I saw this sign

Although well intentioned, this may be the least helpful sign in the world. It's posted on a beach, with no follow up signs or directions. It might as well just say "RUN!"

In order for this sign to be effective, the following criteria must be met:

1. Someone must happen to be standing within a few feet of the sign during a tsunami.
2. That person must be able to recognize that they're in the middle of a tsunami, but not understand that they're supposed to run away from the ocean.

That's a pretty slim demographic they're going for, but I guess if it saves even one life it'll have been worth it.
