Pennsylvania man sues Google founders for $5 billion over secret code in his social security number

Even with all the serious lawsuits surrounding Google every now and then there's still a case that seems just ... off. The latest suit against Google and its founders stems from a man who cared enough to handwrite all 23 pages of his complaint.

One Dylan Stephen Jayne of Pennsylvania filed suit against “Google Internet Search Engine Founders” in Pennsylvania Civil court, seeking the small amount of $5 billion dollars. Jayne claims that his safety is in jeopardy because of Google releasing personal information about him.

Jayne asserts that individuals looking to perform acts of terrorism could obtain his information from Google, making it more likely that he will be detained wrongfully in the future. Jayne’s statement of claim is that, “Dylan Steven Jayne, plaintiff, has a social security number that when the social security number is turned upside down in its entirety it is a scrambled code that does spell the name Google.”

Jayne goes on to state that the United States Department of Justice is heading the investigation into the allegations of crimes against humanity by the Google Search Engine founders and that he was illegally detained as a juvenile in the Milford, Pennsylvania County Court of Common Pleas. Jayne also claims, amongst other things, that he was placed in jail for two-years under misdemeanor charges of resisting arrest and public drunkenness.

Luckily for Google, Jayne is willing to accept the first check in the amount of $250,000 and a second check for the remaining balance. 

Submitted for evidence, Jayne included virtually every piece of his private information; including his credit card, library card and bank overdraft statements.

At the time of publication, "Dylan Stephen Jayne" revealed no hits on Google.  "Dylan Jayne" revealed approximately 200 hits regarding this suit.  In time, Jayne's lawsuit may become a self-fullfilling prophecy -- documents from this case are quickly being circulated through the Internet.  While it may not consistute crimes against humanity, Jayne's personal information is quickly becoming everyone else's business.

I'll guess that's where you're from and comment as such. The difference between England and the US is far more than our simply wasting billions on frivolous lawsuits, see out biggest problem is that most of the time, it's Jury's that award these people stupid ammounts of cash. Not to mention that in England, if you are completely drunk and trip, it's your own damn fault. Not the shoe company, and the tile company, and the owner of shop accross the street who didn't take down a sign that had bright colors on it and distracted you. Our biggest problem is that we have very stupid people, who actually want to blame other people, and other stupid people who think that you deserve a lot of money for being stupid.

Don't get me wrong I'm proud to be an American, but some times I think we should let natural selection have another shot at deciding who is smart enough to reproduce.

Its not about stupid. Its about understanding the system. Its about handing someone $10K to get rid of them as a nuisance. Like it or not those people are being rewarded for bad behavior, because it's cheaper in the short run. And that raises costs for all of us as it snowballs.
