Is the blood on the consumer? Or on the electronics? Whose blood is it? As long as it's not mine, I'm OK with it.
Erm, it was mine and ended up on the consumer and the electronics. It's unlikely to happen to you unless you have a tendency to get nosebleeds, hayfever and get elevated blood pressure from trying to get 'plug-and-play' stuff to do what they say on the box.

You (like me) are British. What you think is real chocolate (Cadbury's, Galaxy, Nestle) is actually imitation chocolate. Stuff like Green & Black's and Lindt is real chocolate.
Oh, that old argument. The EU may be a good idea in some areas but they seem incapable of doing anything sensible when it comes to food. Was it them who wanted to call yoghurt 'fermented milk products' unless it came from a certain bit of Greece? I know they wanted to make it illegal to call the low-quality chocolate 'chocolate' and wanted it renamed to something stupid. Morons.
