So I had something really funny happen in court today and I wanted to tell all my Achaea buddies about it but I realized we don't really have a thread for just OOC talk. There's the funny stuff you find online thread. But this didn't really apply.
So here's my funny story.
Sitting in court, courtroom full of people. Defendant just screamed and cussed at the judge and slammed his fists on the desk the judge told him 10 days for every cuss word. After "fuck you bitch," he was up to fifty days. He goes "Fifty days?! Suck deez nuts!!" Oddly judge didnt give him 10 days for that. So glad that's not my client!
Also, could you explain how contempt of court is justifiable? I mean, I'm cussed at regularly, and I can't just extend people's jail stay. Why is a judge so damn sensitive? Free spech, etc.
Also, booked a guy into jail, old, looked like he came from the show Duck Dynasty. Straight caveman. Had to photograph tattoos. All of them. Including the devil's head that he tattooed, himself, on the head of his penis. He said it's so he can unleash the beast. smdh
Tl:dr: judges OP.
Contempt of court really bugs me as a principle, because it's kind of a descendant of the privilege of nobility, and has no place in this country. I hadn't considered the benefit to judicial economy before though. That makes sense. You definitely would get people, such as myself, who would not behave in court if I didn't feel like I deserved to be there otherwise. The People vs. Larry Flynt movie comes to mind.
I knew enough to keep my mouth shut both in jail and in court.
I can never get youtube links to work.
@Sarapis I'm a criminal defense attorney, I'm huge on client's rights and such, but this is one of maybe two times that I've seen contempt, and the dude -was- being belligerent. To be honest, it makes your attorney's job 10X harder.
Well, when I started to mud games, I had really bad English. (even worse than current one. hehe) I was even open dictionary for understand room descriptions. Some time later I learned there is marriage in the game. I start to flirt with a female character in the game. I believe she liked my character too. All I want was creating family! Nothing else. One day we were in a room and we were alone. I wanted to say something nice to her. We used to call women who we love with a cute animal names in Turkey. Bird, cat, pigeon, etc. Heh. I just wanted to say to her "you look like a cat". Somehow I thought there "cat" looks awkward there. I opened my dictionary and looked other meanings of the cat. There were "cat, pussy, feline, kitty". I just remember that pussy was the second line in dictionary. I thought it's the word which I was looking for... and I just said her "you look like a pussy". She slapped me first and then snubbed me. It take almost a year in RL to understand what's going on with her.
I thought it was a really weird request and it was made worse by the fact that my boss had a reputation for being ultra-protective of his wife. There was a rumor going around that he'd thrown a guy off a balcony for giving his wife a foot massage. Now, a foot massage ain't really an innocent thing, but throwing a guy off a balcony is kind of an overreaction I think. It's debatable I guess.
So anyway, I take his wife out, we have a good time, and we go back to her house. So I excuse myself to the bathroom, in the middle of a moral dilemma over whether or not I should give my boss's wife the ol' 3-legged piledriver, and somehow she discovers my drug stash in my coat pocket. So she snorts a massive rail and ends up overdosing, I come out of the bathroom and see her twitching on the couch, I panick cause holy shit, if my boss's wife dies on my watch, its my head on the chopping block y'know?
So I end up calling my drug dealer at like 1am, he's all pissed because I'm talking about drugs and women overdosing over the phone and he's a conspiracy nut, but I'm like fuck this this is an emergency. So I load my boss's wife in my car, haul ass over to my drug dealer's house, he's yelling at me like "what the fuck are you doing bringing her here?" while I'm carrying her drug-addled ass into his house.
We ended up jamming a big ass needle full of adrenaline straight into her heart, and she comes back from the almost-dead, like some kind of heroin addicted Jesus Christ.
Laughs were had all around after that, good times for everyone. True story btw.
p.s. i don't do this stuff anymore
My stories are shroom stories
So me and my friend are in amsterdam and we're just getting fucked up the whole time. Eating shrooms, smoking weed. We were there for the cannibas cup.
So we go to the Zoo and it was awesome but we were shrooming and of course had a little plastic bong in our backpack.
So we are trying to take pictures of us like smoking in public loooking like typical stupid americans smoking in public but without getting caught and getting thrown out the zoo. No biggy.
Eventually we start actually looking at the animals. Cool! Look at the cats... look at the lions... look at these tigers. Neat. So i'm standing there looking at the tigers and my friend she was standing next to me and we're kind blankly zoning out on these tigers.
I notice movement out of me left eye and I turn my head and see my friend standing like 3 exhibits down. I'm like woa! When did she get down there? So theres a like an obsticale up against the railing that for whatever reason I had to step over in order to get to my friend so I just step over, using the railing to balance and walk over to my friend.
It wasn't until I got to my friend that she was like wtf did you just do that for? I ask what are you talking about? she points and I turn and look and see woman in a wheelchair pushed right up against the railing with her dauther behind her guiding her both staring at me.
Of course in our drug induced state we can't help but start laughing so hard we cry. We run off to another part of the zoo (which in reality was probably like 15 seconds away within sight), and start to examine the plaque on a scupture in the zoo pretending to be amazed at it while laughing about what an ass I was to literally step over a wheelchair to get to my friend. It was while we were reading this plaque that we both realized that the plaque was in dutch... neither of us can read dutch... so of course we start laughing more.
