So it would seem that the best way to attack a nuclear sub, is with a tug!

I don't quite see how her alimony is related to her injuries, though.

My impression of alimony is that it is the money paid by an ex-husband to cover what the ex-wife could have been earning had she not been married (as women typically give up or degrade their careers during marriage). In this case the injury (rather than kids etc) stopped her working, but I assume the same principle was applied.

That's a rather strange rule, but then again, I might be influenced by the fact that it is relatively rare in Denmark for women to go part-time when they marry.

Using the excuse of France ordering 2,000 trains that don't fit their stations ( http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-27497727 ) the BBC have released a list of 10 miscalculations - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-27509559
