    Yesterday saw the purchase of a replacement vacuum cleaner and the Basic Safety Precautions section in the book of destructions contains the following invaluable piece of advice:

    DO NOT use if the appliance is not working o_O

    Bit like the pair of small stepladders I bought recently. There is a sticker on the bottom step which reads 'Do not stand on or above this step - you may lose your balance'.....what am I supposed to do, just look at it and think of myself standing on one of the steps o_O

    Many years ago I was looking at a book, Sax's Dangerous Properties of Industrial Materials. It was an early edition, and later editions have altered what I am about to tell you. One section for each chemical had a code as to what action should be taken in the case of a spillage. If you looked at "water", then the code for spillage of this meant " wash down with water"
