Some of the warnings are pretty standard, but really, when they have to add warnings about not watching a 3D television near an open stairwell or balcony ... doesn't common sense figure in here somewhere?
True story . . .
A man buys a RV to go camping with. While on the road, he sets the cruise control, then proceeds to leave the drivers seat and walks back to the kitchenette to make himself a sandwich. Of course with no one steering the RV, it leaves the road and crashes and the man is injured.
He proceeds to sue the RV manufacturer saying that it doesn't say anything in the owners manual that while the cruise control is engaged, the RV still must be manned at the steering wheel . . .
And a jury agreed with him and found the defendant guilty.
