    I just watched the 3 Stooges remake and they dedicated the last 10 minutes or so to a public service announcement that you shouldn't do this or that and showed all the rubber props and how they did the stunts... I just shook my head and rolled my eyes...

    The kids aren't any dumber, their parents will just sue now.
    I liked Slim Pickens ride, in Dr. Strangelove best.

    I'd say the parents are dumber now, however.

    Used to be, if a kid did something stupid and injured himself, he was an idiot, people back then didn't need a disclaimer put on every facet of life.

    Now suddenly every parent points the finger at other things, you know, God forbid they take responsibility for it.

    Now we have to be warned that steaming coffee is "extremely hot", because the idiot who spilled it on himself wasn't warned of it.

    like the guy who put his camper on cruise control and then went and made himself a coffee.... thats why the motor vehicles have disclaimers on cruise control.

    What do you expect in a country where you can sue for 4.5 Mio $ for hot coffee? It's gaining popularity hre too - including fancy warning labels.

    To me, personally, it's just asinine.

    People just don't like to admit fault anymore. Better to point the finger at someone else, and then lawyers cater to those people saying "well, if you successfully point the finger at him, you can get rich off the settlement!"

    The level of stupid with suing these days is nuts, there is a chainsaw company that has a legitimate warning label that says "Do not attempt to stop moving blade with hands, feet, or genitalia" someone tried it and sued because it chopped it all up

    People look for reasons to sue, while I worked at Target I heard people on multiple occasions say "They are out of [sale item] on the first day of the sale, you should sue for the inconvenience", or when we had a tv stand on sale in the flyer one time they forgot to put the disclaimer that the TV pictured was not included in the $30 sale price and people were threatening to sue when they found out the TV (32" Samsung) would cost them $350 on top of the $30 for the stand

    Also all of these law companies that advertise about certain medicines that had side effects and if you were affected you might be in for some money, most recent I believe is acetaminophen or something (which is known to cause stomach issues with excessive use) but you can join the class action suit for it
