further clogging up an already overcrowded legal system with Segway related lawsuits
Not completely related, but I finally got to see "Bowling for Colombine" the other day. I thought I knew the US was wierd in many ways, but man, did I underestimate! Why dont you just call it the Paranoid States of America? I mean fear of terror (to the level of buying gas-masks) fear of lawsuits,(to the degree that you cant sell a plastic bag, hot coffee, or wash the floor, without a warning that it could kill you, which ironically leads to more fear) fear of lack of success, fear of people breaking in to your house to murder your children..
what the hell is this? Where I live, nobody would file a lawsuit because of a segway (or more realisticly, a bicycle) accident. I dont even think it would be considered (unless maybe if it was clearly intentional), nobody tells us coffee is hot, or that we shouldnt let our children put plastic bags on their head, nobody has guns at home to "feel safer", the very few who have guns, keep them for hunting. Not even our police force carry guns.(unless there is a serious crime somewhere..)
I dont mean to sound offensive or hostile towards your culture, but come on, relax a little, Americans, you need less guns and less fear
