This is a question Ignoring Instructions

When I was small, a friend of mine waved a big plastic bottle at me and asked me if I "wanted some drinking yoghurt?" I pointed out the "do not drink" label, but no, he was convinced this was a big jug of a particularly strange, liquid yoghurt that was briefly popular in the 70s.

He was sick for hours, after consuming a suprisingly large quantity of washing liquid.

What instructions have you ignored?

And of course there's the fire extinguisher one.
I never was one for wearing goggles. One day, I had to use the fire extinguisher, eject it into a large beaker thusly creating dry ice. Cold doesn't begin to describe it. So I got someone to hold an apron over the beaker, creating a lid between the dry ice and the rest of the world, and let rip.
Shoulda worn goggles.
All I remember is a jet of deadly cold, poisonous snow racing facewards. It stuck to my hair. It stuck to my lips. But most importantly, it stuck to my eyebrows.
Then it started to turn back into CO2. So my head had it's own little atmosphere, composed of little to no oxygen. Which wasn't a good idea. It looked cool, though, my head was a misty ball of...mist. Then the lack of oxygen caught up with me and I thought it'd be a good idea to get some proper air. It wasn't really easy. And all this while, the ice in my eyebrows was making it's way into the eyes, causing a searing pain both from the cold and the pure carbon dioxide doing something unwanted to my eyes.
And the teacher just laughed.
