Da Pimp Act

Holy crap, this is one of the most ridiculous lawsuits I've heard of in a while, and being from the Land of Litigiousness, that's saying a lot.

A Russian astrologist who says NASA has altered her horoscope by crashing a spacecraft into a comet is suing the U.S. space agency for damages of $300 million.

"It is obvious that elements of the comet's orbit, and correspondingly the ephemeris, will change after the explosion, which interferes with my astrology work and distorts my horoscope."

Un-fucking-believable, is the first word to come to mind.

P.S. "Da Pimp Act" was a joke stolen from Mystery Science Theater 3000's Summer Blockbuster Preview show, from back in the day.
