lol! Ark encounter is suing its' insurance company

FOR NOT COVERING FLOOD DAMAGE!
https://www.courier-journal.com/story/news/2019/05/24/ark-encounter-owners-sue-over-rain-damage/1220627001/?fbclid=IwAR3ML6nati5uOlXaQrYZP2Eq4-791gKZEIxb73LNGsOGol3pfDzbkLbZKWc


The owner of the life-size replica of Noah’s Ark in Northern Kentucky has sued its insurers for refusing to cover, of all things … rain damage.

Ark Encounter, which unveiled the 510-foot-long model in 2016, says that heavy rains in 2017 and 2018 caused a landslide on its access road, and its five insurance carriers refused to cover nearly $1 million in damages.


I don't think I can laugh any harder without fracturing a rib.

32. There's a good Robert Plant song

With that line "you were pumping iron as I was pumping irony..."

Ironically for this group, the song is called "Heaven Knows"

5. The outside front side that you approach

Is looking pretty weathered. It's like Ham didn't want to pay for maybe... $20K? for the Thompson Water Seal and the labor to coat it every five years.

Also, wouldn't it be great if their insurance didn't cover, "Acts of God?"

"Acts of God."

Maybe they can just pray away the damage?

9. I'm only surprised that they haven't figured out

a way to profit off the landslide and flood as their newest amusement park attraction demonstrating the awesomeness of their mighty gawd.

Surely ticket sales would go through the roof as visitors came to see little green plastic dinosaurs floating in the muddy waters and hobnobbing with plaster figurines left over from the annual nativity scene.

13. I went all 4 years of high school to a fundie baptist church school

The only teacher I had who wasn't related to the pastor and actually had a degree in education was my English teacher. Thank FSM I picked up a thing or two from her. Don't ask me to algebra though.

23. It is not correct.


There are two cases for "its" and the apostrophe does not come after.

1) "it's": the contraction for "it is".

2) "its": the contraction for possession. I remember this by saying to myself that the 's' is closer to the 'it'. The newspaper article got it right.

There are two situations, not related to "it's" where the apostrophe comes after.

A) Where the possessing noun is plural. Ex.: "The companies' industry sector failed."

B) Where the noun ends in 's'. Ex.: "Jesus' socialism does not have Republican approval."

Neither of those apply to the OP.

31. Well then Mrs. Batchelor has some splainin to do

I coulda swore I remembered possession its being ok either way - with or without the apostrophe.


Then again, at christian school they always screw up possession.

But at least I never misuse "it is". It's easy to get right.

If you do end up fracturing a rib, you could use half of it to create a gender-appropriate companion to take care of you while you heal!

37. I saw a video...

Made by The Thinking Atheist where he went to ark encounter. And it looks like they didn't use anything to seal the wood at all. So I think the insurers will win.
