In random peronal news [Dec. 16th, 2005|10:13 pm]
Apparently I've been called in for Jury duty screening in Evanston on January 10th. I find this rather ironic, as I've lived in Evanston a relatively short time and I've already come up. I hope that "I go to school in a different state, this is going to be really difficult for me" is enough of an argument to get me out.
If I can't get out of it, I hope that it's at least informative/hilarious.

First of all going to school in another state is at least enough to get your selection delayed. If not, claiming an interest in philsophy should. If this still doesn't work, try hard, either talk about those feminist bastards and how they are trying to take jobs from the men who really deserve them or claim to believe that everything is relative or you don't believe in causality, that should get the DA the defense or both to get you tossed from the pool

ABM got called for duty as well, while in college. They never got to his number, but being in school in a different state wasn't enough of a reason to get him out of it....

Illinois doesn't allow the "Im a student" defense, it's a state law. The gov told me so much when I got called my senior year. They also didn't accept the "I haven't lived in Illinois for three years" defense either.

IL sucks, MN has the undue distress clause that allows for an extension on the form that gets sent to you. Guess that just shows why MN is so much better
