    Oh yes, that's why we are treating it lightly and I do my bit in that regard, raising the tone slightly.

    The nice thing about cintanotes is that a shift+F12 after any selected text and it creates a new note with a correct title and the text neatly placed in the note.

    It wasn't written in VB6 but it should have been.

    We'll need you, what with all the resigning mods. Personally, my resignation will be effective... ooh, I dunno... 2030ish... maybe... blame it on all the people who keep ignoring me.

    Good move. Now we can ignore this thread just like we can ignore a good moderator.

    There is usually some risk involved with everyday activities so I'm always on the lookout for falling bricks when walking on the sidewalks but you can still never know for sure :-))

    So, when walking on the sidewalk you are looking up?

    Are you one of those people who keeps running into the parking meters?

    Here's rumours, that "looking up" will become mandatory for everyone in the future (if you want to keep your job)...

    It's to prevent over-filling the ICUs with people, "hit by falling shingles and stuff".
    (statistics have shown, that running into parking-meters instead, is far less dangerous for ones health -
    ...so, making "looking up" mandatory keeps the ICU-units available for all these cancer-patients).

    As we've learned recently - people cannot be trusted anymore, to do their own risk-assesment.

    Well that certainly isn't new. If people were capable of that then we could save lots of money on traffic signs and enforcing traffic safety laws. We could also walk around juggling live grenades.

    We also wouldn't have stupid warning labels like "Do not use near an open flame" ..... on shaving cream. Really? What brought that on? As a comic I saw once said "That means somewhere, some time, some idiot told his wife, 'Hon I think i'll shave... in the fireplace!'"

    Re: Ignoring moderators

    Well I guess some people might want to shave by candle light (during a power outage), so it isn't that bad... unlike the warning labels on packets of nuts, eg: "warning: may contain nuts"



    Why do they need a warning for that, and why on earth is the the word "may" in there?

    Re: Ignoring moderators

    People with certain nut allergies aren't necessarily allergic to all nuts, but maybe specific ones... but processing plants will often process one nut, then another, then a different one... allowing for trace amounts of a different nut to end up on another. So the pine nuts could be contaminated by peanuts. I could see that being a more realistic situation than someone shaving by candlelight. I mean, if you're shaving by candlelight.... do you need to be shaving?

    Apparently, I'm nuts.

    It's been a fine few days of eating, and after all that, I still don't know what this thread is about.
