Nerd-trumped. :)


Not really, because a Mujahid is just a practitioner of Jihad, regardless of location. :-) Your play, sir.


I am fairly certain that Rambo is a Kufar anyways, and so can't be a Mujahid. (Sidenote: voweling arabic is hard, can we just stick to SATTS)


I think you mean he's "kafir". Kuffar is plural. (Just in case waiting4law must point it out later :shock: )


I know, see correction. Also note that while Arabic was my job for 4 years, I have not used it in 3.

This thread is slowly overtaking Georgetown for the "thread that gives me a headache" contest.

That's why we're preempting the possibility of facing indefinite detention by studying the law. If I go to Gitmo, I wanna know my rights.

That's easy. If you go to Gitmo, you have no rights. Just saved you 3 years of tuition.

I'm really more concerned about what the eyes in Ithaca are seeing. Maybe this is all just a test to see how we can handle stress.

Yeah pretty much. EA Complete on 11/13, still waiting for DR. I haven't noticed if anyone who went complete around my date got one of the deferrals-- I'm just assuming that they didn't get my application in time for mine to go out w/everyone else's.

LSAT: mine >75th%
GPA: 75th> mine > 25%

ok fine so it's spelled MoniCa, but it is her : "Cox Arquette also dated singer Adam Duritz of Counting Crows and appeared in their music video for song "A Long December" in 1997" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Courteney_Cox
