    My major was Communications, Law, Economics, and Government.
    Ozzy - that edition of Aristotle's Ethics is the best available (I have it also). It makes me wonder why you have the inferior translations of the Metaphysics and the Politics since Apostle's translations of these are also the best.

    What's the Loeb? I can't read the title.

      • While we're onto pictures of parked cars etc..

        An acquaintance sent me this photo. The grafitti reads "[long] live the Christian baptism".

        Better than "Bush is a nazi", anyway.

            I dunno, my professor, who was really anal about the proper translation, prefered the Lord translation of the Politics. Maybe you should check it out, he knows his stuff. As for Metaphysics, I bought that on my own. Maybe in high school yet, so I just picked up whichever was cheapest I bet, heh.

            The Loeb was Xenophon IV with Memorabilia, Oeconomicus, Symposium, and Apology.

              I prefer the Apostle translations as they are really close to the Greek and consistent across the whole series. I haven't read the Lord, but I do have the two volume Oxford set as well, so there probably isn't much point in buying new ones.

              Who was your professor?

              • Me in some kind of funky a** discount outlet. I was bored out of my a**. I didn't shave that morning and didn't have any breakfast. My friend took the pic.

                I'm currently in my "disgruntled" phase.

                        • That second pic is probably one of the best ones I've seen yet. Funny

                          • Hmmm.... I wonder if that explains some of your postings on 'Poly. There's no way you can be on 20 hours a day.

                            Great pics!

                              • I did a double-take when I first saw that Legoland pic of the U.S. Capitol that OzzyKP posted. I used to work on Capitol Hill (in the Longworth H.O.B. - which would be off of the left side of that picture... were it real) and a number of the surrounding buildings looked wrong.
