I wonder whether anybody will understand this sign in 8000 years... and that is not even a tenth of the time that kind of waste will have to be kept safe.

They might not know what it meant. Recognizing it as "dangerous" is possible, though -- because nature also uses bold designs of black and yellow to indicate Don't Mess With this. Frex, yellowjackets or certain types of poison arrow frogs.

The biohazard design is even better, though, because it uses the "thorn" shape that makes the hindbrain think "sharp = dangerous."
