Well, if they're going to warn against all the dangerous things you can do with an iron, the warning label will be so big they'll have to add one more warning: "Warning! Remove warning label from bottom of iron before using!"

I once had a chineese fortune cookie fortune read "you like chineese food." Strangely enough, it was just about the worst chineese food I had ever eaten.

I once got a fountrne cookie that had fine print on it that said "Note: this "fountrne" is only for entrainment and that it is highly unlikely that any of thing that is written will happen on this fountrne cookie of future predictions is simply for entrainment and the makers of this fountrne cookie or this restaurant is not responsible for any damages or predictions that doesn't come true"

It is an explosion hazard only if there's a cloud of it in the air. A pile of flour won't explode. This is true of alot of grain dust, but I don't know the physics of it. It's very explosive, at any rate, and they take great pains to prevent any kind of sparks from occuring in grain silos.

Apparently, from the warning on Ivan's sander, this is also true of common dust: the implication of the warning is that you shouldn't, say, fill the air with dust in an old building by sweeping, and then turn your sander on, since a spark from the brushes might ignite the dust and cause an explosion.
