In the Safari accident, that damage is too much for an elephant to do unless he hit it while it was moving at speed.

Elephants hate the color White. They're even known to uproot milestones from the ground and fling them away. Milestones in elephant territory are usually painted yellow.
Somebody should tell that to the guys going on safari.

The elephants also responded aggressively to red clothing, which is characteristic of traditional Maasai dress.

Elephants see in black and white. Tigers see in colour.

And what colour do WHITE elephants hate? Ask Tanveer, he has a diseased one...

Torqy: Good catch. Sidindica, they are two different cars not a single A8 split in to two.

Just wanted to share here with all of you.

JUST A BIKER

I saw you; hug your purse closer to you in the grocery store line.
But you didn't see me put an extra 10.00 in the collection plate last Sunday.

I saw you pull your child closer when we passed each other on the sidewalk.
But you didn't see me playing Santa at the local Mall.
I saw you change your mind about going into the restaurant when you saw my
bike parked out front. But you didn't see me attending a meeting to raise more
money for the hurricane relief.
I saw you roll up your window and shake your head when I rode by.
But you didn't see me riding behind you when you flicked your cigarette
butt out the car window.
I saw you frown at me when I smiled at your children.
But you didn't see me, when I took time off from work to run toys to the homeless.
I saw you stare at my long hair.
But you didn't see me and my friends cut ten inches off for Locks of Love.

I saw you roll your eyes at our Leather jackets and gloves.
But you didn't see me and my brothers donate our old ones to those that had none.
I saw you look in fright at my tattoos.
But you didn't see me cry as my children where born or have their
name written over and in my heart.
I saw you change lanes while rushing off to go somewhere.
But you didn't see me going home to be with my family.
I saw you, complain about how loud and noisy our bikes can be.
But you didn't see me when you were changing the CD and drifted into my lane.
I saw you yelling at your kids in the car.
But you didn't see me pat my child's hands knowing she was safe behind me.
I saw you reading the newspaper or map as you drove down the road.
But you didn't see me squeeze my wife's leg when
she told me to take the next turn.
I saw you race down the road in the rain.
But you didn't see me get soaked to the skin so my son
could have the car to go on his date.
I saw you run the yellow light just to save a few minutes of time.
But you didn't see me trying to turn right.
I saw you cut me off because you needed to be in the lane I was in.
But you didn't see me leave the road.
I saw you, waiting impatiently for my friends to pass.
But you didn't see me. I wasn't there.
I saw you go home to your family. But you didn't see me.
Because I died that day you cut me off.
I was just a biker. A person with friends and a family. But you didn't see me.

Holy!
How did this happened. All members survived inspite of no airbags is quiet good.
It looks like a giant beast has torn the car from front.

@akhilesh, i like your signature.

“I hooked up my accelerator pedal in my car to my brake lights. I hit the gas, people behind me stop, and I'm gone.”

But one problem. You stop and they rear end you.

The only SL55 AMG in Kerala had an accident due to over speeding. The driver lost control & the SL skid out of the highway to a field & had an hit on the right side which caused the side air bags exploded. On the run off the road the front bumber also had a break!

With such cars, fundamental principle is - Drive with grace! If you can't control the power, don't buy! Some people never know the capabilities and limitations of their car, especially on Indian roads...
