The worst dangers can be the ones you are unaware of.
With every device, there are hidden perils. Later, these perils are only discovered through negative experience in people that are revealed in a lawsuit against a company.
We here at Pluh.com would like to take a look today into the hidden dangers of a very common electronic item we use everyday... the computer mouse.
Oh, sure, it looks innocent... but it's time that you got the real scoop on computer mice. Here's a few handy tips to keep in mind next time you decide to use your mouse that just may save your life one day.
If you don't have an optical mouse yet, it would be a good idea to regularly clean the inner rollers of your mouse. Just unscrew the bottom, remove the ball, and clean the built-up lint off the wheels with your finger nail or a small, narrow object
A mouse lying around on the floor can be quite a hazard, because you don't expect it to be there. If you see any mice laying around, go ahead and pick it up before someone trips and injures themself.
A mouse is an electrical device, and like a hairdryer or radio, should not be used in the shower.
When you don't have a shoe or a waffle iron around to fend off a foe, a mouse can be a very tempting thing to grab. Although it seems like it might make a good weapon, it will only end up pissing off your attacker. If pushed into this situation, try to go for a keyboard instead.
Not paying attention to this safety tip may result in your death.
A mouse sounds like the second best thing to rice for putting your main course on top of, but you may accidently cut the cord, making the mouse useless.
There are times when you are thirsty enough to drink anything... but don't let this be a temptation to drink your mouse! Choking is common when people do this. If you do find that you are choking on a mouse, try gently pulling on the chord until it dislodges from your throat.
Mouse have feelings... be considerate. If you've decided that you're ready to move on to a new mouse, let your old mouse know this before doing so.
When you're trying to climb up a ledge that's too tall for you, a mouse can seem like a great substitute for a grappling hook with it's cord and mass. However, the mouse lacks the sharp hooks of a grappling hook, and the cord will be unable to support your weight. Try to find another way up.
In those critical life-or-death moments when someone's drowning, it's easy to lose your cool. Make sure that you grab the life preserver and not a computer mouse. Although they look very similar, a mouse is not big enough and doesn't have enough buoyancy to support a person.
