Bus shelters are great places for advertisements and other public information. But what if it’s information that you don’t want to publicize . . . like your weight?

This is in Amsterdam (that woman weighs 68 kilos, not pounds), and I’m not sure what the inscrutable Dutch have in mind. Maybe it's supposed to encourage people to forget the bus and walk instead. Or to do what just about everyone in Amsterdam does – ride a bike (like that one at the right edge of the photo.)
