there is a funny story of some dial devices on fire, and still passing

and an equally funny story of said devices being held up in customs in a particular european country because they said "TNT" on the outside of their crates...

I ordered a new personal PC back in March(?) from Lenovo (discount overstock offering). Everything shipped immediately but was delayed in transit, due to a "Live Entity" inspection hold placed on it by the US FDA. The packing list included an item identified as "mouse" (it was right under the item "keyboard"). I'm waiting for nVidia or ATI to come out with a next-gen product named "Nuclear XForce" or "Plutonium Wonder". :-)
