From the Required Safety Rules

More great literary stylings from the General Safety Rules Governing Normal (Non-Emergency) Operations--

8.18. Keep drawers tidy to avoid punctures from scissors or other hazards that may be hidden under a pile of paper.

Obviously, something written in response to that whole Sandy Berger incident from a while back.

Anyway, this is just a good common-sense rule--just remember how your mom always told you to wear clean underwear.

And then, there's this:

8.19 Keep razor blades, thumbtacks, and other sharp objects in a closed drawer.

No word on how to get them out.

Finally, from Chapter 17 Chain Saw Safety:

17.4 Do not handle or operate a chain saw when you are fatigued, ill, or upset; or if you have taken alcohol, drugs, or medication.

Man, I tell you what, they've taken all the fun out of everything.

So I guess they would not have approved of when my friends and I went to another friend's house and rev-ed a chain saw in the driveway at around midnight.

Well he was being a total dip and we thought he deserved it.

I don't know--that might be covered in the Emergency Operations manual.
