Writing a good manual is an art and I took a look at the following historic example I found online. After all, I have worked with similar devices. Most of you will probably not be able to read the text, but the sections about fueling up (and the dangers of the three sorts of fuel) or the section about how to set up the ignition give me the creeps, especially because of the forced humor throughout the entire manual. Just look at the illustrations.

Read the manual before making any attempt to use the device[^]

I expected everything from rocket science for dummies to dry military drill, but not this.

Edit: Why are there penguins on the front cover?
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
