“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.”

Exactly.

“I teach a class on the evaluation of evidence and the relative unreliability of eyewitness testimony.” Five minutes later, I’m 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.

The love and family-like bond among Chilis

"After nearly two decades, the Chili Peppers have become, essentially, brothers. Anthony is the darkly handsome, moody one, alternatey the recluse and the showstopper. Flea is the mediator, the middle child, the well-adapted sibling skilled at negotiation and temperance. Chad is the protective, cheerful older brother, the guy who plays basketball and finds happiness a relatively easy feat. John is the sensitive one, the intellect, the deep thinker and the spiritual explorer. "Flea and Chad and I, we’re all kids at heart," says Kiedis. "But John is the one who pushes himself, who continues to explore and to grow. He is always out there, learning, pushing. And because of John, we’ve all grown as well. Not just musically, but as people."
