Great – Westminster Council are spammers now Surprised

If it was the original sign from the album cover it would be of interest, I guess. Don't people nick the signs anyway?

On our way to the beach once my parents and I found this sign on someone's house:

[Image Can Not Be Found]

I dunno if it's an actual sign from there, or what.

 

Oh and when I click on the link, it says "This listing (280400201240) has been removed, or this item is not available."

I'd like to be, under the sea, in an octopus's garden, with you.

Yes, the link (and thread) is nearly a year old.

I've not been there for a while, but I think the Abbey Road street signs are painted on these days to stop people from stealing them.

Sometimes I watch the Abbey Road live webcam, (I do it when I ask myself why I work too many hours. The answer : To afford a trip to London) and I must say it's really nice from the drivers to stop when someone wants to cross the road and have a pic taken.

 

Or maybe the drivers say "Oh for God sake not another friggin Beatle fan!!". Or maybe I live in a country where zebra crossings are nothing but painting on the street. a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

 

(Actually there's a Mexican joke that if the Beatles had crossed a Mexican street, Ringo and Paul would have been hit by a microbus) a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

I think it varies from country to country. Here in the UK if someone's walking on a zebra crossing the traffic stops for them. I've been to other countries where, like you say, they're more ornamental. I'm not sure what the point of them is if cars aren't going to stop.

Here in Maine, it is a State Law that you have to stop for pedestrians in a cross walk.

Seven years ago,  when I lived in Arizona, you took your life in your hands by being in a cross walk. It may have changed there since then – maybe skye can shed some light on that.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Really Zig?? Wow.. I would have never believed it from an American State!!! In many states and cities in Mexico that law is enforced, but in my hometown is not. It's a quite adventure to try to cross a street. I always sing "Run For Your Life little girl!!!" a-hard-days-night-john-2

An appropriate use of the song – just don't tell MeanMrsMustard – she does not like it. 

Then again, unless she is going to clear traffic for you while you cross the street, you can sing any damn song you want!

Mithveaen didn't notice that the lights had changed!

I like black music, disco music. I like the disco music that's out now - John Lennon, 1975

I saw an example of that coming home. He was running to catch a bus. She didn't want to wait for the next green arrow. Good news -she stopped, but it led to the old standard of false starts – "Are you going?" "Should I go?" "Who do you think you are?!". All in the middle of the intersection so no one can move. a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

Actually the drivers are the ones who don't notice it!! The rule in my city is to go across the street in a heavy traffic avenue is : "Red light? Check. Is any car moving? No? Check. No crazy u-turns? Check… so, 1,2,3… Well I'll rather see you deaaaaaaaaaaaad little girl" and there goes Mithveaen running for her life.

But pedestrians are not that nice either. Sometimes I'm like Skye's situation. I'm like "Should I go or not?" The problem is that in heavy traffic we don't have pedestrian bridges and we do really need them. There are only like 2 or 3 in the whole city. I know, it's something I'm truly ashamed about my hometown.

 

but it's quite amusing to cross the street with that song in my mind a-hard-days-night-john-2

So, nothing has changed on the streets of Phoenix.
