If a corporation is a person, it fits all of the DSM-V criteria for a psychopath  
If you want a surefire way to feel even more despondent about the future than you already do, I can recommend no better documentary than The Corporation. If you just want to see a damn fine documentary about the rise of the corporation as the dominant public institution, it'll do that too.

I laughed, I cried, it became a part of me (No kidding!).

Yeah, I watched that last semester. Pretty good and it sounded pretty dead on too. Can't say that I laughed or cried about it either though.

if you came down to the Cities one weekend, and told us beforehand, you and B and me could so totally sit down at a coffeeshop of our choice and have conversations over a delicious caffeinated coffeedrink or relaxing herbal tea beverage of your choice. Not sure of your weekend activity preference (assuming you don't work), and in actuality, to include Bria it would have to be early evening say 5pm, but I thought I'd throw the idea out, suspended in air upon a tether of psychic ectoplasm (or maybe it's a quantum tether in discrete space-time).
Just remembering how fun it was the last time we Actually saw you (as opposed to a pass by at F's Bday).

Dude, trust me on this, and this is not legal advice in any way shape or form, corporations are not individuals.

No, but they have many of the same leqal abilities as a person, such as the ability to own property or owe money. In that way, they are like a person that will never die. Right?

They do. They're not the only corporate form that has these abilities. There are things they cannot do unlike an individual though. They don't have the constitutional rights for example. For your purposes though you're right. It's of course the only way they can get things done. Without those legal abilities they wouldn't function.
