Management: Sorry guys, but due to recent economic influences, we've had to cut spending.

There's no telling who thought of it first but this is really beginning to catch on:-

I guess this is OK unless he actually needs to read the instructions whilst he's welding

Of course then there are those who have to do it in style

..... and don't understand the importance of safety paper

But for the height of stupidity I think this takes the biscuit: I mean he's not even wearing safety boots:-....

Not only are we alone in the Universe, the other travelers seeing this will never come for a visit. We have not held Darwin Awards in a while, I think it is past due.
