DARRENBAREFOOT.COM/HALL

What's the point? -- This is the self-described "Hall of Technical Documentation Weirdness." It features photos or scans of totally bizarre instructions and signs. Sometimes, as in the case of a Japanese bathroom sign, it's just a matter of things getting lost in translation. Other times, as in the instructions for blowing up a large animal carcass or using a superhero to tell you how to set up your TV, it's just inexplicable.

What to look for --You can e-mail your own samples of strangeness to the site's manager. For more weird signs in the same vein, also check out the Stick Figures in Peril Pool at flickr.com: flickr.com/groups/stickfiguresinperil/pool/.
