    Walmart should counter sue the parents for failing to watch their kid.

    Any asshole that lets a 13 year old kid handle a can of gas around
    a gas grille is negligent.

    Try being a fucking parent! I raised 2 kids and neither one hurt
    himself doing dumb shit because we watched them like parents.

    Darwin juuuuust missed. Im surprised they aren't suing the gasoline manufacturer for selling a flammable liquid.

    And this, in a big big way.

    What a fucking shithead. I want to know about this neighbor who apparently died running over?

    I want to believe that this case will get thrown out but I have zero confidence in any rational outcome. It'll probably be settled out of court with the family getting a settlement they don't deserve.

    I don't think I've ever owned a can with such a flame arrestor, and I haven't been blown up yet.

    How morbidly obese was the neighbor who collapsed on his run to help?

    Never mind.

    Why isn't the family guilty of buying a can without a potentially life saving device that they knew existed on other cans?

    It does have a safety device. It's called "empty".

    1. They knew other cans had safeties on them, and bought the cheap one? Way to go, assholes.
    2. Is the family of the dead kid suing the family of the burn victim?

    I'm sure Walmart will settle. I'd like to see them finally stand up against this shit and counter sue for court costs.

    Don't gas cans have those new spigots where you have to push down on something before it pours now... which is a pain in the ass especially if you have to fill something small up like a weed whacker.

    Yes, some do. In fact, I don't think we can get the regular type anymore here in California (I sure haven't seen any in the stores, but I don't spend a lot of time shopping around for gas cans). They're fucking annoying for most uses, and probably a result of a stupid lawsuit like this one.

    I've got some cans I brought with me from Florida that are open-necked. The locking ones are supposed to be smog proof since it seals the vapor in between pouring, but it is quite annoying. For the most part on my small 2 stroke engines I've switched to the canned fuel without all the additive crap because the ethanol in pump gas tears up those little engines.

    All the ones I have seen in ME/MA/NH were the locking spigot design... and note out of the 5 or 6 I have bought over the past say 5 years I have broken 3 spouts... feh.
