Watch Out

Today, on Friday the Thirteenth, people will sidestep ladders, hop cracks in the pavement, and handle mirrors with particular care, all to escape the bad luck that traditionally dogs this date. In 1896, as this ad not-so-subtly implies ['You cannot explode it!'], danger lurked in the kitchen. Below, a restored Insurance Stove seems a bit flimsy to me; while it might resist explosions, I'd be concerned about the appliance accidentally tipping over.

Have a careful weekend, dear readers.
