By popular demand...

Everyone keeps sending me links to this, so I suppose it's my duty to make some comment here.

Yes, it's the infamous Indian traffic. But watching it? Wasn't so impressed. Where are the zipping buggy rickshaws? Where are the cows lazily meandering down National Highway 8?

I suppose about three hours in the traffic every day inures one to its sheer chaos, and perhaps I should shoot video of my daily commute. But once you've seen several accidents, watched a man on a rickety bike get plowed over with nary a driver batting an eye, and sitting through no fewer than five fender-benders (so routine they didn't cause the driver even to pull over and inspect), people hanging U-ies are no longer so appalling.
