2 weeks of jury duty finally came to an end yesterday. I obviously can't talk about it till three months from now, due to laws, but all i can say was that was the hardes choice i've had to make in a long, long time. You guys ever been in jury duty before ?

No and I don't even know anyone who has. Though it seems like an interesting experience.

ITs like those CSi movies, evidence, facts, testimonies, witnesses, all clues put together for you, but all 12 of you in the room have to agree on guilty or not guilty, very hard. I know now how OJ Simpson got free, it is hard to get 12 strangers to agree on the same thing, very hard.

ive been summoned for jury duty once. didnt get picked though.

didnt want to get picked either.

i just generally acted bored out of my mind(it was extremely boring). when in the courtroom where they asked each and every one of us a question, i just kinda laid my head back on the chair. actually almost fell asleep a couple times. the dude took like 10 minutes to ask each person a simple question. often pausing for no damn reason. talked so damn slow.

had to keep calling to see if they wanted me. They didnt.

This reminds me of an episode of "The Good Wife" when the defense lawyers used that a member of the Jury posted about the trial and the Jury deliberations in his blog to repeal the verdict.
