You're the one that gets upset when we don't snip quite enough for your liking. So PKB!

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.

Perhaps more time should be spent teaching the kids not to be so bloody stupid.

Some believe that the world converting to the metric system would greatly simplify our measures. But look what would really happen to our old cliches:
A miss is as good as 1.6 kilometres.

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!

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, killing him. It usually won't make the news unless somebody is killed.

By all means sell mowers with those switches, etc, etc. IF the customer wants them, but never make safety mandatory.

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 they healed.
I guess the dead man switch might have saved him if he had to get off the mower to check that out.

He wasn't worth saving. Protecting the stupid allows them to breed.

I think you're right with small boys. They don't understand the concept of spinning blades and dangers they can't see. Eventually when they get some understanding, about age 25, then it's different.

If it takes them 25 years to understand rotation, they aren't worth saving.

So just because your head is stuck in the sand does not mean it doesn't happen.

Find out how many times someone has cut a lawn without accidents, and express the above as a percentage. Then get back to us and have a reasoned discussion.

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.
