    Has Anyone Seen This??

    Just saw this and it's unbelievable at least to me. What is our word coming to?

    Litigation Nation is right. How many states will try the same trick....and will Lowe's cave in all of them or will they change product descriptions nationwide now, to preempt?

    All spoons must be labeled clearly as to which side is to face "up" following a 5 bazillion dollar judgement levied by a jury of someone's peers. Failure to follow direction may result in soiled clothing, wasted food and an increase in job opportunities for floor moppers (currently making $37.50 thanks to the economy-saving increase in minimum wage).

    Its things like this that make me understand why everyone thinks Californians are crazy. We're really not; its all those out-of-staters that moved here to catch a few rays, ended up unemployed since there's not much job opportunity without a solid skillset so, they do jury duty since they haven't got anything better to do

    I refurbished a small equestrain stable originaly built in the 1880's or so. It had actual 2x4 lumber in some areas.

    It also had planks on the roof 1 inch thick by over 24 inches wide.

    When was the last time a 2x4 was 2x4? Probably over 100 years ago.

    My goodness. Before I opened that link, I really thought I had lost the capacity to be surprised at random acts of stupidity.

    Apologies to those who still truly love California, but I'm looking forward to seeing it in my rear-view mirror for the last time soon. I'll be glad to visit, but I've lost my desire to be a resident again. It's actually a beautiful place, but it's just got too many problems (and people) attached to it.

    But where will I go to get my 1 1/2's by 3 1/2's ?

    That judge may have been educated, but he certainly lacks intelligence.
