"Do not ride when it's wet outside" is new to me.
Apparently puddles are now deadly.

I'm curious: Does this sort of nonsense get stuck on bikes

Not ime. Are pedestrians and bath users also warned about
the dangers of their activities?


Only French baths with French telephones:

When people can and do sue for the least little thing then you should not be surprised when warning stickers sart to appear that warn against anything and/or everything. Thank your litigious society for that bicycle sticker.

LOL! My goodness, those are hysterical. At least the second picture
tries to prevent asshats.

Although the Dremel manual's question about "have you actually read this
manual" is apropos if the purchaser has the Y chromosome.

The linked page from your page is also amusing:

Bicycles get special treatment, though. 30 years of propaganda have
been used to portray bicycles as insanely dangerous.


Hmm, after this year's misadventures I had to do some convincing of my
wife that it isn't. :-P

Commie-named street, satellite dishes ... what kind of electrical literacy
could be expected? Written warnings don't work, sand bathing would be more
appropriate.

No, they get no warnings - or at least, very few. But this is a country
where inane warning labels are everywhere. It's easy to find examples:

After one particular incident in our control room, I invested in a dozen
of these;

Manglement were not impressed, despite my protestations as to the
efficacy and cost advantages.

The world is full of dangerous things so we need the advice
and wisdom of our civil service overlords to get through the
day, especially vulnerable populations and those of
diminished capacity such as citizens of Oregon:

The cited comments notwithstanding, I'm pretty sure Oregonians are calm
about this. I hadn't even realized there /was/ a new law until the
(non-Oregonian) media started hyping the "reaction."

'Course, it could be because the law only affects a tiny (and remote)
portion of Eastern Oregon. I have cycled there (in some of the affected
counties), and probably bought gas there too, don't recall. I think
they'll be fine.

More fake news! MOGA! I think the escalating gas tax is more newsworthy and the home inspector pocket-padding energy audit now required in connection with the sale of homes.

BTW, Trump is totally f****** Oregonians with the new tax law (limitation/elimination of deduction for taxes), offshore drilling, threatening monuments, anti-dope (now generating nice tax revenues), etc., etc. Every time I turn on the news, it's WTF? What did I do wrong? Why do the feds want to f*** me and my fellow Ory-goonians? We're just fun-loving Bohemians in Nikes..
