In a perfect world, stupidity would be painful. At the very least, your I.Q. should be tattooed on your forehead so everyone knows who they're dealing with.

toetagmodel2 You could tell the Millennials NOT to do it... that would get most of them...
Or make it a trend on tweeter or bookface... should bring in a few...

Or just wait until we need a bar-code tattoo'd on us to buy or sell anything... all the information will be in there...

1) rules for driving are necessary because you being a moron can kill other folks that aren't morons
2) rules for seat belts are similar - you bouncing around the inside of a rolling car are a 200 lb bag of meat that can seriously hurt other occupants.  BTW, this includes large pets.  belt them in as well
3) Unfortunately, due to the unalienable right of folks to sue other folks, products need to be labelled, not always because of laws, but because their producers don't want to be sued.  This is why coffee comes in a cup labelled "contents are hot".
4) Some products need to be labelled with warnings because stupid folks will use them and hurt other folks.  Things like not turning off the pilot light for the water heater when using a varnish elsewhere in the basement.  The smart folks upstairs didn't need to be launched into orbit because you decided to varnish that table without thinking about what they're doing.

Finally,

Just because shit gets labelled doesn't mean that folks aren't going to either ignore the warnings, or  simply do it anyway.

Darwinism is still alive, eliminating doofuses from the gene pool.  We might all wish that the rate of elimination was a little higher, but I'm sure we've all had that "OMG - I can't believe I was that dumb" moment.  Sometime we do need a second chance.

punko Additionally, stupid people getting injured increased the burden on our healthcare system.  I don't know if that is justifiable reason for legislating stupidity, but there are costs for all when stupid people injure themselves.

I actually saw a warning on a package of steak knives that was so moronic I had to laugh, It said " Contents Not to be taken internally" How many Idiots do you know see a steak knife and think it is desert?

I agree with it on most everything, except telling people what they can and can't do while driving.  Someone texting while driving can get me, my daughter or anyone else killed because of their stupidity.  That's not ok.  Seatbelts, whatever, only going to get themselves hurt.  Laws requiring us to wear seat belts are stupid.  Laws making people not text while driving are smart.

He sings so happily! :-)

Hopefully people are familiar enough with Foamy that they don't need an NSFW warning on it... although that would be kind of funny too :-D
