Can You Figgah It Out?

March 31st, 2014

Ok, I'm pretty surah we get some City & County workahs dat read WWD! and I'm hoping one of you guys can answer dis one. Well take a look at da pic first of da corner at Waimano Home Road and Moanalua Road....







Wat do you see? No, it's not da kine trick wea you gotta stare at da pic and something scary jumps out but if you noticed da painted curb, you noticed wat I noticed. Seriously,

Wassup Wit Dat!

How come it's painted blue? Da only thing I could tink of was to show da handicap people dat it was a curb dat allowed handicapped carts..... but how come not on da oddah side too 'den? Did they run out of paint? How come only one curb wen within a 500ft radius there are about nine oddah curbs with da "ramp" but they aren't painted blue? Das da first time evah I seen one whole portion of a sidewalk painted..... so does dat mean those who aren't handicapped can't stand in da blue zone like in parking lots?

Can anybody figgah dis one out?

  5. Makiki:

    What's on that corner? I would bet that the adjacent business/resident painted the sidewalk.


  6. Braddah Lance:

  9. makaha wahine:

    They ran out of paint to finish up the other curbs.


  10. 9th Island Girl:

    New kine graffiti?


  11. wafan:

    Funny, I was looking at the red and green traffic light and didn't even notice the painted sidewalk.

    Kinda odd it would be so green/red while the yellow is so dark.


  12. rayboyjr:

    :cool: Good Afternoon Everyone!!! :cool:

    I've previously worked with curb ramp design, but it's been a while. I've never seen or heard of a requirement or option to paint the curb ramp blue.

    Only have seen them painted yellow or those with the yellow tactile warning "bumps".

    Maybe it was a well-intentioned citizen or citizens who thought it would help with visibility or whatever ...

    they color coding hookers now so hpd knows which ones they can "NOT" have sex with lmfao nah just jokes

    If you want sound even half intelligent with your observations it helps to at least try to speak properly.

    Too tired so hea's da standard response:

    How about trying to figgah out wat kine blog dis is about before you go opening your ignorant mouth? Since you're of da higher intellect, not even surah why you bothered reading a pidgin "spoken" blog.......

    I would welcome you to da blog as I do all new readers and posters but I've already wasted enough keystrokes on your narrow-minded okole.

    btw, if you wanted me to "speak properly", take a look in da mirror and learn to type properly.... your engrish isn't too great either.

    Have an awesome day! :grin:

    I am so glad dat you are fully aware of da LAW and da ONLY ONE to have pointed out da egregious law breaking action....... BUUUUUT........ try and state FACT instead of insinuation next time eh?

    How you know I don't have a GoPro set up and it's recording continuously? How do you know I physically took da photo? Did you see me? How did I take da photo? Camera? Phone?

    FYI - Da Wife was with me in da vehicle and SHE took da photo........ AS SHE ALWAYS DOES WEN WE ARE OPERATING A VEHICLE BECAUSE IT IS AGAINST DA LAW TO USE AN ELECTRONIC DEVICE WHILE DRIVING.

    Das why many a times da pictures not so perfect or comes out blurry.

    You must either be da kine person assume facts not in evidence, nevah have jay walked and certainly nevah have gone 1 mph ovah da speed limit.

    Sorry to have bursted your Sherlock Holmes investigation.
