Hey, seeing as Angie now used inspirtation from the message board in her "Jumping Jason / Speechless Arno" story, how about we come up with some other stuff to inspire her? ;)<P>I'd go first, but I'm sick... *L* There's an idea... Arno gets sick. *Nods* Next! ;)

I never understood why in the US apparently every second citizen is downright lawsuit-happy. Everyone is sueing everyone for every last penny for the most stupid reasons.
About 70% of all lawsuits in the US wouldn't probably even be -accepted- at german courts.<P>*officially declares that he will not sue Angie for the possible use of any stupid story-idea being used that once dug it's way out of his cranked brain*

*LOL* A molting Arno... That would be quite interesting, actually... ;)<P>Anyway, here's an interesting story I picked up yesterday in a newsgroup... Appearently it'a a wellknown story too, but I can't remember names, places, dates, etc, so I'll summarize:
This woman started out as a fanfic writer, but soon became professional. Her books got published, but she never forgot where she came from. She helped aspiring authors by reading their stories and having them published in an anthology thing. She was very available to them, as a courtesy, giving something back to where she came from.
One day a writer wrote her a story with a basic idea that she used in her nearly finished novel. She wrote the writer back, explaining to her the situation.
Now, the husband of this woman was a lawyer. He wrote a note back, demanding that his wife'd be named as a co-author. The publisher did not want to risk a lawsuit under any circumstance and would now not publish the novel.<P>It's sick, really... The writer has stopped being available to other writers, she does not read their stories, she does not help them, because it could hurt her.
I believe somewhere among this there ought to be justice, seeing as the law is involved... Can anyone spot it?

Well, for one, i'd like to defend some americans and say we are NOT all like that no matter what your media tells you, i know more than two people here and none of us have sued anyone. In fact I only know two people who have ever sued PERIOD, and one was a wrongful death and one was theft and fraud that was only asking for what was missing back. yes, i have commented in the past that a lot of ppl here seem to be WAY too litigation happy, trying to get somethign for nothing, but i think it's more that the system is messed up that lets them and the way lawyers know they get commision on teh amount they win that makes most of the trouble. A lot of the ppl who sue usually wouldn't think of it until they are approached by lawyers - ambulance chasers we call them - who are looking for an excuse to get that nice commision.<P>So yes, i agree it's a shame that so many people are getting hurt for stupid things and so many jerks are making my whole darn country look bad and doctors and authors and fast food employees have to worry more about covering their butts instead of doing the best job they can and helping people.
Just be careful with the stereotypes and generalizations or I'll sue you for defemation of character. ;) Just kidding, but i'm getting sick of people in other countries thinking and spreading the word of how bad they've heard we are in chats and emails and stuff when they've never had to live here and put up with it. Not that our media helps. Just remember you are <i>only</i> hearing the spectacular out-of-the-ordinary cases - normal good deeds and simple acts of selflessness and caring just don't make the international news.
And now i'm having trouble making this not sound like i'm insulting or mad at you guys, because i'm not. *hugs* Just i'm tired and sensitive and probably PMSing and getting sick of being an american.<P>Wow, what do you know. That's the only patriotic thought i've had in years.

Mel>*L*....Sooo you think I should move to Cananda instead? ;)<P>But seriously you're right. the media always twist stuff and write the really outrageous things. You should see some of the headlines over here!<P>And yeah I bet all Americans aren't...however the media portrays them *L* I actually have no stereo type for you guys if that makes any sense. And though I've never been there I know lots of really nice american ppl besides which you can't assume a country's worth of ppl based on the eety bity percentage of stuff you hear about *L* (And I can't believe I'm saying that. Who's the person who whines all teh time about where she lives? Hopefully that's a little different ;)) <P>Anyway I'm making no sense but pretty much you're right Mel. *hugs back*..Er....'Being sick of being an american'?! THAT's teh most patriotic thought you've had in years!.....Wow. At least I have the excuse of I just live here ;) But mwaah Americans aren't so bad. At least you seem open to the new and different...;P<P>Uhm..*shuts up* *is well aware she writes nonsense*

I don't think Americans are the way their stereotypes are... heck, you should know how often I defend you guys from exactly such stereotypes... One of the stereotypes is that you all think we live in windmills and wear wooden shoes. How's that for irony? ;)<P>Having said that, the type of cases I'm thinking of would have had a Dutch judge furious over how his time was wasted. But who knows how many American judges have fumed, huh? *l*

Yeah, unless they like to make themselves a bit more famous... But there's juries in AMerica, right? Are they there for these sorts of trials too then? :)<P>BOy did we ever get sidetracked. Angie! Do a legal story! Arno can be a lawyer! ;)

Robert: "Your honour, I insist that my client is innocent of this act. In fact, if he stole that catnip he could be paying me a lot more than 50/50!"
Arno: "I object, your honour!"
Judge: "<Sigh> Why this time, councelor?"
Arno: "The defendant's council is an idiot."
Judge: "Granted."<P>
Now, a maneater... I had to think about the meaning of the word for a while, but... *L* Yeah, it'd be funny, but I kinda suspect that sort of thing isn't what Angie does... ;)<P>Twonk! *L*

Yeah, bad Mel! ;> If Arno comes up with a really good script though I might have a go at drawing it myself ... it's been a long time since I've done that though so it'd probably come out bad but eh, it'd be a right laugh.
