Hey, don't knock the C6 vette.  It's a really impressive little sports car.  Personally, I'm leaning more toward a Lotus Elise or maybe an older BMW M3.  :-)

Reading this thread, I am reassured that this country sucks. Ward Churchill has something to say.

Money is overrated, so you're.... thankful you'll be able to pursue a strategy that will allow you to have as much money as possible. There's a subtle flaw with that logic, but I just can't spot it....

 ;) ;) ;) was hoping someone would catch on to that

seriously, only t.t.t. are the ones trying to acquire all these meaningless material possessions. 

plus, $125k a year isn't that much money - especially since 1) it is unlikely that you will make partner; 2) when you realize that you won't be making partner, you'll take a significant pay cut to work somewhere else; 3) if you have debt, you'll still be paying it off.

Some of you people are stupid. This was a thread for shits and giggles to talk about stuff you would like to have, not a discussion on the merits of greed/material possessions, why I want to be a lawyer etc... Take your agenda elsewhere and pull the large object out of your asses. Thank you kindly.

Now, who dared to insult my vette, and yet didn't have the balls to offer up what they think is a better car for the money?
And a Jag? I thought you had to show proof of AARP membership to purchase one of those?

A Toyota Corolla, a weekend gettaway to Cleveland, and a pair of sensible shoes.

I want to do four things with my law cash:

1)pay off my loans because I'll have to
2) buy real estate as an investment
3) run for office
4) get a british racing green Aston-Martin V-12 Vantage

Will it happen? Maybe, maybe not, but its fun to daydream.

Your wee mind cannot understand this country and the sad thing is that you think you are so smart

And to answer the ?, I am going to start buying beer in bottles

Cannot find a false statement, here.

A frame in which to display the lotto ticket that won me the big bucks because in public interest that's the only way my bucks'll be big.  :D
