Serving Jury Duty

By some strange set of circumstances I've never served on a jury. I think it had to do with school and then frequently moving and updating my address whenever I'd register to vote. In its essence I'm a huge supporter of jury duty. There are only a few things you have to do to be an American: pay taxes, register for the selective service, and jury duty. Our army is volunteer, and you don't even have to vote if you don't want to. Compared to a lot of other countries, it's easy to be American. But this week, I've been called up to serve my country. Friends' jury duty horror stories run the spectrum from what sounds like an awful day at the DMV to sitting in sequestration for weeks. I hope to land somewhere in the middle, I'm happy to serve on a jury, but I'm just wondering what to wear. I hope they don't mind if I dress as Rob Schneider's character from the 1995 movie Judge Dredd.
