we finish each other’s s

pace: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.

Being a nice person is so fun

Waiter messes something up? You can see the relief on their faces when you don’t scream and swear at them about it

Extra tickets at an arcade/prize place? Watch a little kid’s face light up when you give them a bunch of tickets

There are too many assholes in this world. Be a nice person.

A glorious fuck-ton of facial expressions [Part 1].

And before people jump on me, I did my best to look for a larger demographic for skin colour, but the ones I did find were either blurry, didn’t display as many emotions as the ones above, were poorly cropped, or weren’t very diverse in expression. I really did try; I searched for a while before my impulse to chillax and post what I had overrode my determination. But chill for a while, ‘cause there’ll be a part 2 in the very near future, and I’ll try to include ‘em then. I’ll see what I can find. Cheers.

“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.”

my understanding is that trial lawyers are specifically looking for the least-smart, least likely to ask questions, jurors they can get. They really are trying to avoid jurors thinking too hard about the details. That’s how you keep a system where people go to jail for possession of less than 2 grams, and ppl shoot unarmed black teenagers then claim “self-defense”, going.

Never waste your time trying to explain who you are to people who are committed to misunderstanding you.
