Oh FFS are we going to ban iPod's next

MP3 players ‘destroying’ your hearing – 20 Mar 2008 – Politics: New Zealand Political News, Analysis and Comment including 2008 election coverage – NZ Herald

Once you get politicians on the banning bandwagon they just can’t stop their meddling ways. There is now a proposal to put warning labels on mp3 players because they “may” damage your hearing, the proposal also wants to limit the maximum volume they can reach.

This time it isn’t the silly Greens wanting in on the banning action, but Winston Peters.

“I think, more importantly, we should be looking at putting health warnings on these things, just the same as you do on cigarette packets,” he said.

“People think you’re a killjoy because you raise it – but get to the point when you can’t use the phone, get to the point where you can’t hear the microwave, where you can’t hear the stove buzzer … “

Fuck off Winston, ever hear of personal responsibility?

Who cares if you can’t hear the microwave or the stove buzzer? and how the fuck would you know what they sound like anyway? Dickhead!
