    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I get where you're coming from. The reality of law school is that if you're going to make it worthwhile, you need to think about how hard you worked in law school, multiply that by two, and that's how hard you're going to work for the next decade of your life. If you're comfortable with that, then six-figure debt for a law degree is a bargain. If you're not comfortable with that, do something else, or get the military to pay for it.


    Hey man, put in your 30 years and take advantage of that sweet state employees retirement plan. Unless you live in Illinois, then you're probably screwed.


    As long as you always look at your future in six month increments, this is probably true.


    Look, I'm not saying this statement applies to you, but you're also certainly not the first person to have made such statements on this forum. I do feel, however, that statements like this, in general, are attributable to people who are either too young to be able to appreciate the trappings of being family man, or those simply too consumed with themselves.

    If you're 24 and you love staying out 'til 2 a.m., getting pissed, and making the world bend to your wishes, then that's great. You're 24 and you should feel that way.

    Give yourself another decade and shit changes. For many people, they begin to see value in submitting themselves to institutions which are bigger than themselves (marriage, parenthood, etc.). Will all people feel this way, certainly not. Is it wrong to be consumed with yourself beyond your mid 20's, no. But at some point you're going to want something that's substantial, something that isn't temporary, and that doesn't come for free. It means a lifetime of compromise and dreams that you give up. But what you give up, can be more than made up by what you receive in return.




    This isn't really a problem for people who live in like 95% of the country, or who made a reasonable down payment when originating their mortgage. As a renter you do preserve optionality, but it does come at an expense. The cost of that added expense could be turned into the additional consumption of booze, food, and clothes.


    You're not that old. Work your ass off for the next ten year and reap the benefits.

    FTFY. The way rent is in the Bay Area, might as well be mortgage payments anyway. Looking for a house under $1 million that's not in the projects. Anyone?

    Also, some dude in China jumped 7 stories inside a mall and killed himself after his girlfriend wouldn't stop shopping for shoes after 5 hours.

    I was mostly speaking in jest, @Biggskip. :) Houses, marriage and family are cool for those that are down with it. I don't think, though, that not wanting those things is necessarily an indication of short thinking and self-absorption. Some people are just a little bit more transient and individualistic.

    Thanks for the tip, although I'm not entirely sure I can trust anything coming from a member of the Trystero. :paranoia:

    Which did you get? I got a 40 and wish I might have gotten the 38 instead but I'm kinda feeling the boxy sleeves but body needs to be taken in a little.

    IIRC Los Altos is pretty pricey, even not in the hills. But the other places are probably doable.

    Also, @willy cheesesteak's site is great.

    PS @Synthese, when it was raining like crazy last week all I could think of was bikerwizards and pee. Damn you.

    I got both and the 38 fits me better by a long shot although I am still on the fence overall. I am 180ish, so I am probably wearing the "wrong" size.

    I like wearing the shawl collar up. It is huge, goes up to my ears. Fit pics soon.

    I'm around 170 atm so yeah maybe the 38 would fit me better or more fitted. I like the big sleeves though now, it looked better with a loose tee.

    Anyone (thewho?) have much experience with Etudes? Really like some of their pattern shirts, thinking about picking one up. Wasn't sure what the fit/quality was like.

    reedo, unless you REALLY want to be a lawyer and don't mind dedicating your life to it for the next 15 years to the exclusion of other things you may want to do I'd take Teger's advise. I have a lot of lawyers in my family, one of my Cousins made law review and lived in the financial district in Boston and one of my Uncles is very wealthy and retired early... but they definitely paid for it. Any good law firm will work the crap out of you after you are done with school for many years.

    If you are the type that would do well running a business and have something you are interested in I'd go that route instead, for sure.

    Personally, I waffled and had a biz, got tired of it, went back to school and got my engineering degree, now I'm back in business for myself. Working for other people can be ok, but it's almost entirely dependent on getting a good boss, and there is no job security or loyalty anymore, people get fired if it's convienient for the employer.
