They then go on to list so MANY side effects, you would probably be just as
well off to stick with your original single ailment!
One medicine lists "compulsive gambling" as one of your possible freebies!


2. How about TV ads that say you can only get the item at the stated price
for the next 5 minutes? They show a countdown timer. Oh, so if you tried
to buy it in SIX minutes, they wouldn't sell it to you?


3. How about battery-powered devices that use batteries that don't exist
in regular stores? You may have to pitch the device upon battery death.

My favorite is the disclaimer "you should not take X if you are allergic to X"

Really? I shouldn't take a medicine that I know I am allergic to? Wow, you learn something new every day.

I just wonder who the morons are that actually need this warning.
Best part of that is, don't take X if you are allergic to X or any one of its ingredients - but how are you to know if your are allergic to its ingredients, the ingredients are a trade secret if its a new drug to market.

Re: Annoying Trends.

Alright, guess I'll throw my hat into the ring.

I agree that carrying a round in the chamber w/ handgun or rifle are the same thing. AD and ND are just as likely to happen to both if the gun isn't given the proper respect. If carrying a rifle w/ one in the chamber, considering there isn't a trigger guard, it would need to remain on 'safe' until ready to fire.

And to add to annoying trends, not gun related but its mine is the one size fits all baseball caps with flat brims. I must have an oddly shaped head because none of them fit me - I refer to them as 'one size fits none'
