However, I do have some questions for you...
Do you think that the economy is real.. and if so, do you see it as a valuable tool?



I mean, there is definitely an exchange of goods and services. But Economics is pretty useless I think; it's such an inexact science. It always "assume all other things are equal", when a lot of times they are not. I mean simple economic principles have some value, like "supply and demand", but talking about the economy as a whole is just an abstraction and I feel like numbers can be twisted or even made up pretty much to suit whatever point of view the author or speaker is trying to purport.

I think economics and psychology are comparable in how inexact they both are, and in how they still sometimes can be useful.

Why do you ask?

Shut up! No more optimism. We are getting our scores at the earliest on Monday, and you should be thankful for it.


Yeah it was awesome. And then I watched the first three episodes of season two. Especially with spring break coming up I'll be done with all four seasons by the 25th I think, pretty easily

Did you guys forget the part where these don't matter because it's undisclosed so nothing is posted there anyway?

I'm not asking about the study of economics, but if you think an actual economy exists. By that, I just mean the involvement and interaction of constituents of a state who participate in the exchange of goods and services.
If you agree that an economy exist, do you think such a concept could be valuable to you?

LOL at the debates going on.

The data size (i.e. 140 kb, etc) has always been there. This is my first time taking the exam and I looked at the page carefuly a couple of weeks ago and noticed them and thought how bad it would be if the sizes matched my lsat score, i.e. 140 =140. Then I saw the other sizes in the 300s and didn't think much of it. So the data was always there. We might get out scores on Monday, but Tuesday is most likely.

Second, atheist wins because, let's face it, if you're an adult who still believes in a magical creature in the sky who grants you wishes and an entrance to a really fun carnival depending on whether you've been naughty or nice during your life time, there is something wrong with you.

Third, saying you don't like gay marriage is like saying you don't like and don't want that someone else eats cake just because you're fat and on a diet. If someone's parts don't work with someone of an opposite sex, but only work with someone of the same sex, and they fall in love, which is possible, with someone of same sex, then there is just as much reason for them to get married if two people of different sexes were in love, had their parts work well, and were getting married. To deny that requires you to read a book.

Finally, abortion is not killing a baby just as using a condom, birth control, masturbating, etc is not killing a baby. Just because one cell (zygote) has a bigger potential to become a baby, as compared to a sperm or egg cell, does not mean it IS a baby.

I too am a first time test taker and I'm pretty sure the sizes have always been on page.

So.... here's a topic:

Who thinks the president had Andrew Breitbart whacked to keep him quiet? 8)

"Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C., last month, Breitbart claimed he had damning videos of Barack Obama, and planned to release them before the general election.

'[We] are going to vet [Obama] from his college days to show you why racial division and class warfare are central to what hope and change was sold in 2008,' Breitbart told the CPAC crowd."

Not really, it's just an abstraction. Society is also an abstraction.
