Btw...in no way have you substantiated nor argued any point to my last post other than to claim a "good laugh" and "sarcasm". Hope that works out for you in the court of law...I desperately hope you didn't spend too much for that Penn education to fall into the median...my firm won't accept you then.

Now I feel like we've both lost people wanting to come to Philly due to our pettyness...oy. All I can say is...at least it's not as insane as New York?

And yes, I'm not asking the question, we're done here.


Signed,

Someone who has a big firm job and went to law school for (pretty much) free...hence why I can buy a house with relatively no mortgage at 28. Good luck with everything.

Peace out.

That's probably because you haven't made any points, and I don't think you have to worry about my post-graduation employment prospects... I have the feeling I'll end up in pretty good shape, even if your firm (whatever firm that may be) ultimately passes me over. Best of luck to you too. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you've just been having a lousy day. Happens to the best of us. :wink:

Does dick-measuring in regards to your house and "(pretty much) free" law school education work in the court of law?

BigLawOrBust, does your jealousy usually manifest itself in the same manner?

As for HeavenWood, he usually has the same snobbish attitude. It's not his fault - he's from the "Main Line."

Hell, I'd rather live in Pennsauken than the Main Line - the people are much nicer. Oh, and country clubs are generally for douchebags. Try a real sport like alpine skiing, hockey, or football. And yes, I drink beer, not martinis.

lol you don't know me. I'm proud to say I have friends from all walks of life. I'm allowed to like having nice things and living in nice places.

And don't knock country clubs. Or golf. Fun fact: there are quite a few "working man's" clubs out there.

I drink beer too. Let's be friends?

Sure! I'll start with a question. What's your guys' favorite beer drinking place in Philly?

I'm still new to city life, but this far, definitely City Tap House. Huge selection of every type of beer. After finals are over, I want to try out Monk's too. They have a great selection of Belgian brews.

City Tap House is awesome. Wednesday happy hours are incredible there... half price everything. Massive selection.

The Blockely is nice for eye candy. Same with Cavanaugh's.

City Tap House is pricey. I stick to Mad Mex. Short walk.

Landmark Americana has really good daily specials. Also a short walk.

Landmark is right across from Drexel Law. Good place for happy hour. I hate the late night scene there. Savas is right up the street and much more chill.

I'm a fan of Landmark myself. As for the late night scene, if you can make it down to 2nd and Chestnut, that's always a good time.

Who said anything about jealousy? I was just pointing out the fallacious "I'm better than you" argument employed by the last poster. You should know about ad homs.

Edit: Since you like ad homs, I'll commit one myself. I just read you go to Drexel -- no wonder you're so bitter!

I used to work right at 2nd and Chestnut, on top of Plough and Stars. I am a bit tired of the scene there. Especially after they got rid of the Khyber (although they reopened it, it isn't the same in many ways).

Nope, I just tuned this out when R6 couldn't differentiate between an argument and a statement and the PC police took over... but thanks for thinking of me guys! Makes me feel all warm and squishy inside... just like a spleen should feel...

I am just glad you finally realized what an Internet argument was.

Edit: I couldn't tell if you are actually a law student, but sometime statement and argument are the same thing ;)

Aaaand sometimes they're not...like when you respond to a charge of playing the PC police and the rationality/humor of suburban stereotypes (the larger argument to which I was referring) with an ad hominem attack in an attempt to marginalize my argument.

btw I didn't see you playing PC police when Beach was cracking about GA and Haverford students (and I'll leave alone the fact that you responded to a charge about a group of people by holding yourself out as a paragon of virtue for half of those folks... wonderful, wonderful argument right there)

But you're right... I don't know anything. Great last dig. Thanks for putting me back in my place... on the internet... in a forum... that doesn't matter... filled with people who are super serious... about everything... :wink:

I, for one, am offended by the implication that we take everything seriously.

not really

I have no idea how this thread could ever make you want to return to Philly...
