So I’m sure you’ve seen all those pictures on www.wiihaveaproblem.com that depict people getting hurt while they’re drinking and playing with their wii (along with people who are just plain stupid and don’t understand that you can’t wave your arms around where you don’t have room to and not hit something). You might notice a strong similarity to these pictures and pictures on places like www.break.com, www.ebaumsworld.com and the like. What’s the difference between stupidity with a Wii in your hand and just plain stupidity?
You can’t sue yourself because you were stupid and punched through your own wall while you were drunk/mad/emo. You can’t sue yourself because you were stupid enough to shatter your cellphone by throwing it across the room (again while drunk/mad/emo). However, it’s only a matter of time before people start suing the company of an instrument they were holding onto WHILE being drunk/mad/emo and and punching through walls (or TV) and other such nonsense.
I’ve been keeping my eyes peeled for alcohol-related Wii lawsuits, because at the rate that people are blaming their wiimote for wrecking their homes/tvs/body parts, it’s only a matter of time before some dumbass thinks they are entitled to a share of Nintendo’s profits, because they were holding onto a Nintendo product while committing acts that should have them shot in the name of natural selection.
The internet is creating a legion of idiots that sympathize with each other about improperly using a piece of plastic and destroying expensive objects. All I ask is that you do your part in the name of humanity and evolution to try to explain to them what a dumbass they actually are.
