Conservative protestor unable to tear up anti-fascist sign As posted to YouTube by Nate Gowdy, this gentleman appropriates a counter-protestor's sign and makes strenuous efforts to rip it up. But it's a fancy thick one and he lacks the strength or technique to do the job. Watching him wither under the sarcastic commentary and recording cameras of nearby libs will never not be funny. You've worked so hard, you're so close," a woman filming the painful failure is heard saying. "You've been doing a lot of arm...

The little paper

This sign caught my eye in Souvigny. It says, "The most informed, The Little Newspaper, 6 pages." I don't know what the sign has to do with the building, which is marked with a small plaque that reads Fondation Patrimoine (Heritage Foundation). I don't find anything online about the paper itself. "Le Petit Journal" was a famous Parisian newspaper around the turn of the century (1900, that is), but it has been out of circulation since 1944. I didn't stop to read the little sign under the larger...

Link About It: Redesigning the Wheelchair Symbol into the Accessible Icon

Danish design student Susanne Koefoed created the International Symbol of Access back in 1968 and as ubiqituos as it's become, there's a passivity to the design that's arguably been bested by the newer "Accessible Icon." With its own emoji and escalating...... Continue Reading...

Has the gun-control movement overtaken the sex-control movement?

I say yes, solely on the basis of the signs I'm seeing at the protests that say "Arms Are For Hugging":I can understand thinking of that slogan, with the obvious flipping of the meaning of "arms," but I would expect you to reject it or quickly hear from someone telling you to reject it because it is so discordant with the message of #MeToo. Just because you have arms doesn't make it self-evident that you have a right to hug me. It's saying biology is destiny, like saying "penises are for penetra...

Windows and signs

As promised, here is a typical street view. The shutters are closed. It may be a vacation house, or an unoccupied house. Hard to tell. Or maybe the people who live there just like their privacy. The sign on the door says "beware of dog." Tasha paid no attention. The blue sign says that the street is one way. I learned that when I got my French driver's license way back when. That would be 2005, by the way. Thirteen years ago. Wow. [Author: wcs]

What a load of...

Well, I won't say it. It was nice of the town to designate a spot for Spot. Tahsa didn't need it this time. Please poop outside the castle walls. Merci. We did carry plastic bags around with us just in case. Especially at the gîte, since she did her business on the owners' grass. I had to be a good guest and pick up after her. [Author: wcs]

Everywhere a sign

This sign made me chuckle. There's nothing inherently funny about it, it's just that the front door is somewhere else while the mail goes through the slot in this door. Un presbytère is the parish or clergy house for a nearby church. This one is close to the church I've been posting about, so I assume it's part of that. Put the mail in here, enter over there. The door here is in a little street that winds around the castle wall in Lapalisse. At one point, the street gets very narrow. All along...

That time I didn't violate a rule but I also didn't "feel free."

I think this can be regarded as a photograph of the First Amendment concept known as "the chilling effect."ADDED: This is why it's good for law to be negative. Let the government say what it's forbidding me to do. Don't tell me what I'm permitted to do. It gives the impression that I need affirmative permission for everything.

Are You Leading With Buddha’s Hand Too?

Size and prominence of wording on business signs, product labels and hangtags will often emphasize brand signals. Yet, sometimes decisions are made to scream generic names instead. Never having seen the above shown wacky fresh fruit until recently, my assumption was that Buddha’s Hand represented a clever brand name for a certain type of citron fruit. Nope, generic. The source-indicating information on the above shown Buddha’s Hand hangtag — the trademark — is barely legible, so I’ll help reade...

