guess what they play?

This rick was seen by me at Andheri flyover. It says Jaharila Group.(Group having Poison).
I fail to understand what this joker wants to say by this??Maybe he or his group wants to spread poison in the air.

Yes. Sadly, this kind of gaffes are everywhere.

It is better here, showing only a kilometre difference. One should see the milestones enroute Sabarimala from Erumely. One says it is 40 km and the very next, barely a few yards down the road, says 18 km, followed by another which says 39 kilometres.

Yes dear, I have seen in hilly areas of Uttaranchal, the villagers will just remove the first number painted distance and leave the next one intact.For example 16 kms will be shown as 6 kms with 1 missing.This is done just for fun.

The same principle was coded into the Windows File Copy/Move dialogue!

Remember the good old days when we use to have soft drinks like Thrill and Rush? I remembered a wacky thing that my friend had done at his home. He cut out names of these two soft drinks from advertisements in newspapers / magazines. He then pasted one each on either side of his washroom door!

The outside of the door would read "Rush" and inside "Thrill"!!

The sign says "Plate Form" instead of platform.

Oops, my bad. Thanks Rohan. Guess the financial year end stress is getting me.
