Taking "shooting oneself in the foot" rather too literally!

The pigeons/toilet "error" illustrates rather well the problem translation programs have with Arabic. Both words have exactly the same Arabic script and are, in English - hammam. There is a slight difference in pronunciation which would be indicated by the marks - dots & dashes - you see in written Arabic....but which are often omitted...particularly in signs.

I have seen a man 'walking' a single ladder almost this length, sitting astride it like this, to install wedding lights between buildings. He must have incerdibly strong legs and core muscles.
Carpe diem! :le:

Ladder walking is one of the tricks of the building trade you soon learn when there is no scaffold. I wouldn't try it now at my age though. One day I hired a pair of plasterers stilts for a just out of reach ceiling job, spent more time getting back up of my arse than working, a most difficult maneuver, bit like a giraffe attempting to right itself after a split legged fall.
Life is your's to do with as you wish- do not let other's try to control it for you. Count Dusak- 1345.
