“Infomania” from the Bitter Newsroom that can lower your IQ by twice as much as smoking pot: • Conan officially apologized for his obnoxious hair—and publicly stated that he won’t agree to follow Jay Leno in NBC’s new late night wars that began after the network canceled Leno’s primetime show and moved him to 11:35 PM.  That will keep some …

I Want to Leave Law for Private Equity / Venture Capital

Ex-Bitter Columns, Lawyer 6 Comments

I’m a first-year corporate associate at a large San Francisco firm, and I’m interested in leaving the law and getting into private equity or venture capital.  It seems like a pretty easy job with a huge upside.  I know a few people in that business, and they don’t seem super smart (or super cool).  So, I have to believe that …

My Dashboard Confessional

Mr. 162 Columns, Lawyer 13 Comments

Call it karma.  I buy a new (slightly used) car and it has a squeak.  Nothing major.  Just a tiny little squeak coming from behind the dashboard.  Just a little peep to remind me that this car is, in fact, not new.  New cars do not have squeaks coming from behind the dashboard.  True: It is a 2008 Mercedes Benz.  …

Headlines from the Bitter Newsroom that endorse Ochocinco’s “wild sex check” for orthopedic injuries: • You can be bitter all you want about lawyer crap, but sometimes it’s good to get your head out of your ass and look around.  When Seun Adbiyi graduated Yale Law in June 2009, he was the guy everyone probably hated: A good-looking minority with …
