Why in the king farking fark doesn't the back of the Batteries+ store say Batteries- ?
 
2012-09-01 08:37:01 AM
I'm thinking mandatory 5 day waiting limits on battery sales, battery possession licenses, and strict laws regarding the storage of batteries are the only thing we can do at this point. Won't someone think of the children?

Did any of the parents get brought up on charges?

And yet, they're trying to ban Buckyballs, which are sold to adults only, clearly marked as "Keep away from all children", and have caused several injuries. SEVERAL!!!  Won't someone think of the several?

Well, if you can't decide whether electrocute yourself or OD on sleeping pills, you have to compromise...

From 1997 to 2010, an estimated 40,400 U.S. children age 13 or younger were treated in a hospital for battery-related injuries, health officials say.

Nice reading comprehension there, Subs. It's the first farking sentence. Unless you're claiming there were 400 cases from 97 to 09 and then 40k in 2010.

I thought the lithium would cure the bipolarity...

Bad statistics aside, was anyone charged?

Batteries do have poles. Albeit a different kinda pole than magnets.

There are have cables for that.

Blame the child targeting of that cartoonish bunny. Eat a battery and keep " going and going and going ". What kid wouldn't want that power?
 
2012-09-01 11:54:36 AM
Is there a treatment for it or is it....terminal?
 
2012-09-01 12:10:03 PM
Well that statistic is mildly shocking.
 
2012-09-01 04:42:46 PM
It just proves that there are a lot of window-lickers out there that need 24 hour supervision because they can't survive on their own.
 
2012-09-01 06:05:15 PM
And they want to ban Buckyballs?

Molavian: And they want to ban Buckyballs?


Yup.

Just goes to show you that Obama is in the pocket of Rayovac and Everyready and he has no problem seeing children suffer.

What?
This bothers some of you?
How is it any different that the things said about conservatives wanting granny to die and autistic kids to never get treatment?
