The Sovereign State Of Oklahom...

"On Tuesday, some of Italy's top scientists resigned from the government's disaster agency to protest the manslaughter conviction of seven geological experts for failing to predict the devastating earthquake in L'Aquila in 2009. As we noted yesterday, scientists across the world were appalled at the idea of holding scientists criminally responsible for failing to accurately predict the severity of future earthquakes, something that is notoriously difficult to do. Now the Italian government will have fewer scientists to call on to handle disasters."

I thought some of our courts had made some pretty dumb decisions, but the Italian court just took over as the top morons on the planet.

It's hard to believe that the KKK still exists; but then again, Neonazi's have made a comeback. frown

yes, DeeQ, really...sunday night she called 911, said she was at a park in Winnsboro, LA, three men wearing white hoods or white hoodies (story kept changing) accosted her, called her racial slurs, poured lighter fluid on her, and lit her on fire. Wrote racial slogans on her car, and left. She claims to have extinguished the flames with water from a water fountain, then called 911. Had 3rd degree burns over 60% of her body...police started investigating, said monday the story was changing by the woman, not adding up...then yesterday she admitted she did it herself...

so, back to the original post...if they had predicted it was going to be stronger, and people still died, they would be safe? Better yet, what if they predicted stronger, people fled in fear, and it was minor? Would they now be guilty of inciting pandemonium?

Of course, this is the same country that said you can't convict a man of rape if the woman was wearing tight fitting jeans...because tight fitting jeans require assistance for removal...

Sounds like the weather forecasters here - they predict the worst possible scenario for every snowstorm/hurricaine/etc. Then they wonder why people don't listen when it really is a bad storm.

crazy

This from the same country whose most notorious landmark is a building that was built horribly crooked.

Not surprised.

So I hope they go after the manmade climate change scientists and movie stars soon. Is Manhattan under water yet?

crazy





Our weather forecasters are just as bad. If So Cal gets 1/100 inch of rain, every weather report starts out with "Storm Watch [insert year]!" crazy

of course, if So Cal gets more than 1/100 inch of rain, we get landslides/mudslides. smirk

"After all he [Al Gore] claimed he invented the Internet. But if he's so smart, how come every Internet address begins with 'Dubya'?" - George W. Bush

...on a more serious note... you have to give Al Gore credit, the sole reason he created the internet is so he could better spread the message about Manbearpig.
