That's because we usually try to apply common sense, which will almost
always turn out to be a losing strategy in a product liability case.

I fully expect that sooner or later some product or another will need to
come with a lockout that delivers an embedded safety briefing, will not
allow a user to operate the product until a test on the content has been
passed AND incorporates recognition that can distinguish one user from
another so that nobody can ever use it without first being
safety-qualified. Mark that down, and when it happens remember where you
heard it first!
