High Standards

    I was looking through a catalogue of British Standards today, and found some rather amusing titles.

    BS 6935-5:1988 Wheelchair tests. Methods for determination of overall dimensions, mass and turning space.

    What would that be then, how to use a ruler?

    BS 7710-1 - Urine absorbing aids. Vocabulary. Conditions of urinary incontinence.

    Isn't anyone just a little bit curious about this one? I thought about ordering it just to find out, but I reckon I'll leave it to Danger (unless Moonbear is familiar with the standard?)

    My personal favourite:

    BS 770-1 - Methods for chemical analysis of cheese.

    Can anyone find any others?

    Let me get a couple more beers down the funnel and I'll get right on it.
