Stupid is as stupid does

There is nothing quite as wonderful as a frivolous lawsuit. The type that seem concerned only about finding the deepest pockets and attempt to pilfer whatever they can by way of legal extortion. It reminds one of the quote from William Shakespeare, "The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers". Temping to consider that sage advice in this day and age. But, since that is not feasible, we will have to work with mere exposure and ridicule. Whoever came up with the following lawsuit should have their photo placed next to the word idiot in the dictionary.

From Professor Bainbridge:

Apple Computer’s popular iPod music player was facing a new legal threat after an aggrieved customer filed a class action complaint claiming the comany did not adequately warn customers about the potential for damaging hearing loss from playing its popular music player at full volume...

The Professor nails it with his comment:

My take? If you're too dumb to realize that playing really loud music through tiny buds stuck deep in your ear canal isn't a good idea, there's not a lot the legal system can or should do to help you. Except maybe require you to live in a bubble somewhere. BTW, if you fall into this category, you should also avoid holding cups of hot coffee between your thighs.

That pretty much covers it, except for the idiot photo part, and there is that William Shakespeare advice.
