It's Completely Ridiculous ...
... that garbage like this even makes it before a judge. Some assclown is suing NBC for $2.5 million because he allegedly became physically ill while watching an episode of Fear Factor. From the complaint:
"To have the individuals on the show eat (yes) and drink dead rats was crazy and from a viewer's point of view made me throw-up as well an another in the house at the same time. NBC is sending the wrong message to its TV watchers that cash can make or have people do just about anything beyond reasoning (sic) and in most cases against their will."Hey jackass, here's a suggestion: change the fucking channel.
In any event, I would love to see the court step up here and sanction this guy's attorney. Unfortunately, it'll never happen. Guess when you start letting folks recover millions of dollars for spilling hot coffee on themselves, just about any type of complete and utter nonsense is fair game.
