RE: The cabinet of horrors
It almost sounds like the plot of a movie or videogame, but apparently this actually happened.

US soldiers conspired to assassinate the president, already killed two people to cover it up, and stockpiled an enormous quantity of weapons to fight in "the coming race war".

What you need to understand about the apocalypse is that you aren't Mad Max. You're part of the skull pyramid in the background.

Wat dacht je van deze:

"Eindelijk een remedie tegen homoseksualiteit"

Aldus Todd Akin, kandidaat voor de Amerikaanse Senaat:
“Als je vrouwelijke moedermelk gedurende vier weken dagelijks rechtstreeks aan een volwassene mannelijke homoseksueel toedient, dan heb je 94% kans om definitief te genezen van homoseksuele perversiteiten.”

Oja, kijk ook even hoe hij denkt lesbiennes te genezen...

Women who go to bars and get sexually assaulted really have themselves to blame.

According to an Arizona judge (a female one too).

What you need to understand about the apocalypse is that you aren't Mad Max. You're part of the skull pyramid in the background.

Yup, totally retarded, but does this mean we can sue anyone for being "falsely reassuring"? I'm pretty sure scientists aren't very high on the list of people who issue such statements...

You say prosecuted, but it looks like they've already been convicted, mandatory appeal or no.

I don't really get how a case can be made for 'not predicting an earthquake accurately' or how a judge would favor the prosecution like this. Maybe the scientists have a horrible lawyer.

Either way, this makes for a very bad precedent. Sad

RE: The cabinet of horrors
A small detail that's not clearly stated by the BBC article:

There had been a string of minor quakes for a while in that area. To investigate if this would continue the government formed a special committee to assess the risk. And the committee's findings were generally reassuring, one week before the quake hit and killed some dudes.

So it's not so much just anybody you can sue for being falsely reassuring, it's experts who are explicitly hired to assess the risk and get it wrong.

Not that this makes it any better. Still a pretty stupid outcome. But, you know, Italy. Their government and courts are pretty infamous. Look up some of the stats at the European Court of Justice, Italy scores bad.

Though I agree with you for the most part, Arik, I think 'some dudes' is a massive understatement, given that we're talking about 300+ people dying.

Het is in ieder geval een heel erg ingewikkelde zaak, al lijkt het er erg op dat government official Bernardo de Bernardinis aannames gemaakt heeft die niet in de notulen terug te vinden zijn, en zelfs dat hij nog voor de meeting al besloten had de bewoners gerust te stellen.

Then maybe De Bernardinis is at fault for incorrectly channelling the scientists' ignorance (and they are necessarily ignorant, being that predicting earthquakes is not really possible with any relevant degree of certainty). The scientists themselves have no business at all in that trial.

Merry fucking Christmas, your present is executing gay people in Uganda.

Quote:Merry Christmas? Ugandan Speaker of Parliament promises the draconian anti-gay (Kill the gays) bill will pass before the end of 2012, and will be a Christmas gift for Uganda’s Christian community.

On Monday, November 12, Ugandan Speaker Rebecca Kadaga told The Associated Press that Uganda's anti-gay bill will be passed before the end of 2012 despite vigorous and vocal international criticism of the odious legislation.

Kadaga insists it is what most Ugandans want: Ugandans "are demanding it," she said.

Last Friday Kadaga met with Ugandan anti-gay activists who spoke of "the serious threat" posed by homosexuals to Uganda's children. Some Christian clerics at the meeting in the Ugandan capital, Kampala, asked the speaker to pass the law as "a Christmas gift."

Gay Star News reports the law will broaden the criminalization of same-sex relationships by dividing homosexuality into two categories; aggravated homosexuality and the offense of homosexuality. ‘Aggravated homosexuality’ is defined as gay acts committed by parents or authority figures, HIV-positive people, pedophiles and repeat offenders. If convicted, they will face the death penalty. The ‘offense of homosexuality’ includes same-sex sexual acts or being in a gay relationship, and will be prosecuted by life imprisonment.
