It seems a good idea to pay for one’s underground ticket, but the consequences of not paying are worse than I imagined – a criminal record and no future.

Meanwhile at Nymphenburg (click to enlarge):

  1. “Radschieben verboten” is a new one on me.
    I wonder if the free-running toads abide by it?

    On another note, I see that the all-too enticing cover over the fountain (or well) in what is probably a popular family picnic venue is adorned with a “Verboten” sign. Those lovely kids are unfortunately growing up in a prohibition culture.

    I suppose the sign may just be a precaution against excessive litigation, but I find it sad that anything that kids do in public places seems to be prohibited in somebody’s eyes. If the world is full of petty restrictions, it is more difficult to teach kids what standards are reasonable and justified.

  2. Yes, the kids seem blissfully unaware of the sign.
    And the parents have probably not scoured the area sufficiently to notice it, either.
    Looks like a legal loophole to me: are the parents legally obliged to go ahead of their kids and discover the prohibition signs on every structure the kids may be tempted to scramble onto? (In other words, do parents have to peruse every scene to find out what is prohibited?)
    Unless a large and obvious warning is displayed all over the park and the caf

  3. Dichtung: You’re right, they do have a certain class. I hadn’t really thought about that.

    Victor: I copied over the comment and opened comments, but no doubt that will be the end of it, as the entry doesn’t appear on the opening page now.
    Comments are always closed after a couple of weeks, unfortunately, because the blog software has its limits and I never seem to find time to move.
