Watch the spacing - again

The may be one of the largest shops for second-hand books but probably not the one of the largest bookshops that has had more than one owner.

2 against 1

I say we head left for the entrance.

[Pretty obvious where that one is]

Should you really be driving?

If you need to be told to let faster traffic past, then you probably should not be on the road. If you need a picture to show you how to do so, you are seriously short of the necessaries to hold a licence and be in charge of a vehicle.

Millars's Pillars

Patrick Millar, who found this is a carpark in Auckland, NZ, says. "I know about these moving columns, they are everywhere. I am glad to see that some Authorities still have a sense of humour."

Um, not overly helpful.

James found this on HP's website when looking for some technical documentation for a new home pc.

Rate this page, how useful was it?
Hmm.. is there a zero option?

Beware soggy sandwiches

Joe B, who found and submitted this says. "I'm somewhat conflicted about this sign, whether it's necessarily a tragedy of literacy. The our/are mistake is pretty sad, especially since the correct spelling is directly above ("try our pick up window"), but misspelling "morning" by adding the "u" to form "mourning" isn't altogether discouraging. At least he knows its a correct spelling, even if it's incorrect for this message."

Still, no point crying about it is there?

C'mon, give us a clue

Robin Henry sent this sign that appears on the road between Al Ain and Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. Robin says the road is well fenced, so camels or other animals can't get to it, so who knows what the suprises may be.

Still, if they told us, it wouldn't be a surprise, would it?

Thanks for sharing that with me

I really needed to know that now that I am stuck in this Transit Lounge for the next two hours or so.

I guess them warning me means I can't sue if I later get cancer but wouldn't it be better to remove the carcinogen since I do not have the option of removing myself from the area?

How does that work then?

If I take my newspaper with me, how does that help them recycle it?
