    vegan woman sued her neighbors for barbecuing in their backyard: 'It's deliberate'

    https://www.azcentral.com/story/news...ia/2196077001/

    A vegan woman has filed a suit against her neighbors in the Australian supreme court after complaining about the smell of meat and fish emanating from their barbecues.
    Cilla Carden took her case to the Supreme Court of Western Australia, citing her neighbors' barbecuing, smoking and children playing basketball, among other complaints, reported Australia's Nine.
    Carden accused her neighbors of intentionally setting up these nuisances.
    "It's deliberate," she told Nine. "All I can smell is fish.





    Anywhere close and I would have to start having the bbq run every damned day, if nothing else a chicken wing or leg.

    BBQ just the left wings.

    I found a textualized report. Yeah, she is a bit of a kook:

    A vegan in Western Australia who took her neighbours to the supreme court with complaints about the smell of meat and fish from their barbecues has said she is considering further potential legal action.

    The court and the state’s administrative tribunal have both thrown out Cilla Carden’s complaints about her neighbours, including their cooking smells, cigarette smoke, chairs scraping on concrete, reflective light and the sounds of children playing basketball and pet birds.

    Carden, a massage therapist who lives at Girrawheen in Perth’s north, says the ongoing dispute has robbed her of quality of life and claimed her neighbours actions are deliberate.

    “They’ve put it there so I smell fish, all I can smell is fish,” Carden told Nine. “I can’t enjoy my backyard, I can’t go out there.”

    She says she hasn’t been able to sleep and just wants to live her life in peace.

    The legal saga has dragged on since August 2017.

    One neighbour told Nine he had removed the barbecue and had stopped his children playing basketball.

    “Ms Carden’s demands were proven to be not reasonable and indeed were to the detriment of the other owners’ ability to enjoy their lots in a reasonable and acceptable manner,” another neighbour said in a statement to Nine.

    Supreme court chief justice Peter Quinlan dismissed Carden’s appeal last month.

    He ruled after considering all material he was not satisfied “that there is an arguable case that the tribunal denied Ms Carden procedural fairness or acted to her disadvantage so as to cause a miscarriage of justice”.

    “Ms Carden was given a fair opportunity to present her case, and the learned tribunal member conducted the proceedings fairly and appropriately,” the judgment said.

    He encouraged all parties to “direct their considerable energies towards the resolution of their differences as best they can”.

    Legal aid organisations have warned legal intervention in neighbourhood disputes could be expensive and lengthy.

    “If you and your neighbour can’t reach agreement, dispute resolution may be an easier, quicker and cheaper way to resolve matters,” Legal Aid Victoria says.


    Vegan takes neighbours to court in Western Australia over smell from barbecues
    Our neighborhood is parceled into lots 5000 sf so we are very close in. I did ask my next door neighbor to please not have his kids bounce the basketball outside my kitchen window as that irregular bounce noise makes me irritable. They have a place to play on the other side of their garage which buffers the noise and they graciously agreed. Whew! I was very nice about it, practically apologetic.

    I guess my camper fires, tire fires, and the likes are out of the question?

    Um, yeah, thanks, but your recent use of "metaphorically" made me laugh out loud! Gotta love that.

    Campers, tires, and whatever else I burn is not metaphoric, one look at the half dead burnt trees around the ash pit tells the story better than I can! I'm almost certain they can my fires from space!

    Not to minimalise the message, but this guy's presentation style is absolutely hilarious, I always liked Aussie humour. Can't wait to show this one to the mates. I'm off to the land of Youtube to find more of his posts.

    Big cookout planned in October. 2,000 people have shown interest.

    She should hire a stadium PA and blast Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, and Grateful Dead at the cookout. Now that would make for a proper shitshow.

    It only takes one touch-hole to start a chain reaction! Feminism is a million touch-holes times 10,000! It's why we stay away! If I were on that continent I would traverse it just to attend the BBQ, and you can bet I'd bring my custom made MAN-GRILL and lots of raw red meat!

    One comment from the above article:

    Where exactly is the planet Vega? Wherever it is, I think these Vegans should return to their home planet and leave us earthlings to enjoy our wonderful BBQs.

    It's blowing up on Reddit. There is going to be a huge, massive street barbeque. The raid on Area 51? Old meme. It's all about the vegan, now.
