Instead it's just people not sure what their score is. Sad.


I think that my karma is actually improved by killing all of the ants I possibly can. They really are horrible creatures that serve no discernable purpose so far as I can tell.

Jump back. If this were a video game, your little Karmic level would be pretty depleted from all those USEFUL INDUSTRIOUS GOD FEARING ANTS you slaughtered mercilessly while waiting for your LSAT.

(And yes, while not about the October LSAT, I think my response qualifies as an irrational thought lol.)

PS. Spiders are one of the five principal exceptions to Gamp's Law of ElementalTransfiguration Karma.

PS Again. NO, you do not gain points for NOT slaughtering things, you bloodthirsty human.



damn, alright then I'll build an ant house in my room, that should give me an edge.

1. Spiders.
2. Mosquitos.
3. Voldemort.
4. Earwigs.
5. Bees/wasps.

I'm allergic to spider bites, mosquito bites, and bees/wasps, though, so maybe I'm biased.

I have a spider bite on my leg that is still itchy/weird and it happened over a year ago :(.

Um... yes...

That okay?

EDIT: I was definitely thinking you could just check my profile and find this out, but then realized it doesn't say whether I am a girl on my profile. Eh. I guess I thought you guys could figure it out.

Expecting 175-179. Anything outside that would be a surprise. And I don't think its irrational.

I don't like unpleasant surprises so I refuse to have such confidence in myself. This way, I leave the way open only for pleasant surprises.

Me too. I've now somewhat successfully convinced myself that I expect a 140.

Spiders are literally the worst. The house I live in is literally in the middle of the woods. No mowing lawns, but raking leaves is pretty much the worst, and if I were looking for spiders to kill I could probably go at the rate of 10-20 a day.

Once I was talking with my mother in the living room and I noticed something yellow out of the corner of my eye...turned out it was a spider that was pretty much the size of a shotglass that had been living in the couch (along with three or four very similar spiders).

(Cornell, she doesn't)

Okay this is traumatizing. I can predict what kind of nightmares I'll have tonight (120 LSAT + shotglass spider killer combo).

AWESOME I haven't even managed to convince myself of that! I'm down to a 159 at this point.

And sorry Cornell, I'm on the other coast. I'm sure everyone will be drinking together in spirit as we check our scores on Friday, though!

EDIT: Incompetentia got in there before me.

Also, now I need to make my dog sleep in my room so he can kill any shotglass sized spiders that may emerge. Because he kills spiders. Isn't that a good dog?

Forgot to mention that I had not noticed it climb all the way up to my shoulder.

I, uh, don't wear that shirt anymore due to the stain

Is this thread basically the TLS suicide watch hotline?
If so, I'm in the right place.

i think those fast-moving cockroaches are worse than spiders (esp when you wake up with them on your face) - ah, I miss Eastern Europe.

That reminds me of the time when I let my dog out and there was this huge red spider dangling on the other side of the sliding glass door. I picked up this giant box of garbage bags and squished him against the door, but it was too heavy for me to bring the box around again so I kind of slid/dropped it. THEN I COULDN'T FIND THE CORPSE. This was at like 1 am and I was awake for a few more hours convinced that there was a spider Inferi running around trying to come eat me up in revenge.

He never showed, but I seriously don't understand where his body went. Unless some of his friends rapidly came and carried him off.

UGH NOW I HAVE TO GO TO SLEEP WITH VISIONS OF SPIDERS DANCING IN MY HEAD.
