  1. Was I the only one surprised that the pitching machine wasn’t recalled due to “possibility of being hit by ball”?

    And what good is a hooded sweatshirt without a cord for the hood? It’s like a motorized tie rack w/o the motor.

    Laceration from a power saw? Whooda thunk it. They must not be using the rubber tipped safety blades.

    I wish they would stop recalling items due to people’s stupidity. I mean really. A saw that lacerates? A hooded shirt that can strangle?

  3. @GitEmSteveDave, @mopar_man: Yeah consumers should expect power tools to smoke, spark, trip circuit breakers, and keep operating when it is shut off.

    People are stupid to think that a safety brake should work just because it’s an available feature. I mean, really!
