I'm curious if any jurors ever came out and said they genuinely regret their jury vote after seeing the fully edited season with all the confessionals? (Not including the finalists who were found to be reprehensible outside of the game)
This thought is stuck in my head so wanted to make a post, as have been rewatching older seasons and I dread returning to a newer season with the open forum discussions.
I feel like the forum encourages group think and discards players’ singular storylines and personal connection to the game. It seems to discourage players for setting their own criteria as to how they vote, which I feel is the most fascinating part of the game and the hardest to predict as a player playing to win. Nowadays it feels like Jeff lays out the criteria for a best game and tells the jury what criteria they must follow.
I get why production does it; it encourages big movez winners and thus encouraging people to play that way throughout the season for better tv but it often can just feel so blah. I can feel it already starting to provide us with similar ish winners.
"Aubry had Joe the whole game. That amounts to Tai's extra vote advantage to me. I couldn't rationalize giving her a million based on having that advantage the whole game" -Scot
How does FIRMLY gaining the trust of another castaway make your win any less deserving, hell that just makes it more deserving.
I'd be able to handle his vote much better if he just said he didn't like her, so he voted Michelle, this is the biggest load of Bull lmao.
I was summoned for the first time this week and if it weren't for COVID I wouldn't mind going, but with the current state of the virus in LA I don't feel remotely comfortable sitting in a courtroom with strangers next month. I know I can ask to have it pushed for 30 - 90 days but I don't know if that's enough time for me to feel comfortable going in. Is that enough of a reason to ask to be excused?
Hi guys, I got summoned to jury duty on February 1st, and I’ve tried submitted excusal requests due to childcare (both online and over the phone) as I take care of my boyfriends nephew (7 years old) from 9-5 MWTR and 9-noon on Fridays. My requests keep getting denied but we really don’t have anyone who can watch him, and we don’t want to hire any random babysitter right now because of covid. Do I have any options? What would happen if I skipped out on jury duty? I know that’s illegal but it’s the only thing I think will work at this point :(
Think of how often the biggest jury threat in the house is cut at exactly F3. Lets go through each season that happened.
Big Brother 2- Monica
Big Brother 3- Jason
Big Brother 4- Robert
Big Brother 5- Diane
Big Brother 6- Janelle
Big Brother 11- Kevin
Big Brother 14- Danielle
Big Brother 17- Vanessa
Big Brother 19- Christmas
Big Brother 20- JC
Big Brother 21- Nicole A
Big Brother 22- Nicole F
So 12 seasons out of 21 the biggest jury threat in the whole house made it to F3 but got cut. Amazing stat.

Who, exactly, is doing this at Wizards of the Coast?
Why are they doing this? Is it because D&D 6th edition is planned to come out in 2022 to align with the new D&D movie and they want to clear the decks?
How many other companies are experiencing this with Wizards of the Coast?
The grand jury members saw all of the evidence, including evidence that has not been released to the public. If the Ramseys are innocent, why did the grand jury members vote to indict them?
I know responses are going to mention the “touch DNA”, but I just don’t buy that touch DNA exonerates anyone. There are many reasons to explain how someone’s cells could end up at the crime scene, despite them having absolutely nothing to do with it. Examples: the store clerk who handled the gloves that the “intruder” wore, the dry cleaners who handled the “intruder’s” jacket, anyone who may have handled the rope at the hardware store, skin cells on the floor of any restroom that those long johns may have come in contact with, etc.
If the Ramseys are innocent, why did an impartial jury of Colorado citizens (who were witness to evidence that we don’t even know about) vote to indict them?
Was just reading through the VoirDire Day 1 interviews with the jurors. What I noticed was the overwhelming amount of jurors or potentials that thought he was probably guilty.
Try and use your Ctrl-f and search "guilty" it is amazing the prejudice you see. The presser and criminal complaint, authored and performed by Ken Kratz, reached far and wide and was repeated over and over.

##1. Do you think Kaguya-sama significantly reinvents the romcom formula? If not, does it manage to set itself apart from other romcoms?
