I often smile when I read warning labels. I can't help it. Perhaps I am perverse. I’m really not sure. But in light of some recent events, there are people who could use a smile, and I am nothing if not accommodating. So here is my list of eleven (number 2 counts as two) warnings that Darwin doesn’t want me to tell you. In the comments, feel free to add additional warnings. And be safe out there!!1. Don’t eat ice packs.
2. Don’t put sunscreen in your eyes to look at the sun. And don’t look at the sun.
3. Don’t blow dry your hair during your bath or shower. It really won’t save you time.
4. Don’t eat toothpaste. Yes, toothpaste and space food both come in tubes. I’m fairly certain the similarities end there.
5. Don’t eat cleaning products, full stop.
6. Don’t run with scissors or sharp objects.
7. Don’t leave an open flame unattended.
8. Don’t drink hot coffee or sip hot soup until it has cooled enough not to burn your mouth.
9. Don’t believe everything you read on the internet (or anywhere).
10. For the love of all things Darwin, don’t share this post with someone who actually needs this advice!
