Danger Confined Space
This was seen on the side of a grain elevator here in Lincoln. These can be very dangerous, and many people have died in grain elevators. Usually the deaths occur when they are pouring grain out of the bins (into trucks or trains) and the grain stops coming out. In an attempt to unclog things, people will walk on top and try to work it out, which often proves to be a fatal mistake--they get trapped under the corn and suffocate. The only way to get them out is to empty out the entire bin, and this will almost always take too long.
Other deaths have occurred due to people falling off the top of grain elevators.

Creepy. I remember hearing that up there. You just gave me a reason to not complain. Today, that is.

Got another one for you. I took this one outside the Eudora Welty house. Too bad this was next door.
