Granted, the people I work with are short and have only been on the planet 3-7 years. Still, I’d describe the short folks I work with as smart at the very least - creative, inquisitive, curious, with even occasional bursts of brilliance. None of them seem dumb as a post at any rate.
Something must happen to humans by the time we reach adulthood though that makes us dumber than a box of rocks. It's true that they took the “Warning: may contain peanuts” of the peanut butter I usually buy. But how do we get stupid enough to need this warning be on a package of birth control pills for cryin’ out loud?
“Do Not Use This Medicine If You Are Pregnant, Plan To Become Pregnant, Or Are Breastfeeding.
The manufacturers must be thinking something along the lines of: not only do we expect the people using our product to be trying to prevent a pregnancy already in existence, but these people can’t read words that don’t start with a capital letter. In fact, we suspect they’re using birth control pills WHILE trying to become pregnant.
Did it occur to the makers of these birth control pills that maybe the people who are taking birth control pills while trying to become preganant SHOULD be taking birth control pills REGARDLESS of whether or not they’re trying to reproduce? And while they’re at it, perhaps they can get their partners to steal some condoms.
