Thanks for finishing my thought. I was interrupted in the middle of writing my comment but I guess hubski automatically 'contributes' it after a while? That's an unfortunate feature.

You've got a good point. I always read it as both, 'what attention to detail AND what an asshole'.

I was on a jury in 2006 for a domestic abuse case. They intervewed the jurors, dismissed one I think, and then accepted that replacement. The selection took about an hour. For this Tsarnaev case they interviewed 256 people which is insane. At that rate I would guess you get both bogged down by the sheer number of people, but also by the minutiae of each persons differences thus leaving a larger hole of subject matter for the other side to fit an appeal into. I think peer selection still has a place in the process but it sounds like in this case they were doomed from the start.

No kidding. I was even thinking - haven't I already seen them do this once? Either way, it's still cool to see.

When I sold all of my pedals the only one I couldn't part with was The Rat. It sits on my work desk.
