Signs of Vienna

These are great. Of course, I might be biased because I also love Boy Gee.

The weird bean looking thing appeared in variations all over the place in Vienna. The two red circle stickers appeared in our train cabin. Since these lack the typical diagonal red strike-through line of the international DO NOT symbol, I interpret them to mean, please climb out the window and please throw ENORMOUS bottles out the window. The second to last one is a sign on a public restroom (always denoted as WC in German speaking contries). If you look at the second frame, it appears to be instructing you not to punch something over the toilet. The last one is my favorite as it indicates where to go when you have discovered a mysterious rectangle.

I'll see if I can find a picture of the kindly grandmother sticker that was all over Nantes.

I think maybe they haven't made up their minds yet as to how they feel about people throwing bottles the size of children out of the windows. It might be a touchy subject in the culture.
