Caution: Don’t trip over warning signs!

So when was the last time you went anywhere without seeing one of these:

If this isn’t a representation of our advanced society then I am not sure what is. I am sure there was a time when an accident was actually just that, an accident. Unfortunately, because of rampant frivolous lawsuits our society is slowly being reduced to a kiddy playground. The frustrating thing is that because a few people aren’t careful enough or just plain lack “common sense,” everyone has to deal with the outcome. John Stossel’s recent book, Myths, Lies, and Downright Stupidity, deals with this problem among many others. Check out some video clips here.

So here’s my advice, Don’t be a fool BE CAREFUL! Be aware of your surroundings. And for crying out loud – Don’t play the victim unless you have a good reason to think that you were intentionally harmed. Or else – These signs might start showing up everywhere too:
