I was a Knight of the Golden Horseshoe. Got tapped on the shoulder with by Gov. Bob Wise and everything.


Didn't even list it on my academic resume in high school.

An MS in IE is basically useless when you're practicing in securities litigation.

GULC is not so good a school that graduates don't struggle to find work.

He might be from WV.

Even if he was at Yale and graduated in 2005, that was 6 years ago. Most associates don't last that long. Furthermore a lot of associates got laid off in 2008-09.

Why are people so shocked to find that law isn't model and bottles. 60K in WV is a pretty comfy lifestyle. Especially if you did a couple years in big law and paid your debt off already.

West Virginia is actually pretty beautiful. Not everyone is obsessed with NYC. Some people like trees.

It's 48th in median income too! Prior state slogans include, "almost heaven," and "open for business."

Yeah, let's bash West Virginia for it's lack of political-economic power! Fuck the coal miners who helped build our nation, and fuck their progeny too! Sarcasm is so cool!

On the real, I wouldn't want to live in West Virginia. But I'm not from West Virginia. If my family and friends all lived there, it wouldn't be so bad. It really is a gorgeous state.

Honestly, fuck the coal miners. If they had never found coal in those hills, people there would be just as poor and at least not have cancer from drinking all the shit that runs off the mines into the water supply.

The rest of the country wouldn't have shit either, well except for agricultural areas I guess. The industrial parts of the country were built on coal and still rely on it.

Mostly because people won't stop using the shitty, dirty energy source because it's still so goddamn cheap, environment be damned.

It's "cheap" they don't have to pay for the damage they do to other people. I wouldn't say anything ill about the miners though. They're just regular folks looking for make a living.

Yeah but it would never have been started. I mean I guess if you hate everything industry has ever given us then you might have a point but I wouldn't want to go back to before coal power. I kind of doubt one day people would all of a sudden discover nuclear power or figure out how to use natural gas effectively.

It's also pretty dangerous work.
