Out of the Blue

Just when I think that I've seen the silliest of the safety warnings that fill our everyday lives, I found one that takes the cake. This morning I noticed a small sticker on the power cord on an electric shaver, which I assumed would warn against dunking it in water. I took a look, and it was actually a silhouette of a scissors cutting the cord covered by the red "no-no" bar... That's right, it is warning not to cut the power cord.

This is more of HuffPo's anti-science garbage
Boob shots and some political coverage.
Anything to do with science - they are the poison of stupid.

Enjoy This Evisceration

Why worry about it then? If they are the "poison of stupid" then only smart people like you will be left. That's evolution for ya.
