Before you use the KRONOS, you’ll need to plug it in
and turn it on!

I have seen much crazier

How about these instructions to open a fan (sorry, no idea why it does not show here)


[img]https://i.chzbgr.com/maxW500/6457445376/h950DAACA[/img]

> When opening, it affixes from the under by the left hand, it has, and the bone on is opened like drawing circle by using the right hand thumb to the last minute.

> When shutting, the right hand is affixed from the state to open the fan, it hauls in by the finger with the left hand along the crease, it draws, and it folds.

Ron,
That is too funny. Did they illustrate those steps too?

Some vitamin bottles will have Crystal Packets in them to keep the vitamins dry. They will have a note on the bottle:
"Do not eat Silica Crystal Packet"

Well this one is not really that funny. Some people do mistakenly eat.

It might make sense to give warning when including those packets of drying agent in a bottle of items meant to be eaten.

But I've seen some electronic gear packaged with those packets of drying agent. Do some people think: "Hey, I've got my sweet new gear ... and it even comes with a free snack pack inside!" ??

Truth is often stranger than fiction. The music gear retailer "Sweetwater" throws in small amounts of candy, such as given away at Halloween, with every order I have purchased from them.

So someone eating the silica packets, its possible. laugh
