Here you go all the talk about lets put sprinklers in new homes
because where building them cheaper.
But what about making mobile homes safer which unfortunately with all
the costs of trying to buy a new home more people are opting to go to
mobile homes .
Once again our code geniuses have produced the exact opposite of what
they want to produce.

And what will happen to the price of those mobile home if they are safer?

You are proposing the exact same thing as the sprinkler industry lobby,
adding stuff to make some home safer, and of course it will make the price
go higher, every thing have a cost.

So are for or against sprinkler in home? or in mobile home??

I think the new British law enacted on Jan 1st 2011 to prevent tea break
injuries documented in the link below is possibly going a little too far.
The new law requires all business's with 5 or more employees to enforce the
use of sipping lids on tea and coffee cups to prevent scalding injuries
whilst
dunking biscuits (cookies) in hot beverages, apparently almost a third of
working adults in the UK have suffered such an injury, in addition employers
must also provide safety glasses to all their employees to prevent the 3% of
workers who suffer eye injury after accidentally poking themselves in the
eye
with a biscuit(cookie).
Airlines will also have to comply when they enter British airspace, although
for some reason restaurants & cafes are currently exempt from the law.

A second part to the law regarding the banning of open hot beverage
containers in households with children under the age of 14 is due to be
enacted later this year, this will require the use of sipping lids on all
tea & coffee mugs in such households, its unclear at the moment exactly how
this law will be enforced

And there you have it.

Down the slippery slope.

The next step is to require that all drinkable liquid containers must
have an unremoveable plastic nipple.

Then, after that, all drinkable liquids must be ingested under the
supervision of a government trained liquidologist.

Finally, drinkable liguids will only be administered intravenously at
stratigically placed liguidology stations by a government "highly
trained"doctor of liquidology.

Ingesting liquids in any other way is a misdemenor punishable by fine
or inprisonment or both.

Non payment of your property taxes will be reason to withhold your
daily ration of liquid.

Hmm, I think I might be in favour of that idea, how realistic do you think
the nipple will be?

Jim's obsessions with "nipples" and "slippery slopes" are legendary.
And you're asking how realistic it will be?!?  :-)

I can see sprinklers in trailers before homes. any day have put enough
trailer fires out and nothing was left.
and a trailer could be done cheap and easy compared to a home.
