(17:34:41) CondorDes: There's a warning label on the bottom of one of my candles
(17:34:57) CondorDes: The last sentence is "To extinguish candle, blow out flame"
(17:35:14) CondorDes: I am thoroughly amused now.

...damn. People really are stupid. I mean, if you're stupid enough not to know how to blow out a candle, are you really going to be able to handle those long 3-syllable words like "extinguish"?

You may wish to read the instructions on a packet of toothpicks. I think you'll find it clarifies things for you.

Erm, does this mean that, if you're unsure how to stop the flame from flickering, you have to turn the candle upside down to read the warning label?? And thereby dump hot wax all over yourself? And how the hell were you smart enough to light the candle in the first place? Lighters must be hell for someone like that. And *matches*??? Forget it!!!

Oooooh, maybe it's a Darwin thing. I'd never thought of that! ;)

Hey, just because you like fire doesn't necessarily mean you're smart. In fact, if you like fire that much, you're probably pretty stupid...

::purrrrr:: Now, if only I could find snoggings IRL. ;P

:giggles: back
That is pretty darn funny.

I don't have toothpicks - darn :( does it really say something? (me being naive?)
you know what I think is funny is on Q-tip boxes they say to not insert into ear - just to swab the outside part. it's like "come on! Most people use them to clean the ear wax out of the inside of the ear."
anyway, I just noticed that not too long ago.

Why yes. It tells you how to use a toothpick. Which if you ask me is about as pointless as telling someone a lit candle is hot. And it also makes a good Hitchhiker's Guide reference. ;)

Q-tips are also weird. Go figure.