“I’ll Meet You There”

Can’t help but smile about this quirky handmade sign stumbled upon recently in the Kensington Market district of Toronto. The words are from a poem by Rumi that is generally understood to be about putting aside judgments that divide people and instead to focus on appreciating the wonders of being and the things that connect […]

This and That

A mix of photos taken around Paris: I had hot chocolate at a new coffee place the other day. It looks great, right?, but it was tepid and probably made from a mix. From now on I will ask if it is ancienne, or made in house, like at Angelina’s. My friend and I wandered down rue Mouffetard which is lined with shops. I always think scallops look especially beautiful and photogenic. A waffle for sale. You see them for sale all over France but, in fact, as you can see by the little flags, they ori...

Yes, it's the season. We get it.

Dear copywriters, editors, and reporters: Do you really think you’re being clever with your “’Tis the season” line? Trust us: you are not. I refer you to that wise man John McIntyre, of the Baltimore Sun, reminding us to beware holiday clichés: “’Tis the season”: Not in copy, not in headlines, not at all. Never, never, never, never, never. You cannot make this fresh. Do not attempt it. And yet, and yet. So much ’tis, so little seasoning. The evidence:   A mailing from West El...

Liberal websites absorb/process the Al Franken news, part 1: New York Magazine.

It's hard to keep up with the sexual harassment news, as women (and men!) suddenly speak up about things that have happened over the years, but yesterday's bombshell on Franken blew up this week's narrative, which was all about killing Roy Moore and getting Trump to trip over his dead body. The politically defunct Bill Clinton was strategically deployed to ensure Trump's downfall. It was easy to see that the liberal media had a narrative they were pretty excited about. And then comes Al, too big...

A Sign

Matthew 16:1-12 Many people can point to the moment of their conversion.   Not me.   Christ has dawned on me slowly, like a sunrise, an illumination growing incrementally over decades until my entire world is lit up. One very helpful change in understanding was the realization that Christ, like God, is not an entity separate from me.   The Word permeates my being, for I am his utterance.   All I have to do to find him is to grow still.   When my ego mind is listening instead of speaking, th...

"More than a dozen handmade stickers reading 'It’s okay to be white' surfaced around Harvard Square Wednesday..."

"... prompting Cambridge officials to remove them and a Harvard Law School Dean to denounce the signs as 'provocations intended to divide us,'" Harvard Crimson reports.The stickers appeared to be part of a campaign started on the forum website 4chan, which called upon followers to put up posters with the message in their area on Halloween night. The author of the original post on the site wrote that they hoped the “credibility of far left campuses and media gets nuked” as a result of the inciden...

RIP Robert Blakeley, Designer of the Fallout Shelter Sign

Designer Robert W. Blakeley isn’t a household name, but every American has seen his work. No, he wasn’t employed by Coca-Cola or Ford or Disney, but instead worked for the US government. Blakeley’s most famous design? He came up with the yellow and black fallout shelter sign. Sadly, he died last week at the age of 95.Read more...

"Join us for the Sunday meat raffle."

The Baldwin Street Grille, photographed yesterday. I've never gone in the place, but according to one reviewer at Yelp:I've driven past this place so many times, disappointed I just now figured out what I was missing. The meat raffle was incredibly entertaining with solid choices. Really wish we could've stayed till the end but it was a little long.... What's a "meat raffle"?! Actually, Wikipedia has an article on the subject:A meat raffle is a tradition of raffling off meat, often in pubs a...

Today, on the southern shore of Lake Mendota, not far from the monument that got graffiti swastikas recently, I encountered a kiosk with a bunch of stapled-on signs that caught my attention.

Woman driving a minivan with the stickers “Hillary 2016,” “coexist,” “Not My President Or Yours Either,” and “stop bigotry” slams it into another car...

... after the driver of that car makes an "L" (for loser) sign at her, which she responds to by giving him the finger, and he responds to by pointing a Smith & Wesson .380-caliber handgun at her. She told the police she got "scared and jerked the steering wheel, which caused her to lose control of the vehicle," and he told the police he thought he “made a bad choice” but the bumper stickers were “stupid.”This happened in Missouri. The man was arrested for unlawful use of a weapon. The woman was ...
