Wow, it's really surprising how few of these apply to American life in the 1970s. Literally, maybe 5 out of the whole bunch, in my experience (I was 10 years old in the middle of the 70s). Interesting!

Coco,

These might be british things. It doesent apply to German life as well. Lots of these I have never heard of.

Keziah,

German here also. #3, #16 (I had one!!!), #18, #25, #36 were well known in my childhood.

#8 known as safe but expensive.

Apparently judging from the number of heating related ones the 70's was really cold...

Jeff,

The climate alarmists were warning of an impending ice age during the 70's. When that turned out to be false, they switched to warming.

All of these are only a danger to morons, and I say let 'em have it. You get what you deserve.

I grew up in the UK & turned 12 in 1970. I can't believe the amount of idiots out there that find these things dangerous.
#3.. electric knife, still safer than a regular sharp knife
#8.. electric fire, you would have to deliberately electrocute yourself
#14.. Pressure cooker, still use mine today never blew up
#18.. Imagine the damage an electric mixer would do if you can't control a hand powered one
#22... Don't blame the 70's on that one. cigarettes have been around much much longer
#24... Funny, no comment with this which I found the most troublesome because the carbon from the burning kerosene (or paraffin as the Brits call it) would magnetically attach to the screw heads and nails used to secure the drywall to the studs, leaving 1/2" dots all over the walls
