Law Suits Answered

Hey everyone, my dad and i were wondering what people can do to us as far as the law is concerned, if someone got hurt trying out an instructable. I thought that the site was a play at your own risk but, my dad and are starting to think it isn't. We just don't want to be caught up in court! We haven't gotten in trouble but just thought I would ask! Now i don't think anyone can be hurt by what i put up but i don't want to risk it! If anyone has any info please let me know!

Maybe you could be sued if you deliberately lied about a potential danger or risk. For instance, by saying that something is safe when you know it's not.

I've never heard of anybody getting sued because their project instructions got somebody hurt.

My personal inclination would be to say; If you're daft enough to follow instructions from an anonymous person on the internet without checking the facts for yourself, then you deserve everything you get.

It's not like you're being told to something, by a "real" person, such as a teacher or TV presenter (and even then, a warning of "do not try this at home" is enough to cover you).

Word to the wise: you would be advised to use the word "wankers" very cautiously- Aussies may or may not use it as a mild insult but in the UK it is definitely an offensive word.

Like all good british insults it has degrees of nuance, however- it can be used as an extension of the American "jerk" or "***hole", ie a very inconsiderate and selfish person, and also mean someone who is pretentious or arrogant to the point of being unpleasant.

Thanks - saved me trying to define it politely.

Basically, they both mean eejit.

I think it means about the same as "stupid" or "dumb" over here.
