ISP contract referring to limitations on cable modem use.. "Cannot be used for more than 24 hrs in any day"
Owning an ISP, I can explain this statement.....

Many households have more than a single computer on the internet. And, they can rack up the hours, greatly increasing your overhead. I had one customer who used 6 computers in the home, all connected to the internet, and could easily rack up 100 hours in a 24-hour day.

Here's another one I have always found was necessary for the logically challenged:

Do not use hair dryer while in the shower.

Do not use hair dryer in the bathtub. May cause electrocution or death.

Saw a microwave warning me not to dry pets in it, there may have been a mention of children on there too. That just made me sad..

Saw this sign in a cafe somewhere years ago, and I loved it ;D

"out of children" or "out of the reach of children"?

Either way... LOL

One of my favorite signs:
I've seen several different manifestations of this.

Not quite on topic, but a local dentist's office has a sign that says "Parking lot is for dental customer use only. Cars parked here illegally will be painfully extracted."

Warnings that are mixed up in translation:
(on a box, next to one of the "up" arrows) "Upside must be respected."

On the Ramune soda bottle (which has a unique "cap." Instead of a metal or plastic twist-off cap, there's a marble sealing it. You press the marble down into the bottle to get at the tasty, life-giving soda within.)
"Do not attempt to remove marble in order to avoid injury."
Why would I think that removing the marble would help me avoid injury?

This was supposed to be funny, so I don't think it qualifies as stupid, but I've always liked it......

I don't think this has come up yet, and I'm suprised:
Caution: HOT! product: hot cocoa, hot coffee, and any beverage with "hot" in the title(and quite a few generally served hot). but it's especially weird to see it on beverages that have "hot" in their description on the menu.
As if the consumer wouldn't know before ordering.

LOLOL! Those are so funny.

Butane Cans: Do not burn. ???

I know they say that for the absolutely stupid people, but don't you think that if someone that stupid walked the earth, stupid enough to BURN a BUTANE can, shouldn't they deserve the after affects? (Just kidding! No one deserves to get blown up!)

On deodorant stick: "Use daily for best results".

It seems the only people who need that written on there for them can't read!

Ok a bit


Also on this deodorant stick:

Contains odour-fighting "Atomic Robots" that "Shoot Lasers" at your "Stench Monsters" and replace them with fresh, clean, masculine "Scent Elves".

An eloquent paraphrasing of the science behind deodorants......
