Someone once asked me what my sign was. I said "Do not disturb".

my curling iron had a warning label that said that it was not intended for internal use.....

For every warning label there is a person who caused it to be needed.

They feel that they have to protect people with low common sense from themselves. Next thing you know they'll have warning labels on food: Warning the contents of this package may represent a choking hazard.

Remove all the warning labels, let nature take it's course.
Problems solved.

Directions are just as bad...

Conditioner - Use Daily for extra body and volume
Dawn - Removes stuck on Fat and Grease...

What came first? The stupid warning or the stupid person?


Sadly, you already know the answer.

Apple pie should definitely come with a warning sign.

Lawyers and claim-hungry parasites have brought us to this. "Where there's blame, there's a claim!"

I've got traffic cones round the bath, a life-vest and a panic alarm. There's a tick-sheet and liability disclaimer that must be signed before entering the room.

"WARNING DO NOT STRIKE HARD OBJECTS WITH THIS HAMMER"


your confusion is caused by you and the hammer manufacturer using a different deffinition of " hard object "

you probally think that nails etc etc are " hard objects "

whereas the hammer manufacturer REALLY means :

the faces of OTHER hammers , files , HSS drillbits etc etc

because they can shatter and cause injury through flying shrapnel

hope that clears that one up

It is easy to understand why we need these reminders that people actually don't usually read.

Think of the person with an average dose of common sense. It's just average.

Now remember that 50% of people are dumber than that.

Think what happens as you get closer to the bottom 20%

"I am not stupid therefore someone else is responsible for my stupidity. They must pay!"

Yes I know that what the manufacturer meant was hitting something made of hardened steel with a hardened steel hammer can cause problems but this is a sign fo idiots is it not?

To the casual idiot a nail is hard so should they hammer it?

I remember commuting on suburban trains and reading notices which began with the words;
"It is normally safer to remain on the train".
Obviously one wondered how many people needed this advice not to jump off while the train was moving.
Further down the notice, it became clear that they meant "in the event of an emergency".
