Speeding up Darwinism...

Postby Nikki Nyx » Sun Aug 13, 2017 6:46 pm

Fidget Spinners are choking and fire hazards.
Fidget spinners contain small pieces such as batteries and ball bearings which can be a serious choking hazard among children. Choking incidents have been reported in children as old as 14.

In May, a 10-year-old girl choked on part of her fidget spinner, which caused her to have the piece surgically removed.

In June, a Bluetooth-enabled fidget spinner that played music reportedly burst into flames after being left to charge for 45 minutes in a family home in Alabama. Fortunately the fire was caught by the family and only left a burn in the carpet.

In May, another battery-operated fidget spinner caught fire after being charged for less than half an hour. The family did not have the original charger and used one from another device.

What are the facts? Again and again and again-what are the facts? Shun wishful thinking, ignore divine revelation, forget what “the stars foretell,” avoid opinion, care not what the neighbors think, never mind the unguessable “verdict of history”--what are the facts, and to how many decimal places? You pilot always into an unknown future; facts are your single clue. Get the facts!
