Fellow I worked with cut off part of his grandson's foot with a mower.
When my son was small I would not let him out in the yard while I was
mowing. Maybe I am over protective, but the way children run so fast
they can get in the way in no time.
It was a joke.
Anyway, we haven't change to SI. We still use both F and C for temperatures, although younger folk seem to prefer C. All our road signs are in miles and miles per hour. We measure a car's petrol consumption in miles per gallon, yet it's dispensed at the pump in litres!
Capitalism: Man exploiting man.

There used to be quite a few hand and foot injuries before mowers
required dead man switches. The only child I ever read about being a
victim was a little kid who near a mower that kicked out a wire -
think it was piece of coat hanger - and it penetrated his head,
It usually won't make the news unless somebody is killed.
There was a fellow at work that was between 50 and 60 years old that
almost lost some fingers on a mower. He thought the blades on his
riding mower may not be turning so like a dummy he stuck his hand it
there to see if he could feel the blades turning. He was lucky the
blades just nicked the ends of about 3 fingers and after a few weeks
I guess the dead man switch might have saved him if he had to get off
the mower to check that out.
Your display of personal ignorance does not mean it doesn't happen.
So just because your head is stuck in the sand does not mean it doesn't

Do Americans still do those "chore" things? When I was a kid in the UK, I was always amazed that American kids had to do regular work around the house. If UK kids did anything like that, they were paid for it, or they refused to do it.
