Question: what vehicle has the following features?

~ standstill to topspeed in the shortest time
~ topspeed to standstill in the shortest time too
~ cheapest to buy on planet earth
~ auto re-fuelling (100% green, running on renewable natural energy sources)
~ auto cruise
~ no road tax, no insurance needed

Ans: bullock cart

Salman - this thing is good. where is the OBDII port? is it running a remap? what about CAI? Turbo-charged?

Agreed. And being an Indian, I look at it as disrespect towards food.

Actually i won't look at it as disrespect towards food. If you observe, their co-ordination is fantastic, not a single piece is dropped to the floor or being wasted. The catcher dude is expertly getting hold of them and passing them on to the next guy for frying.

Wow. To tell the truth, I had never seen this kind of action/co-ordination here. In fact in Pune it is not common at all !!

I was wondering why he beats the plate just before he throws, then I realized its the audio-signal input for the receiving guy. Amazing. And me too don't see this as disrespect to food. Such coordination you can see the way they make tea in the south -
Take a look

I think it's to balance himself. He throws the two hands in opposite directions at the same time. Else he will have to shift his body every time he throws it. I don't think the receiver needs a signal.

similar to Rajini who slaps his two hands together to throw his cigarette up in his mouth. Try it yourself, it makes it really effortless.

EDIT: both are done subconsciously.
