Thread: Oh HAIL NO!!!!
#1 Oh HAIL NO!!!!08-07-2008, 02:58 AMToilet rained giant hailstones to fill building
An Austrian man is demanding substantial damages after he was blasted off the toilet when hundreds of thousands of hail stones exploded out of it.
Martin Bierbauer said: "I heard the pipes rumbling a bit, and suddenly hailstones the size of golf balls started exploding out of the toilet like it was a popcorn machine.
"There was an avalanche of ice that quickly filled the toilet, then the entire flat, and eventually the entire building."
"I ran down the stairs with the hailstones following me, and other residents did the same."
Another resident, Silvia Streit, said: "I grabbed a board and put it over the toilet, but the pressure was so great, I ended up sitting on the board as the hail flowed through the flat and down the stairs."

Gotta hate that Global Warming...
I wonder how this man will fare, demanding substantial damages...
Mother Nature is not known for paying out on claims like this.
Then again... he is demanding substantial damages... seems to me that he has already received it! Maybe he should demand substantial repairs! :DSocial Order at the expense of Liberty is hardly a bargain - Marquis de Sade

If Austria's sewer system has always been this susceptible to hail storms, perhaps we now know how yodeling got its origins.
