A Nerd You Know You Are (June 7, 2010)

. . .

“Do you know that we are now leaving the Fifth Circuit and entering the Ninth Circuit?”

“Money serves as a medium of exchange and a store of value and a unit of account, all at the same time.  Wow.  Life will never be the same.”

“Do you think it is an example of a metonym or is it more precisely a synecdoche?”

“I would rather hold and read the decision in one of those musty old United States Reporters in the library rather than on line.”

“This year’s meetings of the Federal Open Market Committee are now available on line.”

“I anticipate using the word ‘paradigm’ three times in one sentence.  Something like ‘the new paradigm is the paradigm of all paradigms.’”

“The Minutes of the FOMC are now available on line.  . . .  Do you ever get the feeling that these economists have a challenging time thinking and writing clearly.”

“Perhaps it cannot be taught, but it seems that it can be conveyed and fostered.  Babies do not come into the world crying in iambic pentameter.”

. . .
