Dunno about the USA, but Australia would be a much nicer place if every whiny asshole 'earning' over $250K left. We got rid of Murdoch that way, for example. Too bad Gina Rhinehart hasn't followed his lead.
Sure, because what the parents OBVIOUSLY should've done was leave their kid on the ground & sprint to the courthouse. I mean, imagine how much bigger a payout they would be up for if their kid had died? Fools!
