Warnings for the altruistic tourist

June 13th, 2010 · 84 comments

Juliet from Los Angeles came upon this sign near the summit of a 12-km hike up Turrialba Volcano, in Costa Rica. “As I stared down into giant crater of the active volcano, dotted with sulfur pools, I realized the sign was right. Swimming in those pools probably wasn’t worth the expense.”

It is costly to take an injured or dead person out. Avoid unnecessary expense.

The dryly practical approach seems to be a popular one at tourist locations around the world — especially zoos, such as this one on Langkawi Island:

PLEASE BE SAFE - Do not stand, sit, climb or lean on the fences. If you fall, animals could eat you and that might make them sick. Thank you.

Meanwhile, this resort in the Bahamas adds its own whimsical twist:

PLEASE DO NOT DROP CIGARETTE BUTTS ON THE GROUND. THE FISH COME OUT AT NIGHT TO SMOKE THEM AND WE ARE TRYING TO GET THEM TO QUIT.

    The last one – smokers dropping their cigarette butts on the ground – is a pet peeve of mine.

      I can understand being disgusted by second-hand smoke, but to get upset over a dead cigarette means something more like mental illness.

      So some asshole decides he doesn’t approve of smoking and removes the ashtrays…as if that will cause smokers to quit. Then complains about cigarette butts not being properly disposed of.
      I can certainly see the logic in that.

      I’d suggest that, if you’d like cigarette butts properly disposed of, you start a campaign to install more ashtrays in public outdoor spaces.
      Ashtrays are the result of smoking, not the cause of it, so removing them actually causes the problem of improperly disposed of butts.

      Personally, I’d quit…but I don’t want your taxes to go up. ;-)

      I must say, I smoke, and I hate it when ppl toss their cig butts on the ground. But, I also agree with CB…we used to have community ashtrays in our complex, new owner decided to take them out, and ban smoking to outside the gates only. Of course, everyone still smokes inside the gates, but now, they toss their butts on the ground…and our very sweet, non smoking manager, has to pick them up. Although, it’s not that valid of an excuse…I manage to pick up and discard of my cig butts, it’s not that hard, really…you just put it out, and toss it at the next available public trash can. The people who can’t be bothered to do that, are the same ones that toss out their fast food bags and cups on the side of the road.

      Many of you seem to have missed my saying that my dislike of piggy smokers who don’t use ash trays is a ‘pet peeve’.

      It is wrong for anyone to dispose of garbage in public spaces. Cigarettes are especially nasty because they are poisonous.

      Woodsey has a good point, it does seem to be more socially acceptable for smokers to fling their refuse wherever they please. If the same person dumped a loaded diaper on the sidewalk, we’d object. But a cigarette butt? Most people don’t even blink.

      Edit: Thanks, Serenity, that’s exactly my point.

      Just who is eating these poisonous cigarette butts?

      Surely we can pass a law against it.

      Of course we’d object to disposing of soiled diapers in a cavalier manner…we don’t like cholera epidemics.
      I could understand if you were upset about discarded lit cigarette butts because of wildfire dangers and such, we’re all against that, but being poisoned by cold butts?

      Surely you’ve seen candy wrappers, napkins, the list goes on, carelessly dropped countless times and not had as visceral a reaction to it.

      I get it. You don’t like smoking, but take a step back from the brink. The butts aren’t emitting noxious, toxic, lung-damaging fumes and are therefore nothing more than unsightly, as is other litter.

But he didn’t like being hit with red glowing cig butt…Karma.

      Let’s imagine, for a moment, that the “poisonous” aspect to cigarette butts is when, say, a cute squirrel eats the left-overs of a half-smoked cigarette. Very rarely do smokers smoke all the way down to the filter, leaving absolutely none of the contents behind. Not to mention that the chemicals that have now passed through the filter have now made the filter toxic to animals that many don’t want to see die because of someone else’s unfortunate habit.

      Putting the toxicity aside, because that could be debated forever. Then, yes, an improperly disposed of cigarette butt is not much different than an improperly disposed of gum wrapper, for instance. However, if I saw someone toss a gum wrapper carelessly on the ground, I’d be just as upset. It’s not about *what* it is… it’s about the fact that it doesn’t belong where it is getting tossed.

