not to harsh the mellow of your very entertaining thread, but ... we learned the truth of this one on 9-11-01.Warning #24: No Fly Zone
Seen on materials for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000: "Warning! This program should not be used in flight training! Death or serious injury could result!"
Love this one. The best peice of advice I've had all day.Robert Clear said:I once heard of a well-meaning warning in the instructions for an iron:
"Do not iron clothes whilst wearing them."
Turns out... it's pretty good advice.
Now they tell me.Seen on a chainsaw: "Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands or genitals"
The ladder label case is quite famous...I remember when it happened. Apparently someone put a ladder up on pile of frozen manure which then thawed....Ann in Arlington said:The sad thing is that some of those warnings are probably required as part of a settlement because someone did the stupid thing being warned against.
Ed's ladders have some really remarkable ones!
