If con is the opposite of pro, is Congress the opposite of progress?

In case you needed further proof that the human race is doomed through stupidity, here are some actual label instructions on consumer goods:

1. On Sears hairdryer: "Do not use while sleeping".
[Gee, that's the only time I have to work on my hair]

2. On a bag of Fritos: "You could be winner! No purchase necessary.
Details inside".
[Evidently, the shoplifter special]

3. On a bar of Dial soap: "Directions: Use like regular soap."
[And that would be how...?]

4. On some Swanson frozen dinners: "Serving suggestions: Defrost."
[But it's *just* a suggestion]

5. On Tesco's Tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom of box): "Do not turn upside down".
[Oops, too late, you lose!!]

6. On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding: "Product will be hot after heating.
[As sure as night follows the day . . . . .]

7. On packaging for a Rowenta iron: "Do not iron clothes on body".
[But wouldn't this save even more time?]

8. On Boot's Children's Cough Medicine: "Do not drive a car or operate machinery after taking this medication".
[We could do a lot to reduce the rate of construction accidents if we could just get those 5-year-olds with head-colds off those forklifts.]

9. On Nytol Sleep Aid: "Warning: May cause drowsiness".
[One would hope]

10. On most brands of Christmas lights: "For indoor or outdoor use only".
[As opposed to what?]

11. On a Japanese food processor: "Not to be used for the other use".

12. On Sainsbury's peanuts: "Warning: Contains nuts".

13. On an American Airlines packet of nuts: "Instructions: open packet,eat nuts."
[Step 3: Fly Delta]

14. On a child's Superman costume: Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly".

15. On a Swedish chain saw: "Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands or genitals".
[Was there a chance of this happening somewhere?.....Good grief!]

All of those warnings remind me how we go out of our way to stop evolution in progress. It's supposed to be survival of the fittest, and if people can't figure out not to do really dumb things, then they aren't the fittest. Just my $0.02.
