While there are a lot of things out there with questionable purposes, for the most part, you can realize why they exist.
We’re not really talking about those things today. No, today we’re taking a look at some of the most pointless things that are still being used out there for some reason.
via: ImgurDo not pass go. Do not collect $200.
This Pedestrian Crossing
via: ImgurAre there really a lot of cars jumping the curb there? Maybe they're just really thick parking spot lines...
via: ImgurWell thank you, mon ami. That's super helpful.
via: ImgurUnless you can teleport yourself over the grass to the bench, you're violating the very intimidating sign.
via: ImgurWhen you get to the bottom of the stairs, you're supposed to jump onto that wire and continue to the tree where you can eventually shimmy down to the ground. Obviously.
via: ImgurNot a whole lot of leg room there, huh? But I hear rent is quite cheap.
via: ImgurIt's a good thing they made the front of the waterproof because there's no way the back of your foot will get wet wearing these, right?
This Fire Exit
via: ImgurFire! Run through the door right into another row of cars in the parking ramp!
This Fire Extinguisher
via: ImgurSpeaking of fire, how is this supposed to work? I can't translate, but I believe it just says, "Run for your life because this ain't happening, dude."
via: ImgurIt's a bus stop, but no buses actually stop. Makes total sense. Great use of signage. The smiley face is a nice touch though.
This Banana Keeper
via: ImgurBut only if your banana is the exact shape of the container. Otherwise, your banana is doomed to brown on the counter.
via: ImgurI'm just thinking out loud here, but how about you just remove the pole?
And This Sign
via: ImgurWell, it's not a totally pointless sign because now you can be on the lookout for vending machines without the pointless sign and maybe get a cash reward!
via: ImgurGood thing they cleared that up.
via: ImgurI suppose it does serve as a tiny barrier between solid land and the edge of a cliff, but still... The greenery is quite scenic, you have to admit.
via: ImgurSomeone forgot that whole, "Measure twice, cut once" thing. How did this get past quality control?
via: ImgurWhy look out a huge window when you can have the more intimate experience of using a creepy peephole?
via: Fit ClarityDoes normal water just have too many negative calories for you? Have no fear! Diet water exists!
via: ImgurInstead of actually watching clips on YouTube, you can read about the clips you should probably watch on YouTube. Shouldn't this be an e-book?
This Bus Seat
via: ImgurSure, boss. Totally put those bus seat in single file. Mission accomplished.
via: ImgurIt's actually not totally pointless, seeing as it really makes lunch exciting when someone just random drops in there.
via: ImgurYOU SHALL NOT PASS! Actually, go right ahead. We're not going to stop you.
via: ImgurDon't think of them as totally useless stairs. Think of it as a tiny little stage.
via: Bored PandaThe perfect snack to eat alongside your diet water. Don't get too full, my friends.
via: ImgurAre you tired and want to take a load off? Just scale the fence and take a seat right here on that bench.
via: TwitterSomeone had to necessitate this sign, so I guess it's not really pointless. But I say just let natural selection take over.
This Bike Lane
via: ImgurJust pedal to the medal, take a right and then catapult over the railing. Make sure to wear a helmet.
This Wheelchair Ramp
via: ImgurUp one side and...down the same exact side.
via: ImgurUnless they've swapped out wiper fluid for paint remover, I'm thinking that's not going to really work.
