    I remember seeing a sign, ‘Do not jump over handrail.’
    The handrail was directly over a twenty foot drop to the road below.
    And you have to figure … the sign was put up after some idiot jumped over the railing.

    That’s like the warning on a packet of peanuts that says “allergy warning. May contain nuts”.

    or, if you pay for a package vacation, and have to do the activities of said package vacation. it doesn’t sound like a vacation, it becomes work.

    At my sons school (very modern with an open aula in three stories) they had a “don’t”-set of rules. One of them was “don’t lean too far out over the railings”. Like Verne comments: How far is too far?

    Sadly, Verne is just one of an increasing number of nit-wits that actually need warnings like “Do not stand above this rung”, on the TOP rung of a ladder, or “Warning, contents may be hot” on a cup of coffee, or “Do not use in the bathtub” on an ELECTRIC hair dryer!
    My theory is that if you actually NEED a warning like that, you are just too stupid to survive on your own!
    Remove ALL the liability warnings, and let nature, and Darwin, thin the herd!
    It could only help to increase the aggregate intelligence level of the Gene Pool!

    Do ya mean like the one that says: “Don’t feed the animals”? Sadly, someone ignored that one about three million years ago; that’s why the planet is crawling with huamsn today.

    I saw a similar sign on a railing…at Niagara Falls. It was a very very long way down…but apparently the sign was needed. :o

    My sister once told me that when she went to Niagra Falls she had this strange urge to jump over. I sort of understand, I have the same feeling about open heights. Neither of us are suicidal, its just this strange part of some people’s id.

    They sell vacations in packages? With my luck it would be packaged in that unopenable plastic wrap.

    I’m shuddering even THINKING about leaning over a railing. I’m always deathly afraid that the railing is going to come loose/ edge is going to crumble/ glass will break. I have no problem wandering around on top of our roof, diving off of high dives, or climbing up trees, I’ve climbed mountians! but railings? UG!

    You’re proof that “huamsn” shouldn’t be on Earth. Leave it for Humans.

    Water does have that hypnotic, drawing effect, I was told decades ago.

    How about elevators that are outside of the building?

    I guess Verne’s shell doubles as a heat shield, I hear that re-entry gets very hot.

    At the top of my ladder it says STOP!
