Yes! When I upgraded all 14 PC's in the building, I bothered to read all of the documentation that came with the monitors. One 4x6 leaflet about the dangers of water and the monitor and warnings about sitting too close for too long. The fine print that came with the keyboards (single folded 3x3 card tied to the cord) warned of repetitive motion injuries.

I can do without the Nanny State, thank you very much. But there are too many folk that need to be told *repeatedly* that there are dangerous things in modern/industrial life.

Is it possible to create a class system based on how responsible someone has proven him/her self to be?

Those that need self-driving cars, padded stairwells and no access to sharp objects. Vs. People that can drive reasonably when the weather turns foul (and know when to pull off); people that can handle tools and equipment that can kill bystanders or the user if not careful.

Do we need a certification process for kitchen knives?

In my Seneca, the original ladder for the over-cab bed (assuming there WAS one from the factory at all) is gone. The previous owner replaced it with a nicely-thought-out little steel one with about 12" on centers for the rungs. Works, but it's like lifting a 75 lb barbell, and climbing the thing in bare feet is painful. It's made out of 1" square thick wall steel tubing, and the rungs actually hurt your feet, especially at my weight class. But it works. I'll get around to modifying all three rungs someday to make them more comfortable, and the ladder heavier yet. But for now, it's just not a priority.

We chucked ours out the first day and bought a nice folding step ladder at Menard's, that doubles for a lot of other uses. The one that comes with the Seneca is For Sale to the highest bidder or it gets chucked when we move.
Kinda like my wife saying, "Do you want to eat this, as she smells something that came from the back of refrigerator, or should I just through it away?"

Any man can treat a lady right for one night, but it takes a great man to treat her right for the rest of her life.
