    So in a stoned moment I had this idea. I've already put out an ad and got some replies. They start on Monday.

    What do you guys think?

    It just occurred to me that if they hurt themselves, am I liable for anything?

    Depends on what kind of set-up you have. Judging by your idea, I doubt you have any contract in place with the "roller-bladers" that covers you in the event that they hurt themselves, in which case, if they do, and they push a suit on you, you could theoretically be liable.

    On a side note, I had people do leaflet delivery for me, the action rate was absolutely disgusting. Common sense would've told me that of those who actually pick-up the leaflet, 95% of them will throw it away, and of the 5% who keep it in the possibility of using it at some later date, a very minimal amount will actually convert.

    Alas, I busted over $800 on leaflets + delivery. I ended up having to burn over 6000 overstocked leaflets, as the cost of delivery just wasn't worth it (I was paying roughly $8 an hour).
