It's even worse on a bike, the amount of people that don't use their indicators and just seem to ignore cyclists is massive.Originally Posted by Clapo
Yeah that kind of thing is honestly just insane, no question. Sick of all this blame that gets thrown around these days. Nobody wants to be responsible for anything, and those that would have the guts to admit responsibility can't afford to because as soon as you say sorry you can be hung from your garters and crucified like American Pie when Madonna covered it.Originally Posted by Clapo
It reminds me of that nefarious tumult a few years back with people wanting John Howard to personally apologise for the Stolen Generation, which is absolutely ridiculous seeing as he wasn't even alive when it started. And naturally Howard can't apologise anyway because if he did he would be sued into oblivion for something he and the current government are completely innocent of. Now how can you hold someone responsible now for something you didn't do and had no control over, just because 'someone' should be held accountable? ****ing well get over it and accept that you got wronged and take it with a grain of salt and shut up. There's no use ruining someone else's life for it.

'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

Whats with the Simpsons getting all seedy? Seems like they have run out of available humour in their new episodes, and its basically an animated version of *** in the City with yellow people instead of Kristin
Complete trash - if you sue someone just because the law allows you to, even when you know they've done nothing wrong, you are garbage as a human being, no joke. I think if we can reach an agreement in cricket that you don't run overthrows when you deflect the ball, then you can agree not to file a lawsuit against someone because their pavement made you fall over and graze your knee. Guaranteed you would change your opinion pretty damn quickly if at that coffee place you worked at, you served someone a hot macchiato, they spilled it all over themselves and they then sued your balls off for it.Originally Posted by Langeveldt

They wouldnt be suing me they'd be suing Costa.. I'm sure 99% of people if offered 10,000 dollars on burning themselves would take it.. The law is an absolute joke, the people just exploit it..Originally Posted by Mr Casson
You get the picture and I'm sure you understand how vulnerable you are. The law isn't a joke because it really only requires you to prove that someone was responsible for the crime as far as I know, and today that's too easy to do. Honestly, what if in ten years someone breaks their leg walking up your front stairs, gets a doctor to tell them they'll never walk again and does you for a million pounds? Would you not feel like that person is scummier than toe-cheese?Originally Posted by Langeveldt

The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!
I would hate them for it, but I'd think the law and the people that allow these kinds of things to get put through were 10X worse.. I wouldnt blame the person, who for all intents and purposes has just acquired a million pounds totally legally..Originally Posted by Mr Casson
Would you do it to someone? It might be 'legal' but it doesn't make it right, nor any less shameful.Originally Posted by Langeveldt
Not sure, depends on how much was in it for me and whether I was doing it to a wealthy coorperation or a poor individualOriginally Posted by Mr Casson
Yes the laws are at fault, but the people who exploit them are trash for doing so. As Casson said, no-one takes responsibility for their own actions these days, and it's appalling, they're always looking for someone else to blame.Originally Posted by Langeveldt
Another incident that springs to mind is the deadhead who injured his neck by diving into the shallow end of some bloke's private pool, during the middle of the night whilst drunk. He won the court case and got some ridiculous amount of money because the pool owner didn't have a sign that says caution shallow water.
Money isn't always the object, repuatation, morals come before money imo. It's your own stupid fault, get the hell over it and get a life i say.
That shouldn't make a scrap of difference who the company/individual in question is. You should take responsibility for your own actions instead of passing the buck onto someone else. Instead of sueing them for all they've got, and try and get into the easy money, wouldn't it feel much more satisfying to build a business/earn a living yourself through hard work instead?Originally Posted by Langeveldt
You're a pretty smart guy, so I'm pretty shocked that you could be so naïve, degenerate and unworldly. Total utter rubbish to suggest that if through your own clumsiness or fault otherwise you disadvantage yourself, then victimising another party is acceptable just because the law allows you to. If that's not an embodiment of how selfish and grabby the world is at the moment then I'm not sure what is to be totally honest.Originally Posted by Langeveldt
It's because some people can exhibit no restraint that they set atrocious precedents which pervade into civil society and become the norm rather than the exception. In a world where good people are becoming worth their weight in gold, you've just become worth about as much as a steaming dollop of poo.
