Website of the Week: “Bros Icing Bros”

Posted in Random on May 26, 2010 by George

This website presents a fun game to play with your fellow law students over the summer when you are not studying or reading briefs. Bros Icing Bros presents some simple rules for the game of “Icing” someone. The gist is basically this: If presented with one of the grossest malt liquor drinks to ever grace the planet – Smirnoff Ice – you must get on one knee, and drink it.

SIMPLE RULES

  1. You cannot refuse an ice. If you refuse to drink the ice you are instantly excommunicated and shunned and thus cannot ever ice another person or be iced.
  2. If you are iced by another person, you can “Ice Block.” When presented with an Ice, you pull out an ice of your own and reverse the ice to the other  person. They drink both. The ultimate ice insult.

Game On.

Bar Exam Preparation

It’s about that time of the year where newly minted law school graduates disappear for 3 months in preparation for the California Bar Exam. Good luck and don’t forget to prepare for your bar exam after the bar exam!

Pocahonatar

After watching this mashup it seems pretty obvious “Avatar” was a beat for beat rip off of “Pocahantas” (“Pocahantas in Space,” if you will).  It’s really quite remarkable how similar these films are. This video reeks of amazing copyright infringement, enjoy!

Posted in Law, News, Random on May 19, 2010 by George

For those parents-to-be who want to ensure that their children’s lives are saddled with crushing debt and filled with 90-hour work weeks reviewing irrelevant emails in a windowless room on the 22nd floor of a New York office building,  Avvo, has unveiled a new study on lawyer’s names over the past 200 years.

There are eight names that  appear in the top 20 list for every time period he studied: each decade since the 1950s, 1901-1950, and the Olde Tyme list of attorney names from the 19th century:

1. JOHN
2. ROBERT
3. JAMES
4. DAVID
5. WILLIAM
6. RICHARD
7. THOMAS
8. JOSEPH

Kinda Disappointing GEORGE didn’t make the cut.

An Open (face)Book

Posted in Law, News, Technology on May 19, 2010 by George

Well, if your Facebook profile is public, that means you’re bound to be on Openbook, a search site that scans FB status updates for key words and displays the results. It’s angled to find updates that shouldn’t be so public, like “I cheated,” “I’m drunk,” and “don’t tell anyone.” You can even “like” Openbook. Are you checking your profile settings yet?
