Re: Finding goofs in your tv shows...

Yeah, but people are stupid and think they're detectives, as Greg Cox said. Or they think things must be proved "beyond a shadow of a doubt" when anyone with brains, imagination, and an understanding of the freakiness of reality can usually come up with a far-fetched possibility raising a shadow of a doubt.

I got kicked off a jury 20 years ago for saying I was concerned about the other jurors. When the judge asked if I thought the other jurors might be stupid, I answered, "For all I know, they could all be smart as Einstein. I don't want to take the chance." Now THAT will get you off a jury panel. Feel free to use it.

Have I mentioned I used to have a HUGE problem with a lack of mental filtering of my thoughts? Now reduced in size. Just a problem.
