Hmm, interesting story, but how likely is it that a keyboard would ever get repaired, with or without the legislation?

Yep, I want my kids breast-fed by alcoholic, hormone-injecting, men.
Why don't we just get rid of all engineering guards and warning labels on everything?
With all the French labor laws, the French productivity must be terrible. Just look at where all your shirts are produced. Not France. We could learn a thing or two from the Bangladeshi.
