Total agreement!!

Personally, I am all for getting rid of safety regulations and letting
natural selection take over again. If you want to skateboard down an
interstate, more power to you! If you are planning on re-wiring the
electrical service to your house and don't know what you are doing, then you
have a choice: a) ask someone for help (because you don't know what you are
doing) or b) merrily cut into live wires while standing in a pool of murky
water. Your choice... Your consequence. You shouldn't sue the electrical
company for running a deadly service into your home.

But that's just me agreeing with what Keith wrote.
