    yeah, me neither. FWIW I have never been on a boat where the captain was anything less than a complete professional. But I have seen plenty of people over react to both superstition and religion, to the point where people have been killed, and to be honest I am just sick of the stupidity of people. It is time to grow up, stop believing fairy tales and live in the real world, and treat all people like human beings, and treat all life with the proper amount of respect.

    What Lawyer is going to bring a case against a Dive Boat Captain over a banana? Every Judge is this country will throw you out of court.

    His was thrown out too, wasn't it? I'm sure a Texas Grand Jury would not bill a banana theft or assault case from the worst of the story in post 1, but if it did find a way to court - some Texas judges might impose Contempt jail time. They can be mean that way.

    The D.C. administrative law judge who sued his neighborhood dry cleaners for $54 million over a pair of lost pants found out yesterday what he's going to get.

    Nothing.

    how do you push a boat?

    also, i've never heard of this superstition, but it's pretty interesting.
