming.

Current Law Students / Studying at the Peninsula

Here at the Peninsula Hotel in Chicago...wondering...how am I supposed to study Wills, Trusts, and Estates when Chris Rock is sitting at the table next to mine and being really funny?

Current Law Students / Law School Paradox
« on: February 06, 2008, 02:30:21 PM »
I havenít yet paid my tuition. They put a ďlockĒ on my account, meaning I canít register for classes. I still havenít registered for the classes I want, though. Iím signed up for this three-credit course, but I want to switch it to a one-credit course because thatís all I need to graduate. Only, if I pay my tuition, theyíll charge me for the two extra credit hours. And, like I said, if I donít pay, the registration system wonít allow me to make the switch.

Current Law Students / This Quote Means...?
« on: February 06, 2008, 02:28:08 PM »
Just came across this in my Copyright book.  What does it mean?

ďThe court did not explain whether it considered defendantís showing to have constituted proof overcoming the presumption of receipt arising from plaintiffís testimony of mailing or whether it felt there was an unsatisfied burden on the plaintiff to show that the particularly responsible employees of the defendant had received his communication.Ē

I wouldn't put it on there, especially if its anything like your blog.  I'd be afraid someone would read it and rescind my job offer...

Do I say mean things about people on my blog?
Thought I kept it positive...

Uh...right.  I meant that your blog is pretty crappy - it sucks, IMO.  If your "memoirs" are based on what you wrote there, then I'd be ashamed to put my name on it in print.  Blogging on the internet is one thing; charging people for a book is quite another.  I'm still shocked as hell that any publisher saw anything worth printing...

No, the memoir is different from the blog.
Memoir is my first year.  Blog is the 3rd.

What's the name of your book?

Current Law Students / Re: in class exams v. take home exams

-sigh-  LSB, I really don't like being put in a position where I agree with you.  I don't even really want to engage you in a conversation, since I feel like everything you post will be a shill of some sort for either your blog or your book.  But I digress.

If the same exam is going to be given, I'd go for the in-class exam, but that's because I'm betting that may ability to perform under the gun serves me better than everyone else's ability to agonize over the exam for 72 hours.  I know there are those who would devote way more time to it than I would, and I know I do all right on timed exams, so I'd take the 3 hour option.

On the other hand, most of your classmates figure that they can grind out the exam better than everyone else and run through it with a finer-toothed comb, and would rather do that than be forced to think, work, and write on the fly.  It all depends on what everyone thinks their strengths are.

Of course, only 50% of students are better (than average) at doing take-home exams...yet it seems like 95% of students think they're part of that 50%.

Current Law Students / Re: Youíre TOO GOOD to me.
« on: November 14, 2007, 01:50:48 PM »
well, i wasn't going to because i thought "man, he's not gonna believe me because im so bold and smart".

but then i said, "whats so bad about what i did?  I merely stated FACTS."

Anyways, you asked, I answered, now where is the gratitude you wished to shower me with?

Well, if it is you...

I did want to shower you with gratitude before...but now there's vicious, specific, and untrue things on 'your' page, and I ask that you take them down.  They're defaming.

Thanks.

probably, lol, id delete you if i were the moderator, but i am sure you would do the same.

okay, forgive me in advance for asking this everyone else on the board, but what the hell is there to say about 1L year?  I could some mine up in about 35 seconds (lots of time in the library, good grades, gorgeous brunette, sluttly brunette, possibly pregnant blonde, decent job, the end).

Yeah, but couldn't all books could be summed up in 30 seconds like that?

Why do it with in 3 hours when you could do it with in 72?

Well, sure, if I was getting paid by the hour...
