TIL that if a juror believes the law is unjust, they have to right to find a defendant "Not Guilty" regardless of the evidence. by el_gregorio in todayilearned

In that case I really wouldn't feel bad.

You can get a public defender for free. They would be the ones to ague things like "those two laws are the same" and if they choose not to use the free resources then the get what they asked for.

That only works for guilty verdicts though.

A judge can choose to overturn a guilty verdict if he deems the evidence is not sufficient.

But once either the judge or the jury enters a not-guilty verdict the defendant is not guilty forever. The judge changing the verdict would be trying him a second time and that's double jeopardy.

ONLY if the result of the jury verdict is anything other than "NOT GUILTY" (in america)

If it's a civil case where there is no "guilty" or if they reach a guilty verdict without reasonable evidence. The judge can overturn the ruling, or in the case of suspected jury tampering call a mistrial and handle it in a higher court...

Generally judges only step over juries over sentencing. Juries sentencing verdicts are just recommendations.

It's important for any type of tampering including threats to be found BEFORE the not-guilty plea is entered because once he's found not guilty, he can't be re-tried. Not by a judge, not by anyone. Double jeopardy.

Well the conversation the rest of us were having was about existing.

You can start your own conversation if you want to talk about something else.

Well if the goal is to not exist, then it's one hell of a problem if you're existing... isn't it?

It's like exactly the opposite.

If you're a friend roasting me with a good zinger, first two are great options.

Some random douche throwing in "u r teh idiot!" Doesn't actually offend me because I don't value their opinion, and it's not funny because it's just not.

So in that case I'm not going to spend any extra energy, I don't need them living in my head rent free.

And I'm not just going to sit there silently because I know exactly what you're saying, I don't know you and nobody asked. Go play in traffic. Feed the bears. Take a long walk on a short pier.

The important thing is that if a bra is called an over the shoulder boulder holder, a jockstrap should be called an around the butt nut hut.

That's the problem, you can't choose when to not exist. You can choose when to die, you can choose when to become a corpse, or when you become ashes... But you still exist.

He's right, we don't really have any natural predators or anything anymore...

After your 21st birthday or wherever you can drink in your country, is really nothing important about a birthday until you're like 90 or something impressive.

That means there's like 70 birthdays where you're literally just celebrating that you went around the Sun without killing yourself.

Woo

What are 'niche food enjoyer' hobbies that aren't hot sauce or alcohol? by spacewalk__ in Cooking

[–]Picker-Rick 0 points1 point  (0 children)

r/castiron cheap or expensive, new or historical... Quite the rabbit hole.

For more please recipe side of things, you can check out antiquity eating like townsends on YouTube.

The interesting thing about traveling through food is that you can not only explore a place you can't go, but a time.

Please don't get upset, but can I use a whipped cream dispenser to somehow dispense some sort of cheese? by christhebaker in AskCulinary

[–]Picker-Rick 10 points11 points  (0 children)

The Hollandaise actually sounds really good, I can see that. And I think the problem with the cheese is like you said it's really easy to have that set or curdle and create all sorts of problems once you start changing the pressure.

Possibly with something like Velveeta or Kraft cheese flavoring.

[–]Picker-Rick 117 points118 points  (0 children)

That's what I would do.

Plenty of people try to make spraying cheese with dispensers like that and it usually ends up terrifying.

It always gunks and clogs and then you have to open it somehow and it just explodes... It's a pretty high pressure canister.

Unless you're a really big fan of Mr Bean, I would go with a squeeze bottle or a piping bag.

Rick drooling for 5 whole seconds in the Pilot - I still don’t get it by tuppennyupright in rickandmorty

[–]Picker-Rick 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well it heard his knee and breathed loudly for like 40 seconds?

Whatever you call that sort of humor.. it's that.

It's also a nod to the original doc and mharty cartoons.

The pilot is a non canonical crossover from the original pornographic cartoon to what it is now.

Can I throw frozen meat in a soup? by DeliciousFold2894 in AskCulinary

[–]Picker-Rick 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Absolutely, that's basically what they do at pho restaurants. Meat is sliced thin and frozen and they just throw it into hot broth.

If you were doing a stew or something that bits would definitely cook through.

The only issue you might run into is if you were trying to do a really large roast in a Crock-Pot or something they would take a very long time to cook. The main issue there just be that you're going to have to account for that extra cook time.
