    A shout out to Judge Judy: https://www.gocomics.com/thegrizzwells/2019/04/24 For some reason, I can't do this with the insert other media function.

    I really enjoyed today's new towing case. The plaintiff was laughably stupid, but the great part was the tow guy. Not a likely GQ model but he was looking pretty spiffy. More importantly, he had EVERY piece of paper he needed! He had the paper to show that the police directed him to tow, the signed sheet from the actual tow truck driver documenting the pick up (and noting that there was no plate on the car), the paperwork to show authority to take over the car and dispose of it, the return receipts of the two (count them, two) registered letters he sent to the address he was given by DMV (or police?) for the owner of the car (which turned out to be the plaintiff's parents house), and the correct paperwork to place a lien against the owner. He even properly stopped adding storage fees when the car was junked! I suspect that JM wanted to give him a kiss on the forehead at the end.

    Actually, I would use the word incredible, in the exact literal meaning.

    The big problem with all of these miracle remedies is that people are desperate and not only buy them but stop any other coventional (and generally shown effective to at least some extent) treatment that may be helping, or at least extending life.

    See, that's where you made your mistake. You'll never make it as a litigant.

    Great, I just typed a long response and it all disappeared. To recap, the defendant was let off far too easily for his negligent discharge that almost killed a neighbor. He said that he had never owned a gun before and he was trying out (i.e., playing with) a gun he was thinking about buying. He obviously never took any basic firearm safety course, he admitted he pulled the trigger but thought the safety was on (and apparently fired THREE shots!). To do this without ensuring there was not a round chambered was unbelievably negligent, if you are testing (where you might do this) you absolutely check the chamber and make sure there is no live ammo in the room. At the end, he said that he decided that he would never own a gun, good decision, he is a complete idiot. The judges were far to easy on him, they should have skinned him alive.

    Now, now, they are only about 144 months which is not the rest of their life for these stupid youngsters but might be beyond the rest of my life (I'm old).

    Yeah, cows are OK but really stupid. It seems unfair given that they live really boring lives that when they get pregnant it is usually by artificial insemination so they don't even get the (presumably) fun part of reproducing.

    Same here, I have been doing stuffed burgers (with cheese, peppers, onions, garlic) for at least twenty years. And I am not a chef, or even a serious foodie.However I was a stoner for a few years, and munchies can inspire you.

    Well, it is possible to do something like this if you know what you are doing (which leaves the Brown clowns out). This is actually a little ways from my house, but haven't been there yet. https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/florida/converted-shipping-container-fl-restaurant/

    Yeah, that guy was a real asshole, he told the judge that he couldn't put the muzzle/control on the dog because he was handicapped, he was bitten by a rattlesnake and couldn't use his left hand. However, shortly after that he could use that crippled hand to pick his nose and to handle and manipulate several sheets of paper. What a lying jerk!

    Yeah, but if the cray-cray defendant actually had pictures of cats in their neighborhood that looked like her cat (as she claimed she had) instead of going on line and getting one generic black and white cat picture, she might have done better.

    That dumb ass if he doesn't clean up his act is going to shot dead. The grandfather would have had every reason and right to use deadly force to protect his granddaughter.

    Today's new case was geezer versus geezer with the addition of a daughter. I enjoyed this one, the basic complaint was not novel but the details were more interesting than usual. (Just for the record, I am well into geezerhood myself). It turned around from my initial impression as we heard more and more about (and from) the plaintiff daughter. JJ got her pegged pretty well, she was sort of cray-cray and really an obnoxious jerk. Arrested and convicted (with a plea bargain admission of guilt) for using a boom box to harass neighbor loudly enough that the police on the scene took action against her. I really believe she is a shit-stirrer, I wonder if the geezers would be able to get along without her in the mix. Outcome: plaintiff gets one dollar for defendant's trespassing, defendant gets $3,000 for plaintiff's harassment. P.S. Not very fond of JJ's new hair myself.

    So what's the problem? Many of the litigants we see on these shows (not representative of the general population) would see nothing unusual about this. When COPS did a local show (ended quickly, we weren't exciting enough) they were at a DUI checkpoint and arresting a guy who was visably drunk, turned out he had NINE previous DUI convictions! He was only in his thirties, why in the hell was he not in jail or prison?

    Apparently, this was a consistent continuation of her career prior to that. Sometimes you have to realize that YOU are the problem.

    Actually, he called it compressed cardboard. I had wood laminate for ten years, it was good looking, very durable, but had to be replaced after a hurricane resulted in flooding the floor, something that laminate does not take well. Harvey again made a complete ass of himself outside, asking a young lady with a five pound dog if her dog could make holes in wood flooring, not quite the same as an active 80-100 pound dog. Several of the pictures did show the laminate raising up (and stained) on the ends of some boards; the only way I ever saw that was with water damage so I believe that the flooring was ruined. Unless the plaintiff had some proof of the place leaking, I think it is more likely than not that the plaintiff damaged, it either by letting his dog piss on the floor a lot or spilling liquids and not cleaning it up. Again, we see a so-called "service dog" that is not trained and not controlled by its owner.

    Not necessarily intelligence, but lack of familiarity with american laws and rental common practices, difficulty in explaining their complaints, and general discomfort in confidently asserting their rights in an unfamiliar culture.

    The blonde braids with long dark roots annoyed me, the braids themselves not at all

    The plaintiff on the ancient VHS/DVD player repair kept repeating that when he got it back, he found out that the DVD part would no longer play and record. He was very clear that he was complaining about the DVD part not recording. I never saw a combined VHS/DVD player that could record DVDs, I am fairly sure that they never made them, the combined VHS/DVD machines were an awful idea and didn't stick around long. If he wants to burn DVDs he needs more than a DVD player, but he seemed like someone who just won't listen to anything he doesn't want to hear.

    Well, actually most flights follow a straight line on a globe, it only looks like a curved path based on mercator projections, the shortest routes are along the great circle routes.. There are also prevailing winds so that airlines choose the route that is the most economically vialble. But JJ is still completely wrong on her analysis based on simple geometry.
