ETA: I liked your explanation of the Lobster Necessary Assumption question. That is welcomed in this forum even if it isn't in the other.


I'll keep that in mind, looking for similar wording in parallel questions. It may be a way to expedite the process since those are the most tedious ones. I'll do some experimenting on older PTs. I was having a little fun with that explanation but the OP wasn't having any of it.

Breaking news - I found an error on the LSAT. It's a small one, but in PT 53, Section 4, Passage 1, line 19, the passage says "...somewhat different than that of...". The correct idiom is different from.

Different from, LSAT.

Suck on that.

Speaking of off topic.

I was on my way back from studying last night and refused to give a homeless guy a ride. Does this preclude me from a PI career?

Hehe, it's a pic of this band I've loved for a long time, Ladytron. If law school doesn't work out, it's back to applying to be their 5th member. My tar was briefly Nixon, but it creeped me out.

What are you changing your tar to??

That's basically how 30% of horror/slasher (and porn?) movies start, so I would give you a pass on this occasion.

Right? Never worn a pair of TOMS in my life (I am fat and there are certain things fat people don't wear), but he is precisely the individual I picture when I imagine the founder of TOMS. #Stereotype?

ETA: Maybe it was the stereotype of a Middle School Librarian. Having went to Middle School in a super granola area this is about what my MS librarian looked like. That's probably what did it.

Also Bill has 999 posts.
