Will people still respect you if you're a dentist?

What will you do to cover the stench of an abscess?

To be fair, a dentist gets paid 1K to do a 20 minute crown. Who cares? Without money, life sucks

Exactly. Self-driving cars will be popular eventually, but not for at least 20 years. People aren't going to immediately jump to autonomous cars like Google has; instead, normal cars will slowly become self-driving as manufacturers gradually add driver assistance features.


It's not about what people prefer for trucks. It's about what's cheaper. It's much cheaper to buy a self driving truck than to pay a truckers salary (which can be quite high) and benefits. You think Walmart is going to keep hiring truckers once autonomous trucks are available and legal? The moment self driving trucks are legal is the moment that virtually every trucker loses their job. Maybe a few freelance gigs will still be available here and there by small companies that can't afford the upfront cost of an automated one. But any trucker that is part of a fleet is screwed.

OP don't marry a trucker.

If you wanted to be happy and didn't care about money, you wouldn't be on a law forum and aspiring to be a lawyer. Law sucks too

I don't think you're getting it. Happiness comes with the hot DOCTOR husband/wife.

Huh? I don't disagree. I'm saying "please, tell me more!"

If I'm not poor do I still need the DOCTOR husband/wife?

OP, explain.

My financial plan is to have a bunch of babies. If you have 15-20, then one of them is bound to be a famous actor. Then know who's paying your bills? That's right-- actor baby.

Do you make all of the babies take acting classes?

What if you want to have an acting FAMILY like the Baldwins??

Yes because you also need parental approval and you can't have parental approval without a DOCTOR husband/wife.

OK I was trolling a bit about the RICH DOCTOR WIFE/HUSBAND part but it's funny, no? Lots of asians actually think that way

I'm beginning to think Polly's whole goal here is to find a BigLaw attorney about to make partner.
Nice strategy, Polly. Very savvy.

The wider the age gap the sooner he'll kick and you'll be independently wealthy. Run it by Tiger Mom before you turn your nose up at it.

Don't use your Asian heritage as an excuse for being spineless. Not all Asians have such a warped sense of reality. You should've majored in computer science.

Your use of CAPS is unsettling and undermines your credibility.

The use of CAPS is the least of Polly's credibility problems.

Don't see why not. There are JD/MD programs, I am sure one could argue for a dentistry version.
