Life with a Law Student: The Invisible Hand

Mr Cinical: Sometimes, in front of my friends, I refer to you as the “invisible hand”.

Me: Oh, you mean that I have the effect of injecting some equilibrium into your life? (Obviously I was thinking Adam Smith).

Mr. Cinical: Errr, no. It strikes at times when I (have to) keep you company instead of exercising the option to hang out with my friends.

And hence, in patent law language, you are “a method comprising: signaling one’s intention without any physical contact, verbal communication or telepathy, exercising undue influence based, at least in part on the signaling, responsive to an event that that causes unhappiness “.

Me: ………….. In plain english,  you mean I call the shots lah!
