Basically, if your coin flips heads twenty times in a row, disregard
"maturity of chances" as the basis for future bets, and go with the
obviously sufficient evidential probability that the coin is somehow
influenced in that direction. :)
As an employer, I'd take your $72k for 8 incidents any day over a jury
award of $1.5 million for each incident ... $12,000,000, or over 1300
times the price.

Like it or not, that is the US law system. If it had been a "frivolous"
suit, you could countersue, I think. IANAL!!!
Btw, I like the system in other countries, where you can be forced to
pay the expenses of the winner of a suit, if the winner is the
defendant. But that doesn't apply here (yet?).
Make sure you cancel your auto insurance and cut off the seat belts

As an individual user with 50 years of no incidents under my belt, I'll
take 3 new pickup trucks over $72,000 wasted in false trips.
We'll be watching for new nicknames with missing strings of letters in

Just one question Jack. How will you show your face here if you chop
one of your fingers off? How will you ever live down the shame?
Sorry, that's two questions. Feel free to answer one or both. :)
The big difference, is that I wouldn't have been spouting my mouth off
beforehand, about how it's never going to happen to me.
That's the big difference between you and me. You flaunt your
arrogance and "it will never happen to me" attitude with every line
of text you post. That kind of presumed 'specialness' makes people
watch you for your inevitable screwup.
Not to worry, masters of the universe tend to not divulge problems when
they happen so as far as we know they may or may not have any digits
right now. LOL
About 25 years ago when I worked in an automobile dealership we had a
loud mouth, had an answer for everything know it all, been there done
that, had it better, had it worse, et., 22 year old mechanic. You know
the type? ;~)
Anyway another mechanic had a technical difficulty with lowering a
vehicle down from an above ground lift. Oddly the lift arm on one side
began lowering before the other and they became racked, no pun intended.
The lift would neither lower or raise until the weight was removed
from the lower side. The big mouth mechanic mentioned no less that 10
ways to resolve the situation, none of which were used. I called our
wrecker in to lift one end of the vehicle enough to relieve the tension
on the lower rack and long story short the car came down with out mayhem.
Immediately and almost at the top of his voice the loud mouth mechanic
started taking credit for the resolution repeating how it all went down
to all of us that were there, like we could not comprehend what just
During his yammering he turned around to go back to his stall and but
kept looking back at us. The moment he turned his head to watch where
he was going he walked squarely into another lift arm which resulted in
a nice red knot on his fore head. He did shut up for a moment. LOL
Weeks later as he was retelling the story to some one that did not
witness his accomplishment, he left out the detail of his close
encounter with the adjacent lift.
<g> Which is when someone should have reached over and thumped him
with a thumb/middlefinger thwack, right on the knot, saying "Forgot

So, do you wear a NASCAR approved crash helmet when you ride in a car,
or do you think you are master of the universe, completely ignoring the
thousands and thousands and thousands of deaths and injuries that could
be prevented/minimized with just a simple preventive measure.
Yeah, the type that if the government doesn't force them to wear a
NASCAR approved crash helmet when riding in a car, they won't wear one,
because they think they are masters of the universe.
I assume you ran out and bought a SS to make sure you keep all your
fingers, right, or are you a master?
