Were there any numbers/statistics flaws within any weaken, strengthen, or flaw type questions?

one of the oddest posters around, asks inane questions about statistics problems everywhere after recent tests.

Why has the OP been so persistent in asking this question for months now?

The thought that someone actually spends their time asking this question every few weeks for this extended period of time is scary which leads me to hope he's just a flame.

If he is a flame, he is the most determined flame I've ever seen. Props to him.

But what is he flaming? Every time I see his posts I imagine some guy, locked in his basement by his parents to study for the LSAT, they end up forgetting him and 10 years later he is still studying for the LSAT in the basement trying to analyze each new lsat as it comes out.

Someone this determined... OP probably planned this for months and made sure the execution was perfect. Maybe he wants to do a subtle flame w/o anyone realizing he is a flame.

Or.... he's just really determined in prepping for the LSAT.

Mental illness is possibly a cause. I'm not kidding, semi sane flamers usually have some sort of an entertaining (at least for themself) rhyme or reason to it. LSAT prep/seeking LS admission and internet boards about it seem to attract a fair amount of crazies, especially ones that can be super smart one minute and totally off the richter scale psycho the next. I've met many over the years including a few classmates while I was in LS.

From my experience it seems that bipolar disorder is much more frequent per capita in the 'I want to be a lawyer' population than in the general population. When in a manic state before it escalates all the way to totally delusional psychotic level those people are super smart and can work miracles.

I've seen it live and in person many times.

During 1L 1st semester at USC LS the seating chart in contracts class had me sitting next to a girl with a Ph.D from Stanford that had also been some sort of professor there for graduate classes. During classes she randomly blurted out weird video game noises like 'bleep' 'bzzap', etc. It was loud when she did it and everyone including the professor kept looking at us to see what the deal was. I just sat there with my finger pointing at her whenever everyone looked back. She started bringing her dog (a lassie dog, not a small one) to classes and hiding it under the desk in the last several weeks of first semester. Darn dog tried to chew off and eat my shoes a few times during contracts lectures. She did not make it to finals or to 2nd semester.

A friend of mine that is now a Columbia LS grad recently told me about a classmate there that went nutzo, got committed and Dx'd with bipolar disorder and has been undergoing inpatient treatment ever since.

My ExGF has two BA's and a masters degree. I met her several years ago when she found me on LSD and wanted LSAT tutoring. During that first meeting for tutoring she blew me away with how smart she was. She learned really fast and quickly nailed every logic game I put in front of her like a pro. Later down the road she went psycho and turned out bipolar. I currently have a restraining order against her, got to see her get cuffed and arrested 7 times at my place, she basically lives in and out of psych wards now while being a fugitive on the run with 5 warrants out for her arrest.

Lame pointless flames sometimes are people that went totally mental, just saying...

(fixating on one fairly pointless or insignificant thing repeatedly for a long time is a hallmark psychotic trait)

Well....since this has turned into the crazy thread:
I know a girl who went temporarily crazy after giving birth. She thought she was the virgin mary and that her newborn son was jesus. Turns out she wasn't sleeping after the birth. They put her in the psycho tank for like 5 days, gave her some meds and after about 3 weeks on the meds, she was fine. Perfectly normal since. But she hasn't had any kids since either.

Another girl I know got hella whacked out on ritalin and lortabs. Didn't sleep for a week or so and had to be committed for another week to recover. This was a recurring problem but as far as I know she has been sober for over a year now.

Sorry Jeffort couldn't help myself.

I'm not sure if OP has a mental disorder, but it is very weird that he asks the same question. I remember after October he made a new thread asking the same question as well as posting the question in every other thread.

At least he's consistent. I'm going to check the forums February for the sole purpose to see if he posts a thread about number/statistics flaws,

Oh, how I have enjoyed reading these latest posts.
I don't live in my parent's basement - I am a graduate student in psychology actually living in the U.S.
I am obsessed with the LSAT, but only because I like it so much. Been tutoring for over 7 years now, so that should say a little of how much I am dedicated to it for merely genuine interest and passion.

Jeffort - I found it funny that an attorney out of law school has so much time to go on law boards - must not be getting enough clients, eh? Also, your comment about more bipolar per capita with people who show interest in law versus per capita in the general population - do you have any empirical evidence? In my experience, people like to spout off information with no real basis for doing so. I am sure an intellect as yourself will also realize that the number of law aspirants and the number in the general population also varies greatly, thus almost assuredly guaranteeing that law aspirants will have a higher proportion of bipolars, if indeed that is the case, though doubtful.

Also, I will not be posting about the February test, because it is not released so there is no real purpose. I only ask questions about tests I can get a hold of after they are released via cambridge lsat or some other entity.

Enjoyed the comments, truly. Nice to know that I can attract so much attention!

Au Revoir!
