Man Sueing Apple

Ok, I thought it was dumb when a stupid decrepit waste of life sued McDonald's for burning HERSELF with coffee. This one goes even further.

Come on people... there is a little thing called personal responsibility. Have we totally overlooked the fact that users of i-pods are the ones who control the volume. If you don't want hearing loss, turn it down.

A jet engine would destroy my hearing if I put my head directly next to it. If I did, I wouldn't sue Boeing for my idiocy. I don't feel bad for anyone that loses hearing from listening to an i-pod. If you are too stupid to know that putting a noise maker in your ear and cranking it up to full blast might damage your hearing than you deserve to live the rest of your life going "huh, I didn't hear you."

Why do we have to live with these morons?

Here is my favorite part.

"Patterson does not know if the device has damaged his hearing, said his attorney, Steve W. Berman, of Seattle. But that's beside the point of the lawsuit, which takes issue with the potential the iPod has to cause irreparable hearing loss, Berman said."

They admit that the lawsuit is about "the potential the iPod has to cause irreparable hearing damage." I have the potential to kill you. Does that mean you can convict me of manslaughter before I do it? Of course not. As long as I am intelligent enough not to kill you then I am free from serving time in Sing Sing being ass raped by some child molester who wasn't smart enough to act on all of his potentialities. Even worse is the fact that in this case the user controls the potential. There is no potential as long as the PERSON using the iPod is smart enough not to damage their own ears. It would be like you controlling me with a voodoo doll, making me stab you in the eye with an umbrella from a boat drink and then charging me with assault.

No judge in their right mind would rule against Apple in this case... I hope...
