    I can't believe what this world is coming to. London is getting his hard with terrorist acts, this has to be stopped one way or another.

    Two wrongs don't make a right.
    It isn't easy being apathetic, but someone has to do it, or it will never get done.

    Time spent doing nothing useful, is never wasted.

    Its true, even places that you would think are positively safe are no longer that way. It has to change but how will it?

    This is one of those freak accidents, my heart goes out to her family. A whipped cream can exploding hitting this woman in the chest which caused her to have a heart attack isn't something you can even imagine happening.

    How do you legislate for that?

    Here is my prediction:

    the family will sue and demand the company to redesign the can for better safety.

    if they go far enough , this will go to some consumer bureau and safety interest group and a petition will go the their local representative, representative will put it into a bill, and if the bill passed, all manufacturing plants will be mandated to implement this safety feature.

    It seems we have a mixed understanding between UKisms and Americanisms. When we say "How can you legislate for that?" We mean that, as an individual, we can't make allowances for far fetched accidents to happen. For the simple reason that it was utterly unpredictable given the information that we had at that time.

    I see your point Cherry. In everyday life just about anything can occur that is totally unexpected or unheard of. In this case a can exploding. There is no way you would ever expect that. I mean just about everything made can malfunction and in some cases cause injury or even death. Even the most perfect design can fail due to a variety of reasons from a unseen flaw in materials or a error while being manufactured. Its something that we don't think about. If we did, we would be living in a world filled with even more paranoia than we already have.
