"Do not attempt to dry iPod with an external heat source, such as a microwave oven or hair dryer." - From the iPod Manual

Ok. First off. Who would have actually thought to dry their iPod in a microwave. What the hell. I mean seriously.

They have to protect their company from liability, dude.

All it takes is one stupid asshole to bring a multi-million-dollar lawsuit against Apple.

Most people have common sense. But all it takes is one person...

there's warning lables like that everywhere:

Clothing Iron-"Do not iron clothes while wearing"

Children's scooter "product moves while used"

Knife- "Keep out of children" (that one is a typo, but its still a good laugh)

Baby Stroller- "Do not fold stroller while occupant is still inside"

It rediculous, but thats America for you.

haha yea anyone here hear about the old woman that suied an RV company?

well if you have dont read this if you have read this its a little funny.
an elderly woman was driving in her RV somewhere in the US and she got hungry. So she put the thing in automatic and went into the back and made herself a sandwhich. Now as we all would expect the RV crashed and she got injured. the thing she ingaged, all it does is maintain the same speed or something like that and of course its common knowledge that a car can't drive itself, no? but she still suied the RV manufacturers and got buckets full of money.

thats just one story but there are millions like it in the US and no where else in the world.

The reason they put those stupid warnings in the manual is because someone, somewhere, has been stupid enough to fry his ipod in the microwave, then sue apple for not telling him to avoid doing so. As mentioned by every user above me, people are bloody stupid lol

It's not as bad as putting your dog in a microwave to dry it off. Yes, someone did that.

not stupid as such, but on the sunvisor of my bros car (passenger side) it reads 'do not secure baby in front seat as death could occur', or something to that affect.

perhaps they mean that in an accident, babies have a higher chance of survival if they arnt strapped in, makes sense

my friends brand new dean razorback had a sticker on the back which had a bin with a cross on it meaning "do not put in bin"...im sure heaps of people spend thousands of dollars on guitars to put it in bin :P

Not all of the stupid warnings are there for stupidity as much as they are for people trying to find a get rich quick scheme. There was a lady who sued a subway company in New York a while back because she got hit by a train. She was awarded 19,000,000 USD. At the end of the day though, the court decided to cut it down to 16,000,000 USD. Why? Right before she got hit by the train, she was laying on the tracks trying to commit suicide.

That being said, it also backfires a lot. There was another lady in Arizona who thought up a scheme based on the McDonald's coffee warning suit (The one where she 'didn't know' that the coffee was hot because of the lack of warning on the cup). She decided to "accidentally" spill some hot chili on herself while driving. What did she get? A nice fine due to the fact that there is a law against that in Arizona.

At the end of the day though, most of the stupid warnings are just from companies' fear that someone will try and make an easy million off of them from one the lack of a warning. The bad thing about all these warnings is that it's slowing down natural selection. Some people don't need to be in the gene pool if they have to have a warning telling them not to iron their clothes while wearing them...

EDIT: I'll see if I can provide the links for both of those stories. The first one I read in a book, and the second was one that my dad told me about.

Warning labels are there for two reasons: Some idiot did it, or people are trying to get rich.

We should get rid of warning labels and let natural selection take its course.

They just don't want you to do that because they know putting your microwave on defrost and setting it for 60 seconds will give you 80 more GB to store music. They don't want you to know that you don't have to buy a 60 GB, you can just microwave your Nano.

there is NOTHING wrong with drying electronics with a hairdryer, so long as certain precautions are maintained.

god, apple sucks. what idiots.

as for microwaves...welllll...anyone who puts an iPod in a microwave is either a genius or deserves to get hit by bits of exploded iPod.

That's exactly what I'm saying. But first you'd basically have to slam your head in the microwave door so it'd close, which would cut off your head... so for the seven seconds your head could still think for itself, you'd be the smartest person alive.

Unless you were intelligent enough to jam a piece of something in the door catch to out-think the clever bastard, but then you probably wouldn't be doing it in the first place.
