I'm A Fire Sign.

This Fire Exit sign, that appears all over my office building, confuses me:


I mean, I hate to get all pedantic on your sweet arses, but from careful observation of the shadows and light source, dude seems to be running into the room with the fire in it.

Unless, of course, he’s doing a rapid moonwalk or backwards Running Man out of the fire, in which case he TOTALLY DESERVES TO LIVE.

I saw one of those signs at the cinema i went to last night.

When did the word Exit stop being enough?

I keep seeing the new signs everywhere as well.. and yeah, I was a bit baffled, as I thought he was running into it too! Glad Im not crazy!

I've never got some of those signs either. I've seen signs that tell wheelchair sitters they must face their wheelchairs towards the back of the bus for safety but then they draw a wheelchair on the ground that's facing TOWARDS THE FRONT of the bus.

It's very confusing.

No wonder they have stuff about not knowing the law is not a defence. With their lousy explanations they don't really expect anyone to know the rules, do they?

(That man is probably an indication of "just poppping back in to heroically rescue a cat like in a movie and then I will exit")

Maria - hahahaha!!!

Signs these days are becoming strangely weird.

I think they're made in China, and we all know they have a weird way of seeing things.

And if you were *really* pedantic, you would have noticed that the shadow does not accurately reflect position of the person in relation to the door frame, as seen here: http://www.pedanticnerd.com/2012/07/26/exit-sign/

Fire exit signs are of prime importance to guard against a sudden fire break out.
