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.

The same ones who join a class action lawsuit after said medication supposedly harms them. Most meds aren't on the market more than 6 months before some ambulance chasing law firm files suit.

Re: Annoying Trends.

Great thread Liberty! I too sometimes shake my head and sigh at trends that I don't like, or agree with. Some are gun related, but then there is also the western wear trends, like square toed boots, and hats creased like taco shells.

I do agree wholeheartedly, that we in the "gun community" who value the preservation, of our 2A rights, need to be mindful of the fact, that we all have our reasons for the way we choose to excercise those rights, and criticizing one another, only creates division, that those striving to deprive us of those rights, can exploit.

This is the very reason, that I spend the majority of my on line time on this forum. We can express our opinions, and even if not everyone agrees, there is still a respect given to those who have differing ways of doing things.
