1. Is it safe to spray liquid nitrogen all over your house?

7. What Mod-29 said! 🙂
8. Is it safe to alternate sleeping between the north (where your pillow and head goes) and south (where your feet go) ends of your mattress on the same unwashed sheets – thus getting feet skin cells on your face and face skin cells on your feet?
9. Can you eat the contents of the frozen pack of peas that you just used on a fresh bruise to reduce its swelling for the past hour?
10. Is it safe to get a job as a parking enforcer?
Okay, but if no kids are allergic, why ban peanuts?
7. What DY said!
In small-to-medium-sized schools, there is a high chance of no allergic kids. The school can just ask.
RebYidd23: Many reasons
1) Those non-allergic kids can have allergic siblings.
2) The school building may be used as a disaster relief zone in an emergency, and allergic may be directed to take refuge in said school building during a cs”v emergency precisely because it’s a somewhat controlled safe zone for peanut sensitive children.
3) A kid becomes allergic later on.
4) Next year there may be an allergic kid.
5) Why not? What is the alternative? Schools must be prepared for emergencies and constantly update the supplies on hand – and up their insurance to cover the costs of an allergy emergency? Put lives at risk? Why not just eat other foods?
6) Even kids/people who aren’t deathly allergic to peanuts may still have unpleasant reactions to aflatoxins – and now they have a reason to find a healthier alternative for them.
“1. Is it safe to spray liquid nitrogen all over your house?”
Liquid nitrogen is dangerous to handle. For example, you could splash some in your eyes.
“9. Can you eat the contents of the frozen pack of peas that you just used on a fresh bruise to reduce its swelling for the past hour?”
Same question, but how about if the peas have been in your freezer for three years and used on bruises a hundred times?
rebyidd i love the randomness
Just ban allergic kids.
Just send kids to the peanutorium
