    i'd have to say: If you have set yourself on fire, do not run

    i thought of something very different, more along the lines of the flammable nature of methane, well considering where the flame is, oh come on! it's surely not just me... oh never mind

    I'd have to choose the one about not driving your station wagon, if there is a pole sticking out of the hood. But, they're all pretty funny.

    Yes that one was good, I also liked the "If caught under collapsed building use flashlight to elevate rubble" one.

    I liked the one;
    If your building collapses...

    Unfortunately I am not that flexible.

    Well you need to learn how to limber up and get more flexible, otherwise my friend you simply are a terrorist.

    All of those things are ripped off of www.iidb.org

    They're funny, but they are all stolen.

    I'll look for the link to the original thread. There are a bunch more of them there.

    I have to say that I dug the one about the exit door. If its closed, just Karate Chop it! I don't know if any of you were aware, but the karate chop is the universal means to open ANY door!

    Use your flashlight to lift the walls right off of you!

    "If your stuck under rubble don't flatulate to try to get it off!"

    All of the Above..........

    Try to absorb as much of the radiation as possible with your groin region. After 5 minutes and 12 seconds, however, you may become sterile

    That's some good advice

    (How can I add a smilie?????????????)

    If you see a nuclear explosion on the horizon, pull to the side of the road and wait for the blast to hit you.

    My favorite symbol didn't make ti to that site. At the actual government site, there's a symbol of an RX bottle with some pills spilled out. The obvious message; "If you just pop some 'Ludes, you could relax and stop worrying about the whole thing"! (Deeewd)
