That sort of made smoke come out of my comely little ears. pfft!

Uh, people used to play with x-ray match-eens in shoe stores, too, but they couldn't have done that if it could have caused any harm, right? The people who created those things already knew everything there was to know about everything. I'm sure they thought it out from every conceivable angle before setting it into motion.

We should all just lie back and rest easy, confident in the wisdom of the experts.
