On the subject of warning labels, I think my personal favorite is one I saw on a chainsaw recently warning you to 1. not turn the chainsaw on while holding it next to your leg and 2. not operate it while drunk.

Haha makes sense!

I always get annoying on the subway, where you basically see a warning for every goddamn move you might make.
- Please, hold on to railing.
- Please, mind your step.
- Please, do not move while vehicle is in motion.
- Please, mind the gap when subway arrives at the platform (which is like, to scale, this ___________________ wide in real life).

Even when a coffee cup warns you it's hot.... guaranteed because some asswipe sued for things in life that should kind of obvious.

I thought of another great one.  A car commercial showed a truck snowboarding down a mountain and the fine print said something to the effect of: "FANTASY: trucks cannot snowboard down mountains.  DO NOT ATTEMPT."  Really?  REALLY?  Because lord fucking knows someone is going to try to ski in their truck if you don't put up a DO NOT ATTEMPT message!

I think that one is for people with crutches or canes mostly.

That's not a buckyball monster. That's a buckyball Metroid! Skree~
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Why can't I make shit like that with my buckyball?  I wanted to make a star too, but the positives and negatives get all wonky and I'm left with some stupid shitty warped thing....

It's not that hard, you just have to make the building blocks first.  I recommend starting with hexagons (from a loop of 18 balls) because they're easier to mess around with.  They're super stable structures that bond to each other more weakly than within the hexagon, so you can link and unlink them as much as you want while you just play around.

The other major building structure is the triangle (made from 9 balls), but they actually take some planning ahead.  Once you've bonded a couple triangles together it's really hard to get them apart without deforming them and probably ruining the thing you're making so it's a lot harder to just mess around with them.  Though I did make the legs from loops of triangles but that's a pretty simple structure.

Once you get that together... how sturdy is it? How hard would you have to press on the top of that shroom to mess it up?

Sounds like a reasonable girth.

Well, it's definitely got some flex in it but it will restore it's shape after you let go with moderate pressure. 

The legs are the bigger problem.  If they get stuck together they don't come apart...
