…when you’re lookin to the left, it’ll get’cha from the right.

signs worry me.

when municipalities and governments spend a lot of money posting signs that sate the obvious, this tells me we’re on a decline as a species. I noticed this many years ago when I saw a sign on the opposite side of the highway saying ‘Wrong Way’. First of all, how the hell do you know that I’m going the wrong way? and secondly, If you’re driving the wrong way on a highway & the oncoming traffic isn’t enough of an indication for you that you may have made a mistake at your last merge, you need to have your license taken away from you and enroll in a course in common sense. As well, this sign was clearly visible from my side of the highway which might instill doubt in anyone who could read it.
In this sign’s case, if you’re going to walk out into traffic without looking out for a truck that might turn you into pancake, you’re probably not the sort of person to heed signs either.

we’re on our way out as a species. the signs are everywhere.

    is this from Vancouver?? i’ve only seen these on Hastings street where are all the junkies and crack heads live. Makes sense to be there, they are the dumbest, clumsiest people i’ve seen.

  • it’s actually up near Kitsilano (where the other dumbest, clumsiest people converge).

    THIS IS RELEVANT

    We have a lot of these in Vancouver and every time I see one I flash back to my first visit to the UK when I looked the wrong way and stepped out in front of a taxi. Lucky for me, it only hurt a few days.

  • thanks for the feature, titus m’man! (That was taken on granville & broadway in front of the… is it a Blenz there?)
