    <font color=blue> And we can thank all of the idiots who have won their lawsuits with these companies because they were too damn dumb to know how to use them .......... The companies have to place them on their products just to cover their butts from future lawsuits !

    A lady sued McDonalds for burning herself from her hot coffee(spilled on her lap) She won because it didn't say "caution HOT coffee" on the cup!! Can you believe it? Now it says it on all coffee cups, don't want any more lawsuits for serving hot coffee now do we?

    <font color=blue> Worse yet, A guy won a law suit against a bike manufacturer because he was hit while driving it home at night .......... the reason he won ? The bike didn't have a warning on it not to drive it at night because it didn't have headlights on it !!!!!!!!!!!! True story !

    The thing is that stuff is on there because somebody, somewhere has made the mistakes they are bringing to your attention and probably sued. And probably won. Amazing.

    I think it's pathetic that we have to put all these warnings on products to protect those that can't think for themselves. What ever happened to natural selection? Stupid people are supposed to do stupid things, that keeps the stupid gene from being carried from generation to generation. You know we have all meet people/familes like that, and you just walk away and wonder how they get through the day.
