And I thought this one was silly: Pondscum Lawyers won't be satisfied until we have to tattoo every newborn with warnings. I want my plain car visor back.

I want my plain car visor back.

I like the "Do not use in bathtub" warning on my wife's hairdryer.

Wouldn't the need for warnings like these eventually become irrelevant as people dumb enough to require them, eliminated themselves from the gene pool?

I prefer wooden bats to metal bats — not for safety reasons but because metal bats are a scourge on the game, much like the designated hitter. The "crack" of a wooden bat is as American as apple pie; the "ping" of a metal bat is as hollow as the taste of the $2.99 store-bought substitute.

Actually, metal bats are more dangerous. There's a reason they are banned above the amateur level.

No, I don't think this lawsuit is justified. But I do have a problem with idiots turning a classical American outdoor game into a real-life version of a video game. Juiced up bats, balls and players all need to be banned.

What’s worse, this kind of venal gesture disgraces the memory of the dead. And it is logically, legally, and morally unsupportable.

What kind of a jury in its right mind could find a causal connection between the manufacturer of the bat and the kid’s death? And if that connection exists, what other specious connections can be made?

This should be appealed and reversed.

This case will be appealed to the Montana sUPREME cOURT and it, by law, has to be accepted.

We'll see what the MT sUPREMES decide on this.

There are some awful justices - like Leaphart - on the MT SC. Let us all hope this horrendious decision is overturned so it is not forced to be appealed to the (yuck) Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

My straightening iron came with the warning “Do not use this product while sleeping”.

The reflective screen I put in my windshield when parked is labelled “Do not drive with screen in place.”

Why don’t they just go ahead and put the following on everything ....

“Warning: You’re too stupid to use this product. Put it down and back away, or use at your own risk.”

Pathetic for these parents to put a price on their boy’s life. Now the parents can party.

Almost certainly they were solicited to sue by said pondscum lawyers.
