Hi everyone!
I hope you had a good start of the year and are already making progress towards realizing your goals for 2022. After all, the year is already 10% over!
This edition of the newsletter is once again full of interesting stuff I found online. But first, a brief story of something odd.
Keep away from fire
A few weeks ago, while putting on my jacket, I noticed it had a “Keep away from fire” tag inside. I thought to myself: duh, this stuff probably burns easily. Then, a few days later, I noticed the same label on some baby clothes.
This took me down the rabbit hole to figure out where the label came from. Turns out that the UK has rules about the flammability of various pieces of clothing. This legislation specifically mentions that manufacturers should put “Keep away from fire” on all clothes that aren’t treated to lower flammability.
I felt like this was stating the obvious, but apparently that’s not the case for everyone.
