Biohazard[edit]

The biohazard graphic is only a symbol, since its meaning is entirely designated by convention and it represents no specific object

As far as I know, the biohazard icon represents a centrifuge, so the statement "it represents no specific object" would be wrong. Greetings, Boolean hexadecimal (talk) 19:55, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

This is incorrect; the symbol was designed to be "memorable but meaningless". See the article. — Hex (❝?!❞) 20:05, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
