As seen today in bold print, on the warning label on the Roundup I mercilessly sprayed on weeds growing in the cracks in my sidewalk:

Do not spray on plants you like. They will die.

Indeed.

I think more warning labels need to be done in this style, for instance:

That silly warning label on cups of coffee that currently reads "Careful, contents may be hot." It should be replaced with Do not spill on legs you like. They will die.

Warnings on razor blades that currently say something along the lines of "Contents may be sharp" or "Cutting hazard" should simply state Do not cut veins or arteries you like. You will die.

Plain simple warnings about dangerous things (romantic comedies, MTV shows, politicians, etc., etc.) would make the world a better place.

Far too much common sense.

You will die.

Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future. H.G. Wells

I was at a friends house in high school, and we were preparing pop-corn for the microwave and I happened to see the instructions so I decided to read them. The first instruction was to remove the bag from it's plastic wrapping.

The bag was folded in such a way that the instructions were not visible while the bag was wrapped.

We read the label on my son's pajamas once and it said something like:

Garment should fit snugly. This garment is not flame resistant. Loose-fitting garment is more likely to catch fire.

We teased him that it meant he would burst into flames if his pajamas were too big, he still mentions it.
