Chicken Wings Classic – Can’t lower the landing gear

There’s always a way to describe a perfectly safe condition that makes it sound threatening. One of my favorite jokes in that regard is to point out that something contains high amounts of dihydrogen monoxide. It’s the main component of acid rain, for example. I always laughed about the videos on the internet, where so many people don’t seem to know what it is. But I dare you to try it in real life among people you know! The results may be surprising, to say the least.

    Deal with similar all day at work. Thanks to GHS labels.
    I make chemical mixtures. “Wow, this looks really dangerous! Shouldn’t this be done in a full suit and breathing gear? Says “Causes Cancer!”
    “The ‘Cancer Causing’ agent is Isopropanol … Isopropyl Alcohol … Rubbing Alcohol”
    To get cancer, you have to drink it … enough it’ll kill likely you before the cancer can form, but California says it causes cancer so it must be labeled as such.

    “Known to cause cancer in the state of California”. It’s OK, since I don’t live in California.

    I’ve always dreamed of attaching a Prop 65 warning label to the “Welcome to California” signs.

    I’ve had thoughts of saying things like this as an excuse to avoid doing something I don’t want to do. A good excuse might be “my car doesn’t have a radiator inlet hose clamp at the moment.” This is true, just hope they don’t realize that my old aircooled Volkswagen never had one, it doesn’t have a radiator.

    I once ran across a MSDS related to a chemical, CAS number 7732-18-5. It looked like the paper was a copy paste from a standard form, looking at all the mandatory precautions (goggles, gloves fumehood…) required to handle pure water!

    my favourite comes from when we first started using MSDS sheets and I read every one in the binder for the shop, including the one that said “if in contact with skin, flush with copious amounts of running water for 15 minutes and seek medical attention”…for waterless handcleaner o.O
