Jury nullification. Pass it on.
Jury nullification is so fucking important.
This is something that more people should be aware of, if only because (in many states, at least) defense attorneys are actually prohibited from mentioning it to jurors. The law allows a jury to return a “not guilty” verdict contrary to the facts of the case, but not for the defense to inform them of that power or to argue for its application in the current trial.
I didn’t know about this. Wow.
This is SUPER IMPORTANT and also a good reason to show up for jury duty. You know all those laws you think are stupid? This is your chance to maybe do something about it.
I…. I thought this was common knowledge… signal boosting this because it obviously isn’t!
So I almost broke a bone for the first time in my life! These are photos of my left arm and leg. I was at Jacqui and Rick’s wedding on Saturday and went on the groom’s speedboat. Tom’s his best friend and still warned me against it. No joke! He cut the boat so fast I almost fell in the lake and my arm got caught between my body and the side of the boat, almost snapped in half!
I was laughing my ass off because no permanent damage was done and I had a blast. Took a lot of convincing to get the groom to stop apologizing, though.

"Some people still prefer the arranged marriage, especially in the countryside where tradition is still strong. The thought is that your parents know you very well, and will make the decision based on experience and not emotion. The divorce rate with arranged marriages is lower, because both families are heavily involved and there are many people committed to making the match work. But the tradition is on the way out. It used to be that you didn’t even see your wife until your wedding day, and you fell in love after your wedding, as you learned to support and care for each other. But today there’s Whatsapp and Facebook, so keeping two people apart is almost impossible. ‘Love marriages’ are becoming much more popular than arranged marriages, and even arranged marriages involve much more interaction than they used to. Many families still choose to uphold the appearance of an arrangement. Their children will come to them and say: ‘I fell in love.’ And they’ll say: ‘OK, let us arrange it.’"

So I’m moving to Oregon in October with my boyfriend. Just found this out this week and I’m ALL OVER THE PLACE. I’m excited, planning logistics out, making phone calls, worried because the main point of the move is that his dad is sick and lives out there. His dad is awesome and I want life to cut the man a break.
My mind is running like the Tasmanian Devil.
I need to learn to stop saying “Oregon” and start saying “Oregin” because Tom tells me only New Englanders say “Oregon”. BUT THAT’S HOW IT’S SPELLED. …Says the girl who knows Worcester is pronounced “Wuh-stah”. I guess I’d be confused if someone actually said New HampSHIRE vs. New HampSHER.
Telling work tomorrow. I’ll still be working there throughout September but they’ll need to plan out trainings to replace me and the couple other people that left in August right before Hell Month (October/Open Enrollment). Oh my God, I cannot believe I’m quitting right before Hell Month. I didn’t even think of that!
GOD DAMMIT my credit union only has branches in New Hampshire!
So this is crazy but I’m very excited.
