    Do you read from cover to cover, or just throw them out and try to figure out your new gadget on your own threw trial and error?

    Read them only if I think I need them, which is probably most of the time.

    Most of my new toys I feel are pretty self explanatory. I recycle the directions and if I live to regret it...Oops!
    Every once in a while it can be kinda fun to read the directions that go to the things most of us have pretty much figured out how to use, and have been using for quite some time.

    Reading warning labels are funny! You can get some pretty twisted images in your mind from reading warning labels.

    Zantac 75:
    Do not take if you are allergic to zantac.

    Toilet brush:
    Do not use for personal hygiene.

    Hair coloring:
    Do not use as an ice cream topping

    So many more...

    Hard to believe that some of these need to exist at all.

      smile That last part probably wasn't important anyway. Maybe the manufacture just put in a few extras to entertain his own twisted humor.
