FTFA: One of the key propagators of Donald Trump's post-election conspiracy theories, Wood has been the subject of an ongoing Georgia Bar investigation. As revealed in documents Wood disclosed, the Bar's probe looks into his litigation to prevent the Joe Biden presidency as well as the lawyer's mental health.
In response, Wood filed a federal lawsuit likening that request to the Salem Witch Trials and asking a federal judge to block it.


Salem Witch Trials, eh Lin? If that were the case, I think you might have gotten the Giles Corey treatment.

"I will not see a doctor under any circumstances.  To prove I'm not crazy I'm going to complain in a way no sane person would take seriously"

The Bar's summary also rattled off Wood's conspiracy theories depicting Chief Justice John Roberts as a "member of a club or cabal requiring minor children as an initiation fee" and calling former Vice President Mike Pence is a "TRAITOR, a Communist Sympathizer & a Child Molester."

Y'know... the really scary thing about these QAnon whackjobs is the number of educated people who've fallen into their tinfoil hat lunacy.  One would hope that people who've spent many years in higher education - doctors, lawyers, etc - would have developed enough critical thinking skills along the way to realize that Bill Clinton is not an shapeshifting reptilian alien working on behalf of the Five Jew bankers to bring the world under the control of Illuminati.

One would hope... and yet here we are.  People with high end educations - people who should be upper crust of our intelligencia - time and again falling for conspiracy theories so absurd and so unbelievable that even your average Scientologist would say "Seek help, man."

It makes me wonder if they're putting something in water.  OMG THEY'RE PUTTING SOMETHING IN THE WATER!  They're turning us all into conspiracy theorists!  Quick, where's my tinfoil water purifier!?

Once the Bar decides IF there are grounds for disbarment, THEN Woods can take it to arbitration.

So far, they haven't even gotten to that point. So, as any 2L who has taken ConLaw knows, they haven't even gotten to the threshold of "can we bring this case to court yet?" because the case doesn't exist yet.

But all his histrionics are sure not helping him.

There were thousands of architects and construction engineers signed onto a 9/11 truther group declaring that the towers could never have collapsed under those circumstances. They got a ton of details wrong from the construction of the WTC to the timetable of its collapse. But even though they were supposed to be subject experts they backed a completely fictional account of the collapse to fit their narrative.

Why would lawyers be any better at this? The problem isn't education or knowledge but the decision to discard all that because it is inconvenient to the desired narrative. And as long as humanity is humanity, that will always be the case.

A lot of old lawyers are dumb.

Law school admissions are way more competitive now than they were 30 years ago - the caliber of average accepted student is higher because demand outstrips supply.

This is because law was an old boys club for a long time.  Now that you can be non-white and/or female lawyer, there are non-white and/or female people who are applying.  These people push out a lot of the dim white males.  As a result, the typical lawyer is smarter.

This is part of why white males are pissed.

Architects I wouldn't expect much from.  They're the ones who design the ugly buildings that the engineers have to figure out how to build.  They know next to nothing about actual structural engineering.

I suspect that there were some folks claiming to be architects because they have no idea that architects aren't experts in this, but there might be some others who think they're experts in everything by osmosis.  (Like how a certain doctor senator pretends to know something about virology)

I've never done anything professionally with my civil engineering degree, but I know that moments (rotational forces) are bad, so if you can keep things simply supported, you don't need to worry about the transfer of unexpected forces.  Not attaching floors to the walls seems a little bit extreme, but I could see why you might do that to avoid the buckling and stress concentrations that you'd get from abnormal load patterns

But unless you've had to do the calculations for worse case scenarios (basically, a checkerboard-like load pattern at the full live load, alternating loaded/unloaded sections each floor, plus uneven snow and wind loads, and worse case dead loads), it makes no sense why someone would do something that seemingly idiotic in light of how it actually failed

But the codes only tend to get updated after someone builds something and makes a mistake.  So I suspect that you now have to assume weakened supports due to jet fuel fires,  increased winds due to urban canyons, and all of the other things that have come up in the past couple of decades.  Or you will have to once the building codes catch up
