I saw that earlier - almost had a seizure watching it. Wish there was some way to slow it down but I guess that isn't the point.

A year or two ago I got on the very early school bus to Ierapetra and I remember paying the driver and he just said „ sit down.“

So I did and thought i‘d get a ticket later.. but I never did.

 

This morning, I got on the same bus with a bunch of school kids behind me. I recognized his surly face and he made no eye contact..

I paid him, got the ticket and stood my ground.

 

It took him about 3O seconds- then he finally pressed a button and reluctantly gave me the ticket without looking at me...and didn‘t tell me to sit down!

??

 

Edit: typo...DIDN´T get the ticket!

If you open it on youtube, click on the little cog symbol on the bottom right-ish of the play window. Once it opens, you'll see "playback speed" from which you can slow or speed up the pace. I use it quite a lot for music, trying to guess chords or pick out lyrics.

Lesson in how to write (or follow) proper instructions.  Wonder how a robot would do constructing a P&B sandwich, if it followed the same steps?

Looks like it means 'feed the alligators' if it meant the opposite you'd expect a diagonal red line through it...

By the way, there is a stone quarry maybe 10 kilometres down the way here which is pretty similar...not quite so extreme but...similar.

At least the chances of oncoming traffic are pretty low.

Ha, true, Sannerl!!

 But have you ever been on a bus in the Andes? They think the same!!

:lol::lol:

 

Going back over 40 odd years, I was on a bus in Peru and a bloke was reading a newspaper and let out a scream.He read that the day before a bus had fallen off the same, precarious  road, down , down ,down.
