Very silly  
"Nine Deaths Blamed on Killer Calif. Storms"

The story isn't really that important (haven't actually read it myself) i was just amused by the headline because it immediatly caused me to think "i guess weather phenomenon don't get due process." You just blame them for one or more deaths and they're instantly "killer" whatever without having to go through the courts or anything.

So i figure this same process can be applied to other inanimate things. (Okay, the weather isn't inanimate (is it?) but same general idea.)

I hearby blame my computer for a death. I don't really know what death, but it could very well have been responsible for some death sometime somewhere. Maybe some of the chemicals leaked out of whatever plant it was constructed in, in whatever part of asia that most likely was, and gave someone cancer and they died. It doesn't really matter though, i'm blaming it, and it doesn't have the recourse of the courts.

Therefore, i have a killer computer :)

That's a headline? Nine deaths? Piffle. Look at those tsunamis and tell me nine deaths is significant.

That was another issue i didn't really bring up, yes. Killer tsunami that kills hundres of thousands of people? Yes. Killer earthquake that kills hundreds of people in a city? Yes. Killer rain that kills around a dozen people over the area of a medium sized state? Not really. Are we next going to have a killer sunny day because lots of people decide to go to the beach and one or two more fatal accidents happen than is normal?
