Is this a 3D printer? Did it print the woman also?

Jokes apart, printed Saris are not new, I remember hearing about this many years ago. The technology would have made it easier and cheaper today.

Well, the owner can certainly promote 'Star Gazing' as a prime attraction!

Well it seems the actual translation of this message for a bhpian will be - if you love your car truly then the traffic will kill the joy daily

Amazing. I have had Eglwyswrw topping my list of unpronounceable names for forty years. Zzyzx beats it hands down.


Eglwyswrw is a small place in Wales, UK, and it is not actually unpronounceable, because w is a vowel in welsh language, and it comes out something like eggluzooroo. Not very obvious to the English eye!

One would expect a leading gaming zone company in one of Bangalore's top end malls to pay more attention to their signs. Looks to be straight from the back of a Chinese toy. From Amoeba game zone, Phoenix mall.

From what I know this is common lingo used by real estate brokers in Bangalore. A "sitting" is a meeting for a discussion/negotiation on price before a deal is fixed. In most cases, there is more than one broker involved (a chain of them) so you don't meet the original owner till you meet all other brokers in the chain, this is to ensure each of them gets their cut/commission on a successful sale/deal. In this case, the broker is saying that he will take the prospective buyer to the property owner directly without the involvement of any other broker

The text would've fit comfortably within the margin; if only he had got the spelling right!
