    When you read these you just gotta know they had someone in mind when they wrote these up...My nephew comes to mind as one of them..

    What you really need to remember is someone got hurt using these products inappropriately. Typically warnings are added after some Darwin Award Winner uses them wrong and gets seriously hurt or killed. The bridge notation reminded me of a blonde joke my wife told me:

    Two blonde women decided they were going to show their outdoor enthusiast/hunter husbands that they were made of some stern stuff. They discussed how to do this, and settled on going bear hunting. Driving up the mountain they came across a sign that read: "BEAR LEFT". Despondent, the women turned around and went home.

    Back when SNL was actually funny (the days of Belushi, Ackroyd, etc) they did a skit on "Mainway Toys" that always had me laughing my butt off - using a plastic bag over the head - "Johnny Space Helmet", and a blade-equipped teen punk 'boyfriend' for Barbie - "Johnny Switchblade". I always figured the guys writing that had some interesting earlier experiences.

    A lot of these warnings are simply a sad statement on "The Nanny State".

    Of course you know that other than care and handling instructions the only warning label found on a crate of dynamite reads

    "Dynamite" comes in various packaging, and is basically no longer produced for General Purpose Blasting. There are some Special Use versions still in production, but typically what most folks know as "Dynamite", is in Reality an Ammonia Nitrate based Energetic Material, classed as a Blasting Agent, and NOT a High Explosive. One of the few "Specialty" Dynamite variants still in production is the tried and true, "Red Cross 40" (Red Cardboard or Paper rolled 1"-2" X 12" sticks) or Ditching Powder. This is 40% Nitroglycerin and has a very high Brissaence and Detonation Velocity. It is commonly used to make ditches, (hence the Term "Ditching Powder) and sticks are laid on the ground along the ditch line, about every 3 feet, and when the one on the end is capped, and then detonated, the shockwave travels from one, to the next, and detonates each stick in series, forming the basic Ditch. All the is required after is to run a Backhoe down it, straddling the ditch, and cleaning it out a bit. Instant Ditch, for the most part.

    :lol: I'm with ya' there - I always laugh at those and wonder if the initial problem is really bad enough to chance all of the "cure's" potential side effects.
