To Call This Bad Judgment....

Please, tell me this is a joke....
A couple weeks ago, when I was biking to the store, I saw this one guy with a bike exactly like my boyfriend’s that got stole some time ago. So I rode ahead and stopped in front of him. He end up stop and when I tried to talk with him, he just acted dumb and never say a word. After a while, I gave up and head home to tell my boyfriend about this. Since this guy look easily intimidated and my boyfriend hate polices.
It kinda goes downhill from there. What, with the guy on the bicycle being a hearing-impaired, award winning kickboxer....


  1. I think the legal term isn't "joke" it is "Evolution In Action" a term that we haven't heard since law school . . . thank you Solomon.


  2. The only cool legal term I learned in law school was the "son of a bitch defense", wherein the person should be found NG because the son of a bitch had it coming.
    In this case, the "boyfriend" is definitely the SOB in question....
    I did play Gunner Bingo though.

  3. Teacher Patti
    1. Mega points for playing Gunner Bingo, especially if you actually asked a question with "bingo" in it to win (which I only had the guts to do once). And for having the guts to pitch the law and do something you enjoy.

    2. The funniest thing about the story is that it sounds like a bad joke, but probably really happened . . . you can just picture the moment that the victim who looked "easy to intimidate" got up off the ground and went after them . . .

    Aaron - as long as we are discussing law school terms, do you think anyone else learned about replevin for a cow? ". . . you thought that they were going to EAT Rose of Avalon?" I don't remember much/any real substantive law from the UofM, but we did get some funny stories in return for all of the money we would make for the next several year . . . : )


  4. It's funny how law school works, isn't it? I think particularly a top law school. People who never practiced or couldn't cut practice, whose dreams revolve around briefing and arguing Supreme Court cases, are 'teaching us to think like lawyers'. But obviously some of Contracts stuck with you - not surprising, first because the "first year" is the first (and, depending on your electives, possibly your last) exposure to substantive law (assuming the professor is willing to go there), and second because... well, Prof. White makes an impression, doesn't he.

    Is there another professor in the country who will introduce the concept of fungibility to law school students at the outset of their very first law school class, by making it personal? And he's right - lawyers are largely a fungible commodity, even if they protest otherwise, and there isn't an associate in the world who can't be replaced.
