It's poll day

Poll #757812 Muzak

Can you still be a human being if you don't crave the occasional Hendrix song?

Yes. I am one!
6(35.3%)
I guess so. I mean people existed before the 60's, right?
4(23.5%)
Possibly, but not a very good one.
3(17.6%)
Not really. The best you can hope for is human-monkey hybrid.
0(0.0%)
No. You can only be a machine. A cold unfeeling unloveable machine. I hate you machine man. I hate you so much.

I am not a good American

Yesterday I cut my finger on an electric mixer due to my own rampant stupidity.

It has taken me this long to think "Wait, I could sue!"

Of course I won't, while I think tort reform is a bullshit platform designed to protect corporations that do REAL harm, this incident was entirely my fault. Do not switch on electric mixer blade while your finger is next to it is something that the instruction manual shouldn't have to say.

But still, an an American, suing SHOULD be my first impulse, right? It should go "My finger! I should sue! I wonder if I need medical attention."
