The Stupid Burns

June 24, 2010 23:25:18.469

Sometimes I think society as a whole is engaged in a suicide pact. First example:

Transocean’s ban on employee knife possession nearly killed several BP drilling rig survivors, by preventing them from cutting the rope that attached the life boat to the drilling rig.

And, the second example, from San Francisco:

Last week, the city's board of supervisors voted 10-1 to require cellphone retailers to show how much radiation their phones emit. Mayor Gavin Newsom is expected to sign it, making it the first such law in the nation.

At some point, we'll all be so safe that we won't be able to do anything but quietly starve in a padded room...
