Hi! I am Jason. This is a personal blog.
That means I post according to my whims, so while I have some consistent likes, you should expect to see any random thing on this blog.
Frequent content: Faberry, Achele, also how much I hate Glee. Lately: obsessed with ouat, sleeping warrior and confused as heck but intrigued by swan queen. basically my fandoms normally have this in common: lesbians
other topics: Buffy, hot womens, Bioware games, Tomb Raider, Skyrim, Adventure Time, cuttlefish, octopuses (of course!), science stuff, and whatever the heck else I want to put on my blog. :-P Just remember: be prepared for anything.
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.
