Anyone who thinks government regulation IMPROVES things hasn’t bought a gas can lately.
I mean, heck, I grew up in a world where the nastiest statement about someone’s capability for a task was “He couldn’t pour piss out of a boot with instructions on the heel.”
And yet, through the magic of government regulation, in order to pour a liquid out of a plastic jug they’ve come up with a gas can configuration that actually requires detailed instructions with five illustrations.
Pretty sure the new “safety” spouts are a fitting metaphor for government regulation in general. Even IF their intentions are good, they’re at best ineffective if not counterproductive.
They say a camel is a horse designed by a committee. Safety spouts are the same. In the process of saving you from yourself, they only make you less safe while simultaneously decreasing effective use.
On the bright side, when you get pissed and decide to burn it, it’s already full of gas.
