Only in America....

Reading http://www.fark.com I came across the folllowing news:


It's nice to see that perhaps somebody will profit from the deaths of thousands.
We expect a hearing within 30 days," Austrian lawyer Gerhard Podovsovnik told Reuters.

"We don't earn any money on the lawsuit. We want to help people," he said. "We are suing to get information."

To get information? What do they think we're on. I don't see how they can possibly have a legal leg to stand on here, none of the plaintiffs have any direct responsibility for the lack of earthquake warnings. Earthquake prediction is, and remains an incredibly tricky science, and how anyone can expect a scientific station in a different ocean to provide completely accurate tsunami prediction is beyond me.
