A) I never said I'd kick your ass
B) I live in NJ. I go to school in NY, so I'm typically there most days, but not in the holidays. You can ask any of the regulars here, or just dig through my post history, and you'll see I'm pretty consistent about that. why on earth would I pay $15 to go into the city to meet up with you? As I said before, if it doesn't inconvenience me, no problem, but you can't expect me to go out of my way, can you?

Just to get back to this, I'm happy to meet you any time that doesn't inconvenience me anywhere that doesn't require me to travel very far, if you really feel the need to come to the lady's defense (assuming she is a lady)


Again, easy to talk like that on a fucking message board. What do u mean by asshole anyway, buddy? What, do u not recycle? Ur a fucking loser that posts 50 times a day on a law school message board


Tip: You'll go further in life if you say "you're" instead of "ur"; the latter makes you look like an idiot.

And yea i forgot to mention save that google and dictionary for your Rc,u are cocky too,that won`t get you anywhere in life .lol

A) I understand the difference between Majority and Great Majority, but apparently you don't. I suggest you look the words up in a dictionary.
B) the reason I said something negative about Dave Hall is because he got caught falsifying his LSAT record and lying about his scores. I don't know if he's smarter than me, but he certainly has less integrity, so I have absolutely no intention of ever signing up to learn anything from him.

stupid I may be, but I'm not above checking to verify whether or not I'm right (I am). I also have no intention of going into litigation, so you don't need to worry about that part. Oh, and I already attend a law school.

he didn`t get caught up falsifying,the Lsac didn`t release his score for a while and he guessed on that,but he has 5 scores which are higher than 175,so don`t talk if u don`t know what`s going on there.
Second i am not gonna deal with dumb intellect,u don`t deserve the privilege of my time.

"Great majority" doesn't have a strict definition, but it might help to remember that "great" is referring to the relative size of the group within the whole, not the actual number itself.

There are 143 million women in the U.S., which is a great number, but it's only a very slight majority (50.9%) compared to the number of men. Likewise, the "great majority" (~98%) of U.S. Presidents have been white males, even though there have only been 43 of them.

He may be smart, but he's not very bright considering he falsified his score when he didn't have to.
I scored well enough (without any prep classes) that I'm ok with my score, and I'm not easily impressed just because someone has an aptitude for standardized tests.
I also sleep perfectly fine, most nights, but I appreciate your concern

1)Great majority of Americans like Obama.(40 percent)
2)Slight majority hates him 30 percent
3)30 percent is neutral doesn`t feel anything about him
So in this scenario great majority doesn`t have to be most of the people which includes 50 plus 1.
That`s where u are wrong.

Case 1) from your example isn't a majority, it's a plurality.
Case 2) isn't any kind of a majority at all.

When you're talking about a population 'X':

"None of X" means zero percent.
"Some of X" means a percentage greater than zero (could be as high as 100%, although it's not commonly used that way)
"Majority of X" or "Most of X" means some percentage greater than 50%.

"Great majority", "vast majority", or "overwhelming majority" don't have strict definitions, other than the fact that they are majorities (greater than 50%). Personally, I wouldn't use "great majority" unless the majority was more than 80% of the population, and I would save "vast" and "overwhelming" for cases where the majority is greater than 95% of the population.

I understand what u mean,but when we say a great majority of girls we don``t know a great majority of what number which makes me conclude that it could be most of them but doesn`t have to be most of them.

Your conclusion is wrong. Rather than listen to pretty much everyone on this website who has told you this, you just buckle down and stick with your opinion, even though it's factually incorrect. The very definition of majority means most. It is linguistically impossible to have a majority and it not be most
