Thread: Silly things I think about........

    Silly things I think about........

    Hi,

    This will be the first in a series of silly questions I ponder during the day.

    I would like your thoughts about these things.

    I have made no effort to research any of them because they are stupid

    Why are there directions on a toothpaste box ?

    The instructions are there because the number of stupid consumers is equally matched by attorneys looking for some manufacturer to sue when someone gets injured using a product in some generally unreasonable manner. There is a legal theory called "foreseeable risk" about which a manufacturer is required to warn of potential harm, even though no "moderately bright" person would think to use the product in such a manner. So their lawyers advise them to put lots of print on the boxes and in the packages in the hopes it will reduct the number of times they might be sued.

    Actually, it's a full employment policy for attorneys. They advise the companies what to warn against, and they sue on behalf of the people who mannage to injured themselves when they use a product in a manner which no reasonable person would have used it.

    For example, toothpaste has a mild abrasive in it and should not be put in the eyes and rubbed. Yet some people manage to do that with sufficient frequency that they probably warn against doing so, so they can say, "we warned you not to do that!"

    Regards,

    So if it's for external use only, what's that screw on syringe like thingy for?

    Oh yeah, fashion models use it for reducing the bags under their eyes before hitting the catwalk too... lots of uses.

    BWAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAA...........

    Prep H does have a screw on ass applicator.
    I know because I am old.
    (dont even think about it you bastards)

    As for the whole toothpaste attourney thing...........(notice the euro spelling).

    That might be all and well with things that have multiple uses BUT,
    It says TOOTH paste on the box and the tube.
    Where else would you use it ?

    If Prep H said "Ass medicine", I could understand that.
    Then again, I cant really imagine another use for that stuff.

    I mean, If I had a headache I wouldnt look in the medicine chest and think, "hey it relieves ass pain so it must relieve head pain".
    The instructions indicate what it is used for.
    If you cant follow the directions then you are shit out of luck.

    Errrrrrrrrr.....................
    As you can tell I have little tolerance for idiots .

    So who else has an opinion about this?

    Apply to hair, lather vigorously - rinse out - repeat.

    Does anyone really repeat, if so the instructions should be two fold - 1. Apply to hair, lather vigorously - rinse out - repeat.
    2. See 1.

    Seems to me I wrote some code like that once.

    Actually, if you've never used shampoo and never seen it used it can be tricky too. For example, would you guess that applying it to wet hair instead of dry improves performance quite a lot?

    BWAHAAHAAAAA.........

    Excellent pick-up.
    I would have never thought of that.

    Then again, I never thought of useing
    it as a condiment either.
