  1. [...] Transparent face mask? By ragmanx OK, this one just baffles me. Over at the Modern Mechanix blog, there is an old advertisement for a transparent face mask from the March 1940 issue of Popular Science magazine. Looking at the ad, all I can see is a plastic bag which someone put on a chicks head. Haven’t we spent our entire lives being told not to put plastic bags on our heads due to danger of suffocation? And isn’t putting a plastic bag over a woman’s head something more likely to be done by a serial murderer? And why is this woman smiling? [...]

    Where the “This is Not a Toy” Message First Came From…

    No, seriously. All you need is “yellow and blue make green and turn you blue” in the instructions and they would be complete.
    Enjoy.

    Maybe our litigious society isn’t that bad after all.

    LOL@this

    Apparently the designer didn’t take the human need of oxygen into account when he made this.
