That is not what a ground wire is for. Not even in the slightest. That is a side-effect/benefit of having a ground wire, not the reason to have one.

I mean if you don't mind messing up the cord some just pull the ground out of the plug, it will work the same as this does, effectively just sending ground to empty plastic

Can you elaborate? I've used these or pulled the ground altogether many times without issue. Am I just waiting to burn alive in my sleep or what?

Possibly, it's not really a big deal in the USA or in areas where your electricity is stable. The grounding plays a bigger role in third world countries where the electricity isn't as clean/stable as ours here. If your outlet is providing more electricity than your device can handle, there will be a static electricity buildup on the device and when you touch it, you'll feel shocks because you will then become the ground. In essence, the ground pin keeps your electronics safe from static electricity buildup. This is more obvious on an aluminum MacBook.

You don't need a ground wire until you need a ground wire. A ground wire is used to trip the breaker in the even of a fault/short. Without it, the breaker will not trip and you have a shock/fire hazard. As long as the device that is plugged in and its wiring are all in good order, the ground will never be used. However, you don't truthfully know the condition of the internals of the device or the wiring so the potential for problems always exists. The risk of it being an issue is very low, but it exists.
