I was hanging out in Tucson, near the U of A (go Wildcats!) and would wake up an extra 30 minutes earlier than the rest of the clan to go running. The runs weren't anything special nor anything long. They were just enough to get the blood flowing and wake up the mind. I failed on both accounts but at least I got in some exercise.
I laughed at the idiocy of the sign. Seriously, do people not already know this? Are there people who would look at the flood waters and go, "Hmm, I think I can make it,"? Sadly, I bet that sign was posted after an event happened. Some people just couldn't figure it out on their own. Naturally the government's only recourse was to post a sign. (As opposed to the highly unpopular policy of adding candidates to the annual Darwin Awards.)
Then I got to thinking, what are some other signs that are out there and shouldn't be necessary? (Ya know, because what else is there to do when running at excruciating slow paces in unfamiliar territory than think about the idiocy of others?) Of course, I asked my good friend Google for some help. There were a bunch. So I narrowed my search to water related incidences. Here's what we came up with:
|As a triathlete, I probably would have swum for it.|
|Too bad they didn't post a reason why.|
|Stuff they don't teach you in science class.|
|Good thing they warned us.|
