A Perfect Storm

How come when anything goes wrong now, it’s described as a perfect storm?

I think it’s just a way to avoid taking responsibility when you screw up.

Is a perfect storm worse than a shit-storm? How do we rank them, ordinally?

[quote] A Perfect Storm

A foolish idiom.

The word 'perfect' implies this storm is desirable when it is most certainly not!

This idiom is as misguided as the misuse of the ambiguous word 'progressive' which carries the implication of desirability.
