In the event…

During a recent commercial flight, I was perusing the safety briefing card and noted this icon:

Water landing on the safety briefing card.

I don’t know. I think they need some more words on these cards. You see the graphic of the airplane pointing toward the water. Then there’s the red arrows indicating how to exit the plane onto the yellow rafts. But, who knows what all these things are? Could be slip and slides for the party crowd. Of course, the graphics are supposed to avoid the need for multiple translations. Either way, words might soon be a thing of the past and we’ll all write in little pictures like children. Some places do this already.
