Really amusing. A lot of it doesn’t apply to this part of the world. Yet….
Sounds funny??? Well, this US senator actually filed a case in court sueing God!!! Wow! How is that? Filing a case against the almighty in a system formed by us mere mortals!
PS: I don’t know what amuses me most – That he filed such a case? or that A SENATOR representing the people filed such a case? or that he is STILL A SENATOR after this whole drama? !!!!!
A US judge has thrown out a case against God, ruling that because the defendant has no address, legal papers cannot be served.
The suit was launched by Nebraska state senator Ernie Chambers, who said he might appeal against the ruling.
He sought a permanent injunction to prevent the “death, destruction and terrorisation” caused by God.
Judge Marlon Polk said in his ruling that a plaintiff must have access to the defendant for a case to proceed.
“Given that this court finds that there can never be service effectuated on the named defendant this action will be dismissed with prejudice,” Judge Polk wrote in his ruling.
Mr Chambers cannot refile the suit but may appeal.
‘God knows everything’
Mr Chambers sued God last year. He said God had threatened him and the people of Nebraska and had inflicted “widespread death, destruction and terrorisation of millions upon millions of the Earth’s inhabitants”.
He said he would carefully consider Judge Polk’s ruling before deciding whether to appeal.
The court, Mr Chambers said, had acknowledged the existence of God and “a consequence of that acknowledgement is a recognition of God’s omniscience”.
“Since God knows everything,” he reasoned, “God has notice of this lawsuit.”
Mr Chambers, a state senator for 38 years, said he filed the suit to make the point that “anyone can sue anyone else, even God”.

This is not a fight getting messy. This is deliberate attempt of murder. When would Indian journalism start using the right words in the right place?
They literally destroyed Aarushi’s father in the pune case just as they have done in the past and in this case, they have belittled the seriousness of the crime committed by labeling it as a domestic fued!!!!

BANGALORE: It was a usual fight between a husband and wife, but for Eshwari (24), a resident of Doddabettahalli near Vidyaranyapura, the fight turned out to be a near life threatening experience.
Her husband Srinivas (30), a TV mechanic, always suspected his wife which led to frequent fights.
On Monday, at around 8.30 pm, they got into an argument over the issue and Srinivas attacked her with a chopper, injuring her severely . Eshwari was later admitted to a private hospital where she is recovering . The Yelahanka police have registered a case against Srinivas.
It’s news….. In case you missed itin the news dailies… here it is….!!! Note that this is only for a period of one year. The news item seemed pretty confusing to me. They seem to alternate between ‘I should pay rs. 20/-’ and ‘i need not pay any money’ with each paragraph. I wonder who thought this person journalism!!!!
- Para 1 says - Customers will have to pay a maximum of Rs 20 for withdrawing cash from an ATM

- Para 3 says – RBI also said that banks cannot charge their own customers for ATM usagePara 5 says – a bank will not be able to charge more than Rs 20 for transactions carried
Anyway…. From what I understood….. We will have to pay Rs. 20/- for all atm transactions done in 2008. From March 2009, its all going to be free!!! Is this right??? I am not sure..!!!
NEW DELHI: Customers will have to pay a maximum of Rs 20 for withdrawing cash from an ATM of another bank from March 31, 2008. However, balance inquiries will attract no charge with immediate effect.
The charge for cash withdrawal is only till March 31 next year, after which it will become zero.
