::)

in the other thread, someone compared you to a poster named wii.  i merely said that if not for your post count, i would be suspicious that you were just another one of his bitter alts.

if you read that as an attack, its you with insecurity issues.  i even deleted that post because i didnt want others to take it wrong.

oh, btw, and didnt others in that thread object to the way you come across?  http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,4013169.0.html

then, in this thread, i merely say what i use it for, and you then proceed to tell me that i not only dont know what a secondary source is, but what i am expected to cite.  deny jumping me if you want, your intent is plain.

oh, and yes, i am SO intimidated by your....your....dare i say it....your USERNAME.   :D :D :D

the only "deeper issues" in play are that you come across (and not only to me) as an abrasive know-it-all, who accuses everyone who disagrees with you of being an adcomm.  i called you on it, and you dont like it. 

get over yourself.






This is funny. I will entertain this for a while though.  If a person were to read what you wrote in response to what I wrote in this thread, they would think that there was some sort of issue between us.

"ummm, yeah, its a secondary authority.  and very useful when there are NO cases that define a particular word, concept, or doctrine; or there are split decisions.  i have been asked more than once by judges at both local and appellate level during motion hearings or argument how black's defined something.

ps.  dont tell me what i'm expected to cite."

Who was telling you what you are expected to cite??? ??? ??? Who is telling you how to do research???? ??? I dont even know who the heck you are.  I loved the tone of that post though. It was cynical with a twinge of pompous sarcasm. So I had to return with a response. ::)

   



dammit.  its hard to dislike someone who appreciates my one true talent.

No, no I am familiar with this. The insecure people get intimidated by my moniker. That is why she attacked me in my posting on the other board-out of the blue. I'm just not the type of person to tolerate being attacked for not reason. In this thread, a few other people also said that the dictionary would be useless. But for some reason, she gets an attitude with me. That shows that there are some deeper issues at play.

I donít know, have you ever considered the remote possibility that maybe many of your posts do come of as snobbish and a-holish to some people? I mean youíre probably right it is a conspiracy and far more likely that we are all adcoms posing as students who are intimidated by your moniker. But, and Iím just throwing out as an alterative hypothesis, not matter how unlikely it might be in reality, you know as a conversation starter and all.   

Anyway I need to get back to looking through these law school applications and beaming thoughts into peopleís heads while covering up my ties to the implosion of World Trade Center building number 7.

pardon me while I soil my trousers at your splendor. ::)

Lol, ah don't worry. I can refer you to a pair of Depends diapers. I hear that they are very big with the senior crowd that has a similar problem.

looking at that picture, it makes me think that's the voice of experience, not anecdote.

 :D Good one. If only that were true. Don't worry, I know a few associates who got hired despite their old age and the occasional senior moments. So there is still hope for you. You'll be fine old sport.

are you still looking for internet hump buddies? my dad's kind of lonely, and he's into older women.

But judging from your age, he would be either in his hundreds or cryogencially frozen. Thats too old. Thanks but no thanks.

he's not that much younger than your mom. and, he says she's poo in the sack.


Yeah, my mom did say she had problems with your dad that night. She said that your dad was a little too small for her. And if penis size runs in the genes, then that means that your wife is going to be in for a big surprise... Or should I say a "little" surprise.

with as much cock as I'm sure she's seen, I'm sure she's an expert. but with a gaping vag like hers, John Holmes would've been like throwing a hot dog down a hallway. and I see you have your mother's chin. nice and furry so the balls don't get chilly.

spoken like a true 2 incher ;)  Atta boy

Actually I have not even read it. The only person Iím worried about finding a job for is me, and thatís seems to be going fine. I guess Iím selfish like that.

damn. you really need some decent material.

two inches? from the ground! ba-dum-bump. ::)

and it only seems small because you're taking it in the nostril.

as much fun as this has been, I really don't want to keep shitting up this thread. you can manage on your own, right? seems to get you by on those lonely nights. oh, that would be all of them, wouldn't it?


I hear a penis pump can get you to 3inches in 6 months. So there is still hope. You will be primed and ready to go for spring semester.

Have we decided that Black's Law Dictionary is useless in law school but useful in practice yet?
