Summoned by the State

I’ve been summoned to sit on a jury. I’ve just had to fill out this online form with all kinds of crazy information. I answered everything straight up, and my Libertarian nature made me take some of the questions a little less seriously — I don’t know why the government needs to know some of these things. Here were some of my answers:

What is the occupation of your kids? Crying and Pooping
What is your religion? Pastafarian
What are your hobbies? Why on earth do you want to know this? Just google me.

On that last one, they will find this blog, find out how opinionated I am and judgmental and maybe they will say I don’t have to serve on the jury. I should have put my hobbies are: “making fun of trail lawyers and forming vigilante groups to hunt down child molesters”.

    Interesting.. I always wonder how the jury system works in the state, as saw in movies always.

    So basically every citizen has a chance to being summoned as a jury?

  • Yes – pretty much everyone can be selected for jury duty, unless you are a convicted criminal. This is why you pretty much get juries full of idiots… the average American has a rather dull mind. They should have IQ tests… But I also think they should have IQ tests for voting.
