We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I think one of my favorites is in our parking garage. The disabled access routes (those crosswalks in blue) all have big blue signs strategically placed on posts at the end that say in big letters, "DO NOT BLOCK DISABLED ACCESS." However, the signs are placed so that if there are vehicles parked in the two disabled stalls on either side of the access, a wheelchair then would not be able to get around the signpost.
I always know that there is a story behind such pictures, but the sites that aggregate and distribute them seem to revel in taking out context. A popular one recently was of a handrail at the opposite angle to the staircase, but taking even a moment to look closely one could see that this was the result of vandalism rather than incorrect installation. Subsequently I saw many cropped versions of the photo that helped to obscure the lower broken handrail bracket -- I guess it didn't fit with the theme of worker incompetence.
I'd really like to know more about this picture of the sign-post in the middle of a parking-lot traffic lane.
