It's Latin, to excel, surpass, exceed or overtake. The point I was trying to make is I'm not trying to make myself superior to anyone.
Uh huh...sometimes it's easier to make a point by putting all the words in the same language.
Especially if the point you're trying to make is that you're not trying to make yourself superior to anyone.
I'm not saying it's not. That's why I keep posting on this thread.
Well first off I'm from Romania, left law school about 2 years ago. I don't think it's a regional thing, though, I've seen this in french universities too. Maybe it's european. Or, as I said before, it might be law schools, I imagine liberal arts college would be more of a jeans and t-shirt affair.
In the US there aren't separate colleges/universities for future lawyers. That starts in law school, after your bachelors degree. So I went to undergrad with plenty of future lawyers. Nobody even really wore a SC ever, that I can remember.
I'm familiar with the US law education system. Anyway, it seems to me that there is a big lack of respectful attire in american colleges. Here, at least, few students "dare" to wear shorts(even dressy ones) to class. Some american friends told me that some students go to class in PJ's in the US. It would be unheard of in, I think I'm not exaggerating if I say, the whole of Europe.
You definitely see people in PJs at morning classes.
"Harvey", a bespoke suit is a very fine thing, but wearing a business suit at all times is a very stupid and tacky thing to do. You should spend some time learning how real men dress when they're outside of the office. Here's a clue: they don't wear office-wear.
By the way, "to superare" is grammatical nonsense, since superare is already infinitive and thus it is tautological to prefix a "to" to it. If you're going to deploy Latin words in your writing, then you better get it right. To be honest, your erroneous use of Latin combined with your decision to dress entirely inappropriately (and unstylishly) make you come across as arrogant, ignorant, and pretentious -- a truly horrible personality. Hopefully it is just a function of your youth and immaturity, rather than your inherent personality.
The UK is in Europe, and people dress very much in the American style (i.e., PJs to class if they feel like it). Although some people dress smartly in tweeds, blazers, shirts, etc., particularly at Oxbridge.
You guys need to remember you're arguing with a 16 year old and/or a troll.
+1 to Loathing's comments. "Tacky" is the key word.
Well, I'm not arguing that UK is not in Europe geographically, but it is a different animal from the other european countries.
Separate names with a comma.
