We suggest a career in litigation A tattoo-covered Coney Island, N.Y., sideshow performer who specializes in eating nails has found a new calling: becoming a lawyer. “I know it sounds weird, but I want to be a freak lawyer,” the man known for 15 years as “Eak the Geek” told the newspaper am New York. He hopes to work with “the alternative people, all the so-called riffraff, to give them legal representation that is not judgmental.” Eak, 45, whose given name is Eduardo Arrocha, said that he was starting classes at Thomas M. Cooley Law School. “The people here are very curious about me,” he said. “I’m the new zoo animal here.” Arrocha, a burly six-foot man with tattoos from his shaved head to his toes, acknowledges that his new career will bring a fashion challenge: “I’ve never had to tie a tie before.” &mdash Associated Press Higher Education A pair of former Northeastern University freshmen face charges after one allegedly leaned out of his dorm window and loudly told a woman in the dorm opposite his that he and his roommate were selling pot. Oops. Two police officers happened to be nearby. “If you’re looking for weed, my roommate Ferrante has some for sale,” Michael Emery said out of the window, according to authorities in Boston. Two plainclothes officers in the building overheard him and arrested Emery, 18, and Matthew Ferrante, 18, after finding marijuana, drug paraphernalia and alcohol in their room. They are no longer students at Northeastern, the university announced. &mdash Associated Press
