Litigiousness


I saw a commercial that was trying to be funny (though it wasn't) in which a guy throws his TV off his roof, sending it crashing to the ground.  On the bottom of the screen, whilst this is transpiring, is written, "Do not attempt."  No!  Sorry.  You don't get to write that because you shouldn't need to!  If someone is so stupid that they throw their TV off their roof and then try to sue the company that made the commercial because there was no explicit warning not to do so, that plaintiff should be sentenced to death.  He/she is clearly holding all of us back.

Think about it: if you could be given the death penalty for filing staggeringly inane, frivolous lawsuits, people would be far less litigious.  They'd think twice before wasting taxpayers' money and blaming everyone and anyone else for their own mental deficiencies.  And if they're still too stupid to think twice...good!  We're rid of them.  Furthermore, any judge who rules in favor of these ignoramuses should also be sentenced to death.

Murderers sometimes deserve a second chance, but not these leeches who force us to scrawl "Do not attempt" everywhere.  Given the right context, murder? . . . I can understand.
