  • You went into a haunted house, got scared, ran, tripped and fell. And now you're suing?

    Yeah, I'm SURE the jury will be sympathetic to your cause.
  • I ran a JC haunted house years ago. we ran people outside the back door and had them are a turn to miss the pond next to the door. There was a group of high school kids that jumped over our makeshift fence and fell in the pond. One of them twistd his ankle in the hurdle.


    Another time one of my cast members got hit in the nose by some boy and bloodied it. We beat him pretty good Didn't get sued either.

    well, juries are stupid in general, sadly.
  • Was the girl fat and clumsy, and wearing improper footwear?
    These things matter.

    She was scared and running from a guy with a chainsaw chasing her. Grace leaves the room when you almost pee on yourself (hearing a patron say "I just peed all over myself" is the gold star standard of a HH).
  • Was in a haunted house with my kids a long time ago and one room was pitch black. Said out loud that I was going to light my butane lighter on full.
    Was escorted out with many flashlights. Good times.
  • When I visit a haunted house I expect to see lots of reflective tape to make grade changes in flooring easy to see, good lighting, appropriately placed handrails and signage warning of any possible hazards along the route. Some carefully stationed ushers can be quite helpful to the very old, very young and infirm as well. Also, clearly marked exits.

    Why don't you just go the the local Wal-Mart instead of a haunted house? They have all that, and ample lighting as well. And it's a much more frightening experience.

    Shambling mounds need handrails?

    Ones like this should be easy- medical expenses liability insurance covers it, no court case, the end. But that's not how we work in this country.
  • Good pics from a haunted house:

    Niagara Falls Nightmares fear factory

    God it makes me laugh.
  • This makes it make a LITTLE more sense ... "Model"

    (Pretty sure a youtube link doesn't break Fark rules ... guess I'll find out)
  • how old is she? is she is 16-17 and has had a part time job or worked every summer since she was 14 i'd say go for it. on the other hand how much could you get for that compared to the giant douchiness look this gives you?
  • She works in the mines and can't survive a haunted house?
  • I wanted to go to a haunted corn maze; that way, if you get scared you can just eat your way out.


    /corn maiz?
  • suing the Alton American Legion

    yeah, good luck with that. those guys are like the mildly retarded and easily angered version of Masons.

    / Tubal Cain!
  • Haunted houses are stupid, and the people who go to them are stupid.

    Be less stupid - it hurts less.

    (Pretty sure a youtube link doesn't break Fark rules ... guess I'll find out)


    Oh... She's a model.
    I had assumed she was a hooker.
    Dad ought to go after whoever's been selling her all gthe Big Macs, too.
  • If she actually were an able-bodied person, she wouldn't have been such a clumsy dumbfark who can't master the art of walking down a hallway.

  • If they win, place a plaque at every city park with this family's name on it stating that they took the money that would have made the park better.

    Not true; I'm (basically) able bodied but occasionally trip going UP stairs or the like. Brain signals don't always get to the feet correctly; probably too many knocks on the noggin'.

    However since the article is appropriately vague, there's no way to know her condition before or after. I want to know how badly she was hurt and what medical treatment was required; until then this is like mocking the McDonalds coffee thing without knowing the details. Either she bruised her shin and head (for example) or she broke her nose/cut her face/broke something else etc. Can't tell from the article of course.
  • That girl was never going to make money as a model unless it was the type of "modeling" one finds in a backpage classified.

    Yep. All the donuts are showing already.

    and that would be the fault of the people who put the haunted house together how?

    They are? I would love to see the research on the issue of this and not just the silly anecdotes as the research on the topic does the demonstration that they tend to provide the decisions upon which are the consistencies with the judges so you sort of do the life failing.
