Damn things look like candy to kidlets. When I had to demo the product I made sure the pod was thoroughly taped to the table so kids couldn't grab it and stuff it in their mouths.

There was an uproar over the pods by consumers and the government was thinking of banning them but the conglomerates that make big bucks selling them made a big stink - bottom line, they continue to sell the pods but make the containers with a stronger clasp and a warning label saying to keep out of reach of children.
Dance as if no one's watching, sing as if no one's listening, and live everyday as if it were your last.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.

No wonder there seems to be so many stupid people
on the planet.
Too many Warning labels and Safety bulletins.

Back in the day if one was an idiot, one didn't make it.

Too many older idiots around to think that to be true.

Just another, you can't fix stupidity
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

I think we need to remove all warning labels and let nature take it's course.
Common sense is like deodorant, the people who need it most never use it.

True, I made it this far, every time I look back, I wonder how.
I know others do as well.

There's been over 40 hospitalizations at least so far (I read that one here on Castanet). It's mind boggling how stupid people can be. Prepare for the above video to be deleted as they are disappearing from youtube.

That should be encouraged.

Somebody should talk to them about Antifreeze Syrupy Water challenge.

They should do something about spray foam. That stuff looks (so) tempting. Like sponge toffy.
