:lol: That was a tad sexist. :lol: All the stupid dangerous things in there were done by women, whereas the men did everything right.

Loved the CGI flames though. :lol:

Reminds me of this. :lol:

People over here used to use screws in place of fuses in plugs. People can be really stupid! :roll:

My dad was SUCH a safety sam ! He would turn off the power to the house if we went out for the day. We were drilled about the time Mrs S's nightgown caught fire on the heater, or when the Thompsons boy got his arm caught in the washing mangle, etc. We had every electrical item in OUR house in perfect condition because Mum and Dad knew so many people who had died. It was real. We had one house where you had to turn on the toilet light to get the powerpoints to work in the dining room.

And although our house was one of the safest we knew, there were still traumas. The time my brother who was just toddling, got past the barricade to the kitchen, climbed up the counter in the kitchen and crawled onto the iron stove :o :o :o

And how many fools STILL store their petrol cans in the shed along with fertilizer????

A dark little witticism from my mother. I'm rugged up in my dressing gown, and she wonders what it is. When we check and find that it is polyester, she remarks "So a lot of little polyesters died so that you could have a dressing gown."

I didn't think my mother had a sick sense of humour, but there you go. :|

also on topic, at work (retail) we often refer to the things the customers leave around the store as "Customer droppings" :lol:
