News media are reporting that a cannonball fired by the crew of the TV show MythBusters took a series of unfortunate bounces and slammed into a home in Dublin, California.

Now, if I were the homeowner, I'd be pissed.  Earthquakes, fire, floods, tornadoes, and even locusts are to be expected and insured against.  But no-one in the continental United States has had insurance against cannonball damage since 1865 or so.  No way would I just going to write this one off as a "these things happen" and call my insurance agent and drywall guy.

Although, if the MythBusters crew was so to send over Kari to fix the damage, well, then maybe I could see my way clear to not call the lawyers.  What can I say?  I have a weakness for redheads.

Are you kidding? I'd be in worse shape after the Mrs. Saw me, err, "discussing" the situation with Kari. Just platten my house, it doesn't hurt as much.

Apparently they actually had to do something similer not to long ago, but it was while she was pregnant (the producer or whoever it was apparently dragged her around with them for the apologies on the thought that "no one could be angry at a pregnant lady!").

They might have a point. Nothing shuts me down quicker than a woman, especially a pregnant woman, crying. Yes, I'm a sucker to emotional blackmail, but that's how I'm wired.
