Do not Consume the Tap Water

In continuing with the Blogversary celebrations this weeks theme will be lessons on signage.

A little while ago there was quite a large water main break in Weston MA. This had very serious effects in Boston where the water was being supplied to. Soon after we were told to boil water before drinking. Immediately after that announcement numerous hypochondriacs went to emergency rooms with stomach issues. There were no actual sicknesses caused by the water.

Someone hung the following sign in the building where I worked.
You may notice that this sign is actually thumbtacked to the wall in my room- leaving you to wonder how the good citizens of Boston remained safe even after I stole the sign?

With Dave's help (a post-doc in my old lab), we hung an even better sign!
