Colt Firearms Company manufactures a new pistol. The firing of the pistol depends on an enclosed high-pressure device. The pistol has been thoroughly tested in two laboratories in the Midwest, and its design and manufacture are in accord with current technology. Don buys one of the new pistols from Eagle Gun Emporium. When Don uses the pistol in the high altitude of the Rocky Mountains, the difference in pressure causes the pistol to misfire, injuring Don. Colt can prove that all due care was used in the manufacturing process, and it refuses to pay for Wayne's injuries. On what ground might Don most successfully base a suit against Colt to recover for his injuries?

While Avery and Ida Zehmer, husband and wife, were drinking with W.O. Lucy, Mr. Zehmer made a written offer to sell a 471-acre farm the Zehmers owned to Lucy for $50,000. Zehmer contends that his offer was made in jest and that he only wanted to bluff Lucy into admitting that he did not have $50,000. Instead, Lucy appeared to take the offer seriously, offered $5 to bind the deal, and had Mrs. Zehmer sign it. When the Zehmers refused to perform the contract, Lucy brought this action to compel specific performance of the contract. Is this contract enforceable? [Lucy v. Zehmer 84 S.E. 2d 516 (Va. App. 1954)]
