I assume it gives people an avenue to pay for friends because there are no frats after you leave college...
Not completely true. There are the Shriners, Lions Club, AOH, SOI, FOE, and the Masons, just to name a few.

I was an elk for a year. Cheap drinks and I could smoke in the bar. I never attended a meeting.

Former “Mythbusters” co-host Adam Savage allegedly sexually abused his younger sister for years while calling himself the “raping blob” during the late 1970s, the woman says in a lawsuit filed Tuesday.

Miranda Pacchiana, 51, claims the abuse happened when she was between 7 and 10 years old when the siblings lived in Sleepy Hollow.

“Beginning in or about 1976 and continuing until approximately 1979, Adam Savage, would repeatedly rape Miranda Pacchiana and force oral sex upon her, and forced Miranda to perform oral sex on him, along with other forms of sexual abuse,” her lawsuit, filed in Westchester Supreme Court, says.

This one is... odd. Adam would've been between 9-12 years old when this occurred. How does that work, legally?

Yeah, this is likely a cash grab.
Pacchiana’s lawyer, Jordan K. Merson, said Tuesday his client “has been deeply affected, has suffered significant emotional distress and psychological and psychiatric injuries.”

He said The Child Victims Act that became law in New York last year made it possible for Pacchiana to file her claim decades after the alleged abuse.
Hmm...

Oh yeah no question its within statutes of limitations. My question was more because Savage was a minor when the allegations took place.

The article also implies that Savage has been exploited by her on a continual basis prior to the statute of limitations opening back up. So the filing shouldn't be much of a surprise at this point at the stigma of a lawsuit increases leverage.

Exploited by her how?
From the article above, the 'other side of the story':
“While I hope that my sister gets the help she needs to find peace, this needs to end. For many years, she has relentlessly and falsely attacked me and other members of my family to anyone who will listen,” Savage said. “By spreading numerous untrue stories about us in pursuit of a financial bonanza, she has tortured our entire family and estranged herself from all of us. I will fight this groundless and offensive lawsuit and work to put this to rest once and for all.”
My guess is there is more evidence of the alleged chronic harassment by her than the alleged incidents from the 1970s. But, that's what the courts are for, so let them do as they do.
