@Don, you sure you are living on this planet? Have you opened a product and looked at all the safety crap in a manual? Have you looked at all of the safety warning labels? Have you not heard that no one as an individual is responsible for their actions - that others have to be held accountable when the parent leaves a mower running and Johnny decides to fetch the chewed up ball he pushed in the discharge chute? Surely you do not expect parents to be held responsible for their kids safety!!!

Sarcasm usually does not work in written form... While I fully agree who the responsible party should be, the rest of world certainly does not seem to do so. 40 years ago we studied how the world had changed through such law suits. How a mower manufacturer could be held liable for fools lifting a running mower with their hands and using it to trim bushes with relatively thick stalks when compared to grass.. seems to me that reason and intelligence stopped a long time ago and has not returned to the forefront. Then I guess the old people always see things that way...

And yet Don, I can speak about a safety feature on a tractor that I both love an hate - that seat safety switch! There are too many still killed by their bypassing the switch.

I can also talk about lessons learned when one ignores safety protocols. Cutting limbs on a tree without a hardhat on one's head comes to mind. Hard lesson to learn.

I'm not sure where the lines should be drawn for sometimes I am on the wrong side of the line. And who gets to draw the line?

@Jack@European_Parts - dang those are ugly trucks... 5 years to come up with that concept? and they still have to design it? :facepalm:
Looks pretty similar to some of the cartoon trucks I've watched with my step-grandson - ugly (the trucks not the step-grandson!).

Solar Power Satellites are not exactly a new idea; it goes all the way back to 1941.