      Now, for a moment, put aside the fact that the two actions (of throwing a cigarette butt on the ground or throwing a gum wrapper on the ground) are equally offensive. For those of us who understand that this is just “going to happen” and that complaining about it won’t “clean the streets”… there are kind citizens who take the time to pick up such objects when seen, and toss them into the appropriate receptacles. The problem is, a gum wrapper can be assumed to be relatively clean. It probably isn’t, but has the chance to be, which leaves hope, even if the hope is unfounded. A cigarette butt, however, has been burnt on one side, and the other side has been in a stranger’s mouth for a good period of time. This leaves the possibilities of either getting ashes on one’s fingers, or some stranger’s lipstick and/or saliva.

      So, really, for those who have to clean up other people’s mess, not all trash is the same… and a cigarette butt is pretty much on the “gross” list, but not as bad as a used diaper as someone else suggested.

      Interestingly, there are far more chewing gum wrappers and wads of gum in the streets than cigarette butts.
      And you don’t have to steam clean cigarette butts off the sidewalk.
      Another interesting thing, guess where used gum used to be frequently disposed of? That’s right!…In ashtrays.

      When was the last time you got a cigarette butt stuck on the sole of your shoe?
      In fact, you’ll probably never even touch someones cigarette butt, but if your hand slides under many surfaces in public places, you’ll likely encounter someones spit-wad of discarded gum.

    I live in San Jose about 50 Km. or so from Turrialba. It’s all kindsa pricey.

    If you’re looking to take out an injured or dead person, there are a number of affordable, yet fine, hospital cafeterias where you can do the former and one Haitian nightclub where you can(without involving Roky Erickson or the 13th Floor Elevators) walk with a zombie.

    The cover charge on the Haitian place is, um, rather stiff, but zombies are way economical in food and beverage consumption, so it all evens out.
    Plus, of course, they’re really good listeners and can stay out late.

      From the Wiki for the film I Walked with a Zombie:

      Singer-Songwriter Roky Erickson, pioneer of the psychedelic rock genre and member of the 13th Floor Elevators, wrote a song titled “I Walked with a Zombie” which appeared his 1981 album The Evil One. Since then, the bands R.E.M., Alice Donut and Elf Power have covered this song.

      I thought it was from Roky’s pre-lockup days with the Elevators.

    Love all of them but the 1st one especially at the moment. Tourists can be such idiots, thinking that because they’re tourists they’re immune from local dangers. I too would be more worried about the costs of taking a dead idiot out than losing the idiot; Darwin had a point after all.

    I find it comforting that fishies get nic fits just like the rest of us smokers!

      I have noticed that the Croc neighbors in the US comic Pearls Before Swine looks a lot like Schnappi. Copy Cat@!!!!!!!

      Oh good, I’m glad someone else noticed Schnappi! I thought he got lost in all the ranting about cigarette butts. Schni-Schna-Schnappi, Schnappi, schnappi schnapp!

    hahaha The last one is my favorite. I have a picture of that sign too. Went there in 2000.
    It’s at the Atlantis resort on Paradise Island.

    I had no idea death was going to be costly and expensive.

    How inconsiderate….I vow to never die and cause someone unnecessary expense. Pardon me!

    I actually agree with the second sign. Those poor animals have done nothing to warrant being stuck in their cages, so get your dumb asses off the fence before you give them a tummy ache too!

    The first one reminds me of this from Kauai:

    Apparenly, only tourists die.

      Possibly because the locals know to not go swimming at beaches with dangerous currents?

      Why I said “apparenl[t]y”.

      But, not that I think locals go to that particular beach much at all, you don’t have to go swimming to get caught there. The warning signs were actually understatements.

    I have been right in front of that sign at Turrialba Volcano after a looong horse ride. Lemme tell you. It is right where you start a hike down into the crater of the volcano (about 1.5 km!) There is ample opportunity for death or serious injury, no doubt about it, and there sure as hell won’t be an ambulance coming to get you. If you aren’t fit, you may set up house there to avoid the heart attack you would get climbing back out.
