I've had people tell me that I'd be a great defense attorney.
I'd like to think that's because I make cogent and factual arguments or that I tug at people's heartstrings and force them to look inward and search for the truth.
But in reality, I think it has more to do with the fact that I can sometimes be such a long-winded pain in the ass that judges and juries would rather just let me win so I'd shut up and leave the courtroom.
(always play to your strength!)
But thanks for the thought!
