Pull off your clothes,
Throw 'em in the corner
Stay all night,
Stay a little longer
And love me girl

I picked up the Droid Turbo. All I can do is cradle it and marvel its beautiful lines, its ballistic nylon backplate, the pitch slab of its screen.
Cars, women, phones, why am I so enamored by the universe?

Run laps a lot
Pee on the garden
Leap over fences
Cock is a word for rooster
Hen is a type of chicken?
Kit kats are good
Nice chickens don't belong in the

Rewatching old episodes of Criminal Intent I am reminded of this article I once read about how watching all those American tv shows where judges are addressed as "your honor" had made a large number of Germans assume that the (literal) tv translation of that was how you addressed a judge in this country as well. You don't. In German, the correct way of addressing a judge would retranslate back into English as "Mr/Mrs chairperson" or "Mr/Mrs judge".

gavels? I think that's an almost exclusively American thing.
The rules for addressing judges here are very arcane. Traffic commissioners and justices of the peace are "Your Worship", lower court judges are "Your Honour", superior court judges are "My Lord/Lady", and judges in higher courts than that are "Mr./Madam Justice". (Except the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, who is "Madam Chief Justice".)

Also, no jury system. At least no jury of 12 like you have but in some cases 2 civilian layjudges assisting the professional judge as equals (at least theoretically) to form a tribunal of 3 or 3 laymen assisting 2 professional judges for a tribunal of 5, depending on the type of court - and not for a specific case but for a period of 4 or 5 years.
Oh, and no class action law suits.
