I really do support the notion of removing ALL safety notices and letting nature take its course.


You have my vote. In some things we should just let evolution take its course.

i cut myself with a kitchen knife before, i should go look at who made them and start a lawsuit. No where on the packaging did I see a "knives can cut you" warning.

In the United States, yes. Congress made laws that require business's to label any dangers any product has that are considered reasonable. Failure to do so means the company is ignoring United States law and should be fined until it is fixed.

DALLAS, TX - A Texas woman is suing the Dallas Cowboys and owner Jerry Jones, saying her buttocks was severely burned when she sat on a bench outside Cowboys Stadium.

In a lawsuit filed last week in Tarrant Count, Jennelle Carrillo said the black marble bench was in direct sunlight on a hot August afternoon before a Cowboys scrimmage last year. A weather official says the high temperature on that day was 101 degrees.

Carrillo's lawyer, Michael Wash, said his client didn't know the extent of the burns until after receiving medical attention. The lawsuit claims she was hospitalized and underwent skin grafts.

The lawsuit claims there were no warnings about sitting on the benches in hot weather. :huh:

When you read stupid warnings on products (like these http://www.rinkworks.../warnings.shtml) you think "Why on earth did they put these??"

The answer is to avoid being sued by dumbasses like this :|

I didn't read through the whole list to see if my favorite one of all time was there. I was cooking a frozen pizza once and was reading the directions for how long to cook it. Under the directions it read: "Remove pizza from box and plastic wrapping before cooking".

I lawl'd. Because, the only thing I could think at that moment was that they put this on there because somebody somewhere has actually tried to cook this thing while it was still in the box. What's in the box?!

She should be sued for being so damn stupid. If i see a black granite bench in Dallas TX in August i'm going to think twice about sitting on it. I'm not going to say oh! look! a nice cool place to sit! :rolleyes:

^ Yeah, I'd damn sure would have brought a pillow to sit on, no matter what the temp -- and on a hot sunny day, an umbrella too. :p

And it happened back in 2010 and now she's just now bringing it up. The Dallas Cowboys will give her some money though, they'll give her some money just to shut her up.
