12/16/2002: Paki passenger train
headsplice Monday Dec 16 01:41 PM
wow. that is the only statement that I can make about that image.
Leus Monday Dec 16 02:25 PM
That's a lot of people. Impressive. Some of them seems precariously gripped. A train, lot's of people, a bridge. That's my kind of combination

Oh, they'll never return.
Cochese Monday Dec 16 03:55 PM
How the hell does the engineer know when to stop?
Cam Monday Dec 16 04:43 PM
I think this is a great example of the failings of the phrase "safety in numbers"
Torrere Monday Dec 16 07:33 PM
Probably only when people start banging on the windshield and shouting at him.

Unfortunately there's no such thing as a quick stop (unless it hits something) for a train ... imagine the fun of an experiment in inertia as the train comes to a sudden halt and all those guys clinging to the outside continue to hurtle forward at the former speed of the train.

Torrere Monday Dec 16 09:58 PM
There is not enough information to solve either problem.

Cam. Did you look in the back of the textbook for the answers?
slang Monday Dec 16 10:05 PM
Cam Monday Dec 16 10:06 PM
Me no, that would be cheating, and against my standards. It's a simple matter of solving for the mass of the camels hump after 2 hours of walking. You plug that into (250X-3.443)/33 = Y and walla you have the answer to the first question. And the second question is just common sense.

shouldn't that be viola?
Cam Monday Dec 16 10:42 PM
viola, walla, they are the same, at least when speaking. Now that I reread my post it seems to be lacking,
Torrere Monday Dec 16 11:06 PM
I insist that Cam has it wrong! There is _no_ way that there are 255 chassis riders wearing T-shirts if there are only 250 chassis riders. Saying that they stopped off is invalid because the train is travelling at 60 miles per hour. The number of chassis riders wearing T-Shirts MUST be less than or equal to 250. And don't say they went inside, either, because there would only be 250 Pakistanis out there if the inside was utterly packed, standing room only.

and to think, sitting at the back of the bus caused so many problems for the U.S.
Cam Tuesday Dec 17 02:08 AM
No Torrere they came from inside. They may go back inside but when they pass the camel they will have to go outside to take a leak, due the oke they drank.

Yes that's the word, when I'm just writing stuff with no serious intent I just type things how they sound in my head. And well as you can see sometimes it just doesn't work.
coliano Tuesday Dec 17 09:46 PM
that's a great pic.

Not really. It would be going to same speed, relative to you, whether going in front of you or behind you. So it would just fall to the ground. It wouldn't be a problem unless the train was accelerating or decelerating. (Hm.. Would air resistance be able to slow the liquid that quickly? I don't believe so.)
Leus Thursday Dec 19 09:46 AM
Hm... if you piss in direction of the travel, it does get back to you.

I bet this train hits deer, too. 1/15/2003: Dead deer mystery, but they never make it to the power lines...
