what's wrong with this picture

found on failblog

i'll be honest, when i first saw this i didn't see what the big deal was. partially that was because i had to scroll down to see the entire image, but also because the safety hazard here doesn't really stick out that much due to it's small size. i suppose if i went in there drunk and with poor aim, the hazard might become shockingly obvious.

the difficulty recognizing subtle forms of danger is a recurring theme in security. that's why tricks like phishing or telephone support scams or malicious email attachments (to name just a few) work so well.
