Fresh Eyes

After watching Johnny Depp ham it up as a quintessential "man out of time" in "Dark Shadows", I was reminded how much fun it can be to periodically look at the world through fresh eyes. For example...

* What would a visitor from the 19th century or another world make of all those rows of symmetrical white lines in an empty mall parking lot? Or...

* What if that same visitor happened onto those vertical cages used in city parking lots or a group of empty utility trucks parked with their crows nests' fully extended? Or...

* Imagine being that visitor, walking in mid-town Manhattan at midnight, looking up at a second floor window and seeing a room full of people on rowing machines, stairmasters and ellipiticals. Even better, how about if that visitor stumbled onto a empty gym with that same equipment. How is this stuff used?

What are your candidates for stuff that could have those visitors scratching their heads?  Elevators, escalators and moving sidewalks in airports or casinos have already been spoken for. But look around with fresh eyes and then share with me and others a few of your ideas.
