As I transition from undergraduate college to either work, graduate school, or law school, I thought I'd put up this thread to network with those bronies who find their calling in the profession of law, or at least are keenly interested in the legal aspects of life and their social implications. A cursory survey of this site seems to reveal that this is not something that usually inspires passion in bronies. So far, I am the only one I know who has expressed "law" or "jurisprudence" as an interest on this site, and I've met only two bronies elsewhere so far who have expressed such an interest-- one of them the author of the Tumblr "Lawyer Warrior" who has not updated in over two years. There's fairly good reason to believe that law students (prospective and current) and lawyers are at least underrepresented here. Not only do the demands of the training and profession seem to preclude trifles such as posting on a site devoted to a little kid's show (however sophisticated it may be), but the brony and lawyer personalities seem divergent: While both bronies and lawyers are considerably more likely to have the INTJ personality type than the general population, bronies tend to be less neurotic and more agreeable than the general population while for lawyers it is the opposite (this link focuses on "skepticism" rather than "agreeableness", but I find the substitution at least party valid; another study seems to indicate that traits associated with agreeableness are also less common in lawyers). As for me, my interest in law is mostly in intellectual property, although I'm also fairly attracted to constitutional law and planning law. I won't repeat the personal statement I've already sent to several law schools, but I once wrote a paper on the now-discontinued "moral utility doctrine" of patent law where I explored the possible need and necessary reforms for revival. So if you're a lawyer, law school student (prospective or current), or merely interested in the field of law, feel free to share your ambitions, trials (both literal and figurative), and difficulties here. (If you want to discuss specific legal concepts that's probably best left to the Debate Pit.)
Part 2 (LAWYER APOCALYPSE) Some on this site may have noticed that DashForever has become a fan of Avatar: The Last Airbender this summer. Well, what happened was that I basically strongarmed him into watching it with me, it was fun, and I figured we could do the same sort of thing with a different show later. That show... is called Total Drama. I found it this summer, watched it, and then strongarmed DF into watching it too, commentating via private messages. And as of last count, the chat log compromised 102 pages of private messaging. Amongst these messages were many nuggets of comedic gold alongside boring scheduling and stuff. I have begun the task of extracting the best bits out of this mass, and even helpfully (Stella) marking (DashForever) who is talking by color. Each episode is in a separate folder, so you can read as you watch the series. It gets better further on, really. Enjoy Season 1...

Personally, I know nothing about the Humane Society of the United States, but this ad is probably the best one I've seen all year, if not ever [media=] [/media] Anyways I did some digging, and basically it gave me a shitstorm of bias from both sides. Ad was provided by HumaneWatch, which is a subsidiary of the Center for Consumer Freedom, which is an umbrella nonprofit/lobby group for food, tobacco, and alcohol companies. So not in my good books by any stretch of the imagination. That being said though, I do not support some of its opponents either, such as MADD or PETA, but others, like the CDC, I definitely support. But that's not my point here, I just want to point out how epic this ad is, so... watch it. Edit: So a Super-PAC is officially called a 501(c )(4)... the more you know
