Darwin Denied

I pick up a pack of little mini-carabiners, you know, the kind you use for keys and such. What's really scary is the bold lettering on the front of the package: "NOT FOR CLIMBING!"

Natural Selection slinks away, muttering, "curses, foiled again!"


  1. Right up there with the hairdryer, "Do not use while bathing."

    For those driven dodo birds on the go, I gather.

  2. The real irony... is that one of the publishers of motorcycle maintenance manuals is "Clymer"... ironic that something servicable by "clymer" is about to be equipped with something that says "not for climbing"
