The president of CU just said the C-word can be a term of endearment.  Stern is looking pretty good right now.

Politics and Law-Related News / Re: Has Bush lost it?

The quote by RR, Jr. was in the media - just not very out front in the media.  There have also been things in the media that the Regans are upset with RR being used in politcal commercials.  Latest I read was that the group that was doing the commercial is not going to air it for at least a week.  There have also been rumors that Bush may have to distance himself from the Regan image he is going after because of the problems the families have over stem cell research.

From what the financial aid person said at CU - Colorado does after the first year.  However, you have to move to Colorado before school starts (only a few weeks though) and do several things so that a year later you will be a resident.  I think the things are, get a driver's license, register to vote, change your car title, and a few other things that I can't remember.  You have to do it all before school starts because if you do it Sept 1, 2004 then you will be eligible for in-state tuition Sept 1, 2005.  Because the semester starts before that (in Aug) you wouldn't be eligible your 1st semester of second year unless you did it in Aug of 2004.  Other states might work like this too so you might have to move before school starts to the state you are going.

here's what the profs think: those in long-distance relationships make the best students (and get the best grades). someone who has a bf/gf/significant other right there with them is going to have plenty of distractions, while the single kids will have a whole different kind of distractions (potentially sitting 2 seats away, even).
so the long-dist thing is at least good for your gpa :P

I'm thinking these profs don't realize the potential of getting your BF video games to play while you study.  You just have to get him a game - tell him to play it (especially something like Final Fantasy) and then everytime you want to goof off and do something with him he'll say something along the lines of "But I thought you had studying to do.  And two more hours and I'll be a level 24 red mage with over 2600 experience points!"

Has anyone actually applied yet for food stamps?  Or more importantly - applied and been accepted?  Going through the food stamp site, it pretty much looks like it isn't going to happen for any law student unless you have something else going on that makes you a non-trad student...

Uhm.   Most able-bodied....

That would leae some able-bodied who will be eligible as well as non-able-bodied....

I think your point just got lost.

The thing with food stamps - there are some students who probably could qualify - however I think they would be few and far between.  If you have children and are going to law school, if you are caring for someone who is disabled, if you qualify for other aid (not loans) then you may qualify.  However, if you are someone that just wants to not take out loans and get food stamps instead (i.e. you are 24, got both arms, both legs, don't have any children, aren't a vet, etc) the program isn't for you.

If you qualify for loans, can get loans, and have made the decision to go to law school instead of working, the program isn't there for you.

I think some of this is also based on some of the *forgotten* or *lost* copies of books of the Bible they have found.

"And food stamps are intended to help whoever qualifies."

Then this kinda solves the problem as the website stated that students *typically* don't qualify, then they don't get food stamps (unless they are non-trad students with children, dependants, prior disabilities, veterans, etc).

Depending on which religion you are this may or may not offend:

Some scholars think that Jesus was in fact married.  At the time, in order to be a *real* Jew, you had to be married.  You couldn't be single.  So if Jesus was married, then he would have had to consumate his relationship, and would have had sex with a woman (which doesn't make him straight as gay men have had sex and been married to women).

There are also theories (and these aren't quite as historical) that he and Mary Magdeline had a thing (and this also isn't from the DiVinci Code :-).  If this is true, this shows another way that he could have had sex.

The whole thread is funny though.  If Jesus was the son of god (and *forwarning* I'm not Christian so this isn't coming from someone that is) and sex is something beautiful and natural between a man and a woman that god created, why couldn't his son have had sex with atleast a woman while he was here?

Dujavu... In another post I put the links to the Food Stamp program.  If anyone is thinking about doing this and are starting to rely on the concept - you better find another way.  In the food stamp site it states:

"Most able-bodied students ages 18 through 49 who are enrolled in college or other institutions of higher education at least half time are not eligible for food stamps."

The few excepts for this are if you have kids, are taking care of someone who is dependant on you (such as an elderly parent) or qualify for some other assistance (i.e. you are already on Social Security or disability).  This program isn't for your *typical* students - students typically aren't eligable.  Regardless of how little income you have, you can take out loans.
