Never mind any of that, I dropped it a long time ago, said I was mostly arguing to argue, noticed ken was a cancer survivor that seemed like a genuinly good guy, and I apologized. That was it from me.... Until ken came back to it like a middle schooler trying to guilt me cause he was hit by a truck.

At first I did not read the NYT article cause I felt pushed into it.... But I'm midway through it and I read this seemingly relevant nugget....

if his memoir is about bad things happening to him, is he calling himself sexy? I am really laughing out loud imagining how self absorbed this guy seems. I hope the title of his book is referencing sexy people in general, and that he is not throwing himself in that group
You apologized but you act like people (basically me) misinterpreted your post... When in fact, it was the only interpretation.
"I don't mean to toot my own horn.... But BEEP BEEP"
You're the quintessence of what is wrong with many pre-law/law students: so certain that they are smart, clever... amazingly analytical. In reality, you are likely only mediocre in all of these categories. The bell-curve is a bitch, man.
Your original approach to the thread (i.e. dissecting it as if it were an LSAT passage) not only shows that you have the wit and social tact of a tadpole on crack, but it also shows that you have very poor interpretation skills.
Ken did in fact likely only write the post for his stated reason... He calls it "because I am so thankful to the TLS community for continuing to inspire me to achieve new heights of greatness. I too want to be a mirror to reflect your own brilliance."
In reality, this translates to "I am writing this post because I am so thankful that the thousands of miserable nimrods that use this site have inspired me to exit a profession so saturated with toxic personalities. By leaving law I have achieved great success and wealth. I also hope to inspire some of you users that are less miserable, and perhaps even intelligent, to stay open to ventures outside of your myopic view of the future as a lawyer. Use your talents - your own brilliance, whatever that might be - to succeed."
Nucky, you ignorant fool. How can something so transparent escape your reasoning for so long? Don't answer that.
In reality, many (dare I say most) of the users on TLS are going to have very unhappy lives in a putrefied field. He is trying to instill hope for these users to utilize for future reference. "Hey, when your up to your eyes in debt, work in a sweatbox basement, and doing doc review $12/hr for a living -- don't jump off the roof of the building. Mirror me. Keep your mind open to new possibilities and don't be afraid to take them."
Your other complaints (i.e. his book title "why do bad things happen to sexy people", his mentioning that he got hit by a vehicle in addition to having cancer, and referring to you as "fucky") are on matters that are SOO beyond your comprehension. Let us analyze:
Book title: tongue-in-cheek humor
Getting hit by a vehicle: a jab at you for originally mentioning/acting like his cancer was pertinent to this thread
Fucky: lighthearted joke. (if he wanted to be mean, he could say much worse)
If you are anything IRL like your persona in this thread, dude, you're simply insufferable.
Try to be a human. Know your limitations. If you can't color inside the lines - so be it, just don't hang up your artwork for the world to see.
Enjoy doc review.
