Contract law isn't divine. The manufacturer should have anticipated this, and should share responsibility. I don't care what the small print says because I'm interested in ethics, not a career in law (although I do have a law degree).

Male something idiot proof and the world will build a better idiot.

Be wary of vehicles who's number plates indicate that they came from department 75. Having lived in Paris for a while it was always humorous to see someone with a huge ass Mercedes S class or BMW 7 series park it, especially if there was a smart car in front or behind them.

So that's why the 'smart' cars are so small.

Well I think that anyone in the New Mexico area that wants to play this came should wander over to Los Alamos.

Although a the article is bit dated, I wonder if their junkyard still is open for business.

I've not found that to be true. I don't get a whole lot of troll posts, but they do show up from time to time. Occasionally they are deserved, most of the time it's clear that the moderator missed something obvious or just didn't like my attempt and humor or sarcasm.

But mod points seem to be pretty random....

And it would be awfully hard to define 'misbehaving' around here.
