    Luckily my mother can't vote, neither can my GF.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    My mother was the first female in her family to vote. Yes, that is how long ago that was. At least your mom and GF don't have to worry about being called up for jury duty!

    True, though they would probably both enjoy it.

    I tell everyone about jury nullification if they get a jury notice, they will never get picked if they mention this is court

    (or the ability of jurors to ask witnesses questions)

    Well, if I get another notice, I'm looking you up. The only time I was picked I was kicked off because my BIL is a paramedic and it was a medical negligence case.

    My gripe: I stay the hell away from specialists. I go in figuring on a bone spur and ADD, I come out with 3 minor slipped disks that are causing pain on the wrong side of the body, ADD, major depression (I'm calling BS), and general anxiety disorder.

    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

    Well, damn. I'm not going to ask how your day is going.

    jurors aren't selected on their competence but rather their incompetence
