What's the flaw in the tard gunner's argument ?

I'm just going to leave it up to you to figure that out BJS. But let's not act like I'm either not studying or am on TLS.


Here's my view on the grammar/diction/spelling on Internet forums: if you're typing on a traditional keyboard, you should obey the general requirements of English. Certainly, there will be mispellings and grammar mistakes. Certainly, there are idioms and acronyms appropriate on an Internet forum that aren't anywhere else. But a forum is nothing like a texting conversation, where the keyboard is limited and the medium is most conducive to rapid exchanges. Typing "n" instead of "and" is questionable at best in a text message, and ludicruous on a forum.

The way we present ourselves is largely how others perceive us. As smcc alluded to earlier, mispellings and grammar mistakes portray you in a certain light regardless the content of your posts.

In any case: the "tard gunner" had a valid point. We have a limited amount of time remaining to the test, so that time should be spent as economically as possible. If we suppose there's a 2% chance of X appearing on the test, we shouldn't spend 20% of our time studying for it.


+1. Anyway Jerry IMHO I think getting a rogue miscellaneous game next Saturday is likely enough to warrant studying or brushing up on other random games. I'm going through a few of the Cambridge miscellaneous games this week and next week to help prepare. Who knows if it will help, but it gives me some peace of mind.

Great point. Odds favor it not happening but a couple hours of prep may prevent a colossal meltdown on test day if they throw a knuckleball. Calm, cool, and collected. WWJoeFlaccoD?

Is this a srs q


I guess I should have realized that actual lsat questions on this thread are forbidden. I do have things to do and can't comb 339 pages of largely useless discussion. Forgive me


A simple search would have done it, actually. Happy birthday.

I'm going to love when Bill is like, "Yo, 178ed that shit" when we receive our scores. I hope he takes a picture of himself holding a sign with the score, his tDCS strapped to his head.

Should start devoting your time instead to the best way to get away with having my name on your test ;p
I'll take yours for you, I'm sure they'll be the same score... but I like this set up as a just-in-case measure

game 2 PT B there's a rule that states "if Y is out, then either L or O, but not both, are in" so its diagrammed like ~Y-->(L<-->~O) but the contrapositive gets kinda weird bc the contra of that is either that both L and O are in, or that both L and O are out

Is that the tree game?

I did not enjoy that game.
