I had to. They’re such children lol.
Both voices are me, as always… Sorry if it sounds a bit off, I’m sick lol.
“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.”

This is a good illustration of what’s wrong with the US criminal justice system.
I’m more struck by the second anecdote, in which he was evidently disqualified from jury duty for displaying the ability to do math.
Headcanon that after the battle of Hogwarts, George dyes his hair an outrageous colour, and at first Molly is mad, but then she hears George whisper “I kept thinking it was him in the mirror”.
LEAVE MY SIGHT AND NEVER RETURN YOU’VE BEEN BANISHED
Apparently, you can find a dream just by looking for it because while Haru spent the better half of this season making it clear that going pro was not what he wanted, it only took about 5 minutes for him to do a complete 180.
While I’m glad that he’s happy, if you don’t think that this epiphany was contrived due to time constraints, you might need to rewatch the entire season.
i hope that, wherever my hair ties go, they’re happy. that’s all that matters
I dont normally post/reblog stuff like this, but jeasus christ im dying.

#i swear to god #lucius’ face in these gifs is heartbreaking #look at him #one the persons he most cares about doesn’t even look at him #he thinks his son hates him #he is profoundly hurt but he pretends he’s not #and he turns his face into a noble expression #because he’s a Malfoy #but he cares #because he’s human #and he can love
