OP: All we are saying is give peace a chance
Whirlpool: Don't let this district you from the fact that in the movie Barnyard Ben gave his life to single handedly defend the chicken coop from six cayotes
Messier 83: Many, many years ago when I was 23 I was married to a widow who was pretty as can be This widow had a grown-up daughter who had hair of red My father fell in love with her and soon they too were wed This made my dad my son-in-law and really changed my life For now my daughter was my mother 'cause she was my father's wife And to complicate the matter even though it brought me joy I soon became the father of a bouncing baby boy My little baby then became a brother-in-law to dad And so he became my uncle though it mad me very sad For if he were my uncle that would also made him brother Of the widows grown-up daughter who was of course my stepmother Father's wife then had a son who kept them on the run And he became my grandchild for he was my daughter's son My wife is now my mother's mother and it makes me blue Because although she is my wife she's my grandmother two Now if my wife is my grandmother then I'm her grandchild And every time I think of it, nearly drives me wild 'Cause now I have become the strangest case you ever saw As husband of my grandmother I am my own grandpaw Oh I'm my own grandpaw I'm my own grandpaw It sounds funny I know but it really is so I'm my own grandpaw (Listen to this now) I'm my own grandpaw I'm my own grandpaw I'm my own grandpaw
Cintra: Anyone else still disturbed and paranoid by the random disappearances of members of this class at various points? It's like 1984 man....what if I'm next...WAIT OH NO....NO!!! SSSSTTTTOOOO---
Jedha: Cintra is fine...they have been sent to somewhere for their own good, do not panic and continue to follow big brother, we're watching you....
OP: It's true: they are all in a comfortable place, where there is no worry. "Disappearance" is an ugly name, they are just enjoying life silently.
Naboo: Time for a revolution to save them!!
Lower Posada: There is no war within the walls
Mustafar: So Lisa Burns just trolled this class...releasing grades a half before a class that's had hours of discussion about grades....
Mustafar: half hour*
Mustafar: If anyone disappears today is it because they failed out?
Mars: I hope that our few remaining friends Give up on trying to save us. I hope we come out with a fail-safe plot To piss off the dumb few that forgave us. I hope the fences we mended Fall down beneath their own weight. And I hope we hang on past the last exit, I hope it's already too late. And I hope the junkyard a few blocks from here Someday burns down. And I hope the rising black smoke carries me far away, And I never come back to this town again. In my life, I hope I lie, And tell everyone you were a good wife. And I hope you die, I hope we both die. I hope I cut myself shaving tomorrow; I hope it bleeds all day long. Our friends say it's darkest before the sun rises; We're pretty sure they're all wrong. I hope it stays dark forever, I hope the worst isn't over. And I hope you blink before I do, And I hope I never get sober. And I hope when you think of me years down the line, You can't find one good thing to say. And I'd hope that if I found the strength to walk out, You'd stay the hell out of my way. I am drowning. There is no sign of land. You are coming down with me, Hand in unlovable hand. And I hope you die, I hope we both die.
Sirius A: Love the Mountain Goats, saw them in the spring
Altair: Was there a secret vote to begin calling him Donald John?
Altair: Hearing Adam Schiff lecture about impartiality gives me the same feeling as hearing Donald Trump lecture about the harms of sexual assault
Proxima Centauri: Wait, he's Don John? Like Don Juan? Wow, that explains so much!
Mars: Awesome Sirius A!!
Mars: Ah the internet screwed it up
Mars: There it goes
Mars: ah no an extra e got in :(
Proxima Centauri: Grades!
Proxima Centauri: I'm the Sovereign of Lopez
Proxima Centauri: Only Lopez
Tollana: Excited to see sweeeeepppaaaaa tomorrow!
Vorash: Paul Weiss = Trump
Sunflower: Just to make sure, the paper is due on the 24th right?
Neptune: Will there be mimosas at this brunch, asking for a friend?
Tollana: Oh the paper.....
Jupiter: So sad this class is ending :( going to miss these discussions
Chulak: can we get one last clarification on what the paper is actually supposed to be about
Jupiter: What will you be teaching in the fall?
Neptune: I am the friend
Felucia: how should we submit our papers? email?
Earth: Is it the 24th at 11:59
Celestis: at what time on Friday is the paper due
Earth: @ProfNesson
Altair: Gonna miss this class so much!!!!
Tollana: really love the small groups discussion and this is a great class
Puck: Loved it here!
Tollana: Will sweeppaaa get a H?
Ross 248: Great discussion of the Exxon Mobile protest. As to efficacy, I think it's very hard to predict where any given protest will lead. Good for those students to stand up for what they believe in, and to puncture the typical environment of these sponsored meet and greets.
Titan: I really respect the honesty and thought people put into these conversations. This discussion about how we square our principles with our professional roles is so important and for a lot of us, hard. The reality is that there is disagreement about this stuff and understanding where other people come from is important.
Barnards Star: I really appreciated the commentary after watching a part of the impeachment trial. To me, it was a great space to reflect on what is happening and also to get a feel for what others are thinking. The climate change protests session was also fascinating. Our group meandered to talk about different topics and ultimately came up with more questions than answers, but I appreciated being able to discuss some of these issues in a classroom space.
Tollana: My feelings are that we all get it how to talk within a group and share our thoughts honestly. This is a progress and we all get improved
Crinfrid: so paper is nothing doctrinal?
Sirius A: no citations allowed
Callisto: @Messier 83: hahahahahahaha! You're indeed your own grandpaw!!! RollTide!!!
Callisto: Great discussion in class today. Truly appreciated all the honest perspectives and exploring the dilemma between self interest and public morality
Langara: thank you all!
Altair: I thought the protestors had a lot of courage, but I don't personally believe there is something wrong with any lawyer or firm providing legal representation for any defendant. I do agree though that we should think more about the role that we will play in all this if we join a large law firm.
Celestis: i just want everyone to be real about why they're doing their firm jobs i.e. (most likely) we've picked the individual over the collective. live with that choice. struggle with the tension. we make moral choices when we say we will place our (supposed) morals aside for the good of our employment. is that the right way to conceptualize legal work? i'm not sure, but i desperately want to see a world where we do hold ~some~ moral conviction/guiding principle and let that influence our work.
Hyperion: I thought the discussion today was especially compelling. Everyone is affected by the existence of law firms, so it felt as if we were all engaged. I also am encouraged by the continued high level of respect that we have exhibited recently.
Altair: Will there be bagels tomorrow?
Tyffi: Bagels again? How about some donuts?
Mustafar: let's do a reunion when this class is over!!
Abydos: Help, I have done it again I have been here many times before Hurt myself again today And the worst part is there's no one else to blame Be my friend Hold me, wrap me up Unfold me I am small and needy Warm me up And breathe me Ouch, I have lost myself again Lost myself and I am nowhere to be found, Yeah, I think that I might break Lost myself again and I feel unsafe Be my friend Hold me, wrap me up Unfold me I am small and needy Warm me up And breathe me Be my friend Hold me, wrap me up Unfold me I am small and needy Warm me up And breathe me
