the star betelgeuse is dying. and as it is slowly going thru it's death, it is spewing gas everywhere and making a beautiful nebula...

Betelgeuse huh sounds fitting for a dying star in this age of humanity.
The labels fit TOTALY for this day and age where those who buy a product try every way to some how MAKE SURE its broken so they can sue. I blame LAWYERS for ALL OF THIS CRAP, Taxes , spending, waist , its all their fault! Most in congress have a lawyer back ground. Oh well right we public cant fix it?

Well, some of the labels shouldn't have been on that list, they were just bad grammar as opposed to being stupid, and the one warning people not to put pets in the microwave was a reference to the famous urban legend of the poodle in the microwave.  Also, the warning on MS Flight Simulator 2000 seems kind of ominous in retrospect.

Its Arabic for shoulder, because it forms Orion's shoulder.
