    To expose oneself to hazardous materials isn't a good idea, but why not file a lawsuit against DuPont?

    What would be the point to point out that Dupont dumps dangerous chemicals into our environment daily, disinterested that their deeds are damaging to our dear lives?

    So what do you suggest--not do anything?

    How about, do away with DuPont by not buying their products?

    Why are you singling out DuPont, when there are so many companies with worse records?

    Besides... if we boycott all of DuPont's products, wouldn't we all be naked and living in unpainted empty houses with no food?

    You mean beyond a paradise where people are treated fairly, wealth is distributed somewhat evenly among the people and the government doesn't kowtow to the interests of the select few, while ignoring the pressing needs of the many?

    Are you trying to distract us from the plight of the oppressed?

    Aren't "the oppressed" just a figment of the imaginations of Karl Marx and his Commie followers?

    Does anyone ever use the word "figment" with any other word besides imagination and what is a "figment" anyway?

    Isn't it obvious it means the intentions of a fig?

    What if you don't give a flying fig?

    Who cares? But if a whole nation gave a flying fart about figs that would be worrying, wouldn't it?

    Wouldn't it be just plain fearsome?

    Are any of you as curious as I am about kdnxr's question about using the word "figment" with anything other than "imagination "?

    No, but did I mention how much I love Fig Newtons?

    Why are they called Fig Newtons, did they fall on his head, thus implanting the idea of gravity, or something?

    Aren't they those things that leave purple stains when people throw them at Wayne Newton?

    Why all the newfangled weights and measures, can't we just stick with an old ton?
