Unnecessary warning signs (Read 2817 times)


    sorry but do not have a photo, but while out  running yesterday and entering a watershed preserve (my favorite easily accessible trail running place) saw this notice.


                                                                                           DONT DISMISS THIS!


                                                   DO NOT WEAR CALVIN KLEIN"S "OBSESSION" IN THE WOODS

                                                              THE BEARS WILL SMELL YOU AND LOVE ON YOU


    This was posted next to a sign warning people that a bear had been spotted in the watershed recently.  Thinking about this made me realize that maybe it is not really an "unnecessary" warning sign.  But still funny.  There is another closeby county park where I occassionly do some trail running (lots of hills) where there is a sign warning people about the naked man that has been seen running here.  This is also a true story that has been in local papers.  Spotted several different times by different people.  I have not seen the bear or naked man.  If I had the choice would rather run into the bear!

      Here is an example of a lazy Parks and Recreation department:


      WARNING: TRAILS CLOSED SEASONALLY DUE TO FLOODING


      The only problem is, the only time that trail floods is in the late winter/early spring when the melting snow causes the river to swell.  It is late August and that sign is still there.  I've lived in this city my whole life, and not once has the river flooded in the summer.

          Maybe he's on RA.  C'mon, you know who you are.  Fess up!

          Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

            I can't post the picture, but the following sign was posted in the guest house I recently stayed at in Central Asia. I love the last line... (and note the bad English).


            Level four (4) - Red Level 2

            -Do according to Emergency evacuation guidelines as instructed by regional Team Leader

            -Personnel who want to leave the region if the situation further deteriorated should leave now


            Level five (5) - Red Level 3

            -The organization to follow the emergency and evacuation guidelines

            -Lie low. There is no opportunity to evacuate

              This might be an issue for Trent, but not for me because my hair is about 1/3 inch long. I feel safe around hair dryers.

                        Yesterday, I posted that I was having issues with the link button in the editor.  I still am.  Randomly.  Occasionally.  There's a bug out there, I'm sure of it.

                         

                        However, because the link button (when working properly) has changed enough from the previous versions as to be not-as-intuitive, zoom-zoom reasonably thought that perhaps I didn't understand the functionality, and explained it to me.  Which is cool, no worries.  Along came Pete (over-the-hill) and editorialized something which... important to this derail... I did not say.

                         

                        But it was ended, somewhat humorously (to me), that the functionality had tripped up folks... even Trent.

                         

                        I thought that was funny.

                         

                        Turns out it came from beta testing stuff which I have absolutely zero visibility to.  I still think it is funny.

                         

                         

                         

                         

                        Heh, lotsa smrt people have had issues with the editor...including Trent. Tongue

                            For the record, I never said he was.  In fact, the concept that he might be The Man regarding these topics is perfectly fine by me.  A lot has been loaded into stuff I never said nor thought.
