Ridiculous. Sentenced for not predicting earthquake.

Six Italian scientists found guilty of multiple manslaughter for not giving accurate enough information about an earthquake yet to happen.

Maybe they should prosecute all the mediums and fortune tellers for not speaking up about it also!

Quake scientists convicted

We should have no problem with the successful prosecution of the merchant bankers now.

Michael Fish might be worried (1987 Hurricane Storm caused record damage and killed 18 people)

Not quiet true. They were asked if the earth tremors meant that an earthquake was coming and they said no. It was.

Everyone who lives in 'hot spots' or high-risk-areas prone to earthquakes / floods / droughts / tidal waves / volcanic eruptions / famine / pestilence / wars / genocide ... should seriously consider moving to safer spots. (it's no joke if you have to live with the constant threat of unstoppable forces :o[)

Don't see how it is ridiculous.

That is the law in Italy.

They probably think our laws on abortion are just as ridiculous.

Michael Fish has nothing to worry about as UK law is not so ridiculous.

It is the Italian law that I find ridiculous in that it allows this sort of prossecution to take place.

It seems almost medieval, witch hunts come to mind.

How do you cope with Glasgow Celtic and Glasgow Rangers, then?

They tell me Motherwell is quite nice and quiet.

a falsely reassuring statement

i believe that now a precedent has been set that multiple prosecutions shall ensue and all those who profess such sentiments shall be equally guilty.

The threat of that 'little earthquake' has 'fizzled out' ... for a while, Cream.

Re Motherwell:- Motherwell (North Lanarkshire) 'The Mother's well' This former steel-making town in the Clyde Valley takes its name from an ancient well dedicated to the Virgin Mary, the site of which is today marked by a plaque in Ladywell Road.

... How are things in Glockamorra?

fm - when you say 'presumably...' and 'I'm only guessing...' in your last post, you are hedging your bets. Why not start by saying I THINK THAT...?

Spit it out.
