What does it do?

I took this picture on a German railway station. This is the front panel of a ticket-machine. By pressing the left button I hoped for a little black flag to pop out the top of the machine, waving in the wind. Instead, the screen language changed. Bit of an anti-climax but at least the first time I encountered such a type of a machine with language selection.

The financial crisis hits Denmark

Copenhagen Airport


I appreciate the Munich airport being concerned with my safety when it comes down to people throwing fire extinguishers to my head...

Elevator improvement

By sticking information about the various floors on the door of an elevator, one makes waiting on the elevator to arrive less annoying...

Nice detail: note that the black arrow on the left door actually points out where you are right now.
