Is shoe safe?

I saw a family walking and the child had shoes that light up when she steps on them! I told the parents they have to buy her new shoes immediately before they catch fire, burn their house down, and spread through the whole neighborhood. But they were to cheap to replace them and they leave the shoes unattended overnight despite my plea. The argument goes...they haven't burned yet so it's not a risk.

am I too paranoid and unreasonable?

You just need some duct tape.

@HeyItsSara there's another thread here in foo, Is Laptop Safe? Read it and then this one. We have some folks here like @indyfabz and @njkayaker who eagerly await the next thread about safety practices, and I don't want to test their patience.
