I really love that this thread has completely switched tracks to the point which when we get back on track, we get back on the booze track.

...that's not the original track? Oh right, hating law school!

Whatever happened to OP? This has become the "Stop knocking TTT schools" thread all over again...

Scotch + Arm Wrestling + making out with hot chicks = right track.

Troof.

Ak - definitely go to the Sam Tour, but make sure you hit up Doyle's afterward. Everyone seems to skip it and it's the best part. The Harpoon tasting room is pretty frikkin awesome too.

OP here. I guess the answer is: get wasted. I think I just have a serious case of senioritis boosted by the fact that my full time job throughout law school is in the field I want to practice. Obviously I am luckier then many, but in other ways it makes what I am forced to learn and/or write in law school that much more retarded.

So it's not so much that you HATE it, you've just had enough of it. So yes, I believe the credited response would indeed be alcohol, in as many forms possible. :D

I guess the theme is that it's less retarded when you're pleasantly buzzed off quality spirits.

Start by avoiding any bottle that can't spell whisky correctly.

Also, the spellcheck here is prejudiced against whisky. Or Google chrome's, one of the two.

In my book, if it's scotch - it's Whisky. If it's not, it's Whiskey.

That's about right. Bourbon, Rye, Canadian: all whiskey. I think we're just emphasizing that if you want to develop a proper palette, you'll stop drinking those spirits that spell it 'wrong'.

That's just ignorant though. I don't look for an extra sharp cheddar taste in American Cheese, but American Cheese would be the first thing I go for when making a cheeseburger at the beach.

They all have their places.

Yes, that was my point. Start by avoiding any bottle that has an 'e' :)

Well yeah I had so much of it that I HATE it. If it had actual value to either my career or my life I could look past it. But the fact that it is due to little more than mindless slavishness to tradition is what infuriates me. I have sworn to never take a single credit of higher education in my life after law school.

Noted. Top modestly priced (no more than 40 per bottle) whisky?

Johnny is a blended scotch, and rightfully deserves scorn.

I've been drinking this with tonic. It fills most emotional voids rather well.
