I thought I would share this with everyone here since we all have an interest in the era of our grandparents.  My grandmother was a British singer with the Oscar Rabin band, a successful British Big…Continue

"I don't understand what the question is. That said, it's a pretty simple issue in my opinion: she wants to live as a woman, she made the transition, and if that's how she wants to live then we should respect that. It's no concern…"

Betz replied to Jean-Francois's discussion What podcast are you listening to?
"I had the same experience! Truthfully, I found that I have a pretty superficial understanding of most historical events, which was very surprising because I always considered myself a "history buff." I have a pretty generalized interest in…"

Betz replied to Samuel Crow's discussion One Long Sleeve
"I actually saw another attorney in court the other day who has a similar problem (however both of his arms were "deformed"). He clearly had taken his shirts and suit into a tailor and had the tailor cut the sleeves from the top to make…"

Betz replied to Thomas Patrick's discussion Don Draper style ties? Where can I find them?
"Definitely the best place to look for ties like OP asked for and they are at a very reasonable price. I wear ties every day (I'm a lawyer :( . . . ) and I buy most of them from here. Great place."

Betz replied to Andrew Cannon's discussion Wingtip Shoes
"OP, I would suggest wearing suede wingtips for every day wear. They are more casual and still very sharp. Cheers,"

Betz replied to Chu Kim's discussion Productive Things to Do While Commuting to Work
"As others have noted, I listen to audiobooks, podcasts, and lectures. You can find just about anything to suit your interest (for free!) in the world of podcasts. I have an audible subscription that gives me one book per month (which ends up being a…"

Betz replied to Paul_of_TX's discussion Man Shoots Guy in Daughters Bed in the group The Great Debate
"No he is not "given the benefit of the doubt." Texas law, like every other common law jurisdiction, specifically uses the word "reasonable" multiple times in defining when a person may use deadly force. Reasonableness in every…"

Betz replied to Paul_of_TX's discussion Man Shoots Guy in Daughters Bed in the group The Great Debate
"I disagree. I think that Texas law makes a presumption that the actor has a reasonable belief, but the reasonable belief must be that there is an imminent commission of one of those enumerated crimes. I don't think the law means that if you see…"
Mar 14, 2014
Betz replied to Paul_of_TX's discussion Man Shoots Guy in Daughters Bed in the group The Great Debate
"The law requires a reasonable interpretation of another's actions; i.e. an objective interpretation. Someone could be subjectively in fear of one's life, but it is objectively unreasonable. In such a case, a shooting is not justified. That…"

Betz replied to Paul_of_TX's discussion Man Shoots Guy in Daughters Bed in the group The Great Debate
"Thanks for sharing. Definitely an interesting statute. I'm not sure I interpret it in the same way I think you do though. Section (a)(2)(B) states that one may use deadly force when one reasonably believes deadly force is immediately necessary…"

Betz replied to Paul_of_TX's discussion Man Shoots Guy in Daughters Bed in the group The Great Debate
"I don't agree, because I don't know what the "reaching for something" meant and whether it was reasonable for the father to believe he or his family was under the imminent threat of harm. "
Mar 14, 2014
Betz replied to Paul_of_TX's discussion Man Shoots Guy in Daughters Bed in the group The Great Debate
"Do you have a citation to that particular law? I find that hard to believe that Texas law permits the use of deadly force merely by finding a trespasser in one's home. My understanding of Texas law, which is the same in many common law…"

"Alles ist nie so schlimm wie es aussieht. Normalesweise ist es schlecter."

- Im "schlechter" fehlt ein "h" ...
- "Normalesweise" ist nicht korrekt. Richtig wäre: "Normalerweise"
- Nach "schlimm" würde sich glaub ich ein Komma gut machen. Ich bin mir aber nicht wirklich sicher in dieser Sache ...
