Cheers! Thanks, haha no harm was intended buddy
It was just a joke and a compliment at the same time. There is no need to act so self-righteous. I always wonder what people like you would be like in real life.
Anyway I appreciated it anyway but really learn to take a joke.
Have a wonderful life.
Computer Science god of knowledge? Assist if you can
What is more Pretigious UCL or Kings? Which would place me in a better position for USA Post grad?
I think you are on the right lines. There isn't a lot of scope for being "creative" as a trainee. I think you should really emphasise the quality and attention to detail aspect - you need to make sure that your work gets all the details correct first time so that more senior lawyers have the information they need to give the correct advice to the client.
Do you happen to still have the link the Joan Beal paper; “You’re Not from New York City, You’re from Rotherham”: Dialect and Identity in British Indie Music? I would be eternally grateful if you could help a desperate English student out!
I read your About Me section; all of it
Hello, I'm new here and I noticed in one of your posts that you have a copy of Joan C Beal: “You’re Not from New York City, You’re from Rotherham”: Dialect and Identity in British Indie Music Journal of English Linguistics September 2009... would you mind sending it to me? It would be much appreciated
In response to your condescending post on the weed legalisation thread..
Firstly, where in my post did i state that the sun's opinion was that of my own?
Secondly, I didn't say that studies on cannabis were conclusive in any way,shape or form.
Thirdly, you don't really have grounds to ask me that considering i, once again, did not make a reference to statistics regarding the correlation between people who smoke as many joints per day as do smokers cigarettes.
It baffles me that anyone would think a language, let alone a culture would continue to stay in a state of stasis. lol
Weakness of instinct is man's natural advantage, that which makes him a rational being.
Man has always pondered the problem of reconciling law and justice. Consider a map: the coastline is defined, but in reality, is amorphous, changing in proportion to the rising and falling of the tides, the erosion of the cliffs, the occasional catastrophe of a rock fall. We must think of the coastline defined on the map as law, and the reality of the coastline as justice.
I was a Muslim.
I quit when I realized why I am a Muslim and that was because my parents were. Had I been kin to other parents with different faiths e.g. Christianity, I would most likely end up being a Christian (or atheist), thus I would be burning in Hell for eternity according to Islam.
I've never actually met a convert to Islam face to face, you are either born into a faith or secretly atheist (to avoid giving shame to your family).
A supreme God would notice this flaw and realize that certain individuals have an obscenely high probability of going to Hell, of which they cannot change. Just look at the Royal family, I can guarantee you that ALL of Prince Harry's future children will be burning in Hell according to Islam, they haven't even come into existence yet, yet I can make this claim.
All of this signifies a man made religion.
Science adjusts its beliefs based on what's observed. Faith is the denial of observation so that belief can be preserved.

I just had some chick come up to me and ask, 'Why do guys make more money an hour to do the exact same job?'
'Why? I'll tell you why', I said. 'Because in the unlikely event that we're both on the Titanic and it starts to sink, for some screwed up reason, you get to leave with kids and i have to stay.'
We are the Universe experiencing itself.
He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby becomes a monster. And when you gaze long into an abyss the abyss also gazes into you. - Nietzsche
There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so - Hamlet, Act II, Scene II
A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die. - Max Planck
Comparing yourself to others is a recipe for a life of misery for most, and vanity for the fortunate few. Compare yourself to yourself yesterday.
Why is it called rush hour when everyone goes so slowly?
