Just tell them you're rassist
Oh wow I remember that story.
My theory: in jury selection, on purpose try to act as if you are either the smartest or dumbest person on the jury. Then one side will want you off. Which will you choose?

What is happiness? The feeling that power is growing, that resistance is overcome.--Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
Yeah, I think the guy ended up pleading out after a jury had been selected.
It was an awful story and I don't know how they could have picked a jury to give him a fair trial.
Happy days are here again!!!!
No shit, I have that ish too. I doubt I get selected, but it's still a pain to be there at 8:30 AM.
That or scream your NWO shat..
Damn, 32 and this is first time.
F civic duties and I never vote
Make yourself out to be a staunch member of one party, but don't do so obviously. Be sneakier than Dave Chapelle, but inquire into the race/religion of the accused/victim.
Alternatively, stay up until 4 the night before, come in without showering, dressed like crap, and just be exhausted/disinterested the whole time.

Dude, that sucks.
You have to attend. In my area, if you don't show up to jury duty, they'll send a deputy over to your house. Not even kidding.
In ATL, there are way too many people who don't have current addresses for them to waste their time. Sadly North Fulton is discriminated against.
Those are actually very good advice.
If you don't want to be selected for jury duty, you have to give them the vibe that you're a complete weirdo during the interview, but you have to do it in a very subtle manner. If you make it obvious that you're trying not to get selected, they can arrest you for contempt of court.
Edit: Regarding the last part you wrote, you have to come in dressed business casual. Otherwise, they kick you out and assign you a later date.

I quit voting when Gore won the popular vote, you know, OUR votes but lost the election bc the House Reps choose our President.. After that, I said screw voting if our votes don't mean crap.
Disclaimer: I did not vote for Gore.. I believe I voted for Ross Peroit
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
Honestly, I'm not sure I believe any juries are really all that "fair." Good in principle, but we're human after all.
Tell 'em you know all about the court system, and all the BS tricks the attorneys have up their sleeve. They'll either think you're delusional and too idiotic to be on a jury, or think you're actually smart enough to spot their BS, and be too smart for a jury. Brag about your college education if you have one.

That's funny, but I think you can get in trouble for that.
This is what you do, real talk: Tell the person(s) interviewing you (the lawyers) that you can immediately tell if someone is guilty or not by looking them in the eye. I guarantee you that you won't be selected.
I don't know whether or not this applies to the OP in particular, but it does amuse me how many people complain that government doesn't represent them, yet many of those same people do everything in their power to avoid capitalizing on the one opportunity they ever get to actually actively participate in government.
Unfortunately, I think I won't ever get to serve on a jury. I've heard they hate having law students or lawyers on juries, and I don't think there's any way to conceal that information about myself without committing perjury. Sad, I'd very much like to serve as a foreperson one day.
Truth. I live in the Alpharetta/John's Creek area and had jury duty several months ago. Had to go all the way down town, during rush hour, for nothing.
Got some quality reading done though.
Step 1. Come in dressed way worse than business casual.
Step 2. Court assigns you to a later date, buying time.
Step 3. Submit an application to 1 law school.
Step 4. Tell the court you are applying to law school a few months later.
