Oddities in Life.
« on: August 01, 2009, 11:14:57 AM »
  Okay I admit I can usually see the sense in everything in our modern world.  While at the drive through ATM at the credit union yesterday I looked at the control panel and laughed.  Why are there brail keys on the touch pad?  And how does the user see what his options are?  Definitely a George Carlin moment.

  The guy who invented this is one heck of a sailsman, watch out Alska here comes that load of ice you ordered in December.  Will.

How does the user drive the car to get to the machine??
One cylinder is enough for anyone.

  Exactly, I'd hate to imagine the possibilities this creates.

My favorite legal instructions:

When I was younger and liked to drive really really fast I had a convertible BMW 2.8L z3 (in "pull me over and arrest me now" candy red, natch. I sold it after my insurance tripled.)

The instruction manual had printed in large letters on the front page:

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO MOUNT A ROOF RACK ON THIS VEHICLE.

The blind person sits in the back seat to use the ATM or else is on foot.

I could scarcely believe my eyes on buying a new fishing hat at Academy recently.  I was initially drawn by an attched tag with large script saying "I FLOAT".  Handy , I thought.  At least I'll get it back if it blows off my head.  Closer inspection revealed the unbelievable disclaimer............"NOT a flloatation device!".
  Can you imagine hearing the cry, "Throw me a hat, I'm drowning!!"!!!!!!! :D
A bit like labelling my boat "NOT for highway use"

  MAYBE..but how does he read the screen for instructions, or how does he know it's there?  Will.
