You were right!


Half-right, since it was a page-long non-explanation.

OP strikes me as someone who kicked off his PS with "From a monumentally youthful age, I have ever been incredibly fond of arguing" and will be massively disappointed by his first set of grades.

Dude, FWIW, when I googled your last name (trying to figure out if there was some alternative meaning besides "fucker of fat girls") the links I got were almost all porn. So. Why not be constructive and answer the question?

Well then the definition sounds like it's not that bad, if the OP will just provide it.

(Also, hi el terrible, how goes it?)

I speak near-native Spanish, and it straight means "fucker of fat girls." I'm not sure if that's what the OP meant with it, but that's what it means. I'm sure this pedantic nitwit *could* come up with a page-long explanation, but there it is. Took no time at all to explain.

Google "follagordas" and take a look at the results.


Dem Okies ain't speak no good Spanish. Can't rope a steer either.

I feel like this is really in the wrong forum. This is more of a never-asked question than a FAQ.

OP, many people have shared their thoughts with you and instead of engaging you just continue to say, "thanks but I disagree so you're wrong" and then you get angry that nobody has engaged with you in the exact manner that you wanted. I'm not even sure what kind of conversation you were/are looking for here, to be honest. I wish you good luck. I also hope in a few months you read back through this thread with fresh eyes and notice that your tone was pretty dismissive, rude, and condescending.

If your only goal in life is to attract women then you should become a doctor. If your only goal is attracting fat women then either will work.

Hmm, thanks for your comment. I would challenge you or anyone else to find one instance where I flat out called somebody wrong when providing their response to the actual topic. Obviously, I could be wrong (as I have said multiple times on this thread), but I don't recall there being a single instance In this entire thread where i was the one calling someone else wrong when they actually "engaged the question" (and didn't resort to personal insults and off-topic speculation). Perhaps you're referring to times in which I have criticized a lack of constructive feedback or guidance?

I also don't recall getting angry. Tone is a tough thing to accomplish on a wRitten forum, though I tried my best to come across as respectful. Obviously that doesn't mean I always succeeded, and I understand I need to improve. Anyway, I appreciate the feedback, and I agree that personal reflection and self awareness are important traits, so if I'm still on the site in a few months I'll certainly look back with fresh eyes and an open mind :)

You're the one who thinks Okie is an insult, but I guess some city-folk gotta be rodeo clowns.

Your quote splicing abilities are TMZ caliber. Rereading the surrounding elements of the post that you cherry-picked "personal observations" from should answer your doubts, though.

OP is obviously classless, but the fervor with which he is attacked is unwarranted. Law students are more obsessed with their reputations than any other professionals. Historically, if you research how and why C&F was instituted, it was not to protect the public but to safeguard the reputation of the legal industry.

In addition, most top law students are primarily motivated by prestige to the extent that being motivated by money is frowned upon. In most professions, it's perfectly acceptable to be motivated by both helping people and making money and being motivated by prestige is perceived as narcissistic and odd. While OP didn't help the matter, the reason this devolved into a dumpster fire is because most of us don't want to come to terms with our own vain insecurities. Vanity isn't bad in and of itself, but 99% of us are vain and self-delusions are not a good look.

This is sort of what I mean. Instead of thinking about whether the person you disagree with is saying something constructive, you seem to be coming to the conclusion that because you disagree, the person you disagree with does not have a legitimate opinion. Multiple times, people have said something that you disagreed with and in response you told them to come back with a more legitimate or constructive comment. You are not the constructive comment police, and there has been plenty of engaging discussion here that you have waived off because you seem to be seeking some chart delineating the differences between people who choose to go to top law schools versus people who choose to go to top medical schools when the only difference that matters is that people who go to top law schools want to be lawyers and people who go to top medical schools want to be doctors. You seem to want to generalize all people who go to a top law school and all people who go to a top medical school, and yet I'm sure if you think about the people who are in your class at law school you can see that there is a huge spectrum of interests, personalities, backgrounds, etc. Generalizations here don't really work, in my opinion. The difference between law students and medical students is the professional end goal, and that's the only generalization that I really think is fair to make.

And to address your point that you don't recall getting angry... I have interpreted many of your posts as being passive-aggressive, particularly the ones where you respond to someone's earnest attempt to engage with your question with "you don't seem to be offering anything constructive" or something along those lines. This type of response indicates that you don't think their response was worthy of your attention, let alone your engagement. To borrow some of your own language, I would challenge you to recognize that the people who are seeing issue with your initial question/premise ARE trying to be constructive and engaging and really aren't trying to insult you.

You're really good at deflecting. I just wanted to confirm you're a certifiable idiot. Congratulations on getting admitted to YhS. You hit the lotto re:luck.

Blue, Why did you ignore all the compliments, concessions, and expressions of gratitude I made towards you in my last post? How about my statement that I'll take into account everything you said? Why did you only take into account the text you bolded? Also, you never actually seemed to address the content of the bolded text. Im trying to point out that I don't think I'm nearly as dismissive as you are characterizing me, especially since, like I said, I don't recall ever calling someone wrong when they engaged the topic? I also agreed with several individuals' posts without a single caveat, including HonestAdvice, Hiko, and the guy with the Johnny Bravo avatar (don't remember the username, I'm sorry).

But Honest Advice's posts don't answer the question, assume this is all about you trying to pull chicks, and are also riddled with weird assumptions.

people aren't mad. they're frustrated.

1) you posit a question.
2) people told you your question is (a) improperly framed and (b) pointless.
3) you insist on people providing an answer to your shitty, pointless question.
4) people reiterate that your question is shitty and pointless.
5) you double down
6) repeat

Filter that through your weird, stilted, faux-intellectual posting style and the weirdness that revolves around your name, we arrive to where we are presently.

the weirdness is exponential because the entire discourse would be fairly civil, even trivial for a normal, competent internet poster, much less a HYS law student.
