It made me believe that reading that warning might cause me to get cancer... But only in Cali... :-)
What a state.

Do you get cancer from power cords in Texas?
I thought that was funny. Do folks in Kalifornia swear off electricity due to the cancer causing properties of power cords? How moronic.

NO! People in California are especially susceptible to cancer as they have had a lot of stuff shove down their throats for so many years. Their immune systems are severely compromised.

Talk about the boy that cried wolf. When California does have another crises no one is going to notice the warning among all the outher warnings.

Who would come to their aid?
You might get cancer traveling into the state.

made me laugh ================================================================================A lot of places are doing that or just not dealing with anyone in California. I am sure that Californians don't pay any attention to warning labels anymore. A perfect example of crying wolf. They have labeled so much stuff as being bad for you that legitimate warnings are likely being ignored since everything down there will kill you.

I'm sure most ignore it, too, but the cost involved has to be paid by somebody. And they wonder why their state is in debt. I just think HW approach is hilarious, everthing we sell causes cancer and we're not even going to evaluate the levels of exposure. Gotta love it. The sad part was I was looking at C clamps and saw the warning and clicked on it, thinking how the F*** can a c clamp cause cancer?

Your missing the point.
You see like little kids, Californians may put the C clamp in their mouths... So you need a Retailer to look after these little adults and make sure that they know the risks...
That's why Jay Walking (Jay Leno) is so funny. They have the dumbest people that can't answer basic simple questions. I watched a CPA make a total fool of himself. I was screaming You F'ning idiot...

Yep, Jay celebrates stupidity. It is hard to watch. I was always a history buff, so historical questions would be easy for me. But some of those folks are so ignorant and incapable of the most simple logic. I remember one girl who was asked, "When was the war of 1812"? She couldn't figure it out. Another historical mystery, who fought the civil war? She answered, England! How did these people get through school? I remember one particularly stupid women who couldn't figure out what planet she was on. Her job? Elementary school teacher! We are doomed.

Some of the people Jay interviews are not Californicans and they do no better. Stupidity is universal. Art

Not to mention that Californians brought you the B-2, F-22, C-17, the first disk drive (IBM), some of the best business computers ever built (electrodata/burroughs), the internet as we know it (UCB) and so forth. With over 35 million people, there are bound to be a dozen or so with below average knowledge and intelligence, and Jay Leno never shows the majority of respondents who answer the questions correctly.

And don't forget what may be California's crowning contribution to modern civilization, "right turn permitted on red after stop"

Not necessarily. Many of the engineers come from all around.
My friends are case in point. All from Long Island, where Fairchild, and Grumman were based.
They live in Cali now, because that's where the jobs are. Another friend from Mass has recently moved to Cali.. same ...
While many are from Cali, many are not.
And many Californians are smart people, but there is an abudance of idiots. I think that is related to the Hollywood atmosphere... But then again, look at thos stupid laws...

Hardly an objective assessment. It also points out that the rest of the country has similar budgetary problems, as does the federal government almost all of which can be attributed to the bush tax cuts and two wars.
