Once, the Kaiser Wilhelm (yeah, the “bad guy” of World War I) visited a prison, where every inmate was pleading his innocence.

Except one, who just stood there, staring silently at the Kaiser.

— And you? Are you not innocent?

— I am totally guilty, sire.

The Kaiser then turned to the warden and told him:

— Release this man, I will not have this guilty scoundrel corrupt all the innocent men in here!

Speaking of toast, light or scorched?

Go on…

Specifically, what do you think of New-Hampshire that now “allows”* defence lawyers to mention nullification to the jury?

* I “air-quote” it because it is ludicrous that a judge could prevent the defence lawyer from mentionning nullification to the jury. If anyone ought to do that, it’s the judge in the instructions to the jury.

Your thoughts on "airgap viruses"???

(Bonus question: is it true that when you multiply two Mersenne primes, the result is another Mersenne prime?)

I’d even go further and say that any law that was nullified more than 50% in a year should be taken off the books.

Or at least sent to judicial review, or be voted on by the legislature again.
