I see the Italians have convicted six scientists for failing to predict an earthquake?
This could have some very interesting implications?
The next time there is a heavy snowfall and I am cut off without vital supplies such as whiskey and baccy, I can sue the arse off the weather forecasters? They must have seen the weather coming yet they only forecast a drop of sleet?
The next time I have a prang in the car I can have all of AA Roadwatch in the dock? They must have been able to predict the state of traffic at that time but just kept the information to themselves?
Or maybe all scientists are now going to live in fear of incarceration so we are going to have daily warnings of impending earthquakes, eruptions and tsunamis? In which I can sue them for the constant irritation and inconvenience when they are proved wrong?
Interesting times lie ahead.
