One of the eight billion pieces of mail I recieved while I was gone was a Juror Summons for Los Angeles County, except the date passed, so I had to reschedule.

They gave me a choice of next week or sometime in November, so basically my choice was: next week. So, woo Jury Duty.

Any advice on how not to get picked? I was thinking of going to find an “I (heart) (marijuana leaf)” shirt down at the boardwalk this afternoon…

    Silly: Sit there rocking back and forth and laughing to yourself the whole time.

    Less silly: Tell them you’ve read the work of psychologist Elizabeth Loftus (UC Irvine) who has shown that false memories can easily be created and you can’t possibly believe any eye-witness testimony (this is what one of my professors does).

    Alternative: Do jury duty. Hey, you’ll get paid 40 cents an hour, and it’s not like you have anything else to do for the next few weeks…

    Heh, my mom’s advice was to dress really preppy and bring a book about law. It’s a way of sort of screaming “I am a jury of nobody’s peers.”

    And I love the spectacularly tasteless T-Shirt Hell. If I’d be wearing one of their shirts to get out of jury duty, it’d surely be this one: http://www.tshirthell.com/store/product.php?productid=323
