Ominous Signs That Mean Business

The world is big, and with it come a lot of threats. There's quickly rising water, bees, brain-eating amoebas, big holes and errant explosions to name a few. To name a few more, there are cliffs, electricity, angry biting monkeys, slippery cliffs, dangerous machinery and fires. So it makes sense we'd need a lot of spooky signs that say a lot with their creepiness.

Creepy Warning Signs That Do Their Job Well

There are a lot of hazards out in this big world of ours. There are unexploded mines, vipers, bees, big holes, radioactive caves, cliffs and biting monkeys.

Scary Things that Happened to Divers

There's a reason divers have to go through training programs. There's a whole lot of danger that can come with being a hundred feet from the surface, getting all your air out of a can. Usually the biggest danger itself is human error. It's pretty common to be afraid of large bodies of water, and people see really creepy things at sea.

Twitter Thread: Star Trek and the Inhumanity of Gig Economies

Twitter user _danilo uses an example from Star Trek to explain some of the dangers of having an industry that lacks face-to-face interaction with its own workers. It's scary enough to imagine your job being done by a cold, calculating robot, but what if your boss's job was done by a cold, calculating robot? For something with more Star Trek fun and less technocratic dread, here's an awesome Tumblr post on how hard humans go in Star Trek.

Terrifying Signs that Speak the Language of Fear

Put simply, there are a lot of things out there that can kill you, such as electricity, fires, electricity fires, strong currents, loose animals, and accidentally wandering into firing ranges. Even a big hole can be ridiculously dangerous if it's deceptively placed. It's better that we have spooky signs to remind us that, while we're basically at the top of the food chain, we aren't invincible. The signs can get pretty creepy though.
