quote:Originally posted by HoffaI didn't find that disturbing at all; it's a reality of what can happen when you work on heavy equipment. People need visual reminders of what can go wrong. I had a kid climb inside a merry-go-round center because he thought he heard a noise. The ride was started by another person and his pant leg caught a turning gear. It pulled him into the center and ripped his pants most of the way off. After a 1/2 hour trying to free him, he was transported to the hospital and recieved about 40 or 50 stitches in his leg. If the ride had turned 1 or 2 more times his arm or leg would have been severed.

What happened to reader responsibility? Or any other form of personal responsibility? If it offends you, don't look. Banning or silencing the voices that offend us only furthers personal responsibility on it's way out the doors of modern society.
quote:Originally posted by Skywheelrider Hey Mick do not let anyone bother you about it. You warned everyone, and from what I understand it was defenitely carnival related. So anyone who objected, well, you had a choice, God gave you the free will to choose, what you do with that choice is your decision. Just like seeing a piece of chocolate cake when you are on a diet, it is your choice whether to stick to the diet and defeat the temptation by not eating it, or forget the diet and choose to eat it, giving in to the temptation. The cake being there became a choice to be made of which action to choose. All you did Mick was provide a choice to be made by the reader, view it or not, and then act on that choice one way or the other, on their own. After that, hey, it is out of your hands. They made the choice on their own, not you for them. [^]
