What is up with every TV commercial embedding a tiny "Do not attempt" disclaimer at the bottom of the screen?!
May as well finish it with:
"You are part of a failed society that is clumsy, stupid and brainwashed. You're risk-adverse because you're all perpetual children with no common sense. Coddled into and throughout adulthood, you think a Participation Award is preferable to actually winning. Or even being good at something.
So just don't try it. Whatever it is. At home, or anywhere.
Our lawyers made us put that disclaimer on the screen, but be honest with yourself, it's for your own good. You might hurt yourself. Or, worse yet, hurt your feelings. And we need happy, stupid, timid people to buy our products.
I don't direct this toward anyone here, or our community in general. Just seems like that's what they think of us.
I often imagine the men of the 101st Airborne looking out of their C-47 transports on D-Day...
"I don't know, Lieutenant. That's a long drop. Can we just go back to the jump tower and practice some more?"
Just jump. For God's sake, jump.
