Whenever I get a CAT scan, I point out to the techs that half the warning
label is missing: all I see is "Do not start into laser", and not the rest
that reads "with remaining eye".

Don't mind me: I just spent *far* too long doing my "mid-year performance
checkin" for my employer, in Workday (the sooner that dies, the better),
and it was designed by idiots, and is not suitable for what 90% of the
company does.... And I'm *really* aggravated.
