I actually remember thinking about this possibility back when I first saw those Red Bull commercials. I find it absolutely appalling that companies
can be sued over something like this. Common sense is lacking in today's world apparently, and in no way does them saying that Red Bull gives you
wings actually harm anyone. If someone was stupid enough to believe that in the first place, then they probably would have tried to jump off the roof
on some other occasion, or done something else to kill or injure themselves by their stupidity.
I get the whole idea of false advertising and whatnot, but there needs to be competent judges in place who, instead of going by the letter of the law,
make common sense decisions tailored to the situation. Frivolous lawsuits, and I definitely feel that this case fits into that category, need to be
dissuaded and eventually stopped. Nowadays you can sue a person or company over just about anything, even when it is your own fault. These companies
are allowed to place their disclaimers in such small print that you cannot read them, yet they allow people to sue for stuff like this. Did the
company place any kind of disclaimer to dissuade stupid individuals from trying to fly? Anyone with any intelligence would understand that the saying
"gives you wings" is not meant to be literal.
