One of the most peculiar things I've ever seen.

    There is a sign, in North Andover, MA in the office park that was the old Lucent Technologies park.
    It's a big sign, and mentions there being an electric vehicle charging station on site.
    I have a new client in that park, so I was excited to see the sign, but less excited to see the charging station:

    Closer look, coin operated:

    So the peculiar part came from when I attempted to read the sign, with instructions on how to use it:

    I'm not a linguist, but I'm pretty sure thats not a language.
    How could you print a sign like that and not notice?
    Where am I supposed to get tokens from?
    Aliens?

    Looks like a regular 120V outlet as well.

    There's a 220 20a back there if I remember correctly.
    Pretty sure it was this guy:
    APX Enclosures, Inc.

    I feel like I need a decoder ring from the "top banner" thread.

    Shoot, my car's not fchiuh4pynu compatible.

    I wonder if the person putting up the sign had any concerns about all the gobbledegook on it.

    Don't laugh, that's probably a $10,000 custom ev charging station which landed the owner a big tax credit!!
