Astrologer sues NASA
It seems that The Register has an article, about an astrologer. This astrologer is suing NASA for recklessly endangering the human race, by firing probes at celestial bodies, and therefore altering everyone's fate.

I am amused.

Swings and roundabouts surely.

If some people get a worse fate, others will get a better one. She just has to hope she's on the "up" side. Or may be that is the problem, she's already seen a dark destiny for herself in the newly aligned stars. Of course, could also be utter b*llocks and if you believe that slapping a comet with a probe will ruin your life, then you probably deserve all the misfortune you get.

Yeah, I'm going to sue her for suing nasa, because their alterations of celestial mechanics are actually having a positive influence on my fate.

I seem to recall there was a similar story doing the rounds a couple of months ago (could well be the same one) about a group of people wanting to sue space agencies for altering the 'fate of the universe' by interacting with planets, comets etc.

I reckon they should partition off the southern states of America and keep such people with the creationists and animal rights protestors- seperate from the outside world for their own good.

I can see the defense now.

"So you claim to be able to predict the future based on the position of Celestial bodies?"

"Yes"

"So you should have been able to predict this event and it's effects and factor them into your future predictions?"

"No"

"So you can't predict events based on the orbits of celestial bodies?"

"But..."

"Yes or no"

:)

What made me giggle was the Google ads accompanying said Reg article... meteorite sales, Vedic astrology... all good wholesome things you'd connect with a reputable IT journo site.
