An excess of human rights

This weekend I read:

The Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties;

The final draft of the International Law Commission's Articles on State Responsibility;

The International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights;

The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights;

The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women;

The Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment;

two Law Review articles about universal jurisdiction for international crimes;

and I am about to read International Law in a Nutshell all in prepping for a 40 page paper due in less than two weeks. You just WISH you could have my life right now, don't you?
