Thank you for the sentiment, but I wouldn't get your hopes up that it will stick.

I even drove it through an honest to goodness tornado once (not on purpose of course, but when one unexpectedly passes overhead you don&#39;t much choice but to hang on). My car was purchased pre-dented, so I don&#39;t need to fret shopping carts in the parking lot. As numerous owners can attest, I let anyone who wants drive it (I even let someone who didn&#39;t know anything about shifting gears borrow it once -- oops). #5939 may be many things, but a porcelain doll it is not.

> In America, anyone can be sued at any time for any reason. This is a case that was in the news while I was at DMA FFT&#39;11: http://www.washingt onpost.com/ local/fairfax- woman-cleared- in-trial- over-unscooped- dog-poop/ 2011/10/25/ gIQAGmFyGM_ story.html Ridiculous of course, but as you see it actually went before a jury. If you are going to live in America, you had better learn to live with the possibility of being sued. Either you are going to quiver in constant fear, or you are going to take prudent steps to avoid it and simply deal with it if it happens.
> 
> There are a couple of useful analogies to the threat of being sued. One is the threat of terrorism. In Israel, terrorism is a neverending threat. Any person can be a victim of terrorism at any time. The Israeli&#39;s take prudent steps to minimize that threat, but they don&#39;t quiver in constant fear and stop living normal lives because of it. Another analogy is the threat of being shot. Americans purchase slightly more than half the guns produced every year, and the United States has slightly less than half the global civilian gun arsenal (per capita estimates of American gun ownership range from 1 in 7 to 1 in 9). Any American can be shot at any time for any reason. Concealed carry laws mean you can&#39;t even tell who may or may not be packing heat, but we don&#39;t stop living normal lives because of it.
