Waiting for a jury verdict is one of the greatest anxieties on earth. Waiting on the verdict overnight is tortuous. Waiting on it overnight and knowing that it will be a mistrial if they don't get a verdict by a certain time because a juror had a prior commitment that she cannot get out of is downright hell.
I thought I'd try to post something thought provoking about how much I enjoy jury selection and speaking to people, but it turns out I am unable to focus on anything requiring brainwaves while the jury is deliberating. Since my thoughts are tangled and incoherent right now, I thought I'd just let Jerry Seinfeld explain the irrationalities of the fear of public speaking.
