Warning labels.......
« on: January 26, 2007, 06:53:18 AM »

And especially for Swedish Steel and Golden Child, a quote:

On a Swedish Chainsaw
"Do not attempt to stop chainsaw with your hands or genitals."

Please remember this Swede and Goldie, I wouldn't want anything nasty to happen to either of you!

Ah yes...I read about that. That warning label appeared on the chainsaw after some idiot american had sued them after trying to do that, wich one of them I'm not sure. I hope it was with the hand, or did the guy think he had nuts of steel? Only I do... :)

There is another, at the bottom with the pictures of actual labels.

It's an Asian translation to English giving advice on CD cleaning.

"When there are stains on the face of the disk - Wipe genitally with a wet cloth"

There's lots more of them here

http://rinkworks.com/said/

Though I think my favourite section is the translations of lines from Hong Kong action movies at the bottom of this page

http://rinkworks.com/said/language.shtml


"Yah-hah, evil spider woman! I have captured you by the short rabbits and can now deliver you violently to your gynecologist for a thorough extermination."

"Greetings, large black person. Let us not forget to form a team up together and go into the country to inflict the pain of our karate feets on some @$$ of the giant lizard person."

If anyone happens to know these movies please tell the titles. I really want to try and find the context of these lines  ;D

Had a thief enter a old womans house and hurt himself...sued the woman...and won.....

   Last few years in the states people have gotten even dumber!  A example is of Radio controlled Toy trucks and Cars!

  Actual warning on most of these toys now read.   "CAUTION!!"  Toy Will Move.  When In USE!!"

   WELL DUHHHHHHHHH!!

Already been done Akioth, it's written on packaging from one of the UK supermarkets.


From the above mentioned site:

On Sainsbury's peanuts -- "Warning: contains nuts"

"Warning Contains Nuts."

Airline packets of peanuts - Warning: May contain nuts.

Frankly, I'm a lot more worried by the 'may' in that sentence.

What else might it be?

I know the reference to the coffee incident was old, but I see it used quite often.  I'd like to point out that McDonald's had been sued several times for the temperature of their coffee hurting people.  They had always settled out of court and so no press was mentioned.  McDonald's decided to fight this one in court and the woman was actually suing only for her medical bills, which consisted of some pretty serious burns.  McDonald's had been warned on several occassions during those previous lawsuits to lower the temperature of their coffee, which they kept that hot so that they wouldn't have to continually change the pot.  She won the lawsuit and was awared a massive sum of money, far more than what she originally sued for.  So it's not such a black and white case.

I heard of a woman who sued a department store because she tripped and fell over some young kid who was running around unattended. She won the case. Somehow, the fact that the kid was *hers* failed to impress the jury.

The women tripping over her kid lawsuit story is almost certainly a hoax...just passed around so often that people think it's true simply because they've heard it multiple times, much like many internet hoaxes. I'd be happy to admit I'm wrong though if someone has information about such a case (more specifically non-anecdotal information. Remember, the plural of anecdote is not data!)
