This pretty well defines “f*cking useless”

Looks to me like the Italians are getting gypped by their scientists–but maybe it’s just "an Italian thang":

Enzo Boschi [head of the National Geophysics Institute] said the real problem for Italy was a long-standing failure
to take proper precautions despite a history of tragic quakes.
"We have earthquakes but then we forget and do nothing. It’s
not in our culture to take precautions or build in an appropriate way
in areas where there could be strong earthquakes
," he said. [my emphasis]

What a bunch of dorks. Unfortunately, things have become so ridiculous, I expect Gov Schwarzenegger to import some of these Italian do-nothings as technical assistants in California real soon now.
