Since we were kids they were telling jokes about the weatherman and the weather predictions. Well, it seems that the weather forecast is not just some sort of playing with the stars and guessing what tommorow can bring you, but it's actually a science.

A science where people can make mistakes and get FIRED for them.

So it happened in Romania, where the head weatherman was sacked for lousy forecasts. Ion Poiana, head of Romania's National Meteorology Agency, was fired for not delivering reliable forecasts.

For example, he failed to predict a recent cold snap which left three people dead, the Black Sea frozen and a record temperature of minus 36C.

Suulfina Barbu, environmental ministry, said:

"We consider the modern facilities for meteo prognosis were not used properly and mayors from all the country received wrong warnings. For example the mayor of Bucharest should have banned traffic according to the forecast he received."

Still, in Bucharest the weather hasn't changed....
