A 74 year-old asthmatic man is damn lucky to survive an experience like that.

yes, they want a warning label

You mean like this.

"Warning: The container is pressurised; keep it away from heat including the sun. Do not puncture or incinerate it even when it is apparently empty."
 
2014-07-10 09:23:52 PM
Wait wait wait...you're saying someone SHOULDN'T put a pressurized container near an open flame?

Well fark me I had no farking clue because apparently the world is made up of idiots.

All warning labels should come with the exact specifics that prompted them.
 
2014-07-10 09:24:44 PM
We threw gasoline on the fire and now we have stumps for arms and no eyebrows. We demand warning labels.
 
2014-07-10 09:25:04 PM
Anybody who puts a compressed air canister in a fire probably isn't much of a reader anyway.
 
2014-07-10 09:25:26 PM
Now reading what I read/typed. It's amazing what the mind misses when transposing stuff.

"including the sun"

As in "keep it away from the sun" not sunlight, mind you, the actual farking sun!

One time I almost choked to death on a warning label. I demand warning labels for warning labels.

Even with warning labels or experience people will be people. Anecdotal evidence sure, but guy I worked with (his dad owned the contractor's company) had the following story to share with me:

His father (my Boss) was running the lawnmower over the fallen leaves etc, Autumn, it's a mess, etc, and poured Gasoline over the leaves to burn'em.

FWOOM he flies back, cracks his spine on something, but lives, blah blah blah.

7 years later, his wife, my buddy's mom, was taking care of the lawn because her husband was at work, and my buddy was off at boot camp. He gets an urgent call and is assured by whoever it was in charge that they'll get him time off to go visit her because SHE poured gasoline over a pile of leaves and grass clippings and lit it up, broke an arm and had some second degree burns.

Somehow, I really *really* don't think warning labels will do it for some people.

Quite a few article readers in this thread already.  It was an accident, he didn't intentionally put it in a leaf fire.

jso2897: A 74 year-old asthmatic man is damn lucky to survive an experience like that.


That's what I was thinking.  Trauma like that could kill anyone.  This geezer is either tough as farking nails or one hell of a lucky bastard.

...in sever cases may cause shortness of breath, internal bleeding, sever pain in abdomen, fainting from blood loss, erectile dysfunction due to nerve damage, incontinence due to liver, spleen and bowel damage.
See your doctor if any of these appear or worsen...
 
2014-07-10 09:38:01 PM
To be fair though, I'm betting it could have an over pressure relief valve built in for cheap.
 
2014-07-10 09:38:54 PM
It's right there on the label between:

Do not discharge up your rectum.
                 and
Do not use devise to smoke crack.

Sheesh, some people.

but where are the warnings in buildings

in case of fire get out.

sure it says do not use elevator...but then what do i do????
 
2014-07-10 09:48:48 PM
Uh, it's a pressurized can, it already has those labels by law:

"STORE AWAY FROM SOURCES OF HEAT SUCH AS SPARKS OR OPEN FLAME.  DO NOT PUNCTURE OR INCINERATE."

The scary part is that some of those people won't call 911 or go to the emergency room, they'll call their normal doctor.

Unpossible.  I was infromed by one of our Conservative friends last week that Fartbama has banned all asthma inhalers.  They're all totally illegal, every man jack of them.

Dear stupid motherf*ckers.  Please climb out of your bubble wrap long enough to read this.  This thing has compressed air and chemicals  in it.  Don't put it into a fire.  As a matter of fact, don't put anything into a fire, or go near one because you're apparently too f*cking stupid to deal with the entire concept on intense heat.  Sit your ass down in your recliner, turn on your 40" TFT, crack open of bucket of KFC and stay away from anything more complicated than the ice dispenser. - People Who Can Do Stuff

Ummm  Subby the article I read didn't mention anyone stating they demand warning labels. The article was quit clear that there are labels already.

That one actually makes sense, since many people with nut allergies are not allergic to peanuts, but these ones are processed in a factory with nuts.

I think they should start putting warning labels on the mint shampoos my wife uses...

Do not rub in eyes, insert in rectum or rub on freshly shaved scrotum.

I can barely read the warning on the package--no doubt why you quoted it below, instead of letting the leaflet speak for itself.

Of course, your need to quote it instead of letting the leaflet speak for itself itself speaks for itself. Had the label been large and prominent, you could have just posted the leaflet itself to make your point.

Lot of kids use these inhalers at scout camps and whatnot where there's going to be fire. A larger, more prominent warning label isn't a bad idea.
 
2014-07-11 12:02:38 AM
Do not throw into fire dumbass!

My diaphragm is over on the other side of the house, the inhaler will probably miss me.

He didn't. The inhaler fell out of his pocket.

HAPPY?
 
2014-07-11 09:05:24 AM
Do they still have the cap over the mouthpiece?

You know, the one that you normally remove before you use it, but sometimes if you get distracted you might forget?

The one that pops off when you trigger the inhaler, and is just the right size to fly back and lodge in your throat?

Where you can't just cough it up, because you've emptied your lungs to do the "inhale" thing, and there's nothing left to push it out?

Because I nearly lost a family member that way, and I'm thinking "don't design a cap system that's optimized to strangle people" is a more achievable goal than "design a pressurized container that won't blow up when you toss it into a bonfire".
