Well I had a scary encounter with one of the "Locusts". Late one night after dropping off a friend I got back on to the center lane. This biker overtakes me from my left, tries to cut and Bingo - goes into a skid ahead of me spraying a lot of sparks. The guy wore no helmet, was thrown off and did a few rolls on the road. Fortinately I was still on my 2nd and could slam my brakes and pull off the road completely shaken. The guy and the bike survived with a few bruises. When he started looking for something, I walked up to him and was told that he was looking for his brand new Tag-heur. All he could get was only its strap. Maybe the lost watch must have taught him a lesson

Typical Chennai-event. It happens every minute at some part of Chennai, and if you think Chennai-bikers would ever learn any lesson whatsoever?
Think again.. its "Two-Wheels-No-Brains" in Chennai, my friend.!!!

Too much . Seems this poor fellow has been bhaiya-d a lot of times, much to his fervent protests.

Cool how shocked can you be?

time-10.30 wed.night,place-pune,road-dhole patil road,destination-lush the pub,car-friends OHC. i and my friend were discussing about a topic while going on that road,v were just about to reach Lush,no street lights on that road. v were easily cruising at 45-50kph. i see something large in size lying on the road and think its a dead/sleepin dog and go the otherside to avoid running over it,the distance was about 10 mtrs. then to the ultimate of both our lives! that creature got up and sat on the road AND AND it was not a dog ladies and gentleman it was a freaking MAN who acutally sat up within one second when we were about to dodge it and go past him. v both said "oh freak" at once and we pulled over and got down to see what was the case of this maniac,sitting in the middle of the road. v obviously did'nt go too close but i asked r u ok? thinking that it was a hit and run case! he looked at me sans RED EYE REDUCTION.my friend smiled
at me and said "he's drunk and sloshed" we carried him on the footpath and made him comfy till the sun rises.we entered the club with a smile and a bit terrified!! but it went well atleast we put him in a safe place .

Default Kiss and drive

Was really amuzed to see this sign outside the Brussels Airport

Didn't understand the meaning then. Later googled find out the below,

"it was refreshing to see Belgians with a sense of humor. The “Kiss and Drive” signs at Brussels National Airport guide visitors to the passenger drop-off point, where families and lovers bid farewell with a kiss.
In a time of hyper-paranoia and over-regulation in airports, it’s charming to see a security sign that instead makes you smile.""

Information Courtesy: Kiss and Drive = thornet =
