For Steve Jobs, Who Thought Every Concept Had a Clear Icon

Below, three signs I saw a few months ago.

(Hint: They’re all water-related.)

Perhaps these mean

  1. Be careful on these old stairs, because they’re crooked.
  2. This is a safe neighborhood, so no need to lock your door.
  3. The containment dome for this nuclear reactor is leaking, and we’re advising you to high-tail it out of town.

Something like that.

Or maybe this:

  1. Please set your brake on the ferry (WA State ferry system)
  2. Turn off your engine (WA ferries)
  3. This way to a tunnel to help your car escape from New York (street signs for the Lincoln, Holland, and Battery Tunnels, New York City)
