    Visited a Local Hospital today...

    ... and saw this PC sign of our times. Are they suggesting we park in some nearby open-air lot? Gads.
    Now, how do I get back to my car?
    It was probably required by some safety committee.

    And funny, too, is that the location of this sign would make it seen upon DEPARTURE! Like... it's too late... run to your car while holding your breath. What's somebody to so with this notice (short of "don't sue us").

    I see this in our future (borrowed from China): "Come on, dear, let's go to our car."

    This was from a little bag of wood screws I bought at Home Depot - Thanks to California for pointing out that Pregnant women should not eat these wood screw! Whew, tragedy averted!

    You are not in California so it should be safe for you to eat those screws. Well, at least they won't give you cancer or cause a birth defect although there may be other effects.

    I've seen a lot of Amazon 1-star reviews where people are upset that some common item they would NEVER ingest or handle a lot carries the California Prop 65 warning. Some things just seem to go too far.

    I'll head off to the dark corner of the parking deck now so I can eat my wood screws.
