Pianist facing prison
According to this BBC article, a Spanish musician is facing a prison sentence for playing her piano excessively. Her neighbour is claiming that the continuous noise has caused her severe psychological trauma to the point that she now has such a horror of pianos she cannot even stand seeing them in films.

Anyone else think that this is a slight over-reaction?

Best and worst of Ferdinand .....
Best
Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.

I prefer a South-facing prison.

Damn, I don't like country music, but you don't see me pressing charges against every hillbilly I see.

Just a tad over on the reaction!

8 full hours a day, 5 days a week, for 4 years? mhmm....

We sure Ms. Bosom isn't really Elvira Gulch?

The woman let this go on for four years?

It ended in 2007? It's 2013. WTAF?

How the hell did this even make it to court? If I was the judge I'd slap some kind of frivolous lawsuit penalty on the plaintiff (after I finished laughing of course).

Will she have access to a piano in prison? Undecided

Quote:Prosecutors are also demanding that the 27-year-old be banned from professional piano playing for six months.

Hm.. that's at least an entire concert season gone to waste. And then she'll have to get back into shape - possibly another season. Not to mention a couple years away from the recording studio.

So, someone's predisposed mental illness is to be considered of greater value than another's passionate life work, not to mention the potential loss of a substantial amount of time and invested money in conservatory training.

A spiffy counter suit for career sabotage should even things out. Drinking Beverage Earplugs, anyone?

Looking on the bright side, it's a good thing she didn't play the drums (or worse...the oboe Tongue ) otherwise she might be facing the death penalty rather than just prison time.

If I was the judge, I probably wouldn't be able to laugh.

I think it depends. If we are talking about 2 neighboring apartments with
only a thin wall dividing the two, I can imagine that it could drive you crazy.

For example, the US has used loud Britney Spears music as a form of
torture enhanced interrogation techniques.
