Do we have any insight into the number of times that the experimental has been a reading comp section?

I am just counting on this happening, and will be pleasantly surprised if it doesn't.

Two what? Two copies of Point Break in a format of your choosing? Two pairs of TOM's, one going to a poor kid? Two letters of recommendation, signed and sealed? Two hands? I hope you already have the latter.

Note that not everyone will get the same experimental. Like, not even everyone in the same room. Last time I had LG as exp. and they were the worst.

Also I hope it's LR, I can do that shit all day every day

Yeah I want one of the LG experimental sections that people have talked about where they say it's super obvious that it's the experimental section.

I was drunk when I signed up for TLS and I was listening to this song called "He Took Her to a Movie," so...
Everything sounds so stupid when you explain it, which is the complete opposite of how things sound when you're drunk.

I have been refraining from the booze for the past few weeks. I am already fantasizing about the night of the 27th. To paraphrase the Colonel, I plan to drink until my face melts off. He said it with more zest, though.

I'm highly uncomfortable that answer choice (E) requires the assumption that employees of the Manager's firm will behave similarly to the employees of the other firm mentioned.

I chose (B), and I understand it's wrong because it's a premise that supports the Manager's conclusion, but what the question wants is another conclusion.


Quoting myself in case it gets buried and cause this is rather important to me.

idk P i mean its kind of a weird MSS in that almost seems like an assumption to me but this is def a good candidate for POE its weird i think cuz youre trying to support an opinion in this Q whereas i think most MSS Qs are not opinion based like its just a couple of sentences objectively describing a situation then you see whats MSS

Sfog, you just committed an RC error on a post about RC. That was so meta of you.


Ahahahahahaha. Can't believe I just did that. I have LG on the brain! Hoping to finish my miscellaneous packet today.

Yeah, this is a weird one.

He's just arguing that since other companies stick to the old software, then our company should stick to the old software. The NA is that our company = other companies.

It's an MSS and you have to assume that the Manager's reasoning is valid. E is the NA in his argument, so since the reasoning is valid, E is MSS. B is not necessary to or supported by his reasoning.
