Yeaaaaaaaaah that completely slipped my mind and now I'm ridiculously busy, so...
Do "aspiring" lawyers count, TSG? A little too young for college, but that's been basically my dream job for years!
Then make sure it stays only a dream, and find something else in reality. I can't speak for TSG, Fins, Sin, Wings or the other lawyers on here, of course, but if I had my time over again I would have found anything other than the practice of law to do with my life. Trust me on this: what they show you on The Good Wife or LA Law has about as much in common with the actual day-to-day struggle to survive as a lawyer as Armaggeddon has to do with rocket science. And I've heard a lot of nightmare stories out there about how hard it is for US law graduates to find law jobs. Law degrees are massively oversupplied in the US, and you literally are better off as a bus boy than a first year law graduate. Don't take it just from me: http://thepoorparalegal.blogspot.com.au/2011/01/question-for-law-school-graduates-legal.html
I will recommend you one film that, to me personally, reflects the dreariness, the grinding cynicism, and the depressive thing that is the practice of law more accurately than most Hollywood: A Civil Action with John Travolta. It's surprisingly faithful to the book, which is why it succeeds. I felt my guts twist when I watched this film because it struck home so hard.
I'm probably going to end up with a History Degree myself.
At least you'll know how not to repeat mistakes, then!
Well it is my best subject by far
To quote Tenacious D: THAT'S ****ING TEAMWORK.
Oh, and the winners are up:
Whoa, wait, it just dawned on me...I have a degree in English and History!
But can you see why kids love Cinnamon Toast Crunch?
But ramza....Trix are for kids!
GODDAMMIT NAP- I MEAN, SARGE
Well, I guess that's better than Russian literature.
Y'know, sometimes there's just no managing an argument. It's that feeling when you completely object to the other person's statement on every possible level...
Only to realise there is no polite way to tell them you think they're so far beyond wrong they might as well have joined the Fellowship of the Wrong, taken up the One Wrong, and embarked upon a quest to cast it into the fires of Mount Wrong.
Sure there is: "Let N be the set of all possible correct statements. Let x be your statement. Then x is not an element of N."
This is excellent.
I believe we covered this in the chat but:
That was an expecially good post, Sarge.
Ain't nobody axed for yo opinion.
