I've been taking an interest in my dogs balls recently (bear with me...) because we have his sister too, and we definitely don't want them getting up to any mischief together.I've never thought about counting the wrinkles on a dogs nuts.... Are they wrinkley?
It opened my eyes a bit when i served on oneAs for jurors - I can echo that several of the people involved when I was on jury duty didn't seem all that suitable. From the man who was happy to vote guilty because the defnedant 'looked a run 'un', to the woman who refused to find guilty because as far as she was concerned, the only way it could be proved beyond any reasonable doubt was if she had witnessed the attack herself.
Oh, and the people who tried to convince her to vote guilty anyway because 'all the rest of us are, so eventually the judge will accept a majority verdict anyway - you're just making us have to stay here for longer'
Oh (again) and the jury spokesman who told the judge we'd reached a unanimous decision when we hadn't.
Winston Churchill said that the best argument against a democracy was to spend 5 minutes with the average voter. I think a similar thing could be said about the jury system!
