    has the world gone insane or is it me?

    ok so i was tidying my room which i've never liked and have a tendency to go off at any given tangent, when i came across a box off "cook's matches" that had a warning on the back of it that made me laugh.



    i wondered if it was truly necessary to put what i can only presume is a 'stick' child distressed and on fire to hit home the dangers of matches?

    To be honest as my contract recently ran out and i'm out of work i thought, that's the job i want. I want to design stickman warnings for potential dangers. I appreciate the certain genius of a man being told "stickman warning - your title is -DANGER! FIRE KILLS CHILDREN" and coming up with that
    In my world,
    I am King

    Obviously this is a result of a litigious society, we have no one to blame but ourselves and our yearning to sue each other.

    What, Finnish children are fireproof these days?

    It's got some shock value I imagine, much like the fliers depicting carcinogenous lungs that were being handed out to anyone who bought cigarettes here a while back.

    I'm going to assume that in Ireland, fire doesn't kill adults.

    I never heard about cook's matches, but I'm in a discussion about them on a 2d spaceshipgame forum now.. Next time I buy a box matches I first check if it's one of cook's matches with that funny flaming kid on them.

    Wonder if they will get sued when the fire fails to kill the children, they will have to live with those scars for the rest of their lives.

    Follow that dream and drive on!
    The sky's the limit.
    You'll get out of it what you put into it.
    Brains aren't a prerequisite to success.
    It's all about motivation.
    Are you motivated?
