Who says Law School isn't fun?

That awesome moment in Torts when we're all talking about exploding heads and falling body parts and our professor comes up with this gem:

For wrongful death claims, under the common law, the liability ends with the person who died. So it's much better to kill them than to merely harm them. And for that matter, if you're going to negligently kill someone, kill lots and lots and lots. You won't be held liable. Instead of the slogan "vote early, vote often," in tort law it's kill early kill often. 

This explains so much about torts.
