Annoying Meme's #4? Gotta be about up to 4 by now.

Today's Meme is more about the ability of some people to purposely stay stupid.

I just came across a report where someone claims that Huggies wipes has glass in it. All I can think about at this time is how FUCKING STUPID people have become. I mean, REALLY! Think about this for a second.. no I mean it: THINK ABOUT THIS!

1. WHY would Huggies have glass in their wipes?  What benefit would that be to the wipe itself? NONE.

2. Does everyone instinctively think that everyone else is trying to harm them with a product? Yeah...I got over that when I was 8. I used to think my parents were poisoning me with those dark krispies in the Rice Krispy box.  

Much as it is your wettest dream to think that corporations are just out to harm as many people as possible, let me reassure you that IT JUST IS NOT TRUE. STOP IT!!!   Another time where common sense and about 2 seconds of thought would render that untrue. Companies are out to make a profit, yes? How can they make a profit if they are harming their customers?!  The lawsuits alone would kill the company.

3. Try watching television once for the sole purpose of education. There is a show we watch regularly called, "How it's Made." on the Discovery Channel. It will run you through how many objects in your life are made. Some are downright fascinating. They show the complexity of the process as well as the safety procedures created to make sure everything you get is safe.

Most companies that deal with food and/or baby products have multiple steps + a quality control process to ensure that no foreign objects get into their products. It starts at receiving the raw goods and ends in the warehouse. I know this because I worked as a Maintenance Mechanic for a few years at a potato chip factory. I also what How It's Made.

Metal detectors not only detect metal, but anything dense. It will sound off an alarm and automatically stop the machine.  They now have these computer aided vision systems that can photograph, determine if the product is up to spec, and spit it out within .001th of a second. It's amazing stuff.

4. WHY would a company use glass and/or fiberglass in a baby product? Are ya THAT gullible? Both glass and fiberglass have no ability to hold fluids and are horrible at cleaning up fluids. Oh and they are pretty expensive. Wet wipes are made by making a wipe out of cotton fiber and then adding the wiping fluid to it. There's no glass involved. Probably none on the machines too. Why? Because any factory that makes baby products will have to be cleaned, sanitized and inspected each week. Any glass windows create places for microbes and make it harder to sanitize machines...they just aren't worth it.

The WORLD is BEGGING you to use your brain.
