      I haven't to be honest. I personally don't think I would be able to not because I would be biased but I think because it would be such a hard role to pursue.

      Just talk about religious extremity, a step below terrorist thinking, and high enough to cause you to possibly falsely condemn someone. + All the biases you have, and racist beliefs you have - etc etc. Should get you out!

      Note: none of it has to be true.

      I haven't done it before and am not sure that I would want to. With my luck, I'd get stuck with a case that would go on for days and days.

      It's strange that my sister has been called up 3 times and all before she was 25!

      had it last summer, it was sweet and sour. the sour being I had to bee there by 8, had to watch a boring video of people paid to act like they enjoyed jury duty and then sit for a hour only to have the case dismissed. But the sweet part was I still had the whole day plus being off from work with pay :D

      I've never had to do it and don't want too ever. My religion does not get involved in political issues and also I don't want to have anything on my conscience.
