Just because try hard as it may, the Chairman's printer simply can't issue infinite electronic equivalents of the 79 proton element, newspapers with a circulation of 435,000 (same as the Chicago Tribune) on this side of the Ganges will hardly ever be allowed to show the following anti-patriotic advertisement.

NO! But they do have Aryans! And the funny thing about that (Cultural bias against skin color) is on various indian channels that have enormous followings for Bollywood movies, you will see commercials (backed by Hindustan Unilever) for a whole mass of womens products to WHITEN their skin. Dark skin means you work outside and are a laborer, light skin means you DON'T work outside and come from a good family. And the women are HOT!!!

You know why Indian girls that emigrate to the U.S. have that dot?  Because when you marry them and consumate the marriage you get to rub it off and see if you won a Motel 6 or a 7-11..  I do love anti- PC humor..  Lets hear some honky jokes..

You should never fill those things out. As you discovered, they contain a legal threat.

If you really want to confuse them (as I found out once), show up for "duty" anyway. They spent well over half an hour trying to figure out why I wasn't in their database, until I finally told them.

Later, I got kicked out of the "Juror #8" chair for refusing to obey, in advance, any orders the judge might fancy coming up with.

Nope, sorry I'm not going to swear absolute obedience to any person, let alone a professional criminal.

i got forms from the court to fill out a few years ago. it was all for jury duty. they wanted to know all kinds of things such as who i live with, where i live, phone number,, etc. etc. etc. i wrote a letter back to the judge indicating i refused to fill out the forms. the whole time i kept thinking he would probably lock me up for contempt. his baliff later talked to me and said that the judge was actually looking into the jury questioneer form and for lack of a better term the legitamicy of it. i was pleasantly surprised. basically i didnt fill out any of the forms, never had to appear in court and never got called to sit on the jury. things do work out sometimes even though you fear the worst.

Good for you, N/A.

It is pretty appalling to show up for jury duty and be instructed by the judge that you must agree to everything he/she instructs. If that is how it is supposed to be, what is the point of a jury of your peers?

So wrong.

If I remember correctly, they call that a "wheatish" complexion.  I only lived there for a little while, and that was in the early 90's.  Back then, they still aspired to keep girls chunky too.

High value is placed on very pale complexions there.
