I believe that in Nebraska, or Omaha at least, the public schools are funded primarily by parking meters, tickets, towing fees, and the like.
yea lawsuits seem ridiculous, like a construction worker suing for back problems from using a jackhammer, or a bartender suing for 2nd hand smoke
issues (back when you could smoke in such places.) I mean, duh.
sports are obviously hazardous to your health, so's skydiving. and as you mentioned, the military.
so are roller coasters, driving a car, riding a bike, having sex, or just getting out of bed in the morning. my metal bed frame jabs my ankles often.
that's life, i mean someone posted about the athletes who would take life-shortening drugs to play better - i.e., the general consensus is that a
good short life is better than a long boring one.
and so be it. i tend to agree. i have a few guilty (and possibly life-shortening pleasures) of my own, and i don't plan to cease them anytime soon.
