Why do warning labels include the possibility of injury and/or death? Both equipment at my gym and a vending machine that just ate my buck both warned of the possibility. (Rocking or tipping this machine may cause injury and/or death, you're not getting your dollar back sucker!) But how can it be and/or death? Shouldn't it just be or death? I mean, if the vending machine kills me, does it really matter if it also injures me? I mean if it turns out that "if used incorrectly" that weight machine will crush my head and stub my toe, will anyone even notice the "injury?"
