What's a zipcar?

www.zipcar.com

A temporary car service.

You just reserve it, use your card to open the car, and drive off.  There are two cars parked right outside the law school and two more about a block or two away.

Thanks.  That's pretty cool; I've never heard of such a thing.

I believe this thread is falsely titled.

Enlightened principles reveal that Penn Law 2011 is where you should be.  That is all  ;)

Unsubstantiated allegations not worthy of consideration by this rational fact finder!

Does anyone have any opinions about backpacks?  More specifically, I am wondering about brand preferences, or any certain features we should be looking for.  I will probably buy a Lenovo X61s notebook (which is pretty small), but I want to make sure I have a good bag for carrying whatever reading materials and anything else we need. 

I LOVE YOUR COCKATIEL!  I miss mine (had him from age 6 to age 20) very much.

I got a bag from High Sierra at ebags.com for a VERY reasonable price, and it's holding up very well.  No signs of wear and tear yet, and it fits lots and lots of stuff.

I'm still not sure why my bag is bigger and heavier than everyone else's though.  I don't get what I'm carrying that is extra.

It's cause your laptop is ginormous.  :P

credited.  :D  If it's any consolation, it took me a long time to figure out why normal-sized bags seemed so big and unwieldy on me. 

I used <a href=“http://www.ogio.com/product.php?product=442”>this backpack[/url] for most of 1L.  Worked like a charm.  But I have a bit of a bag fetish, so I've tried every imaginable combination.

It's totally not!  I've downgraded to a 15 inch MBP, the same as a lot of people (including Jolie and Pearl), and smaller than most 15 inch PCs.  I had issues with the 17 inch, which has now been repaired (fingers crossed) and become Mr. Flyaway's new toy.

I know exactly what you mean.  It makes me sad to carry the same boring backpack every day.
