What is it supposed to mean? That I'm laughing at the fact that firms are sitting there watching the market right now and thinking, OMG what are we going to do!?! Slash SA classes in half!!!!

I believe you're reading the obscure Internet acronym for "Leaps Off Ledge."

I figured we'd have a another crash but I was hoping it would wait until after offers came out. Even if they didn't end up offering at the end of the summer at least there would be some SA money to subsist off of for a while.

I often wish I'd been born in 1930 or something so I could've experience the post-war boom.

If we're messing with birth dates, I'd rather be born in the future. Granted, it could be a future wracked by nuclear war and pollution, but the upsides are pretty awesome.

fffffffffffffffffffffffffuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

Going to get clerkship-layoff-pwned...

Also, +10 to being born in the future. I mean, look at the technological process of the last 20 years. Give me another 200 (or 2000) years of technology, mmm.

It's a little concerning that the one positive post in this thread was turned into "." - why'd you do that, mths?

I'm not particularly familiar with the reasons for the original crash in legal hiring, but hope this doesn't affect us like it did them.

I don't think anyone is seriously worried about this in and of itself could lead to slashes in legal hiring, it's just the prospect of another looming recession...

At this rate will the future ever even be better? It just gets worse, and now we don't have a World War to save us.

Unless...

Hey Barack, I don't want to be a blabbermouth but I heard Putin and Medvedev saying some pretty awful things about your mother...

But seriously I'd take shit law over trudging through siberia getting shot at by crazy russians. If Call of Duty taught me anything, it's to not mess with the ruskies

My great uncle (from Poland) was imprisoned in Siberia by the Soviets a long time ago, and eventually was released, and came to America. His stories of Siberia made it sound pretty shitty. I think I'll take shitlaw as well.

This is what the country gets for electing tea party nut jobs who hijack the economy and point out its weaknesses. Ridiculous. We're so screwed.

Sitting at the desk in my major wall street firm. No panic, work coming in at a steady pace, everyone is busy.

Last time stocks fell because industry hit a tough patch. Today stocks are falling because people are selling stocks. Corporate deal, litigation, and regulation spending is humming along, IPOs are hot, and companies are sitting on massive war chests plus strong earnings.

Chill.

War chests that they aren't using to create jobs or use to invest because they are all scared shitless about the environment Obama has created.
