    Is it safe to drown?

    You’ve been warned.

    This is not a warning sign. Nothing to see here, please move on.

    Unless you’re a fish.

    The swimming beard already knows, and he told me this,
    so I read that sign for nothing.

    What language is that underneath the english?

    “Mr. Jaws, we have that sign you ordered installed”.

    Not if the water is deep enough to drive

    Thank you. I will go and swim someplace that is more fun.

    Dangerous guitar riffs.

  15. Droll not Troll | 10:03 am |  Vote: Add rating 8  Subtract rating 2  

    … because the water is removed regularly.

    @Huu Yuu: The language of the giant squid. 😉

  17. Marum | 10:16 am |  Vote: Add rating 7  Subtract rating 0  

    @DnT. Is that a similar language to that of the Colossal Squid.

    (Of the Teuthonian group of languages)

    Come on tourista, just get in the water.
    It’s pervertly safe. Come on. Just a little bit.

    hehehehehehhohohohohohohoh harhar har hjar harhar!. :Twisted:

    By “this area” we mean anywhere within a 1 foot radius of the sign. There is a treaty among the see monsters that that’s a safe zone.

  20. Droll not Troll | 11:24 am |  Vote: Add rating 9  Subtract rating 0  

    …but drowning is forbidden, on penalty of death.

    In Thai, the sign says ,”Danger! Do not go down to the sea.”
    Good translation all round.

    1. Give the child
    2. Fall into water incompletely

    Perhaps they mean it’s not dangerous to swim on dry land – it looks like this sign stands in the middle of water and it’s turned away from the coast.

  24. iLock | 3:58 am |  Vote: Add rating 1  Subtract rating 3  

    But reading this sign is very dangerous.
    Why? We can’t say.

    No sharks here. Please die carefully at another beach!

    Actually, the warning in Thai translates to “dangerous, do not swim in this area”. This is like a sick joke to people who can’t read Thai. And the language below English is Cambodian, I believe.

    After guessing the language (Thai) tediously entering it into Google Translate using handwriting input (I don’t know Thai), I managed to get a workable translation.
    อันตรายห้ามลงเล่นน้ำ บริเวณนี้
    DO NOT swim area.

    Just wanted to clear things up.

    I didn’t translate the graffiti, as it is not only too much work, but I think I will mess up because the lettering is less precise and hard for me to interpret.

    Nice, positive warning !

    Talking about the sign only, the beach is apparently safe

    Actually, the sign says (in Thai) “Dangerous DO NOT swim in this area”
    I don’t know how they translated into so much different meaning. Maybe beta version of google translate?

    The scribble at the bottom is Khmer language.

    The actual translation would be DANGER! DO NOT SWIM IN THIS AREA I wonder how many tourists drown after the sign went up? ToT..

    Sounds like a dare to me
