No, my roommate has two cats.  I'd rather they be someone else's, frankly, because then I'm not responsible for them.

Property seems amenable to closed book, no?  I could see how that would be a problem for future interests and co-ownership (particularly the four states' rules for tenancy of the entirety), but, otherwise, it seems like you could distinguish yourself by really getting a good foothold in subjects like abandoned, mislaid, and lost (Armory, McAvoy, Hawkins, Hannah v. Peel), fair play and capture norms (rationale soli, Hayak, constructive possession, Keeble), and copyright infringement (Grockster and contributory infringement, Campbell v. Acuff Rose, INS v. AP).

Wally dude.  You had a cool streak going a few months ago.  Now you've devolved to straight up PBJT.  I know you know what you're doing, so, why keep doing it?

It comes and goes.  Sorry.

I try to frontload my stress and chill out as the quarter progresses.  I think it's more efficient, considering that there will be stress at some point.

Legal professionalism is horrible. Our prof is not only boring but has mentioned that attendance isn't really necessary and that if we attend we're welcome to do crosswords on our computers.

Con law is awful. just awful

on the up side, property prof is fun. Crim prof is hilarious: crass, loud and sarcastic *but* her exam is closed book. kill me now. I don't want to do this anymore.

Out of all classes, why would you make property closed book?  No practicing lawyer doesn't look up technical provisions of general warranty deeds as opposed to quitclaims, or the elements of a patent.

wally, thanks?  anyway i found out today my property prof doesnt give a dang about lost/mislaid/abandoned; i believe her position on this when we discussed it today was "this area of the law is too subject to the idiosyncrasies of individual fact patterns, around which judges will mold their rulings in order to arrive at something that is fair to those particular parties.  just think about policy instead!"

i hear it's especially bad for those who haven't been hearing about it since grade school, i.e. out-of-towners.

Ugh. definitely makes it worse. please kill me now?
