Don't laugh at the all mighty googoplex!!! It has a googol number of zeros after it!!! And a googol has 100 zeros after it!!! So a googolplex is a big number!!! But not as big as infinity!!!

Did you read the story? It said that some people are making these over the top claims to send a MSG to the US Army Corps of Engineers so that they never again do such lousy work in another city. They made the levies (or is it levy's) that broke and caused all of the water from the storm surge to get into the city. If they would have held then there would have been an entriely different story written and virtually no one in N.O. and the surrounding counties would have been effected. I say more power to them and they deserve to get every penny they can!

You know what I find even more ridiculous than their lawsuit?
The fact that when someone warns of a natural disaster and says to GET OUT OF THE AREA alot of those people didn't quite understand what that meant.

Yeah, and they will, at everybody else's expense. I guess the families of the people who died in the Indianapolis bridge collapse should go ahead and send a msg to! After all, we can always blame disaster like these on human error. Hell, befor we know it, we'll all be self insured wink.gif
