Cardozo kid pretending to be homeless

I used to want to "live off the land" when I was younger, which seems pretty much like what this kid is doing (just in Manhattan). FWIW, I don't think he's as big of a douche as the headline would lead you to expect; he doesn't seem to be comparing his experience to that of real homeless people, and I think he only gave the interview (stupid decision) because he thought people would find his penny-pinching decisions interesting.

Yeah no kidding. He really should not have done an interview.

"NYC's [largely psychotic or mentally impaired] homeless population should just get gym memberships, bro."

Seriously though... This is the problem with the legal education system... They let this fucktard into a school. And a pretend-good-school at that.

Reminds me of people who go to dude ranches for vacations. . . if cowboys were a marginalized population with disproportionately high amount of mental illness and the last thing them needing having some tool telling them that all their problems would be solved if they just spent a little bit of money on a gym.

What I learned from this - being homeless is not that bad so long as you keep your homelessness a secret, have the money to afford a gym membership (where they don't know you're homeless), stay away from homeless people, sleep at your law school, and have the opportunity to not be homeless at anytime.

It's always been my dream to be homeless. What an inspiration.

To be fair, this could actually end up being useful information for many at Cadozo.

Great zing.

About the article: I can easily see law school attracting the type of person who reacts to law school by trying to get in touch with their neanderthal "ancestors." Also, the comments are terrible.
