    Unconscious Humor / Predictive Text Mistakes.

    There is a thread like this on another forum that I visit and it helps to lighten the day.
    We all make mistakes in typing and the predictive text / autocorrect functions can make even more.
    I've noticed a few on here over the last few months.

    So with no malice to the original posters I will start this new thread and see how it goes.

    Everybody feel welcome to post any 'funnies' you spot, but go easy on the OPs it may not have been their fault.

    The mods might even want to make it a 'sticky' if it gets popular.

    The first sign makes sense. In slow moving traffic, the temporary availability of an extra lane can make congestion worse, as the disruptions to traffic flow from the traffic merging outweigh the benefit of temporary extra capacity.

    The capacity of the overall stretch of road is set by the narrowest part. I expect that the closed off lane disappears at the top of the hill before the roadworks have ended, so it is better for traffic flow to keep the additional lane closed. The additional lane is provided primarily for overtaking during running at normal speeds, which is not relevant to driving in roadworks conditions.


    Things might be different if we could import the careful observance of "merge in turn" from places such as Guernsey.

    I'd got the humour thing. The first sign simply makes sense to me. The last one in your post, however, is brilliant.

    For more fun, Google for "Chinglish" - those fantastic mistranslations from Chinese to English.

    Here are three signs I thought was Funny :-

    Not quite what I was intending for this thread, I was thinking more of unconcious humour made in posts on this forum, but hey anything that gives us a chuckle is welcome.

    One I found in an old post:

    ..how do I apply for PAP support?
    Err.. ask for a bra?


    PS. I had a good collection of amusing signs that I posted on an Autocad forum a few years ago, I'll see if I can find them again.

    I saw a sign once that said:
    "If you notice this notice, you may notice that this notice isn't worth noticing"

    .. you say you have no issues with mobility don't mention that to the assessor ..................in others words don't shoot yourself in the foot.
    Now that would give you issues with mobility.
