As much as I'd like to hype my school, an MSU Law student can't feel all that superior about bar pass rates, compared to Cooley.



I dunno dude, that's a pretty smug thing to say.

No, being smug about the smug isn't smug, it cancels out. They teach that in law school. At least, in the better law schools.

Dismissing smuggery to students of a lower tiered law school solely based on their schools standing, is itself smuggery , regardless of whether or not the subject is smug.

I wrote a long response, but this threadjack has gone too long already. I will distill it down to an analogy. If someone subscribed to Time magazine, and you looked down your nose at them because Time magazine is lousy, you're being smug. If someone bragged about subscribing to Time magazine, and you rolled your eyes at them because, regardless of what you think about Time magazine, subscribing to it is certainly nothing to brag about, you're not being smug. We might have to agree to disagree.

Really, anyone who brags about being in law school is a fool. If they're at a top tier school, they're douchebags and fools. If they're at some marginal school, they're douchebags and fools and also delusional.

with her sons best friend The woman was in her late s slightly overweight not particularly fashionable but she had a real zest for life the young guy was and absolutely gorgeous When asked what it was that made her so appealing he said it was her attitude to life she was mature confident and wise yet still had a sense of adventure and whole lot of naughtiness She said it was his lack of expectation and demands that made it work so well Four years later and the relationship was still going strongMe if Im honest I would have to say that if you can pull a younger model good on you girl but when I researched cougars on the internet I was quite surprised at the varying degree of opinion some think its quite harmless whilst others think cougars are the devil in disguise and should be burned at the stake Another surprise was the large number of dating websites available for those women looking for the younger man and vise versa It certainly didnt take long for the trend to catch onHowever my interpretation was completely turned on its head by one website in particular It advertised itself as the ultimate dating site for real cougars A beautiful woman was pictured on the front hot sexy and classy my understanding of what a cougar was exactly Their definition read something like this women in their sexual prime completely at ease with whom and what they are beautiful classy independent wealthy women with fantastic careers real head turners I clicked onto one of the profile descriptions and nearly fell off my seat There was a picture of a huge pair of breasts And what a pair they were I had to click back to the front page to make sure that I hadnt read things wrong no definitely states beautiful and classy This completely turned everything upside down I clicked onto a few more and there inbetween some profile pictures of stunningly beautiful classy women were more boobs and more naked bodies I immediately felt really sorry for those women who were genuine cougars and took their status very seriously The pictures just absolutely cheapened the whole site and the whole cougar concept no wonder there were such varying views on the subject There were women dressed in cheap animal prints with bleached blonde hair and bright red lips dont get me wrong Im quite partial to that look myself but these women looked dirty and certainly not sophisticated or classy looking at all Could these women really portray themselves as cougars I mean whos to say that theyre not However genuine cougars I feel would be rather horrified that these less than classy ladies actually believed themselves to be in the same leaguePersonally I dont perceive cougar as a derogatory word and any woman who regards herself as a member of this club should see it as a privilege never an embarrassment Real cougars have worked long and hard to earn their stripes and shouldnt feel discouraged by individual comments When was the last time anyone got upset over an older man going out with a younger woman Double standards I fear However that said I do believe there are two definitive types of cougar the genuine ones who are classically beautiful sassy confident and know exactly what they want and the newly named vougar those who are vulgar and derogatory in their approach belonging more on a porn site than a dating one


And on a side note, as I was typing this post, I got a notification from the antivirus server that another employee got a virus that seems suspiciously like it probably came from a similar email.

I'm just gonna go around this place with a notecard taped to my shirt that says "WALLET INSPECTOR." I'll fuckin' clean up.

"Yeah, i'm looking at page 36 of your catalog. Your Ludwig drum sticks. Yeah, how much are they?"

(It says $7.48 right there on the page)

"OK, and if i wanna order 9 how much would that be?"

I dunno dude--how does math work?

Lol at this guy but look at it this way
If he had just said "I'll take nine," presumably you would have done the math for him. That's the clever play.
He's just being upfront with his laziness. Confirmed drummer.

While I don't have both sides/context, could "How much would nine be?" dude have been asking about a total with taxes/shipping?
