I've seen gun manuals with warnings instructing which end the bullet comes out.

Label: Do not use while sleeping.
Product: Hair dryer.

Several manufacturers of hair dryers thought it necessary to warn users of the dangers of sleep-drying, an affliction that, apparently, befell somebody.

I actually know someone that ran their hair dryer while sleeping because she liked having the hot air warming up her covers. So I guess this is a legitimate warning.

Label: Never use a lit match or open flame to check fuel level.
Product: Jet Ski.

This little ditty can be found on gas caps for personal recreational vehicles such as jet skis and ATVs. Should be followed by: "And if this was news to you, you are not legally permitted to operate this vehicle or, for that matter, leave the house."

I could see bugeater or frazod doing this and then posting a thread here about it. Good thing there are stupid warning labels.

The warning labels may seem silly.... but each of them are on there because some stupid fucking idiot actually got hurt trying what they're warning against...

People are dumb.

So does Teflon kill small animals? And if so, should we be cooking with it?

I don't think that's true. I just ate some raisins and they didn't have a small animal warning on them.

Maybe I didn't see the warning because it's written in dog. Should I be looking for "woof woof woof" on the label, or it it written like the sound of a really high-pitched whistle?

Explain.

Explain.IF a small dog consumes a large amount of chocolate, it can kill them.

Chocolate, grapes and raisins are all fatal to dogs.

A dog that weighs less than 10 pounds can die from ingesting only one raisin or grape. It shuts down their kidneys and they die a horrible death.

These warning labels maybe "silly" but they protect the manufacturers from frivolous lawsuits.

I knew about chocolate, but raisins and grapes? That's news to me.

I have a neighbor with an annoying rat-dog. I might just have to stop by the grocery store later.

Yeah, it sucks, especially if you have a toddler. We have to be extremely vigilant if we give our child raisins because my labs are scavengers.

Huh. That's interesting. Just for smaller breeds though?

All breeds. My labs weigh about 65 pounds each and the vet warned us about the raisins.

I'm sure there's some conflicting info out there but our vet warned us about both raisins and chocolate, so the last thing I want to do is ignore her warnings.

It's far better to be safe than sorry.

It's far better to be safe than sorry.I dont know why anyone would feed a dog anything other than dog food anyway.

Its interesting to me that they can eat a dead rotting rodent and not eat something as simple as a grape.

That's not really the point.

One of my Labs will eat anything. Anything that falls on the floor, anything that's left unattended, anything.

I can't tell you how many times my daughter has left her playroom for 30 seconds with food on a plate, whether it's crackers, a piece of cheese, a banana, peanut butter sandwich, almonds, cashews, pizza, hotdogs, again, just anything, only to return to find it gone.

With that being the case, we have to be extremely vigilant when she's got grapes or raisins.
