Catch him giving an oscar worthy performance in this

It's an ever-shifting line in the sand of human stupidity, a vague cultural boundary defining how much we expect our products and corporations to protect us from ourselves and how much we're willing to be answerable for our actions, a line dividing how logic-impaired we're willing to admit we sometimes are and how responsible a given corporation should be for dumping shoddy and/or dangerous products on the market without warning.
excessive labeling a release from liability? Is it killing off common sense or the need to have common sense?
the Virtual Reality tour!
