That's a good idea. I kinda want to find this story now.
I am an American Christian male with an interest in a variety of topics, like SF, classic rock, guns, space travel, military history, and video games (Nintendo/retro). Franchises I like include Star Wars, Star Trek, and Transformers.

Who are they going to sue? God or the rain?

Now if you dont post links to a story like that, we will say nasty things about you behind your back.

The question of suing the rain, sky or Noah suing himself reminds me of the time I visited A&E, years ago now, after I'd tripped over the cat and badly sprained my wrist (I thought it might be broken).

The next day, I got a call from one of these "no-win-no-fee" firms (God knows how they got my number) saying that they understood I'd had an accident and they wanted to help me sue those responsible.

"Who would I sue?" I replied. "The cat or myself?"

Never heard from them again.

The cat has excellent legal representation.

Sounds like a pretty poor replica.
”All Lives Matter” is at best an ignorant dismissal of people who actually care about lives.
At best.

I might make an actual signature one of these days. But for now, and probably for a long time, you’re stuck with this short, simple, modest sig.
Thank you for clicking on the thing, though.

Kannap sounded a bit dejected, so I decided to cheer him up in my own special way. I am no stranger to disappointment myself and therefore am capable of empathizing with the jaded young man.

Naturally. I've heard that Ruth Bader Ginsberg has gained one life from the cat for previous services. It's why, and bless her, she is able to stay on the Supreme Court.
