The ironic thing about common sense is that it's not really common...

Hey Slender! :D
You okay?

Yup! I have indeed hugged a cactus. I wanted to see if it really hurt all that much or if people are just pansies! It did, but not quite as much as I expected.
I've.... never eaten one before... but hey, i'll eat anything.

Nah, it's fine. X)

If you want to get on the subject of stupid warnings then I could go on for hours.

I actually didn't do bad, all things considered. 88 average, which is average.

I just went down from a 91 to an 88 in Calculus. I think doing my Calc homework after hours on PC at midnight was a bad idea. D=

The fruit or the plant? Both of them are edible, although not a lot of people ever eat the plant.

Such a masochist haha. ;D I did the same thing with a really sharp knife and scared some people, which was funny.

My mom found a label on a curling iron that said "Do not use while sleeping". What.

Both brought up Catholic. Not gonna speak for him but for me, there's not everything that I believe, but I like lent because it teaches me personally to appreciate things or have things in moderation. For lent you don't always have to give up something, you can do something extra instead. I like some traditions and I hate others. I also like some teachings from other religions too. I wouldn't call myself Catholic now, but I was brought up as one and I like some of the traditions.

No, but it grows fruit.



They are most commonly called Prickly Pears. Some people just call them cactus fruit though.

As for why they are called prickly pears, see the white spots on them? Like the cactus, the fruit gets needles too. Those white spots are where they grow. If you don't clean off or cut out those spots well... then you'll be calling the pricky pear the "Oh god kill me now" fruit.

Oh, God, are/were we talking about warning labels for things that should be common sense or warning labels that just plain don't make any sense at all?

RINKWORKS TO THE RESCUE!!!

Quote:
"Warning: This product can burn eyes." -- On a curling iron.

"Caution: The contents of this bottle should not be fed to fish." -- On a bottle of shampoo for dogs.

"Caution: Shoots rubber bands." -- On a product called "Rubber Band Shooter."

"Do not look into laser with remaining eye." -- On a laser pointer (:\ WAT?)

"Do not use for drying pets." -- In the manual for a microwave oven. (What's scary about this and some others is that they wouldn't put these labels on unless someone had already done it)
Here's some more:

Given the shape of the object and the idiocy of some people I'm kinda suprised that it does say what else it could burn. If you know what I mean.

Forgetting a classic though... Oh a Hersheys almond bar... Warning: Contains nuts.

Here are some amusing ones-

Spoiler:


Windex
Do not spray in eyes.

Toilet Plunger
Caution: Do not use near power lines.

Dremel Electric Rotary Tool
This product not intended for use as a dental drill.

Arm & Hammer Scoopable Cat Litter
Safe to use around pets.

Bowl Fresh
Safe to use around pets and children, although it is not recommended that either be permitted to drink from toilet.

I found these saved to my computer. I think I had dug them up around the internet.

Edit
Here have some more.
Spoiler:

Fire Extinguisher:
Caution: Non-Flamable

Earplugs
These ear plugs are nontoxic, but may interfere with breathing if caught in windpipe

Mattress
Warning: Do not attempt to swallow

Matches
Caution: Contents may catch fire.

Pepper Spray
Caution: Never aim spray at your own eyes.

Auto-Shade Windshield Visor
Warning: Do not drive with sunshade in place. Remove from windshield before starting ignition.


I need to stop reading these. D: I didn't get enough sleep last night and was busy today. I'm overly tired these are hysterical because of it, to the point where I'm getting on my own nerves by being so amused.

The pepper spray makes sense. Like all those comedies where they show something not working, the person turns it around to check it out, and then it works in their face. If you press it and it's not working, then you turn it around to see if the spray is clogged, you might accidentally spray it.

I took two years of computer engineering. Our class was the one that fixed all of the computers for Votechs other classes.

We actually had a lot of those printed out and hung on the wall. The idea was that everytime we had a situiation just like, or similar, to one we would mark that one out. By the end of the year, everything was marked out.

Some people wonder why a lot of IT guys are *******s. That site is a big fat list of reasons why.

Oh god I almost lost it on the toilet plunger one. Here's my favorite computer stupidity:

Customer: "My laptop won't boot."
Tech Support: "Have you tried rebooting?"
Customer: "I can't reboot, because it doesn't boot in the first place."
Tech Support: "Sir, we have to do things my way, okay?"

They probably didn't even have anything beyond reboot. They just transfer you from support guy to support guy until you give up.
