Warning labels that had to be put on products due to people obviously having no shred on common sense when using them..


We're probably the only species that goes to such lengths to avoid natural selection. Such a shame.


I once saw a warning label about not licking an electrical outlet. The first thought in my head was "who would be stupid enough to want to" then I remembered Jackass' existence and the intelligence of the crew who put the show together (as well as the fact it was a hit). We must be the only race of species of animal that finds humor in the pain of our fellows.

There was a giant rented dumpster when I was helping empty a house a while ago, and one of the large warning labels on its side was indicating that you shouldn't leap into it head first... Talk about taking the term, "Dumpster Diving" a little too literally.

Hey, at least we get some entertainment out of it.

The way I see it, some people were born to flip patties and some were born to entertain the masses. It might suck, but it's just the way it is.

I knew a "braintrust" that used to have dumpster races riding in them down hills at the construction site they worked. I can kind of understand that warning .

We had a death out this way on Fourth of July. A few guys got drunk and decided to launch one of them by fireworks like in a Bugs Bunny Cartoon. He was DOA and all his friends could say was "it seemed like a good idea at the time".

If I was drunk I'd probably think that's pretty awesome too.

And I've seen a lot in construction of people with no common sense and doing stupid things. And i think to myself where the have these people came from and how they have no common sense at all!

I'm not sure if your talking about Devon but the sad thing is this guys mom is pushing for fire work control instead of blaming her kid for drinking and launching a fire work off his head.

Yup, that's the guy. Our local news told the story a bit different.

You know, if your kid hits 22 years of age then thinks jamming explosives on his head is a good thing, I'm gonna blame the parent.
