    Unrelated, but I heard a story yesterday about how a suicidal woman jumped off a building, and hit a man on the ground. The man sued the building, claiming the roof fencing was insufficient, failing to prevent her from jumping and resulting in his injury.

    He lost, at least.

    thankfully he lost... could you imagine the precedent that would be set by that kind of lawsuit...?

    Someone fell out of the parking trams last year at Disneyland. She suffered from a fractured skull.

    Fractured skull? Sounds like she already had a head start. You have to be a numbskull to fall off the tram.

    If you fall off of a tram it's thinning of the heard. Natural selection.

    Well I am still surprised they were not there before. One dude airlifted the other lady in a coma now requires 24 hour medical care. I think Disney went the right direction and improved the safety of the trams.

    Naw, haven't been on a tram since 1991. Just enjoyed Launches dry humor.

    Re: New Tram doors

    yeh... i know... it is pretty funny... you think maybe it is more for people trying to jump on a moving tram than people falling off...

    stupidity always shows that people dont think how hurt they can get doing something when they dont get the opportunity to think...

    when sitting on the tram... "hey maybe i can jump off... um... no... that would hurt..."

    trying to jump on a moving tram... "i want to go home...! owww...! maybe i should have waited for the next one..." yeh...

    Thirty glorious years, two stupid injuries (that have been noteworthy). The odds are in favor of the smart and careful.

    Still, it only takes one dope, intentionally or otherwise, to spoil it for the rest of us and Disney doesn't want to risk a major law suit that'll turn the parks into Disney-Smith World or something.
