nobody expects the spanish inquisition

According to my Torts professor, you can sue the Spanish crown in any negligence action in America. Apparently, since the Spanish crown funded Columbus's voyage to America, and Columbus discovered America, no negligence action would have ever occurred in America if Spain hadn't paid for Columbus to come here in the first place - i.e., the king and queen of Spain were a substantial factor in bringing about any negligent actions ever occurring in America.

(Notwithstanding the Vikings, the French in Florida, the British in Virginia and Massachusetts, the Russians in Alaska and the Pacific Northwest, the indigenous peoples, and the Dutch in New York.)

Whoever decided that it would be a good idea to have a Torts class at 7:45 in the morning was seriously deranged. Too many hypotheticals first thing in the morning. That, and I think my professor feeds on the souls of the innocent.

Screw it. At least the barista at Starbucks made my coffee correctly this morning, so that makes this insanity tolerable.
