We like to blame the lawyers but it is some idiot who goes into their office with the idea they have a case that gets things going.  Ex the infamous McDonalds coffee was too hot case.  It is not just the lawyer who has no shame there.

It definitely takes two to tango.

One thing about the classic coffee case. If you read about it, the coffee was legit way too hot. Like boiling temp. Way beyond where it needed to be. A lot of people assume it was just regular coffee.

I haven’t noticed or heard of any weird behavior or odd upticks in legal but I wouldn’t hear about it in this short term way.  More long term trends trickle down outside of the legal depts, not short term suits.

It's far from new.  In 1974, 2 years before I started with Seven Islands, 2 guys were bar-hopping in NH (takes a lot of miles to hop more than once) until they finally go cut off after a spell in Errol.  Then they headed down Rt 16, not the straightest road, until the driver put his Beetle in the ditch at speed and crashed into the end of a culvert placed for a logging road.  Driver had minor injuries (isn't that the way?) but his chum became a paraplegic and the lawsuits began.  Started with NH DOT as the culvert was within the Rt 16 ROW but NH chose not to entertain the suit - most/all states have that sovereign option.  The bartender in Errol settled out of court, while the badly injured guys lawyers went after Volkswagon of America, James River (road was built to access their forest land) and Seven Island, because JR had to cross a tiny corner of 7-I land (~40') to get to theirs.  After several months 7-I managed to get excluded from the suits, but by then the legal bill was $27,000 - in 1974 dollars.  My 1st year's pay as a graduate forester (started 1st Monday of Jan '76) was $10,000, by far the most I'd ever earned.

Can come out in a year if it bothers me. It's titanium, so shouldn't set off the detector

The plate and 4 screws in my neck from fusion surgery at C-4 are also titanium.  They've been there since April 2011 and I've had no issue with them (including with TSA) though the fusion is long complete and their only function now is to make for pretty X-rays.

I turned the heater on and mine is 84. I hate cold water!

I have an half inch a day leak. Light niche. I’ve had it epoxied before but it’s a lost cause. The pool company is coming next week to put a lexican plastic plate on with a new gasket to seal it off. I’m tired of losing water and having to constantly keep adding salt. 

Just found a hose leak in mine.  Oh well.  Those degrade over a few years

That’s pretty easy to replace. 
My light niche leaked and was epoxied 10 years ago. I had the liner changed last October and I think the epoxy got chipped and started leaking again. I got more putty on it but it’s not going to work. So $2500 to take up pavers, dig it out and replace it, or $250 to cover it. I elected to cover it.

Yeah. The hose is no biggie. I just need to get the new one and drain the pool to the level of the opening then replace and refill then balance etc.  

Your problem is a bit bigger

A friend of mine had a leak in his pool and used flex tape, worked like a charm.

That works depending where it is. Once the plastic light niches start to leak, they’re hard to patch. Mine is cracked on the edge so you can’t build any putty up on it. If you do, the light won’t seat correctly. So I’m basically stuck either replacing it or closing it up.

Dont even get me started on how hot they used to make those little apple pie things.

Broken elbows suck hard. Two more weeks till PT starts. I've got good extension, but flex is stuck at 90 degrees. Awesome metal hardware.

Damn dude, heal well I can relate to the metal. Back and ankle screws and plates. Expect cold and heat to bother you in the area of metal. One of my screws actually loosened in my ankle and they had to replace it with a new model.
