I'm more of an active electrocution guy

passive anti-electrocution would be a better idea.

Personally, I'm all for active anti-electrocution...

This entry is amusing. But it also serves as a reminder about the mindset we must take in communications to our customers. We need to view the message from their end, and with their knowledge and experience.

I think what it really should tell us is that the need to proof work before ot goze publik is essenshal to kwality; un42nately, many, companies, do not, do that.

Oh, oh!

I want to be passively electrocuted!

so do i!

i think it's a typographical error, rather than the usual overly-regulated government warnings. this is just nonsensical.

and, i doubt labels pertaining to electrical things should even *mention* electrocution, even in the anti-electrocution sense.

"We need to view the message from their end..."

In this context, take that how you will.

People are getting so lazy nowadays that they don't even bother to actively try to electrocute themselves, they have to go into a train lavatory and be passively electrocuted.

Having taken 480 phase to phase across the chest, I find the piddlin' 120 Volt stuff does no more than relieve my arthritus for a couple days. What's all the hub-bub, Bub?

Kinda like how Inflammable means the same as flammable isnt it? when you would think that inflammable would = not flammable.. but still passive electrocution feature is a little weird LOL

The toilet is an electric chair.
