    i gotta go shooting. never fired one.

    i am considering joining jag when i'm done with law school so that would require officer school, military legal training i think, and maybe some form of boot camp. all of which i would be down for. then deployment somewhere to (ideally) oversee drone strikes or some thing. that sounds both awesome and terrifying.

    Katie's considering it. Highly, highly competitive program. If you fail the bar there's a chance you go to war as an officer. lol

    I know a bunch of people who became JAGs. Only the Marines put JAG candidates through boot camp.

    DOPE. i mean, dangerous and all that, but pretty dope.

    And, clearly i'll pas the bar haha.

    They were at my school for OCI but i didnt apply bc with my grades and all i thought i would get a real job that pays big. And that obviously has not happened so. I figure two years of jag, then go to a defense firm or something.

    sound reasonable?

    i gotta start looking into things i 'm so fn lazy

    Yup. Big $$ jobs don't happen these days without (1) sheer luck, and (2) a license. It's terrible. If we did this ten years ago we'd be making gobs of money.

    word. i need to find something. a clerkship for the summer or something with small-mid size firm.

    definitely struck out with the big firms this fall, but they're not looking to lock up hofstra students anyhow.

    depressing shi&*( for sure. f this profession.

    In addition to the private product development I'm doing, I'd like to get back into either the retail environment (offered two separate positions at the local 'flagship' Best Buy and tentatively one at Verizon), or contractual work like I've done for T-Mo/Samsung in the past. It's tempting.. very tempting. I'm lucky to potentially have the option.

    In other news, Elysian Night Owl (pumpkin ale) made in Seattle, homemade apple crisp and vanilla ice cream, and a football game to watch. Not such a bad friday night so far. How we all doing?

    I should really be in bed right now.

    Never fired a gun before in my life, always been interested though. I may look into local ranges, see what the cost is like for some training and such, just so I can see what it feels like. Doubt I'd ever buy one though. I don't trust myself enough.

    I'm somewhat with you on that. I've thought about it before though, so the future will tell.

    I was raised and taught to shoot by my dad.I actually wouldnt know what its like not to know about guns or to never have shot one before.As far as pistols go though I didnt get into them til I was older and had friends that had them.Now I have my own collections of rifles, shotguns and pistols,
    In North Carolina if you buy a used pistol from a friend its not required to have it registered thats just when you buy the pistol from a store or from someone that is a stranger and wants the gun cleared out of their name.I am not talking about "Hot Pistols".

    Lol. I was testing your reaction. Bustin balls if you will. Most lawyers (that I know, anyway) get all bent out of shape when people complain about that case. I am fully aware that it wasn't frivolous, but wanted to see if it would get you fired up. Apparently not...

    Downloaded the updated Chrome for Android and it's much improved over earlier versions. It renders pages more quickly and it fixed an issue I noticed on the AC forum pages where certain text within posts was displayed in a really small font size.

    Same with Indiana. It is actually the seller's responsibility to ensure the buyer is not a convicted felon (in which case it is illegal for them to purchase a firearm).

    Of course, most of those who think the case was egregious would gladly hire Jackie Chiles or Saul Goodman if it had happened to them.
