When it was posted in randompictures, most people saw it for what it was. A couple of dumbass teenage girls putting weight on a single safety bar on a futon. (One pushing against it, the other actually using the bar to suspend her weight, but you all can see that) It is lols at a little bit of schadenfreude that was well deserved. (Anecdote: I used a towel rack in the bathroom when I was little for chin-ups. Naturally, it came off. I fell on my face. I, however, did not blame the towel rack company)
Someone quotes a movie. demonfafa takes offense to this.
"Really? so the company that made the shoddy sidebar gets away with making an inferior product, no matter how cheap it is, that can potentially injure someone?"
clobby says it best: "Hurdy durr dur."
Of course we need the random political soapbox comment, since left field was looking so lonely. My favorite part of the comment is:
"You treat common sense like it's a prerequisite for living. The law certainly doesn't see it that way."
Ummmm. Yeeeah. Remember that story about a guy who stuck a rattlesnake down his throat and was surprised when it bit him? I'd say common sense is pretty much standard for living.
And I know it seems like he's just arguing from a legal point of view (though I think anyone trained in any sort of law field would 'hunh?' at this) this comment should negate that feeling.
"I didn't make it, though I do use in online quibbling once in a while.
I think it's obvious you're taking this whole shebang from a societal point of view and I'm taking this argument strictly from a legal point of view.
Plus, by your icon, you look exactly like my ex, and that makes me argue more :-)"
Because we really need more people in favor of, 'Ouch I fell on my ass, I better sue the floor'.
