BERLIN, GERMANY - SEPTEMBER 11: A family relax and prepare barbecued chicken and sausages at former Tempelhof airport on September 11, 2011 in Berlin, Germany. Tempelhof, located in central Berlin, was an airport built in the 1930s and is most known for being the main airport used by the Allies in the Berlin Airlift that kept the city and its residents supplied during a blockade by Soviet forces in 1948. The airport closed in 2008 and the grounds were reopened in 2010 as a public park called Tempelhofer Freiheit. City officials are currently considering various proposals for the park's future design that include adding apartment buildings on its outskirts and adding a new subway stop for better access.

Imagine just cooking and minding your business and getting sued? This recently happened in Australia. USA Today explains that a vegan woman, Cilla Carden, filed a suit against her neighbor after complaining about the smell of the meat and fish the neighbor was cooking – in their own backyard. “It’s deliberate. All I can smell is fish. I can’t enjoy my backyard.”

This isn’t the only “beef” she has. She’s also suing the neighbor for smoking and for children playing basketball.

So far, a lower court has thrown out the case; the supreme court has also rejected the claim. In regards to the appeal case she is currently filling, complete with 600 pages of documents, Carden states, “I’m a good person. I just want peace and quiet.”
