OH COME ON
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME RIGHT NOW
I scrolled past this but I audibly whispered “NO…” to nobody in particular so here we are. Damn it.
NO IM SORRY I AM REBLOGGING THIS AGAIN, BECAUSE SERIOUSLY I JUST WANT TO TAKE A MINUTE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE FACT THAT MISHA HAD BEEN TORTURED BY J2 MERCILESSLY THAT ENTIRE DAY BUT HIS GRAND MASTERPLAN TO GET BACK AT THEM WAS PAPER AIRPLANE BOMB. I HONESTLY THINK HE MIGHT BE THE MOST PRECIOUS HUMAN IN THE WORLD. WE NEED TO PROTECT HIM AT ALL COSTS.
“In 2002, having spent more than three years in one residence for the first time in my life, I got called for jury duty. I show up on time, ready to serve. When we get to the voir dire, the lawyer says to me, “I see you’re an astrophysicist. What’s that?” I answer, “Astrophysics is the laws of physics, applied to the universe—the Big Bang, black holes, that sort of thing.” Then he asks, “What do you teach at Princeton?” and I say, “I teach a class on the evaluation of evidence and the relative unreliability of eyewitness testimony.” Five minutes later, I’m on the street.
A few years later, jury duty again. The judge states that the defendant is charged with possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine. It was found on his body, he was arrested, and he is now on trial. This time, after the Q&A is over, the judge asks us whether there are any questions we’d like to ask the court, and I say, “Yes, Your Honor. Why did you say he was in possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine? That equals 1.7 grams. The ‘thousand’ cancels with the ‘milli-’ and you get 1.7 grams, which is less than the weight of a dime.” Again I’m out on the street.”

“I teach a class on the evaluation of evidence and the relative unreliability of eyewitness testimony.” Five minutes later, I’m on the street.
This is a good illustration of what’s wrong with the US criminal justice system.
I’m more struck by the second anecdote, in which he was evidently disqualified from jury duty for displaying the ability to do math.
I don’t even watch this show, but how great is it that Scott’s all “…I’m the hot girl? OMG. GIRLS ARE AMAZING. AND ALL THE HOT GIRLS I KNOW ARE SO FANTASTIC GREAT CREATURES THAT ARE THE BEST. OMG I AM A HOT GIRL! BEST COMPARISON EVER! EVERYONE THINKS I AM LIKE, IN LEAGUE WITH ALLISON AND LYDIA AND OTHER AWESOME GREAT WOMEN! I need to tell my mom, she will be so proud!”
So put that in your pipe and smoke it
Might I also add that many settlements of men were prone to shooting at the eagles withe their arrows. So they never flew over those settlements…which there were a lot of in between the route to destroy the ring.
