don't like the weather? sue the bureau!

Without a doubt, everybody follows Don's American suing culture. The latest case is suing UK's weather forecast (Met Office), because the tourism industry wasn't happy with Met Office's medium-term forecasts.

Anyone who did Applied Mathematics would know that weather forecast based on calculating differential equations requires extremely huge computation power to improve the possibility. However, by the end of the day, it is still a "possibility/prediction", not 100% certain. (Definitely, not Don's bible.)

A tourist attraction boss in the UK says he is considering legal action against the Met Office after "a series of overly pessimistic" forecasts he says are threatening to bring the tourist industry to its knees.

Well, if the tourist attraction's law suit wins, the likely outcome is that everybody suffers from having the "medium-term forecast."
