The Hijacked Booze Thread [Formerly how to deal with LS]

Postby cronous » Tue Jun 07, 2011 9:22 pm

I need some tips to keep me motivated as I am in the final leg of my law school torture session (I am a rising 4L, part time). I already had job in the patent field prior to coming to law school and greatly enjoy my work. However I utterly detest coming to law school. The classes are completely retarded and pointless. I learn nothing that advances my career or makes me more valuable to my employer. I seriously was about to walk to up to one professor one day and tell him that his lectures were little more than mindless drivel that I could not give two sh*ts about. Seriously does anyone have any suggestions to cope with this??? Absolutely pathetic that I have to pay these retards $$ for them to torture me while being I get paid to do work that I enjoy. I must be a masochist or something.

What was your original reason for going to law school? Maybe the problem lies there

Career advancement. I am in the market for nothing more than a piece of paper right now. Heck I would pay triple tuition to buy said piece of paper if it was legal. My problems lies with the fact that I am doing something I hate. People can tolerate doing things they hate for a future benefit, but after 3 years it becomes miserable.

How so? The first post states that I learn nothing that advances my career. This is correct. The piece of paper does advance my career but not because I learned anything.

Most people find their last law school a little tough to get through because you get the itch to just get out of there and start working. Nonetheless, you seem really angry to a degree that exceeds your situation. Do you have a job lined up? Did you not do as well as you thought? Is there financial stress that's getting to you?

This thread is now about whisk(e)y.

Evan Williams is aggressively bad. I have old paint I wouldn't use Evan Williams to remove. There's no reason to stoop that low.

Glenfiddich 12 is in the perfect price point. The bottle is expensive, but it's in the same range as most decent liquors. It's still quite cheap on a "per alcoholic drink" basis, and in my opinion the benefit you get from a more expensive brand or older single malt just isn't worth it. I kind of like the burn, and I -LOVE- flat out -LOVE- the taste and smell the sherry oak cask imparts. A lot of scotch claims to age in sherry casks, but man is it obvious in glenfiddich 12.

Psh, you southerners and your bourbons.

While I enjoy the 'fiddich, I prefer the 'livet, but I'm pretty unadventurous on my scotches (rarely wander outside of Speyside).

Dude, until I'm JOBSECURE, the best I'll do is probably Early (Surly) Times. When I drink, I drink a lot, and I really can't afford it otherwise.

Though I agree with your thoughts about Glenfiddich 12 generally.

I love Jameson's too. Jameson's is probably my favorite whisk(e)y to mix with cola.

Also Jack Daniels isn't classy by any stretch of the imagination, but for some reason I love it in a whisk(e)y sour.

Yeah, I guess if you need your drink of choice to work for a binge it changes the calculations. For that I like to get cheap tequila though. If you're already self-loathing and flagellating yourself, might as well go all the way.

I love Jameson because it's so versatile: sip it, shoot it, mix it, it's all good.

Jack and Cokes are also credited.

Good point re: Jameson's versatility. I was quite pleased when I found out a bar around the corner from me this summer often has $3 Jameson's shots / mixed drinks. That'll do nicely.

Yeah I don't really drink, I binge.

If I make it big though, I'll drink Jack. Lots of Jack. Love the stuff.

A J&C is always credited. Gotta break out that Jim Beam Rye every so often though.

Jim Beam is great, but for some reason I'll only have it if somebody else has already opened a bottle. Never finds its way into my cart when I'm at the liquor store or to the tip of my tongue when I'm at a bar.

Same, but I think for me it's usually just because Jack or Maker's is the first thing that always pops into my head. Once they've got the reflex, they've got you.

Sudden? It sounds to me like folks are answering the question. This might be the most topical thread I've seen in weeks.

Granted, I haven't really been around in weeks, but still.
