In case you needed further proof that the human race is doomed through stupidity, here are some actual label instructions on consumer goods:

On a Sears hairdryer: Do not use while sleeping. ( I have no other time to dry my hair).

On a bag of Fritos:! ..You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside. (the shoplifter special)?

On a bar of Dial soap: "Directions: Use like regular soap." (and that would be how???....)

On some Swanson frozen dinners: "Serving suggestion: Defrost." ( But, it's "just" a suggestion).

On Tesco's Tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom): "Do not turn upside down." (well.... a bit late huh?)

On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding: "Product will be hot after heating." (...nahhh... Really??...)

On packaging for a Rowenta iron: "Do not iron clothes on body." (but wouldn't this save me more time?)

On Boot's Children Cough Medicine: "Do not drive a car or operate machinery after taking this medication." (We could do a lot to reduce the rate of construction accidents if we could just get those 5-year-olds with head-colds off those forklifts.)

On Nytol Sleep Aid: "Warning: May cause drowsiness." (and.. .I'm taking this because???....)

On most brands of Christmas lights: "For indoor or outdoor use only." (as opposed to... what?)

On a Japanese food processor: "Not to be used for the other use." (now, somebody out there, help me on this. I'm a bit curious.)

On Sunsbury's peanuts: "Warning: contains nuts." (talk about a news flash)

On an American Airlines packet of nuts: "Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts." (Step 3: maybe, Delta?)

On a child's superman costume: "Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly." (I don't blame the company. I blame the parents for this one.)

On a Swedish chainsaw: "Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands or genitals." (..was there a lot of this happening somewhere?)


Its all explainable.

The hot dog one, is just away to get you to buy another package. (they want you to spend more)

    In My Life- The Beatles First line: There are places i remember Weirdest word: ummm... "recall"? Favorite word: Life Favorite lyric: Some forever not for better Least favorite lyric: i don't know... Number of times you've played it: more than 100... Last line: In my life, i love you more Anything else you want to add?: It's my favorite song... ever. The reason i don't know exactly how many times i've played it is because this just my laptop, i have a lot more on my home computer which is not with me at the moment...

    the letters on a keyboard arent in order cause when they first had the tape...if you type too fast the tape like gets caught up and you have to fix they just put the keys in random places .........and the sterilize the needle cause once in a while they have to stop the injection

    that's neat. But they don't make the whole plane out of the black box because it would weigh to much.
