Watch out for that carbonation, it may cause unintended inferences in in/out games.


If i'm in a social situation where it would be embarrassing to not drink alcohol, should i get an o doul's on draft? Or should I say i'm using some other sort of drug so people won't think i'm weird for not doing drugs?


Duh u say u r on a drug. If you suckle that p'douls and taste beer sans inebriation you'll be rushin to the 5 and dime for a gin n tonic quicker than Hussein bolt.

Caffeine pills will have the same effect though, won't they?


Essentially as caffeine has a diuretic effect. But it won't add any unnecessary liquid on top of that. So maybe there is a slight benefit

How do ya'll approach could be true / could be false questions? In theory I want to be using process of elimination for these. But there are times when I am going through the answers and I see one and say "oh yeah that could be true / is not necessarily true". When I get to these answers I feel torn, should I just circle it and move on, or continue checking through the answers?


Hey Mittens! I noticed that we neglected to address your post from yesterday. Sometimes that can happen when you're the last post on a given page.

To answer your question about approaching CBT/F questions, I would agree with focusing on the process of elimination. To do this effectively, I focus on looking for answers that are necessarily false/true. For instance, if the question asks you to select which answer could be true, instead of trying to identify answers that could be true, try identifying the those that MUST be false (hint: there will be four of them) and eliminating those choices. This leaves you with the correct answer since an answer choice that couldn't be true ipso facto must be false. The reverse is true for questions that ask which answer could be false, start by eliminating the four answers that must be true. (Credit to the LSAT Trainer for the concept)

Although this may seem like it takes longer than identify the "could be [t/f]" first, the elimination process actually takes less time.

It's a medicine prescribed to those with ADHD. Sorta raises their attention spans and helps them focus. If you don't have ADHD, the results are phenomenal.

One of my best friends is also studying for the LSAT and every time I see her she offers me adderall. She gets it from a really sketchy doctor who barely tested her before giving her the Rx. She says it really helps her even though she's pretty sure she doesn't have ADHD, which I thought was not supposed to be the case.

idk not for me. if i take caffeine pills, i don't pee a shit ton. if i drink coffee, i pee a shit ton. so maybe there is something else in coffee that makes me pee alot.

I was typing out a huge question on a new thread that I was about to create about a strengthen question that I was pretty sure had an answer choice that strengthened that was incorrect and a credited response that did not strengthen.

But then I reread the conclusion and realized that I missed two very important but subtle words in the conclusion and then it all made sense.

Bright side: I totally understand the logic behind the question now :)

But how the hell can I just skip over those two words in my initial read? :evil:

Water + Caffeine's Diurnial Effect

Or should I steal a joke from the Suits finale about you having an issue with your prostate?

holy shit we got a genius in the house everyone dude just made a novel discovery that if you drink water and add in some sort of diuretic (eg caffeine) you pee more than you would otherwise. would love to hear the suits finale joke as well a la me having prostate issues.
