as much as i hate barbri, and as much as i hate contract law, the guy giving our lecture: David Epstein, from Southern Methodist, is an awesome, hilarious lecturer. not only are some of his hypotheticals [which i'll post later, when i have the book in front of me] are downright hysterical. today, he was discussing why a writing saying that one guy would do one thing was insufficient to memorialize a contract under the statute of frauds. in order to explain that both parties' names and oblications must be on there, he stated:
"there is no masturbation in contract law. there are always two people."
now you'll never forget that there must be at least two parties obligated under a contract. i sure won't.
