“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.”

the sad thing is, we really need men like this on jurys.

    "It’s called the ‘American Dream’ because you have to be asleep to believe it."

    I was nodding along throughout all of this. See, this is why I will always support student loans for a meaningful education, pursuing what you want to do especially if it’s not going to make you a good amount of money off the bat (or at all)… because the only true rebellion is thinking critically and doing what you want.

Important lesson: You cannot lead effectively if you do not share the same burden as your followers.

Yes yes yes yes yes. This explains everything.

I really wish more people understood this concept (specifically, people IN management who really have no damned business supervising others).

  9. Hundreds of Reasons not to be Religious #127

    strongagnostic:

    Religions have always had trouble explaining the inequities of birth. Some of us are born sick, or deformed, or in pain, or drug-addicted or to a dirt-poor family. Some babies are never out of pain their entire short life.

    Others are born healthy and rich and enjoy a long life of luxury. Without any proof, religions say that the next life will compensate for the innocent suffering in this life.

    Non believers say health and wealth at birth is mostly random. Anyone who has visited a home or school for horribly disabled children will have a hard time believing that this was planned by a loving God. Random bad and good is easier to accept than planned inequities.

    There’s a tune that you’ve probably heard throughout your life. It’s nine notes long, and it’s almost always used to signal that something vaguely Asian is happening or is about to happen.

    You know what I’m talking about. The tune’s most prominent role is probably in that 1974 song, “Kung Fu Fighting.” It comes in right as Carl Douglas is singing that anthemic “Oh-hoh-hoh-hoah.”

    The tune is ubiquitous. And like many things that are just in the air, few ever ask where it came from. But we did.

  11. Lies I’ve Told My 3 Year Old Recently

    Trees talk to each other at night.
    All fish are named either Lorna or Jack.
    Before your eyeballs fall out from watching too much TV, they get very loose.
    Tiny bears live in drain pipes.
    If you are very very quiet you can hear the clouds rub against the sky.
    The moon and the sun had a fight a long time ago.
    Everyone knows at least one secret language.
    When nobody is looking, I can fly.
    We are all held together by invisible threads.
    Books get lonely too.
    Sadness can be eaten.
    I will always be there.

“Everything was fine at breakfast. We talked normally. I went to work thinking that it was just a normal day. Then when I came home, the door was locked, which was strange, but I didn’t think much of it. Everything seemed to be in place when I went inside the house. So I sat down and watched TV, expecting them to come home any minute. After awhile, I went upstairs to the bedroom. And that’s when I noticed all her clothes were missing. Then I ran to the children’s room, and all their clothes were missing too. After seventeen years, she left me without saying a word.” (Nairobi, Kenya)
