But if you don't clean the lint trap then you did start the fire.
Sorry, I'll get my coat.

- Unfortunately, we put your coat in the dryer, and it was lost in the fire we didn't start. 22.214.171.124 17:05, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
This explains why my dryer keeps bursting into flames. And why no insurance agencies will even consider letting me get homeowner's.While most people have mass on Saturday, I have mine relative to my inertia (talk) 16:36, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
Minor objection with the comic, but in my experience, it's easier to grow up without knowing about taxes than stop, drop and roll. My 5 year old has learned stop, drop and roll in kindergarten, but nothing about taxes. I have a similar recollection of my childhood. It wasn't until my first job as a teenager that I paid any attention to it. 126.96.36.199 17:12, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
"Most residents of most countries are legally obligated to pay, or at least file, their taxes annually"
This note is quite US centric, as I don't believe this is true of most countries. At the very least, this is certainly not the case in most of Europe - taxes are not filed manually if you're a standard employee and not the owner of your own business, in which case it would be perfectly possible to grow up without ever learning how to do this. 188.8.131.52 17:18, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
