Hand-ripping death packaging

As much as I hate our overly litigious society sometimes, I think that I'd be pretty happy if someone bought something packaged in one of those super-hard plastic shells, cut their hand on the packaging, sued the manufacturer, and won. Maybe if a few people sucked a few big chunks of cash from major corporations they'd stop using that damned impossible-to-open plastic for every random product that doesn't need it.

Aren't lawsuits the only way things get done in this country anyway?

Hear hear.

I hate those goddamn things. The only way to open it is to destroy it.

Those things are annoying. And trust me, they don't stop people from stealing the items in them. Thieves know just how to rip into them to get the product.
