Maybe they got the idea from The Office.

"A person dumb enough to drink Minwax, bleach and paint thinners, or drive with a sun screen in place, is probably also too dumb to read. In that case, warning labels are a waste." -- Walter Williams Maybe we ought to change the name from "alcohol," so these people won't be stupid enough to drink wood alcohol, rubbing alcohol, etc. For the latter, I propose "Rubbing Holy Shit, You Do NOT Want To Drink This!"

I'd prefer not to protect the dumb people any more than we already are. We have enough of them as it is.

Yes, change the name to Rubbing Tasty Drink. I just puked up a bunch of ethanol after reading this.

You know, the whole idea of Escape From New York is sounding better and better every day. Let's just take a state and build a wall around it and dump idiots in it. - Colton

I know this should go in the commercials thread, but there's a new car commercial where they show cars driving on buildings. There is a disclaimer that says something like "Obvioulsy this is fantasy. Cars can't drive on buildings" Posted Image

Come on! I want people to try and do this! I want some moron to drive off the roof of a parking garage, thinking his car can scale the walls!!! Posted Image

I remember reading a short story where the lead character hired his illiterate and very hard drinking enemy to transport a barrel of "alcohol" somewhere, not telling him that it was wood alcohol. Good concept, but I can't remember the name of the story or the author.

Unfortunately, I think the real problem is that we destroyed the process a few generations back.Posted Image

Seems to me that the guy hadn't misunderstood anything. He got the effect he was after.

Idiots are one thing, but children get ahold of this stuff too. Labels wouldn't help to warn THEM, but at least a clearer warning might help to make adults more aware of an easily-overlooked danger, so that they might be more encouraged to keep the products out of reach or have them so that they're only usable with adult supervision. (And, as a health care worker myself, I do indeed encourage their use. We use them at work, and I have them all over my house...but there are rarely any children in my house, and never any without direct supervision.)

From snopes:

According to the above item, the taste of Purell is "akin to a slightly flowery version of vodka." I can definitely imagine that attracting some desparate adults as well.

Kids like chocolate, they also make high tech candy (like plastic cell phones with candy inside), so should my Chocolat DVD have a warning label?? Won't kids eat the DVD, thinking it's chocolate?

Or does the Darwin rule not apply to kids? Posted Image
