Heard while discussing a textbook problem re: a case involving a kid who got hurt on a playground:
Student: "We need to bring back more biological Darwinism. These plaintiffs are the same parents who put 8 inches of clothes on their kids when they see snow flurries. They need to get over themselves and just let their kids get hurt a little bit."
Prof: "Well, this kid has brain damage...I'm not sure if they can afford to let him get hurt like that."
Student: "He won't do it again, will he?"
