It's all this health and safety business, it's ruining modern life. You can't have a tree in a park any more without having to have a sign saying there is a danger the tree might fall over or an apple might drop on your head. Just think, if Newton had paid attention to the health and safety brigade we would never have had gravity - and where would we have been then? Hurtling around space no doubt. Look at the old Sepia prompt image and what do you see? There is a fountain and lots of people wandering around in silly hats, none of whom have fallen into the fountain and drowned. And look at the modern picture and what is there dominating the scene but a great big cast iron sign saying "Danger". You would never have seen that in the good old days.
