street signs, those of the sort telling you where- and how fast to drive,a nd so on. i boldly assume they're made of basicly the same metal, respectively printed on the same metal, everywhere in the world. now, i ask you, what things could you think of, in a normal urban area, would be able to pierce through that metal, leaving cleanly round ltitle, dragged through holes? if it sounds like bullets, there's good reason.
the thing behind this is...making me a little bit paranoid: at the subway station closest to where i live, -the one i usuall use to go downtown -about 8 to 10 minutes away from here by foot-, there's a street sign made in that printed, metal way. today i ahd to go downtown to go soemwhere for an appointment, and as i stood nex tto that sign, waiting for the train, i coincidentally looked at that sign and saw three holes in it. it got me suspicious right away, dince it is metal after all, and i doubt that any softair bulelt, piece of grit expelled by tires or whatever, or any thing else could easily pierce through that metal so cleanly, and all cleanly round, with only a diametre of a few millimetres. i ocne checked on the hinder side fot hat sign and yes, the metal showed these dragged along circumferences that usually get caused by a bullet piercing 'through' it, cleanly. all signs also tell that the shorts of whatever, mist have been aimed upwards, diagonally, since the sign is located higher than a person. the fact that thsoe holes were also not too much distacned from one another, since they all ahd hit this one, single, round sign that also has only a diametre of maybe 30cm or a bit more, i doubt the likelihood of the 'shots' having gotten fired from a greater distance.
now, this really got me paranoid, i must say. bullets of the average handgun size or so, are the only things i could think of to be able to do that, and to be able to leave such marks/traces. the only other thing i found odd, was that at a tree behind it, one single branch ahd been cut off, whcih looked kinda freshly cut, although the angle didn't really seem to match; the branch seemed to be too low and too much rightwards from the seeming angle of the 'shots'.
i now just wanted to ask if you could think of AYNTHING else that could have done this.
i also hoesntly don't know if those holes are actually older already. at least i never noticed them before; sure, located higher, and that small, surrounded by the strong blue of the printing on that sign, you can easily miss that. i also -admittedly only roughly- checked on any news in my hometown, and especially about news about shootings, but the last few happened months, and even more manths ago, and i also didn't find anything about those actions having moved from their different location where they happened, to anywhere around here.
any ideas? *honestly, a bit unsettled*
