    Because I was taking a break when they instituted that system.

    I'm as clean as a whistle.

    I've gotten three infractions total. Two were the result of me being a douchebag. One was the result of a H/A mod accusing me of giving illegal advice when I wasn't, but didn't care that I wasn't, he just thought I was.

    I've never seen the Terminator movies


    I saw Doctor Atomic on Saturday at the met. It was mindblowing.
    John Adams, right?

    Neat.

    Yep. The ending was one of the most powerful pieces I've ever heard.

    until they kicked me off the jury.

    Actually they can't do that. It's your duty as a citizen to serve on a jury but it's your right as a juror to conduct jury nullification.

    It's counter-productive to the whole democratic legislative process thing, but taking any action to prevent it would be counter-productive to the whole fair trial thing, which is of a more immediate relevance in this case.

    They can find a way. They're lawyers, their field of professional expertise is finding legal ways to do illegal things.

    Good point.

    Like I said, they already found a way, and the lawyers in question are judges. Not to mention that the prevailing view in the United States has become that jury nullification is a power of a jury, not a right.

    The director's cut of Terminator 2 is awesomer.

    This is true. I remember reading somewhere that if James Cameron had gotten to shoot the entire screenplay like he wanted the movie would have been something like 4 hours long.

    Unfortunately the world couldn't handle that much awesome.

    You know, this is funny. I love the uncut version of Aliens, but while some of the cut scenes in T2 were awesome (like the one in the garage when they unlock the learning controls on his cpu), there were some really awkward scenes that I'm glad were cut.

    Generally I like the extended editions of movies more, particularly if it's like LotR where the cut scenes help hold the story closer to the book and are awesome anyway, but T2 is one of the few where I prefer the theatrical version.

    Yeah, but the screenplay had a lot of badassness in it, apparently. Lots of scenes of the future, Kyle and John grown up, Skynet and the time machine, winning the war and so on.

    9 dollars per person is pretty good if you're eating out

    Oh I got screamed at during my jerb for the first time ever. This guy with alzheimers shouted at me because the quiche was too small. He "demanded to see the guy that dared call that a quiche"

    Then he yelled at me again later for trying to explain the bill. And every time I brought something out for him he congratulated me like I was a retarded child doing something right. Annnnnd left under 10% tip.

    I'm surprised I haven't encountered more terrible people while working. Most are, at worst, snooty or poor tippers.

    Best waiter trick I know is when someone leaves a really bad tip, go give it back to them and say "sir, you forgot your change." They'll invariably say "oh, no, that's the tip" or "keep it"

    Then you reply with: "I'm ok," or if you really dislike the person: " I think you need it more than I do"

    The look on their face is priceless.

    ahaha. I would probably get fired if I tacked on the second part but that would be so worth it.

    although truth be told I've only gotten bad tips, not like truly miserable ones like 0-5% or 3 dollars on a 90 dollar check

    Yeah, you don't really want to brag about Mexican food over on this side of the country. It's all in the Puerto Rican and Cuban food. And also the Brazillian meat buffets that are smattered across Roswell, GA for some damned reason.

    I live in a neighborhood with lots of people from Guadalajara, where I spent time building schools, so I can safely say that the food here is pretty authentic.

    That's fine, but the one scene that sticks out in my mind is where John says something like "Seriously, you need to understand that." And the Terminator makes a sort of :/ face. The whole thing was so badly acted that I cringe to think of it and it belongs on the cutting room floor.
