You know the LSAT rules your life when...

So after I drop off the progeny at school this morning, I rolled into the YMCA for my daily workout. I'm ~40 minutes into an hour long stationary bike workout, led by a training video that both encourages and mocks you through a series of intervals. Today, its riding with the pro peloton in the Tour De Suisse and I'm giving it all I have to stay in the break (re: sweating all over the place and my leg ache). Suddenly, my partner in the break flats and I have to wait for the pack to catch up (start a rest interval). The screen cuts to text, "Life... Life is cruel."

As I'm currently 3/4 through the Introduction to Logic section in the CC, my brain immediately goes to work. Life is cruel, the two concepts are life and cruel. Assume an implied group 1 indicator of "all" and you get Life - Sufficient Condition, Cruel - Necessary Condition. The contra-positive gets you if its not cruel, then its not life.

You just can't get away from the LSAT, even when you are killing it in the gym. However, I eventually won the Tour De Suisse today with a killer sprint at the end.

    ... You have dreams in which you improvise logic games to solve actual problems in your life.

    lol

    This is very true. It makes me feel like I'm going crazy when I notice stuff like this. But, It's pretty cool when you spot fallacies in everyday arguments, in the news, or even in books that have been edited and published. For instance, I saw a formal logical fallacy in one of my friend's textbooks, where the textbook was trying to make a simple argument, which happened to be central to the point of the chapter. The form was similar to this:

    x --> y
    y
    So, X

    Mistaking a necessary condition for a sufficient condition.

    You can probably imagine my excitement lol.

    You are done teaching for the semester and only now realize you wrote your grading rubric in terms of Most, Some and Few....

    I feel you. I finished in September and can't quite pull myself away. I told myself I would stop once I finished the LSAT, once I got my score, once I finished my apps, and now I'm going with once I make my decision. The thing is addictive.

    I'm going to tell you a secret. Part of me wants to take the logic games from December. Not timed or anything. Just cause I kind of miss the feeling.

    When you wake up to your alarm in a panic because you were dreaming of taking the LSAT and your alarm was the section timer going off in your dream.

    This is hilarious... I find myself doing the same thing and also talking like JY - "what the hell kind of answer choice is this!"

    Don't you love it when those ads don't sound as acceptable as they were in your pre-LSAT days?

    I kid you not, on several occasions now, I have been doing LG and LR in my dreams. And they wonder why it has been found to rewire your brain. LoL
    I actually have been feeling guilty because I have missed a few days from working on finals and last assignments (in accelerated courses, 7.5 weeks). Luckily, one dealt heavily with conditional logic, so it wasn't entirely "time off".

    Today at the gym I did the elliptical machine and at the end it said "average heart rate: 153" and seeing the number "153" made me genuinely sad like I just got that LSAT score. Also yes often right before waking up I have been having dreams of LR questions as I've been doing LR before bed lately.

    Keep a dream journal and you'll probably be able to lucid dream eventually.

    When you bring conditional logic into arguments you have with your significant other to justify why they're wrong.....

    When you convert unless statements into if not conditionals.
