Judges, Eh?

Yes, we know, judges really do have a reputation for being slightly other worldly. Referrin to hte Arctic Monkeys as teenyboppers beat combo perhaps. Thing is, the reputation isn't undeserved:

A British judge admitted on Wednesday he was struggling to cope with basic terms like "Web site" in the trial of three men accused of inciting terrorism via the Internet.    

Judge Peter Openshaw broke into the questioning of a witness about a Web forum used by alleged Islamist radicals.


"The trouble is I don't understand the language. I don't really understand what a Web site is," he told a London court during the trial of three men charged under anti-terrorism laws.

The lovely thing about it all is that judges in the UK are actually issued with wifi enabled laptops upon which to do their work.
