But if things like this weren’t needed, we wouldn’t have The Darwin Awards.
I’ve got such a headache.
That took me too long to realise it said 0 FT NOT OFT
And, Your admitting that?!
Alcohol may have been a factor in the the delay or the admission. 🙂
“You’re” not “Your”…
Thank you. And no capital Y
It doesn’t say oft?
No. It says: “Zero Feet: No Diving.”
It’s next to a pool, and it’s there to warn people not to dive into the shallow end.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled LOLs, already in progress.
“Shallow end” is putting it mildly, no?? I’d say that 0 ft is as flipping shallow as one can get.
This is the sort of pool that slopes into the water, it’s only 0 ft precicely on that edge.
But I can dive in the 1 ft area though, right? That’s my best spot.
Sadly, with all the moron in this world, THEY HAVE to put dumb warning everywhere!
People with no feet usually don’t dive anyway.
It be even funnier if it had said, “Diving Permitted”
I don’t know what I find more offensive: That our lawsuit-happy society now requires moronic warning labels…
or the thought that something like this might actually save some moron’s life.
Seen IRL and agree with this ^^
Oh dude, you’ve no idea. I am an ex swimming pool lifeguard and people really are that stupid. I swear they want to die – sadly I wasn’t allowed to let them.
I swear to god, at a pool near my house, they have that very thing on there
The idea that “common sense” is all that common is a common misconception. Everybody has noob moments; they just hope nobody notices. It’s probably an airborne virus.
The requirement to have this sort of warning is due to the fact that the optical properties of water are such that it looks deeper than it actually is, so there are depths that look safe for diving that actually aren’t. Rather than write the requirement to not bother for water that doesn’t even look deep enough, they just mark everything that’s too shallow. And they probably have it apply to all sides of all pools, for simplicity.
Seriously? I thought that this one was common enough that no one would possibly say that.
No–I saw this at a pool in Bridgeton, MO, where my daughter had a dive meet. In the deep end.;)
The sign was on a walk-in, sloping end where little kids could get in gradually.
how do you swim anyway?
