Awesome Japanese Signs Part 2 of 3

If you have not read part 1, please head there first and then come on back over to this posting.  

Part 1

Part 3 

I figured it would be fun to post about 17 Japanese signs that we saw while traveling around with my best guesses as to what they mean.  Yes, I know my translations will be incorrect.  That is the fun aspect of this game.  Feel free to comment below if you have a better guess than me.  

7.  This one is obviously about paying attention to your surroundings while you are riding on a manta ray.  I am guessing that there has been a huge problem recently of people who are riding their manta rays and then getting attacked by some sort of flying... penguin-fish?
 
Situation Awareness!

 8. Pretty sure this one is related to the last sign.  I am guessing that it is about safely riding a dolphin.  Notice how happy the person/duck is to be riding their very own dolphin.  I did of course look after seeing this sign to find these ever-so-happy dolphin rides, but none were to be found. 
False Advertising

 9. "The calm before the storm - have a rough time."  I realize that this one is in English, but it just needed to be displayed.  I am sure that this phrase is a metaphor for life or some shit like that... but who knows?
Thanks Google Translate...

10.  This looks like some sort of bug on crack.  Like, what the hell is on this shirt?  I honestly want to know.  I am guessing it is some sort of undersea critter that lives near those deep-water vents.  You know, the terrifying amalgamations of deep sea muck mixed with some sort of multi-celled organism that is seen on some weird late-night Discovery Channel documentary.  Yeah, that thing.  Here is a shirt of it.  You are welcome.
Is That Coffee?

11. Panther Ring.  It just sounds so damn wrong.  "Presents for you delicious taste.  Enjoy your happy times with this one."  Please tell me I am not the only one who is misreading this?  Damn, that is just messed up on more than one level.
Rawr!
