1 post
Did you know that the Supreme Court only hears about 80 cases out of the thousands that petition every year to be heard? Many of the cases, decisions, and even judges throughout the history of this high court have been fascinating, and some even controversial. This book infuses fun and interest into this common social studies topic through cool factoids and vivid photography on every page. Carefully researched by a trained historian for maximum accuracy, even the most reluctant reader will find this supplement to the curriculum entertaining and engaging.

“The United States Supreme Court Building has its own basketball court on the top floor that is often referred to as the ‘highest court in the land‘.”

Cinfhen Hahahaha 😂brilliant!! 7mo
LiterRohde @Cinfhen This post was a happy accident. I went from ‘underwater basket weaving‘ to court cases about baskets. Yes, there are court cases about baskets. There are whole agencies to enforce sizes and types of containers for fruit. Who knew. Interesting, but too boring to post. So I was already in the court system and this gem fell into my lap. I keep imagining a Flying Circus sketch of judges in black robes and white wigs playing basketball. (edited) 7mo
LiterRohde @Cinfhen I hope you enjoyed that little trip into the depths of my thought process. 😳🤯😬 7mo

LiterRohde @KarenUK Glad you didn‘t run away screaming “Make it stop!” or some such thing. It‘s scary being in my head for even a moment. Think how I feel? 24/7/365. 🤣 (edited) 7mo
KarenUK I cannot stop thinking of a Monty Python sketch now! 😂 7mo
booklover76 Now I am picturing the Justices playing basketball. 😂😂 Robes flying everywhere. Ginsburg taking a foul for elbowing Thomas 7mo
LiterRohde @Cinfhen @KarenUK @booklover76 Take the sketch I described above and mix it with the sped up chases of the Benny Hill show. That‘s what immediately ran through my head. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=VUOe_hLg7Bo (edited) 7mo
