I see this posted frequently (not here mind you):

"We didn't have so many warning labels when I was a kid, because people weren't so stupid back then"

However, if you actually stop to think about it, the converse is actually more likely.

"We have so many warning labels now because people back then WERE so stupid."

In my experience, you only need to warn about something after someone has done the thing no-one thought a right minded person would do.

Interesting thinking ☺

Although I actually think all the warnings are because of just one thing - lawyers
