View Full Version : Fridge magnets cause cancer!

"Using refridgerator magnets could raise the risk of developing cancer by almost a third, US scientists say."

Quite a shocking article. I used to have a lot of those funny magnets.

Is this some sort of advanced red X (file) forum joke?

I read that as "fringe magnets". Makes more sense with the article.

Also, ordinary household fans, if left on overnight, can KILL you. FACT.

The dangerous kitchen
If it ain't one thing it's another
In the middle of the night when you get home
The bread things are all dry 'n' scratchy
The meat things
Where the cats ate through the paper
The can things with the sharp little edges
That can cut your fingers when you're not looking
The soft little things on the floor that you step on
They can all be DANGEROUS
Sometimes the milk can hurt you
(If you put it on your cereal
Before you smell the plastic container)
And the stuff in the strainer
Has a mind of its own
So be very careful
In the dangerous kitchen
When the night time has fallen,
And the roaches are crawlin'
In the kitchen of danger
You can feel like a stranger
The bananas are black
They got flies in the back
And also the chicken
In the dish with the foil
Where the cream is all clabbered
And the salad is frightful
Your return in the evening
Can be less than delightful
You must walk very careful
You must not lean against it
It can get on your clothing
It can follow you in
As you walk to the bedroom
And you take all your clothes off
While you're sleeping
It crawls off
It gets in your bed
It could get on your face then
It could eat your complexion
You could die from the danger
Of the dangerous kitchen
Who the fuck wants to clean it?
It's disgusting and dirty
The sponge on the drainer
Is stinky and squirty
If you squeeze it when you wipe up
What you get on your hands then
Could un-balance your glands and
Make you blind or whatever
In the dangerous kitchen
At my house tonight

The ALL-CAPS, not to mention the excessive use of commas, make it TRUE.

Are you a realtor?

18-07-2007, 11:02:36
That all depends. Would you buy a house from me if I was?

Real Tor!!!!

Truth doesn't come from commas! It comes from escalamamationing marks and links!


Like laughter comes from :)

You, sir, are wrong. See? TRUTH!

As my arguments stand on their own merits, I, for one, do not need links.

I think it depends where you insert the magnet and whether or not the current is on.
