There's more to literacy than knowing how to spell.

On a day visit to Glasgow. Ate at Il Pavone. Best scampi in the world. Fucking fantastic. Couldn't live here again, but I do love this city.


On each urinal in the ferry crossing the Arsh Sea is the following sign:

To operate the flush system press button then release

At first glance, it's this ridiculous operating of the flush system that catches my eye. Does your toilet have a flush system? Do you operate it? But then I realise that, pointlessly sci-fi though that may be, it's "then release" that's the really stupid bit. Perhaps, before they installed these signs, people didn't.
