Hi Everybody. The only reason why microwave instructions include " place in microwave " and packs of silica gel say "Do not eat" is because there are a lot of stupid people in the world Tongue

I'm sure someone out there has put their head in the microwave to dry their hair then went on to use the hair dryer to heat up their pack of instant Silica Sarcastic_hand

Vaping Saves Lives. To vape is to advocate..

Unfortunately this is probably true.

Then sued someone when the desired effect was not achieved.

I remember the first microwave I came across - this would have been around 1981.

I'd got some mincemeat pies from the excellent baker across the road. Stuck them in the microwave. Took them out again - the pastry wasn't even warm. Stuck them back in again for a few minutes then bit into some magma. That hurt!

But my reaction wasn't to sue someone - it was to go ow!

That's been the case for a very long time. Shakespeare's character Dick the butcher said in Henry Vi part 2 "The first thing we do, we'll kill all the lawyers". This was written around 1591. It seems some things never change.

Or as Einstein put it, the two things most likely to be infinite are the Universe and stupidity. And I'm not too sure about the Universe.

There is a need for those laws but the "entitled" as ever need their poor sensibilities dealt with by applying very large amounts of other people's money.

Lol i mean in that sense, yes people are idiots. why do you think mcdonalds and all the fast food places have to put CAUTION HOT on all their coffees? Some woman bought a mcD's coffee, spilt it on her lap and sued big time!

And was awarded $6 million. Till the award was overturned by a superior court not staffed by 6 year olds.

Thank goodness for appellate courts staffed by sane people.

Here, the mad woman would not have been able to sue in the first place - or at least not without spending around a million dollars up front. Which she wouldn't have got back.

There is this wonderful concept in Scots Law (rarely invoked) of the "vexatious litigant". 

Only reason I know this stuff is my late father was a professor of law.
