One More Exam

Here I am handing in my Equality Law paper at the Common Law secretariat. The last paper required for my LLB.

Yesterday I promised no more critters, so I thought I'd give you an excerpt from my insightful and seminal work:

Auton and Wynberg – Section 15 and Autism: No gains for substantive equality

But who would believe that the day after I promise no more critters there would be news stories about:

  • Upcoming awards to four life-saving dogs, one of whom is a cancer-sniffin' doggy! [story]
  • A kitty in Germany who saved a baby's life [illustrated story]; and
  • A tailed frog and a two-tailed lizard in Malaysia? [story with genuine pix]

But seriously, this is no longer a blog about cute little animals. One exam between me and the completion of my studies.

It sounds very impressive, in an "obscure and I have no idea what it means" kind of way.

In any event, I would say that congratulations are definitely in order on completing the last paper for the LLB. That's a phenomenal accomplishment, and I'm impressed (in a "hot damn, I know what that means and it's huge" kind of way).

Bring on the champagne and truffles!

Yes! Congratulations! And if you're not doing any more fuzzy puppy bloggage, have you at least considered cannibalistic squid stories?

David Scrimshaw said...

Thank you all for your congratulations.

Coyote, aren't squid stories old hat?

David Scrimshaw said...

Thank you all for your congratulations.

Coyote, don't you think killer squid stories are old hat?

Squid plan to take over the world. They bear constant watching. But why do you say that a story datelined yesterday is old hat?

David Scrimshaw said...

I don't want to get into a flame war with a carnivore, but this story is from July last year

Meanwhile, Phillips, Nichols and Jackson reported on cannibalistic squid in 2003, and Mouat, Collins, and Pompert wrote about them in 2001.

Mmmm, citations 'n everything. I see that your putative legal career is off to a good start. (Too bad we didn't start in on whales, then I coulda said, "Mmmm, cetaceans" instead.) But I stand by my previous statement: those suckers bear constant watching. It seems highly reasonable to me, to re-ring the alarums for the cephalopod menace every coupla years. 'Specially since there are still, inexplicably, way more 'fuzzy-puppy' than 'squid' blogs...
