    Go to law school. The lawyers will make sure they keep making money while pay for doctors and engineers goes down.

    The times that lawyers (all of them) used to make money are gone. Every year more lawyers go out to the market than any other professional; a lot more. The numbers vary but it is safe to say that we have now around 800,000 lawyers in the market, which is 1 for every 300 americans. Plus, every year 90,000 people apply for law school. Still, lawyers make lot of money when they have a firm, but one is going to have to work for a good numbers of years, possibly making as low as 20 an hour (yes it's true), before he or she can open a firm.

    PS: That's why I'm reconsidering going to law scholl right now.

    Well I like politics a lot, ectually I'm a political science student :) Though I can't deny that politics sometimes can be reaaaaaaaaaaaally dirty. But that is people's fault, not the system's fault.

    I have a friend who does intellectual property law. He works with UF and UCF on patents for new ideas. That sounds kind of cool. I also think I'd enjoy construction law.

    Im sure thats pretty slow (generally speaking) with todays economy. I doubt I could even make it through law school but then again it can't be too hard with so many damn lawyers everywhere. I studied LSAT to train for MCAT verbal and wow that stuff is dry. Going back to MCAT verbal was like picking up harry potter.

    Ill be at blanch around 4:30

    I am sad to see Fed's decline. I just cannot root for Nadal. Everything about him is so fake, imo. Fortunately, we have Novak. He can be annoying but he is real for sure.

    The courts were 100% dry. However, they were kind of dirty/dusty...

    :) the racquet is definitely very nice but I need more time to adjust to it. It is indeed very unique frame...

    Played three sets of doubles here in the neighborhood. Then took on the big sam and his serve. Did not finish but was playing well. Time for a beer and a hamburger.

    Played 2 sets of singles today. Was down a break 6-5 and 30-30. I hit two let cord winners in a row to break back and take the breaker. The wind picked up in the 2nd set and I started shanking too much.

    I took the lead tape off and that really helped on my serve. Hopefully I can keep the leather grips.

    Nice. and how fitting. Did you see the fear in Fed's eyes last night? He was scared and embarrassed to be on the same court as the Emperor Rafa. But I think I would rather see him lose to rafa than djoko... :twisted:

    Usually, just hope I get a look at a second serve. He seved better in the doubles than in our little game. I fiqure if I get it back, at least I have a chance. Unlike in most matches, where I really like to be aggressive on the returns.

    You are usually aggressive on the return? I've only witnessed that 300 or so times. :)

    Yeah I felt bad about Fed a little bit It looked like he was going to cry. Its tough to watch someone's decline. It did not look fair yesterday at times. Looked like it was Nadal against junior. Fed simply had no answer to anything Nadal was throwing at him.

    Also I use to think its exaggeration when they spoke how slow courts are but hitting little bit on them with Bob while I was at SEO really made me realize that it does make a difference.
    Those courts are like sand paper. You simply cannot finish a point by hitting through the player you have to move it around with spins and that is what Nadal is really good at. Look at Soderling he is master at hitting through the player yet he lost early. Now it even more humid then a week ago when I was there I can only imagine.

    Its going to be tough match tomorrow given that Djokovic also moves the ball and does not try to hit through the player but moves him till he is out of position. Plus unlike Fed's backhand Djokovic can use it for quick split second transition from defense to offense, on the fly (benefit of a two hander).

    Although I called 6-4 6-4 for Nadal yesterday when coyfish asked me. I slightly underestimating Rafas form so for tomorrow I will go with 6-2 3-6 7-5 for Rafa.

    What do you guys think what will be the score?

    They do...surface is very much like sand paper. I had soft running shoes on and it felt like my soles are sticking to the surface. You simply cannot hit through. Its good for clay courters like you though

    Miami is THE slowest hc masters. Goran and I played a few TBs and it was like a bullet-effect in the matrix...
