And now, a word about emergencies.
for some reason, i read it as being spoken with an english accent. i guess "you could be injured in a fall" seems particularly british.
Mind the Gas
Ha, I have a picture very like that. I think everyone who visits Alaska and drives down the Richardson highway to Valdez snaps that shot.
I just got back from Alaska and can verify that the state sport is, in fact, shooting at road signs.
A buddy of mine works for Southwest Gas, which is the commercial natural gas provider for most of Nevada, Arizona, and I think Utah. Large portions of the main trunk pipelines are apparently above ground due to variations in terrain or geology. He was telling me the other day about a guy who thought it was a water pipe, despite the numerous and large warning stickers, printed in bright colors, that warn that the pipe is a high pressure gas line.
This fellow was thirsty though, and thought it was a water pipe, so he stood under it and shot the pipe with a gun. My friend relates that the fellow was lucky and the gas didn't ignite. I'm of the impression that this was an unfortunate result, as the greasy charred stain would have served as a warning to the other morons.
Blah blah blah, we regret any inconvenience this may cause you.
Reminds me of a bash.org quote:
The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
