Yup.

There was a dark article in The Atlantic I believe about sociopathic kids. Not a lot of a "cure" there.

Not strictly legal advice, but close: If you are hypothetically going to get out of prison by hypothetically testifying in another hypothetical case, do not hypothetically brag about this to other inmates.

Hypothetically. It could be legal advice because hypothetical attorneys don't like the hypothetical headaches of having to visit hypothetical clients in the hypothetical trauma ward, which makes representation hypothetically more difficult.

I mean, hypothetically.

Where's that cheese commercial where the kid yells to the TV, "WHAT A DOOFUS!"
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

I can't find the Bloom County strip that sums up my yesterday. Steve Dallas is in court representing some guy, and after he finishes his summation the client goes on a rant that included a threat to the jury that he would shave their cats.

There was a caption about Dallas considering a career change, and the last scene is him looking dejected with the thought bubble: "I could pimp."

My all time favorite (which for all I know is the legal equivalent of "why isn't my computer working? Oh, the power's out" that IT people hear all the time), so apologies if you've heard it a million times-- was the guy accused of robbery who fired his lawyer and did an otherwise fairly competent defense of himself. Problem was he could not get the clerk to budge on his story or identification of him, and remarks, "I should have blown your (expletive) face off" *realizes where he is* "If I'd been there!!"
