Forgive Al-Sobbi for prefering to believe that some sinister force made those nails spring from the tortured planking. He's a grieving father who needs someone other than himself to blame for the death of his daughter, who would still be alive if he had not risked her life by attempting to jump the queue of law abiding immigrants standing in line for an Australian entry visa.
While I share the good Professor's preference for strong spirits over spirituality (make mine a Laphroiag), there are limits you know. Even for godless topers.
