Wtf why won’t they pick me for jury duty?!

I swear I’m like one of eight people in the country that actually wants to get selected for jury duty. And it never, happens. 

The farthest that I’ve gotten was to sit in a big room and read my book for an hour before they said that I could go home. Everyone was in their complaining, wanting to leave, and here I was with my fingers crossed hoping that they allow me to say. 

I recognize it as my civic duty to be part of the judicial process. Somebody’s life and future could depend on my ability to recognize the nuances of their particular situation. And then there’s the experience of it all, getting to watch the judicial process in action  and in real action; not the televised drama we see during celebrity trials or the scripted act in film. 

And I was hopeful that today was my chance. And it’s not. Thanks, today. 😕

Cloudchella and Me

So, for the past month my life was chaos  in the best way possible. Three events have been thoroughly engulfing my time: the ongoing Silver Spanner deck-building Tournament series, BABSCon 2017, and Coachella. Two of these are clearly MLP CCG related, and I will talk about them in separate posts. 

Coachella, for those not aware, is the largest music and arts festival in Northern California (my brothers and I have been attending for years). Any Brony will remember a moment in the season 7 Premier when Twilight Sparkle was fantasizing a life where Starlight Glimmer lives with Ember and the dragons. At one point, one of the dragons comments on going to ‘Cloudchella’. I suspect that there is not a huge overlap between the Coachella-attending and Brony populations, because every Internet search that I’ve conducted looking for “cloudchella’ has referenced smoking and 4/20 culture. Never the less, I had to hit the polo fields with my lucky Pinkie chain and my car in full Cloudsdale mode. It was an amazing time, and I’d recommend it to anypony who loves partying.

The Foot Clan is REAL!!! :O

Out in the SF Bay Area, a mob of 50 teenagers recently rushed a BART train and robbed the passengers. Now, these kids are popping up around the place committing more crime. A huge organized group of teens committing coordinated crimes across the city? Sound familiar at all?
I remember hearing story’s of this back in Japan. It was a shadow organization known as The Foot. They practiced the mysterious art of ninjutsu. They would strike hard, the. Disappear without a trace. Except when they “crashed into a crash ” (read the article) and got caught. That wasn’t very Foot-like.
