Good morning everyone,

It's starting to get cooler outside, it almost feels like winter is just around the corner...ha ha! Overnight lows all week will be around 1C or 2C and daytime highs will see temperatures hover around 9C or 10C. At the moment, it doesn't look like we've got any rain in the near future, but Tuesday and Wednesday are looking pretty dreary-I wonder if we might see some rain those days...

Notices and warnings are everywhere, so it’s easy to simply look past them. But these ones spotted in Japan are a little harder to ignore.

If you spontaneously sex change…

“For men only. Women, please do not use. Also, please refrain from making up rules that you’re ‘a man just for now.'”

Apparently,  sometimes when public bathrooms are crowded, older Kansai women will go into the men’s room instead while saying “I’m a man just for now!” If I hadn’t witnessed an old woman in a busy bathroom at Osaka Station myself, doing her business with the stall door wide open, I wouldn’t have believed this.

Idiots everywhere

signs sapporo university

“To Hokkaido University Department of Agriculture students using bike parking: a request regarding the keeping of pathways.
We understand that as students you are busy with studying, research, extracurricular activities, job hunting (and making preparations to prepare for job hunting, etc…), illicit sexual relationships, troubles at home, etc. Please do the best you can in each situation.
Now, about how students are using the bike parking area. Unfortunately we’ve been seeing some idiots who park their bikes jutting out around the entrance. And not just near the entrance—most of the idiots are parking their bikes sticking out into the pathways. In other words, most of those using the Department of Agriculture’s bike parking are idiots. The essence (lol) of this parking lot is to preserve the pathways. This is all something an idiot wouldn’t be able to comprehend, but just try thinking about it as best you can in your idiotic way.”

This one goes to the dogs

signs for the dogs

“Dear dogs, When you go for a walk with your human, please make sure they bring a scoop and some bags.”

Life-sucking kisses

This was found at a university library. It makes you wonder if these are all things that have once happened there…

Crime and Punishment

signs if we catch you

“To anyone who urinates here: If we catch you we will kill you.”

You probably don’t want to test this out.

The bill to end all bills

signs post no bills

“Post no bills.”

Says the posted bill.

Good food, better service

Nothing like a little humor (or threats of death) to get people’s attention!

Have a great day!

Hahahaha(^^;; So funny!!
Those who noticed and warned must have studied therapy. People can keep rules in a good sense of humor than directly warning. Btw, how do you find such as interesting articles? (≧∇≦)
