I'm back...

with a new imbecile suggestion!

Wait - that didnt come out right. Rewind. Replay.

I'm back! With a new imbecile suggestion that I read on the BBC website,
right here.

Tell you what... I have an even more radical suggestion. Forget driving at 20mph, that will only halve the number of road deaths. My idea is better still. Here it comes.

If everybody drives at zero mph or less, that would prevent ALL road deaths. Brilliant!


PS. Working on Croatia travelogue. Promises to be a long one.

Shruthi/Meerkat: If there was a Nobel Prize for sarcasm, I'd be VERY hard put to nominate just one reader from my meagre readership! :D

Meerkat - how did you know that Croatia is the land of tall people? you been there? :)

CW said...

I mean, I missed Gonzo.
:-D

thanks for the compliment. it takes one potential nobel prize winner to appreciate the intellectual rigor of the other.

i guessed croatia would be full for tall people after seeing the tennis players like goran ivanisevic(6'4"), mario ancic (6' 6") and ivo karlovic (6'10")

hy can't peoploe take teh bus? i'll tell you why. in my lovely country (the u.s.a.), where i live, there's no bus that passes near my home. if there's one, i haven't see it. there's no train. the only public transposrt here is a plane if you want to go to another city. if theyr educed the sepeed to 20 miles epr hour, i don't know what would happen. people would walk he three miles to the grocery store, i'm guessing. btw, inside one subdivision, i saw the speed limit. 13 miles per hour. from where did they get that arbitrary number?

Hi Shyam
When did you become so spiritual. Did the unusually severe summer in UK affect you.

By the way, you seem to have forgotten me totally. I have sure become sporadic in blogging, but we are friends after all.

Ravi said...

Shyam,
Croatia, eh? Waiting now......
You know me, Ravi?????

Shyam said...

Bee: Hahah, we've all had those days, dont worry! :)

Hari: Me, spiritual? ME??? And no, I havent forgotten you. Who can forget The Hadron? :) I do swing by your blog occasionally, just havent left any comments!

Lakshmi: Been about 4 years since I visited Bangalore. But it's Hyderabad's traffic that I'll never forget!

Ravi: Which Ravi? Is this Ravi-sar, who had a blog that seized the day? :)

lakshmi said...
