Can someone please explain to me why, when the Stones are still rockin' out the halftime show, Canadian Idol has an age limit of 28?

Where the hell do these people come from? http://msnbc.msn.com/id/11164026/ Is he new? It's not like this is 1980 and it's the first Walkman ever put out. What the hell ever happened to personal responsibility? This is probably the same guy that would launch a lawsuit if Apple did govern the sound levels at 100db. It isn't news that if you turn up the volume on an iPod it gets louder, but you know what? If you turn it down it gets quieter. I mean if he turned it up and little daggers pierced his eardrums, then sure, that isn't exactly the expected behaviour - sue away!

I would love to see a lawsuit against him, for infantilization of a nation. It is people like him that have caused manufacturers to label jars of peanuts with 'may contain nuts' and warn us that our coffee will be hot. *grumble*, *sputter*

I need coffee.
Who does she think she is?

*sends you some coffee with a warning: MAY CONTAIN COFFEE ;^)*

Yeah, that lawsuit is absurd. I'd say 80-90% of music isn't WORTH cranking up to 100 dB! There are people out there who've been legitimately wronged, and can't get a bit of justice, and wussbunnies like that can sue because he has no clue how to turn down the volume?

Maybe I should start suing all those morons that drive around with the windows open, subwoofers pounding out their crap for everyone else to enjoy. Not because of the volume, but because their taste in music usually sucks.

And I too, was astonished at the Stones' performance. I'm surprised no one sues them for still being alive!

Age limit of 28...grumbles....WTF.
