OT: Is there ANYTHING in California

>that does not "contain chemicals known to cause ___ (insert your choice: birth defects, reproductive harm, cancer, crossed eyes, long noses, etc.)" ????
I picked up an ordinary household extension cord today and there it was: "California Proposition 65 Warning: This product contains chemicals blah, blah, blah...WASH HANDS AFTER HANDLING."

Sheesh! How many of you go wash your hands after handling an extension cord? Wonder how much that required statement (twice - once in English and once in Spanish) increased the cost of that extension cord?

Yeah, I'm in a weird mood today. :)
