Spoiler alert: evidently, Freewheeler turned out to be yet another "Hey Man" sock. Explains the irrationally aggro posting style and the insubstantial argumentation.
Thank you, mods, for killing Hey Man v4.0 (or whatever version we're up to these days), aka, Freewheeler. May he learn to give it at least a two-month rest this time before coming back to spam us again.

I never did med mal, but we used to get sign ups for it all the time and I would interview the potential client and forward pertinent information to an attorney we worked with who was one of Texas's top med mal attorneys. I would get cases that I thought were slam dunks that he would reject. The best...

Quote: Originally Posted by Ataturk In most cases you have a right to a jury trial, but that doesn't mean you have to use it.

Once again I am going to bring up Dragon Age 2. I gave it another shot last night for about an hour, thinking "Oh, what the hell, maybe I was too harsh in my evaluation last time." Turns out I had been, if anything, too lenient. Holy hell, this game sucks cock. Such an epic letdown of a sequel.
