Immovable Object v Unstoppable Annoyance

Okay, here’s my new gripe about law school, simplified:

Professor: who can tell me why Person P sued Person D?
Garvey: For the reasons A, B, and C.
Professor: Not even close. Anyone else? No? The answer is simple, it is because of reasons A, B and C, dumbasses.
Garvey: (head explodes)

This has happened at least once every class since the semester started and I’m beginning to think there’s some ugly inside joke this fraternity-turned-law-school is keeping from me. Yeah, I know I’ll catch on sooner or later. Eventually a professor will ask me a question and I’ll know to tap my laptop the correct number of times before I shout “I dedicate the third and final line of reasoning of the night to Cardinal Puff, Puff, Puff!”

Speaking of which, happy birthday to Todd, who is a true Cardinal.

To close, here are just a couple of interesting links to get you through the middle of the week:

The pseudo-blog - People send this guy anonymous postcards revealing some dirty secret they'd otherwise keep bottled up. Hey, that's what blogs are for, I say.

The game - I may be the only fan of film noir in the world who knows nothing about it. I'm also a big fan of point-and-click story games, so Grim Fandango and The Goat in the Grey Fedora are both favorites of mine. TGITGF, though, is free.

welcome to law school. soon, your soul will be crushed and you'll stop answering questions and start looking at wedding websites and/or baby websites during class.

and considering you've already done one.... ;)

Objection! Student can't very well search for your freaky porn sites if his screen is covered in pieces of brain.

You'll also learn that you're saying "A, B, and C" and the prof is saying "a, b and c". Slightly different and therefore wrong. THEN your head explodes. On the russian porn sites the girl in front of you is surfing. Or you can just sit next to "anonymous" who has to leave class because she's laughing so hard she stops breathing. Then you don't remember the question in the first place...
