Warning signs are posted to keep us safe from people and our surroundings. Usually, these signs are made very simple so that all can understand it at first glance. Sometimes without context, some signs come across as very weird and creepy. Here are some of them.

26Rape Sign in South Africa

The rape reported in this area in South Africa is indeed tragic and alarming, but it must be noted that this area has never been regarded as safe.

27Pole of Inaccessibility

This is the Australian pole of inaccessibility. It is one of the most remote places on earth and is nearly 1000km away from the coast in all directions.

28Welcome to Northern Ireland

Bullet-riddled “Welcome to Northern Ireland” sign, on the Ireland/Northern Ireland border. The border area is a known hotbed for conflict between Republican paramilitaries and British security forces.

29Radioactive Material Sign

No Digging! This was photographed deep in Illinois woods, in a small clearing, a quarter mile off the main path.

Do you want to play a game? In Australia, some of the highways are so flat and long and uneventful that they put these trivia signs up in "fatigue zones" to help drivers stay awake.


  1. Once spent some time in Coober Pedy, Outback Australia. While chatting to one of the locals he invited us back to his Underground home to talk while he got some “work” done. We were all having a quiet beer in the relative cool when he starts fiddling with some ingredients behind him telling us he was getting his work stuff together while we talked. Next thing l know he’s roughly measuring ingredients with a smoke hanging out of his mouth, turns out he was making his own “Dynamite”, well we all got out of there pretty quick but when talking about it later with a local the comment was “that’ll me Mick, he’s pretty harmless but he has had a couple of cave ins in the last few months, some people are just unlucky l guess”. We visited a few more times while there, just not after a drink session or when he was smoking and working. True. Lol
