Talking If life throws an egg at you...

I thought I should put it in official jokes thread, but again, there was a slight angle of technicality to it so created a new thread. If mods feel otherwise, please merge the thread.

I have attached the mail thread, started as a routine forward mail chain. When I tried to disagree, owing to bit of my rational head, it turned hilarious... Please read the mail chain from bottom to top

One guy ignored this and deleted the message. He could never eat an omlette in his lifetime...!!!

If you do that within next 24 hours you will get a fortune and money.

Hi
Please forward this mail to at least seven people through your trusted source and you can see the benefits of eating eggs!!!!

Plenty of water can be found inside washer wiper tank, at your disposal at the flick of steering stalk.
If the intention is to make omelets, fill this tank with salt and pepper. Use window heater mode of AC. You can have your omelet on your next break. But then you would have robbed an egg from the robber!

And bit of pepper and salt drop down....so that we get nice omlete. .
Ask robbers next to time to throw some chicken pieces...KFC kind with masale would be good idea....


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
but omlete gets wasted! how abt having the omlete slide and get collected into glove box?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I got the following reply when I sent it out in my office...
Future solution: create omelet with ‘heat’ button

Press heat button (will come soon!!! If you report this attack to car manufacturers) then glass becomes hot and omelet will fall down from the glass. It clears your vision up to 100%

---------------------------------------------------

It’s a info passed on through well known source…. …..an egggetarian also will know this…. not only a meat eater………. L

And one more thing…. Where will you get plenty of water when you are stuck up with robbers.. J to get PLENTY of water , you need to get down from the car……..

What others say this…………
Thanks & Regards,

Use plenty of water by all means (just make sure not to use boiling water). Perfectly safe!
Do not spread wrong info and panic. If you are a meat eater, U would know these things better ;-)

Very IMP info...........Please follow and tell others
If you are driving at night and were attacked with eggs on your car's windshield , do not operate your wiper or spray any water. Eggs mixed with water become milky and block your vision up to 92.5 %.
You are forced to stop at road side and become victim of robbery.
This is new technique used by robbers.
Take care and Safe Driving.

If you are driving at night and are attacked with eggs on your car's
windshield, do not operate your wiper or spray any water. Eggs mixed with water
become milky and block your vision almost totally.
You will be forced to stop at the roadside and become a victim of robbery.
This is a new technique used by robbers.
Instead, try to get away from the place as fast as you safely can. Stop at a populated place
where help is available.
Also do not stop if you feel a metallic object has hit your car or appear to have fallen off the car.
The reasons are similar.
(tips I received by email from a retired DG, Police, Maharashtra, today)

I got this e-mail too. Wonder if its just a joke or there's some truth in it, checked the net and seems like this is a plausible way to get a driver to stop.

The email that I received said that this technique was used in some of the northern states like Delhi, UP, Bihar etc.

Any confirmations on the use of the Egg attack technique?

This just happened to one of the members in our building and that guy didn't stop. He just sped away andstopped near a mall and cleaned it. This is a new way to rob people at nights

This is something definitely dangerous. The wiper blades may not be able to clean
the egg on the windshield, One need to do it manually.
The best may be, just keep on driving with whatever visibility you have, then stop the car in a convenient place and do the cleaning.?
Robbers are learning new techniques easily?
