The problem with the denizens of the U.S.A. is that they really have no idea about anything outside their Zone 3 trailerpark and don’t realise that we don’t all live there with them ¹.

How on Earth would I know what a fire hydrant is?

Is it some mythical, fire-breathing Greek monster with three heads?

I’ve never seen any of those in the reCaptcha pix.

Or how about a crosswalk?

I mean I know that I probably walk quite aggressively when I’m cross, but I can’t say as I’ve seen anyone in any of those pix who looks particularly angry.

I just don’t get it and have to keep skipping until I see something recognisable, like a bicycle, stairs or traffic lights.

Anyhow …

¹ Well … it’s not living as those of here in the First World know it, but you take my point.

There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live and too rare to die.
