Warning Signs Defeat That Whole Natural Selection Thing

But if your house has a particularly low entryway into the basement, they can be kind of fun.

  1. "duck" picture is too subtle. I would go with foam padding after teh first time I hit my head on it.

  2. My head hurts just looking at that.

  3. That one is almost delightfully cruel. Being tall I have learned to gauge heights well. Submarines had steel everywhere overhead, often just at the right height to clip me an inch or two above my brows. Unlike wood which does have some give, steel just plain hurt. But the sign, and the whole double entendre thing going on? *bonk* Ah, but I would get a good laugh out of it, if I might pout a bit too.

    Way too funny if you ask me. And, well, you sort of just did.

  4. Cute. Knock, knock. I'm here. Yeah, that's usually MY problem. Although ducking late may bash the forehead; better to lean and limbo instead.

  6. I've been looking for one that says "Ducka you head, Lola Bridgida", but the wife won't let me decorate with Flintstone's references.

  7. Oh, that's awesome. Terrible, terribly awesome pun.

    Speaking as a member of the Cessna "diamond" scar club... *groan*.

  8. We could use three of those around our place. The winding stair is a hazard to anyone over 5' 10" or so.

    Don't go down the stairs with a spring in your step.

  9. I can't say too much...

    I smacked my noggin on the low ceiling down the basement stairway of my Pappy's farm house several times over the years... I can still hear that old house laughing at me... or was that birds I hear singing flying around the stars I saw...

  11. That there's a full twelve pounds of WIN!!!

    @Doom...subber here, myself (637-class, aft of frame 57). 5'10" was about the ideal height, but there were still spots I had to duck. And trying to time opening a water-tight hatch whilst rockin-n-rollin in state 5 seas, without getting crushed by 200 pounds of wildly swinging steel...yeah, no fond memories there.

  12. Now see, most would have a problem with their heads hitting frames - I'd have more trouble with the actual stairs themselves. Those look like the worst kind (that getcha in BOTH directions.)

  13. Doom, RabidAlien - Big Bro was on the SeaWolf (the Operation Ivy Bells one) and the Halibut.

    I'm too claustraphobic to take one of the tours of subs offered to families.

  15. Karolina - thank you for your comment which made me smile. But I don't post links that contain a link to a commercial service. I have a wonderful group of readers and commenters and I won't subject them to SPAM via comment, even if well intended, which I believe yours was.

I started this blog so the child I gave up for adoption could get to know me, and in turn, her children, as well as share stories for a family that lives too far away. So please keep it friendly and kid safe. Posts that are only a link or include an ad for an unknown business automatically to to SPAM..