###Familiar formula with brilliant execution
There is an interview with Aka Akasaka, the author of Kaguya-sama, where he stated that he was surprised that so many people were claiming that his work had such a unique concept. He was quite shocked that it hadn't been done before. Kaguya-sama doesn't reinvent the romcom formula in any significant way, nor does it need to. A romcom that wishes to set itself apart would attempt to subvert the viewer's expectations, but Kaguya-sama takes elements that romcom fans are familiar with and turns them up to eleven while being self-aware in doing so. So while Kaguya-sama isn't a particularly unique take on the genre, it's just a solid romcom with a thoughtful story and likable characters. Visually engaging skits allow the show to branch out from its formula and develop the supporting cast. Each character has defining personality traits leading to some well-timed jokes, great reactions and fun character dynamics. The dialogue is sharp, the mind games are entertaining, and the mix of mostly episodic vignettes with plenty of nods and callbacks to previous skits make for a cohesive and entertaining story of adolescent love. Season 2 in particular shifts further away from the unique hook that Sea... keep reading on reddit ➡
We need to push jury nullification as far and wide as we can. Anyone arrested or charged with arbitrary gun crimes (SBR's, magazine bans, "assault weapons" bans, ect) should result in jury nullification. Anyone with any ability to reach out to gun channels to push this message should. The best part? If the gun community starts acquitting every tyrannical gun crime, the media has its hands tied. If they report on pro gun patriots using jury nullification, they simply spread jury nullification to the rest of the population. Now everyone will know. Fuck boating accidents. Make these tyrants keep losing in court.
EDIT: Thank you everyone for your advice it has been very useful! I called the HM Courts and Tribunal Service and explained my situation. They couldn't understand why I had been rejected so it seems that there was a mistake somewhere... I still have to send the appeal email but they said that it should be accepted.
By the way I completely agree with the people who said I was complicating things by adding more details - my initial request to be excused was simple so I thought that maybe they just needed more details.
I will update myself on the electoral register and hopefully that should avoid this situation in the future while I am overseas.
Anyway, thankfully it all just seems to be down to human error. It did seem very odd when I was rejected. If people want I can post an update once I hear back from the appeal.
Again thank you so much for commenting, I hope everyone stays safe and well.
I asked to be excused from jury duty as I am currently in Australia and was rejected. I told them that I am currently in Australia on a working holiday visa, and that my 2nd year visa ends 4th February 2022, at which point I will return to the UK. I don't really see how they could reject it when I am on the other side of the world, particularly during a global pandemic, it's not like I'm just going to give up my visa to fly back for jury duty. I am appealing, for the appeal I've pretty much written the same, I'm in Australia, my visa ends next year, and I am going to attach my visas as proof. I haven't sent it yet as I would like advice if there's any extra info that I could give? Shall I write that I will not fly home before my visa ends due to the pandemic?
Edit: I normally live in England, so that would be where the court is based
Okay, so I installed a kitchen chimney about 6 months ago . And the outlet pipe faces by neighbours balcony. Our apartment maintained 3 feet distance but his balcony is smack on the border wall.
He approached me a while a ago and very quickly mentioned that he needs me to point my outlet pipe upwards because he get the smell from my kitchen.
I wondered what to do, because pointing it up would mean when it rains ,the water would flow in.
So I left it , he apparently got some guys to turn the pipe without my knowledge. I was on the terrace one day and noticed it pointing up. So I knew it was him.
I went over to him and asked him why he would do that without telling me, to which he immediately gets mad and says 'you want to talk about property? I'll screw your happiness, get away from me' .
I tell him to talk normally and be a gentleman, he gets more furious and points to my car park and says he's going to call the corporation and remove my car gate, because it extends to the foothpath by 1.5 feet.
He was extremely rude and treated me like garbage. He was really rude.
What do I do? Will the BBMP fine me? He's rich and powerful so he can actually 'screw my happiness' .
Update - a lot of people are blaming me for being the ignoring kind. I didn't ignore, ignoring would mean have knowledge of the issue and doing nothing, I forgot about him mentioning it. Aren't we all supposed to have the 3 feet gap between houses? My other neighbour has it, but this guy built an extended balcony using up the 3 feet.
Besides who says 'Ill screw your happiness' ? The last time I heard it was when I was playing football in school age 14.
