So I have this guilty pleasure right - I love TV shows about highway police. Motorway Cops, Traffic Cops, Highway Patrol, Motorway Patrol…I love them all and I can’t explain it. But what I love most is the comparison between the Australian and New Zealand drivers.

New Zealander: I was speeding? I didn’t even realise officer, thank you for pointing it out. I’m so glad I didn’t hurt anyone. I’ll pay this fine immediately.

Australian: Fuck you, ya fuckin’ pigs! Ya dogs! I wasn’t speeding ya filthy mongrels! I’ll fuckin’ see youse in court ya bastards!

Come on guys, this is a little ridiculous.

Having juries in civil matters is ridiculous anyway, and this just kind of proves it to me. America, what is going on with you guys. Seriously. 

The 7th Amendment is going on with us - it has been construed to require the right to a jury trial in nearly all civil cases. Amendments are kinda hard to change. My 2nd least favorite of the Bill of Rights. 

Don’t even get me started on how ridiculous blind acceptance of the constitution is. Like is anyone considering the fact that these were literally written hundreds of years ago (okay, for us maybe 100ish years ago) and I’m supposed to hold it up as the beacon of all that is right and just and good? No thank you. 

Apple update their terms and conditions all the time and we can’t amend a dusty old document to better reflect the changing society we live in? Come on, man. That thing was written when people were shitting in buckets.

(I was not a very popular law student. Don’t tell me it’s a living, breathing document or I’ll put a bushfire out with your face.)

I can’t explain it, but my love for Justin Timberlake is deep and it’s real and this video never fails to make me laugh.

Note to the Australian media: MH17 is not more of a tragedy just because Australians were on board. It’s a tragedy regardless.
