This was actually a banner for the Slush event (technology and startup convention) in Helsinki at Messukeskus (about 20km away from the Helsinki Vantaa Airport). The Slush and MyHelsinki logos at the sides have been cut off from the image and just below the banner there's a sign informing attendees about badge queues.

This may be a little irrelevant but When I was younger and I see Japanese people taking photos of vending machines and roadwork signs. Was wondering why??? Then when I went to Japan I realised that their airports have and vending machines that had can of coke with a neck and their roadwork signs gave bunnies on them.

Not sure if cool or not. Are women supposed to use these and are told so when nursing in public, or is it simply an offer to women who want to have some privacy? First would be nice, but not the second.
