Peculiar Signs

Ever since my Europe trip, I've thought it would be cool to collect images of interesting signs.

On the train from Germany to Denmark, there was a sign -- rays emanating from a hand -- posted next to the doors between compartments. The sign was supposed to indicate that passengers should wave their hand to open the automatic doors. I thought, however, that I was supposed to hold my hand up and wait for energy waves to flow from my palm. In Denmark, I laughed over a sign that I interpreted as meaning, "Do not drive your car off the end of the pier."

It seems someone beat me to the punch. Check out Swank Signs, a hilarious Web site that I came across. Half the fun is reading visitors' posted comments on what various signs might mean.
