Nanny State

By bargee
Seen at the top of the Schilthorn in Switzerland - a sign advising you not to wear high heels for the 9000 foot drop over the edge. Maybe if you are that stupid, you should be just left to get on with it.

Some years ago we walked up (scrambled up) to the Schilthorn from the valley bottom, and just before the cafe we saw this sign. We just fell down with laughing.

Peter - it maybe that they are advising that you should not approach the drop wearing only one high-heeled shoe?

If so, its another example of Swiss thoughtfulness and attention to detail as it could be very dangerous as well as uncomfortable!

(Then again - maybe not Smile
