  1. I thought companies could not be pro se in small claims court in Texas but now I think that changed ...
  2. Yes (95L), and then maybe Fish also was a W&L Law grad?
  3. I have not posted here in almost a decade (I gave up fantasy football but wandered back through here when I was flogging the internet). I find myself strangely compelled to join this thread ... must be all the law talkin' stuff. Love that we lawyers have our own thread. Hope everyone is doing well! ETA: 7 years. Lawyers love to overreach.
  4. If Obama loses there might be rioting, but it would surprise me if it happened in Chicago. LA and Detroit would be my guesses.I thought the left was the side of peace, understanding and tolerance?That's a myth.So you're all going to take shots at the left based on hypothetical events you made up?I'm talking about events which have already happened, mate. For instance, which side is known for shouting down speakers that they don't agree with?You lie!!!!
  5. My son is 11 and is just getting diagnosed. A psychologist ran a slew of test on him and determined that ADD is a small component of it. He did say ADD is over-diagnosed and over-medicated, but in my son's case, he has a pure ADD case and medicaiton will help him. We will be starting his medicaiton soon, so we will see.My son is very smart, but cannot focus in school and basically finds school boring. He frequently forgets his assignments, forgets when he has tests, and it frequently doesn't even registered that he messed up. So despite being very smart, he is getting B's and C's and is now staring to get D's. He was definately trending the wrong way.He is never disruptive is school. He just withdraws. He loves to read, so when he checks out, he is frequently reading. Most of his teachers thought this was good, so they allowed it. Perhaps if he were more disruptive, he would have been diagnosed earier.This. Again, ADD is a world away from ADHD and from what I have read they are really totally different conditions.
  6. Does he have an IEP?No. He is functioning well with the medicine. He is bright, but his Bs and As were turning into Cs because he could never find his homework or turn it in. The medicine seems to help him focus and there is less daydreaming and more focus and organization.ETA: I took Cylert when I was his age. It also helped me. I also took it briefly in high school when I was taking the SATs and it boosted my score almost 100 points on the 1600 point scale.
  7. My child has diagnosed ADD but like a previous poster it is without hyperactivity. It just seems like he is off in his own world all the time and it really makes it hard for him in school. I was exactly the same way. No disruptive bhavior, just no focus, no concentration, no ability to get your act together. Never remember your work, your books, nothing. Watching TV is like being on another planet. The medicine in our case was to control the daydreaming/tuning out and allow us to focus on school. It worked wonders for me and seems to be doing wonders for my son. Our situation with ADD is a world away from what so many others are posting dealing with ADHD. Each of you have all my prayers for the best future possible.
  8. Almost peed myself watching this the other night. Hilarious.Just got done watching this. I loved the end part talking about the old guys. Hilarious!!!I would not have watched this without the good word giving here and so glad I did. That old guy part at the end had me seriously in pain laughing with tears rolling down my eyes and still was making me laugh at work the next day thinking about it.
  9. I really like the documentary "The One Percent", focusing on wealth disparity in the US.
  10. Just got done watching a Park Chan-wook movie I hadn't heard of Thirst. Pretty good Vampire flick. 10 times better than that Twilight crap. Added to instant. Looks like they have all 3 vengeance trilogy movies on instant now. Chan-wook is breaking out.
  11. Just noticed "Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance" is now instant. Great movie. Love the whole trilogy.
  12. Just watched this movie based on your recommendation. Yeah, it was dusty in the room.
  13. Gonna go grab some frozen peas now ... Jockstrap advice was right on.
  14. Posner?Day late, dollar short ... my bad, should read whole thread.
