I think they used to torture people w/ these in the 1300's.

The ambulance chasers have already lined up . . .

Remember MacDonald's steaming hot cup of coffee??  Civil law in the US has never been the same since that one.
The younger folks will have to look it up.

One of the neighbor kids had something like that.
Brass, non-adjustable.
Don't remember him playing guitar OR banjo.

My cello teacher told me that my 58 yr old hands would never stretch enough to make a proper "grip" on the cello. She demonstrated by sticking wine corks between my fingers until they were correctly spread.

She was right. It was suddenly easy to play...and no amount of stretching was going to fix my hand...

Really hard to pick with that thing on. Specially when you got them on both hands.

You mean the coffee that McDonald's continued to serve at 190 degrees after over 200 complaints of serious injury, which resulted to third degree burns to the genitals of a woman in her 70s who sued them originally for $20,000 to cover medical bills and was offered $800 by McDonald's?

If any "younger folks" want to look it up, feel free, but the long and short of it is that a billion dollar multinational corporation was willingly negligent and didn't change until a court case forced them to. 

It had zero effect on "civil law" in the USA.
