In an attempt to broaden our minds, one of Ann Arbor's parking garages has this sign next to the the elevator. This is classic Ann Arbor: well-intentioned ignorance. Every time I walk by, I picture some person designing the sign and proudly patting their own back for being so "ethnic" and "cultural."
I don't understand this sign. Why can Mayan get away with not being qualified as "Ancient" but the Chinese numbers, all of which are still in modern usage, require "Ancient"?
Clearly, this sign has been noticed by other people as well. As a helpful scribbler attempted to point out: Hindu is not actually a language.
