As the unofficial non-attorney unofficially representing common-sense rational
I bet you are one of those stupid mother fuckers who proudly wears their iPod at the gym and cranks it up so loud that everyone else can hear what you’re playing, even over and above the gym’s loud music and the whirring noise of stairmasters and treadmills. You are probably hoping that the skinny bleached-blonde on the recumbent bike hears the music emanating from inside your skull and thinks you’re a real stud because of it. Sure, maybe she likes superficial deaf guys with no common sense or courtesy. By all means, go for it. But don’t ever fucking blame Apple, Sony, Blaupunkt, Olympus, or any other stereo manufacturer when you aren’t able to hear her shout at the top of her lungs that she isn’t interested in you.
Just because the iPod is powerful enough to play at dangerous levels does not mean you have to operate your music device at a deafening roar. The speedometer in my Ford Taurus goes to 120 mph. Should I be able to sue Ford Motor Co. because I decided to drive so fast in unsafe conditions? Power is a selling point that shows to the capability, durability, and quality of the product. Any idiot knows that comes with some responsibility. Well, anyone but you it seems.
You are a shit-for-brains. Your lawyer smells a big payday for himself. I hope you lose this one.
