"5 minutes after your birth, they decide your name, nationality and religion and you spend the rest of your life defending somethings you didn't choose."

Loved reading this, on the Internet from laughingcolours.com

theoretically, name/nationality/religion actually could be reset later on if one insists. we really have to leave our sex, race and eventual appearance to a process of total coincidence.

Your description reminds me of something. How many things are decided by ourselves? How many choices are made by our own? It is really important to have our own thinking or ideas. It proves a person's experience, maturity,ability and so on.

    Archer_1: Claiming to be stupid won't be an extenuating excuse in any court of law. Clinically verified mental impairment is.
    While I agree that it may not be so technically, it is still done.. either to plead for a lighter sentence or for public image or even when corrupt judiciary itself takes such pleas into account without acknowledging it formally... We see this in human nature all around the world. One can see examples from Vietnam, to Iraq to South Africa or wherever.. Known evil characters are never even prosecuted often. continues to this day.
