    Question now becomes if they raise the commission on the things enough to pay some of the server costs...

    Could anyone explain the Tanuki thing? That reference went right over my head...

    I must admit that while I am not planning on buying one now, the water bottle design is quite nice.

    People like to joke about making stew out of Biigoh, our tanuki moderator.

    For some reason.

    Overall, the base waterbottle appears decent and durable. However, the "Questionable" color is both very similar to the base bottle, and pitted. The "questing," on the other hand, is both beautiful & looks cleanly applied. I am unsure as to the durability of the bottle, though the 'instructions' deem it appropriate for cold liquids & hand washing. Will most likely end up using it for water & alcoholic beverages, and should it start to show deterioration quickly (may end up machine washing for destructive testing purposes) will update you all then. The words are either some form of epoxy or plastic applied, not a paint as it appeared in the picture; as such, they act as a fair grip enhancer (though they are more likely to be chipped off.)

    It does look about like the generated image paints it to look. Hopefully it stays good and useful.

    The real question: should I use it for my BYOB business law exam review? I don’t know how stainless will interact with beer...

    Nah, business department required course, which largely consists of our (lawyer) professor telling stories about him, his friends, and his ex-wife’s misadventures with the law - and either how they got out of it, why they were arrested, or how he used technicalities to win court battles with his ex-wife. He gave us the option to have a review in the classroom or a ‘review’ BYOB barbecue in the park across from campus, with the sheriffs department apparently providing meat.
    after the class ends, I’ll ask if I can have blanks of his exams and upload them (65% of the exam questions are supposedly based on reality.)

    ...I'm impressed he hasn't been disbarred? And simultaneously incredibly curious.

    I'm currently in law school so I've read some fuckin weird and usually depressing court cases (those are the ones that tend to set important precedents in common law), but sometimes professors share interestingly weird stories of their own.

    For example, my criminal law professor last semester told us a story about a former student of his who got arrested for a DUI because he had weed in his system. Said former student was a Defense Attorney who specialized in DUI clients (considering it's Wisconsin, it's pretty lucrative I'm sure). And the whole reason it came up is my professor was explaining the different types of DUI charges.

    He never talks about clients other than general trends between cases, just personal/familial experience. Additionally, all the stories that contain criminal activity are either very much beyond the statute of limitations, were not criminal activity when the occurred, or have already been tried. This is quite deliberate; just like how he explicitly told us the only reason the bbq is BYOB is so he doesn't have to assume liability for the students if they do something dumb after drinking.
    Edit:
    One of the more verifiable stories:
    So my Law prof & his buddies were boating in Missouri back 'quite a few years.' According to him, the punishment for a DUI at that point were less severe - especially if it was your first local offense. As such, they weren't worried that they all got raging drunk - though the laws on marine sobriety are more stringent than those on land. However, when they got back to land, they encountered local law enforcement. Now, the guy who was driving the boat has a masters in mechanical engineering... But he's also from West Virginia. And he never lost the accent... So even to the cop he sounded like a hick. So the cop essentially asked this friend, "Joe," if he could count from 1 to 100. Joe got a really thoughtfully look on his face, nodded, and confidently drawled
    "Usually."
    Joe spent that night in jail, and my professor, "Jeff," bailed him out the next day. Well, Jeff thought the whole incident was fairly funny, so he contacted the arresting sherrifs office, asking for the mugshot. The officer on duty esentially said
    "I need a reason to do that, why do you want it?"
    "Well, I found the whole incident pretty funny, so I want to make some T-shirts."
    "Alright, Jeff, I'll send it to you... but I want that shirt."
    Well, my Professor was wearing a shirt with "Free Joe" then a mugshot, then a county jail address on the front, then "can you count from one to one hundred," a glass of whiskey, and "Usually." on the back. as he told this to his business law class.

    Stainless is not corroded by beer unless it's a really shitty stainless with too little chromium.

    That is fucking brilliant. Also I want to specify is my criminal law professor was a former Prosecutor and never took on that former student as a client. He also never disclosed any names.

    But yeah, your professor sounds like a trip.

    Just got this. Probably would look better if it was not shiny, but it's surprisingly good quality for something that I got from random e-shop.

    Now I can finally lurk in style. ;)
