i had a discussion with my civil procedure prof today about the 3 types of prima facie. he was talking about it in class and mentioned there are two uses of the term, but neither of them seemed to match the way it was used when i encountered it. remember when i beat that speeding ticket because it's not illegal to speed in nh? that case was about the 3rd type, and we had a little discussion about it. i think that means i'm smart or something.
now being nearly 2 weeks into law school, i am still rocking my streak of getting free food and/or drink every day. today was a can of amp and a giant
pixie stick pixy stix (this is the spelling on the tag. i have one stix?)! which is not very substantial, as food goes, and not strictly speaking from the school as they were both corporate handouts to this nice demographic of rich students, but i am going to count it because this streak is awesome and free is awesome and food is awesome. and now i'm on a twitchy sugar high. pixy stix are seriously nothing but sugar and citric acid and food coloring. it's burning my throat a little :o
another thing i did today - again, nearly 2 weeks into law school - was get my books. ya see, neu (which is what the
hip kids official literature calls northeastern) has this student-run nonprofit do-gooder bookstore thing called CISP where i got supercheap used copies of my textbooks. except they only had the old editions of the books. i asked my profs if these were close enough and got resounding noes (including hackney telling me the old edition has "incorrect pagination" because he loves 10 dollar words). so i ordered used copies of the new books off amazon for way more than i got them at CISP but still way less than fullprice textbooks. and those just came today. so i've been using the old versions so far and yeah they are actually pretty different. oh well! all better now
i hate that i like a band with such a shitty bandname.

holy shit it's illegal to speed in nh?? i should have taken advantage of this fact more during my 4 years there. WHY DO THEY HAVE POSTED SPEED LIMIT SIGNS? LIVE FREE OR DIE.
LIVE DANGEROUSLY OR DIE. basically what the law says is it's illegal to drive unsafely, and if you are over the posted limit the burden of proof shifts to you to show you were not driving unsafely.
obviously i meant to say "not illegal". i'm an idjit.
ALSO! i didn't know the meaning of the word "pagination" until about junior year of college. some girl in a psych class asked me about the pagination of our papers and i was like wtf i have no idea what you're saying. she basically called me an idiot.
people who use words like pagination in casual conversation do not deserve answers to their questions
i agree. she rolled her eyes at me and was like HOW DO YOU NOT KNOW THIS WORD
