Studying for the LSAT takes up an incredible amount of time. You literally spend hundreds of hours learning about dinosaurs, sea turtles, and cryptozoological marsupials. And you can’t help but remembering some of the more interesting nuggets you learn along the way. Knowing that you’re gaining a wealth of useless trivia is one of the things that makes studying for the LSAT slightly more bearable. Sadly, you can’t always trust logical reasoning as a source of unbiased (i.e., non-made-up) factoids. But often the subject matter is true, as well. Starting today, I’m going to look at some of the more interesting bits of real information that the LSAT has given us over the years.
If you’re like me, and write an LSAT-related blog with a deadline that is nearly missed on a near weekly basis, you’ll know that one of the best ways to attack procrastination is by heading over to Wikipedia and hitting the “Random article” link. This hasn’t actually ever helped me write a blog, but it has been invaluable when it comes to finding ways to sit in a chair and not write.
