Signs are generally placed to protect the reader from lurking danger. Forbidding you from doing something in order that you will live to be forbidden from doing something else.
Some things are to protect something other than the self such as the grass. As we can see however unless your life is in danger being forbidden doesn’t stop that many from doing the forbidden act.
Again for safety. Most would follow these forbidden activities.
I wonder whether they were concerned for explosion. I can tell you that not too many accepted that the other activities were forbidden. Australia really does have the nicest public toilets and times like these I dreamt of them.

In the school were thousands were murdered was a sign forbidding smiling. I didn’t need to be told not to smile the place was so hauntingly sad. These things continue to happen and like Paula, our host of Thursday’s Special, I wish you all a Thursday of Peace.
