Jabfado, please tell me you instinctively knew not to put your finger there and that a sticker telling you not to put your fingers in a fan blade wasn't needed. Too, just because I know better doesn't mean I don't accidentally do something I know I shouldn't do.

Talking about matchbook warnings, this is the actual text of a Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company matchbook I have:


Firmly grasp individual match, keeping fingers away from the lighting tip. After liberating said match from its confinement, assure that your matchbook cover is closed. Briskly strike the tip across the provided strikeplate on the backside of your matchbook to facilitate ignition of said match. Repeat when necessary. Flame good.

None of the stickers would get anyone out of a law suit...I sort of don't even see them anymore. It seems people just want to be protected from themselves...there's no prevention for that.

Regarding stickers and lawsuits, you'd be surprised. I worked for a company that made trailer couplers. We were sued when a trailer with one of our couplers unhooked, crossed into oncoming traffic and killed two people. The coupler, made for a 2 5/8" ball, was on a 2" ball. The trailer had no safety chains and no breakaway brakes and was overloaded. We paid because our coupler did not have a label stating "Do Not Put This Coupler on a 2" Ball".

Even with warnings you can get sued.. Many moons ago a construction company dug a big ditch (Said Ditch is called M-10 or The Lodge freeway in Detroit and Southfield)

The dirt was piled up in back of Southfield City hall/library/golfcourse/police Department etc forming a very nice hill for sledding and tobogganing and such.

Hill is surrounded by the standard Seven foot high fence with angled barb wire topper and marked with signs "NO BICYCLES ON HILL"

Idiot throws his bike over the fence.. Either climbs over the fence or squeezes through (OH, also marked "NO TRESSPASSING") and takes his bike to the top and coasts down "LOOK MA LOOK NO ...WACK!!!.... HEAD. as he hit the back side of one of those No bicycles on Hill signs.

City paid.

(Frankly I think the city should have paid,, Then fined the parents for letting their kid on the hill, 3 times what they paid them for the "Wrongful Death")

Home is where I park it!
