A Traveler and his Cat exploring America.

When we see Egyptian hieroglyphics it makes you wonder how they could possibly mean anything.

Here is the box the solar panels came in.

Notice the little symbols on it.  Each conveys a message 
not unlike hieroglyphics were to the Egyptians. 

This end up
Do not stack more than two high
Do not get wet
Do not stand on
Needs two to carry

What do you think?


  1. The inside door of my deep-freeze is covered with such hieroglyphs - all completely meaningless without the little booklet which came with it, which poses the question "Why open the freezer door when you can just look in the booklet?"

  2. The Egyptians were clever people!

  3. Are you sure that's not "get two duck stormtroopers to carry your big rectangle"?

  4. I think it means you should have a glass of wine and don't forget your umbrella.
