Brisbane has signs that make me laugh

I'm not the only one who's not 100% in favour of these birds:



Attention comrades!



This is the first time I have seen a speed limit sign for bicycles. How does a cyclist know how fast they are going?

How does the person with the little ball bearings on his/her feet know how fast she/he is going?

An equally good question. Maybe they are supposed to carry a ball-bearings-ometer.

15 what?!?!? Miles per hour, Kilometers per hour, feet per hour? Or do they only allow 15 bikes at a time?????

Once, in junior high, one of my fellow class mates stuck a paper clip gingerly in a power outlet, then kicked it all the way in. It caused a tiny explosion and left a big black mark on the wall.

Why did I tell you that? The teaching rooms sign reminded me of it, that's why.

I like that story, Jesse. Did your friend make it to adulthood?

And I'd say 15 km per hour. The sign is the same format as the real ones on the roads. 15 feet per hour would be pretty cool too, though.

Aye, I would not call the young lad with a death wish a friend. And alas, I have lost contact with him. I can't even recall their name any long. But I can't recall a name told to me 5 minutes past either....
