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

    On Tesco's Tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom) -- "Do not turn upside down."
    (well...duh, a bit late, huh!)


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


    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 bulldozers.)


    On Marks &Spencer Bread Pudding -- "Product will be hot after heating."
    (...and you thought????...)


    On a Sears hairdryer -- Do not use while sleeping.
    (That's the only time I have to work on 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???....)


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


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


    On Nytol Sleep Aid -- "Warning: May cause drowsiness."
    (..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 an American Airlines packet of nuts -- "Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts."
    (Step 3: say what?)


    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."
    (Oh my God..was there a lot of this happening somewhere?)

    I've always said stupidity should be painful, very painful.

    Might help to weed out a few of the more intelligence-challenged folks.

      Those are good. I especially chuckled at the one regarding the Fritos. And the Swedish chainsaw, is that for real?

        They should have left the one on the Swedish chainsaw out:

        It would ultimately be helpful to the gene pool.

          The Chainsaw one just goes to prove.....If you're gonna be stupid, you better be tough!!!!
          If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

            When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

              I just have to add this.

              Yesterday was a LONG day. By the time we got home dinner was going to be something quick. We always keep a frozen pizza for just such occassions.

              After I put the pizza in to cook, I happen to read the back of the box. It actually said "Cook pizza before eating"

              You have to be either really stupid or extremely hungry to eat a frozen pizza while it's still frozen. But you know there was someone out there that called in to the manufacturer wanting to know why that pizza tasted so bad and was cold.

                  Today I almost bought some cheese. Then I saw the warning on the wrapper, "Contains milk".

                  Sheesh !

                    I read the list from Carl's link.

                    One toward the bottom gave instructions for taking the cellophane wrapper off the microwave popcorn bag. I actually worked with a moron that popped his popcorn in the microwave with the cellophane still on it.

                    If you think burnt popcorn smells bad, you haven't smelled burnt cellophane popcorn. YUCK!

                      Right now I live in the greater Houston area, which is by Texas standards 'next door', meaning you only have to drive 4 hours, 2 of them being the Houston commute. But yea, I miss the old missions. That's why I made this project.

                      How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

                      The view on the house is nice but that 11 foot 3 ceiling height is killing me....

                      I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
                      Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

                      If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. 😁

                      Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
