Toyota still shows ads of Toyota pickups driving
across moving rivers. Don't try anything close to it.
We had a little flood and I lost the road in the ground
fog and ended up in a ditch and three feet of water.
Got stuck but that little experience caused me a three
thousand dollar bill for the engine because of water
and in the engine.
What is not mentioned is that the outrageous awards
are a problem created by dumb juries and no one gets
the amounts you hear about, because they are always
appealed and the amount always comes way down.
I think the lady burning herself on McDonalds coffee
got about $30,000 after appeal. I somehow doubt that
came to much more than her lawyer's fee. Since most
people try to not do jury duty we apparently only get
ding a lings sometimes.
Wisdom is what is left after you have done all the dumb stuff.
