I so badly want to believe.

OP: Is there anything you can say to verify authenticity?

Also, serious questions only please.

Romo is smarter than op. I don't think he could dumb it down this much, even if he tried very hard.

Agreed. It just makes no sense - a join date in 2009 but such a long history of obscure posts, it has to be some sort of alt.

I can assure you that if it was my alt, it would be a lot more lulzy. :lol:

OP, it sounds you are set. Between that acting experience in high school and your friends working in hospitals, I think you have all you need. And I'm sure this solo will sell you her firm.

Go get em, tiger.

Make it worth your while and sue her at the end of the summer. Its illegal to make someone work for you and not pay if the employer isn't government or a non profit.

Sorry, that was way more snark then I should have given.

I just feel like some of you guys must have lived very sheltered lives or something when you can actually say something like "man, this just can't be true" to like the most obvious flame on the board right now.

No worries. I actually feel that people like flame OP might really exist...which is scary.

It's not too much of a stretch to think that students at lower schools would mass mail solo's in a desperate attempt to land a summer legal job. From there, it's not hard to imagine a lawyer offering an unpaid position. An indirect statement about Westlaw access might follow. Something like, "We don't have any extra computers, so can you use your own laptop **coughandfreewestlawcough** for research?" Lastly, I'm sure there are guys who would brag about landing such a job.

Yeah but if you read his posts he is definitely flaming. One of the first giveaways was him bragging about "wearing an American flag pin" on his suit that he bought off the rack or whatever. While that could actually happen irl, the way he said it was just WAY too much.

A noble attempt, OP. Noble indeed. In the future, remember that subtlety goes a long way.

That jumpjump thread... there's just no words for how awesome it was. The pompousness just rocked my dome.
