Seeing danger, they fled.
Fleeing danger, they saw.
Feeling danger, seeing flight, fleeing feeling
Their imaginations were too powerful for their own good.
(Deadly sneaker waves…imagine!)

I love love the poem but the pictures – oh my! Are Icelandic people especially cautious? Or especially daring? Or perhaps especially litigious? Whatever trait caused them to make all those signs, I salute it – and you for the hilarious slideshow.
What’s funny, Amanda, is that although I found these signs at various sights, they were never overdone. There weren’t 50 warnings, just a couple, which I appreciated. It was like them saying, “Look, we told you it was dangerous, so…no crying after you are buried under a rock slide.” I love the drama of the signs. They couldn’t possibly make it clearer!
